Terry Glover, Ebony managing editor and veteran magazine executive, dies at 57

(December 26, 2012) Terry Glover, managing editor of Ebony magazine and veteran publishing executive, died in her Chicago home on December 24. Glover, 57, had been battling colon cancer for the past two years.

A widely respected editor throughout the publishing industry, Glover was well known for her work in both the print and digital arenas. "Terry was the heart and soul of the Ebony team," said Amy DuBois Barnett, editor-in-chief of Ebony. "She was one of the best editors I've ever worked with, and had a lovely kind demeanor and a fabulous sense of humor. The Ebony team will feel her absence every single day."

Johnson Publishing Co. chairman, Linda Johnson Rice, said "Terry touched many with her warm spirit and glowing smile during her six years with Johnson Publishing. Her contributions to Ebony were innumerable and her passion shone through in everything she did. Terry will be greatly missed."

A native of Indianapolis, Glover grew up and attended high school in St. Louis before moving to the Chicago. She earned a B.A. in Communications from Northwestern University and a M.S. in Journalism from Roosevelt University. During her 20-year career in publishing, she held numerous positions including managing editor at Savoy magazine, Chicago editor for Uptown magazine, digital editor for and writer for the Chicago Tribune.

Glover joined Ebony as a senior website editor of in 2006 and was promoted to managing editor of Ebony in 2009.

"She was really about moving the black community forward on all levels -- especially on an artistic level," said a longtime friend, filmmaker Barbara E. Allen. "She was dedicated to the arts, and her work has had a such profound influence."

Ebony plans to print a memorial to Glover in the next issue. "Terry is completely irreplaceable," Amy DuBois Barnett said. "We will find someone to fill in her editorial functions, but in terms of the glue she was for our team, that's not replaceable. All of us at Ebony loved her."

Mrs. Glover is also survived by her husband of nearly 20 years, Kendall Glover, and their daughters, Parri Finister and Maya Glover. The family is planning a celebration of her life to take place in early January.
