Glenda StricklandAugust 2, 1946 ~ March 13, 2017 (age 70)
Glenda Strickland, 70, of East Hampton passed away at Marlborough Rehab surrounded by family. Glenda loved being near the water, even if it was just a little stream. She would have given the shirt off her back to anybody in need. She went through a lot in her life, losing her son Matthew to muscular dystrophy in 2007. And even through all of the pain she still managed to smile, just to make sure her friends and family were okay. She would spend hours everyday on the phone talking to her sister Frieda in Maine. Even though she lives in Maine Glenda's face would light up just knowing that she would be talking to her sister. Glenda would tell everybody how much Frieda meant to her. She is predeceased by her son Matthew. She is survived by her husband Paul of 50 years and their children Tonya, Kevin, and, Paul. She's also survived by her grandchildren Michael, Katie, Nick, Nathan, Stacy, Linnea, Benji, Paul Jr., Jeromy, Marcus and Nicole. She's also survived by her great grandchildren Michael Jr, Wyatt, and Linnea, and many, many friends. Friends may call on Saturday March 25, 2017 from 10am to 11am at the Spencer funeral Home 112 Main St. East Hampton followed by a service at 11AM. Burial will be private in Swedish Cemetery in Portland. In lieu of flowers memorial donations may be made to the Muscular Dystrophy Assoc. at www.mda.org.
