Kerrie (Sloniewski) Glembocki

Our lovely Kerrie Glembocki (Sloniewski), age 37, passed away suddenly on February 8, 2019 from a brain aneurysm. We are struggling for answers as to why such a young wonderful person was taken from us so soon.

Kerrie was born in 1981 in Wilmington, Delaware to Gene and Debbie Sloniewski. We had no idea at the time, but that day, a true angel was brought into our lives. She graduated from University of Delaware in 2004 and built a successful career at MBNA/Bank of America over 17 years, where most recently, she was a Vice President in the Marketing department. She was a devoted wife to her husband, Brian, but the role in life that she relished most was that of Mommy to two adorable little girls, Jocie and Ellie. Kerrie was the absolute best mommy around and always doing fun and creative things with her children, such as setting up a bounce house in their living room for her children and their friends to jump. She always had the best snacks in her house. Kerrie loved sushi and crabs and spending lots of time with family in Bethany Beach and Lewes. One of her favorite activities was exercising at 9round. She was an active volunteer, creating sets for her daughters’ dance recitals at Dance Delaware and participating in the Bank of America volunteer network. She also loved to have fun. She was constantly planning parties and decorating to make every holiday extra special and really looking for any excuse to get together with friends and family. Above all, Kerrie was a true superstar, the kindest, most generous and FUN person we ever knew. She was selfless, lived life to the fullest, and always had a bright smile on her face. We will truly miss her and will never forget her.

Kerrie is survived by her beloved husband, Brian; her daughters, Jocelyn (9) and Ellie (8); her parents, Gene and Debbie; her brother, Chris and sister Pam Tucker (Matt); her in-laws, Harry and Sue Glembocki and sisters-in-law, Alison Osborne (Jim) and Sharon Villaverde (Cris); her dog Hondo; and many nieces and nephews.

Funeral Services

Family, friends and others whose lives she touched are invited to Chandler Funeral Home (2506 Concord Pike, Wilmington, DE) on Saturday, February 16 at 10 am to reminisce, grieve, and share fun stories about Kerrie. The viewing is from 10 to 11:30 and a service will follow from 11:30 until noon.

    Kerrie you were a bright light in our lives and I will always remember all the family times together over the summer - I am so sad you were taken from us so soon, I will always remember the family picnic and wiffle ball games, Kerrie's deviled eggs, and the August annual pilgrimage to get the large plastic plants you carted down Evans Avenue from the St, Ann's Bazaar to add Debbie's collection. You were the youngest fun cousin and loved life to the fullest and the reason everyone loved you so much!! I will always remember you that way, beautiful and smiling. To Brian & the Girls ( Jocie & Ellie) , Debbie & Gene, Pam & Matt, and Chris broken hearts mend over time but hers will never be replaced. Please take comfort she is following you all from above - hugs and our deepest love to you all!

    I am shocked and deeply saddened by this terrible news. I worked with Kerrie the past 6 years from the other side of the fence -- I am with Harte Hanks, a partner agency of Bank of America. I loved working with Kerrie. She was always upbeat and positive. And though I never met her in person, I knew from her voice that she always had a smile on her face. My heart breaks especially for her family and friends. But please believe me when I say her light and kindness reached far beyond those she saw every day. I will miss you, Kerrie. And I'll remember your cheerful voice and all the little things you did for the Harte Hanks team over the years. God bless you.

    I had the absolute pleasure of working with Kerrie as a Bank of America vendor partner since 2013. Kerrie was such a kind-hearted spirit, always positive and upbeat. She was the real deal - genuinely lovely in every respect. She would always run up to me with a hug and a hello when I visited the Wilmington office. As a client, she was what every agency appreciated - always prepared, thorough and quick to respond. She will be missed by all who were blessed to know her. I am keeping Kerrie and her family and friends in my thoughts and in my prayers during this difficult time.

    Kerrie was a beautiful person who showed me so much kindness when we worked together. I was lucky enough to sit right next to her in 2000/2001 at First USA when we were on one of the night shift collections teams. She was never anything but extremely pleasant to me. She even organized a team baby shower for me in the summer of 2000. We were the same age 19-20 at the time. I’ve never forgotten what a wonderful person she was. I’m so sorry for your loss.

    It’s true, she was an angel. I had the pleasure of knowing Kerrie for the past 10 years both inside and outside of work. Throughout the years she became one of my closest friends. Every morning upon entering the garage at work I’d look for her car. If I saw it, I’d say to myself, “today won’t be so bad, Kerrie is here.” I truely loved and cherished our friendship. She was beautiful on the inside and out. She was the most positive person I knew. Her smile was contagious. My heart and prayers go out to her family, especially Jocie and Ellie. They have a real guardian angel now. May they always feel her by their side. “Some people come into our lives, leave footprints on our hearts, and we are never the same." - Author Unknown

    I had the true blessing and honor being around Kerrie at MBNA/Bank of America the last 17+ years. I'll forever cherish her positive "can-do" attitude, funny stories, smile and laughter that got us all through anything and everything and her creativity beyond belief. I'll never forget our BOAST (Bank of America Spirit Team) days, planning events that were decorated and executed flawlessly all because of Kerrie! I struggle to understand the "why" behind her passing but believe it was time for God to have a "Shabby-Chic" angel in heaven.

    I had the pleasure working with Kerrie at the bank. Our morning routine would be walk to the café, grab a light snack and talk about the “Reality Shows” from the night before. In the afternoon our conversations were about her beautiful daughters. I will miss her contagious smile, her positive outlook on life and all the talks we had about everything. Kerrie always brought joy to everyone she came in contact with and will be dearly be missed. Heaven gained an amazing angel!

    I met Kerrie in October 2005 when I moved from NJ to DE. She was one of my mentors in the department I was in. From that first day until the last time I saw her last October, that contagious smile was always her norm. One of the most positive minded people I've ever encountered. I sit here today confused, hurt, and sad. Such a loving wife, mother, daughter, aunt and friend. My sincere condolences goes out to her husband Brian, their daughters and the entire family. I know one thing is for certain, Heaven became an even better place now that Kerrie is there. You are loved and missed more than you'll ever know. Rest In Peace Kerr Bear.

Kerrie was a beautiful person inside and out and always had a smile on her face and laughing even while blowing up balloons 🎈, decorating for one of our events then we would eat pizza afterwards (of course she always picked her favorite place, Dimeos ).

    I have struggled to find the right words and honestly, there are no words to describe the pain I’m going through right now. I have had the pleasure of working side by side with Kerrie over the past few years and during that time, our friendship has grown into something very special. I’ll always remember our daily conversations during the years, from stories about family, going on vacation, our girls growing up, work issues, but most importantly what she was ordering from Amazon that day. She loved finding new things and got me hooked on StitchFix. We finally introduced our girls since they were the same age, and it warms my heart to know that our girls are now great friends, just like Kerrie and I. She was a beautiful person, inside and out and will always hold a very special place in my heart. I miss you dearly my friend and I will be forever grateful for the friendship that we built. Sending my love and deepest sympathy to Brian, Jocie, Ellie, and the entire family.

    I have known Kerrie since she was little girl. Kerrie and her family have been our Bethany Beach neighbors since 1986. I have watched Kerrie grow up to be a fine, beautiful, young woman, devoted wife, fantastic, caring, loving mother, and a wonderful daughter and sister. Kerrie and I spoke often about the beauty and peace we both experienced when sitting on Lewes Bay beach. I am truly saddened by her loss. I will miss seeing her beautiful smile and speaking with her at Bethany Beach when she would visit her parents. She is a beautiful angel with a sweet and gentle spirit. She touched many lives while she was here on Earth. God Bless you, Kerrie, and thank you for all you have done to make this world a better place. Love you, Terry (Mrs. Bishop)♥️💕♥️💕♥️
