Cree Glavas

Cree Summer Glavas, 33, crossed over to paradise in the early evening of October 18, 2023, at Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit. Surrounded in passing by her parents, Tracy Mays and John Glavas, her heart's treasure and only child, Andrea Elena Hawkins and beloved baby sister, Seneca Mays-

G lavas, with the close support of a few relatives and close friends. 

Cree is survived by many family members. She leaves to mourn, her mom Tracy Mays; dad John Glavas; and her most beloved sister and closest friend, Seneca Mays-Glavas and her family, the young, Ariana Amor Garcia, and son, Emiliano Roman Garcia; and her paternal grandfather John James Glavas. Other family members that she leaves to cherish her memory include John Mays, Judith Mays, Esther Helms, Ralph Mays, Sharon Cole, Cathy Floyd, Christa Hodge, and Sophia Glavas 

Cree was preceded in death by family members, Esther Mays and Isiah "Bob" Mays, Evelyn Smalley, Linda Mays Lindsay and Marion Crawford. 

Cree was born April 9, 1990, in Detroit. She was a MPHS graduate and attended MJ Murphy Beauty college in Mt. Pleasant, studying Cosmetology. She was baptized in Christ by Pastor George B. Glass at her church home, Christian Chapel Church ("3C"), Southfield, Michigan. Cree was a SCIT tribal member. She loved all things artistic; she loved music, drawing, and made gorgeous dreamcatchers and marketed them online to a growing clientele. Cree was a tribal advocate and donor of life. 

In her quiet hours, Cree embarked on a self-satisfying artistic entrepreneurship. Having a penchant for creativity, she made exquisitely beautiful Native dream catchers with a successful online market startup. Her dreamcatchers exhibited her unique personal pizzazz and were a beautiful mix of her innate Detroit urban glam combined with her Saginaw/Chippewa "rez" daringness and earthy Native spirit.
