John and Rosemary Colglazier

John and Rosemary ColglazieJohn M Colglazier was born October 19, 1917 in Washington County, Indiana, the son of Ollie Calvin and Maude Bosley Colglazier.  John and his wife Rosemary have two children Sue Wheeler of Greenwood, Indiana and John Trent Colglazier of Salem, Indiana, they also have two granddaughters, Shelby and Kaitlyn Colglazier.

John was a graduate of Salem High School in the Class of 1935. 

Before John was employed by the State Bank of Salem, he worked at the Farm Bureau Co-op.  He then became the branch manager for the bank at the Hardinsburg Branch from 1962 to 1969 and then became the President of the State Bank of Salem in 1969 and retired from this position in 1985.

John will always be remembered as a good and fair person by each and everyone that knew him.  β€œHe had such compassion for each person he dealt with, whether it was a customer or an employee of the bank,” remembered Jeanette Nolan.  β€œI think it would be safe to say that we all learned a lot of valuable lessons from John during our different tenures at the bank.  Because of all the fond memories we share of John, the former employees of the State Bank of Salem are honoring him with a Touch Tomorrow Fund at the Washington County Community Foundation.”
