NANCY RUTH GLIDDEN
POWNAL – Our new family Guardian Angel, Nancy R. Glidden, 82, passed peacefully July 9, 2019 at Maine Medical Center, Portland, Maine with her family at her side. Nancy was born December 18, 1936, in Boston, daughter of Norman J. and Charlotte (Mann) Letteney.
Nancy graduated from Brewer High School, Class of 1954. Shortly after graduating, she met Burnal (Bunny) A. Grant, Holden, Maine while roller skating; which later led to marriage June 9, 1956. Nancy and Burnal lived in Savannah, Georgia until October 1956 when Burnal finished serving his 4 years in the Air Force. After his honorable discharge in 1956, they moved to Bangor, Maine for about 1 year and then eventually settled on the Davis Road in the quiet town of Eddington in 1957. They celebrated 25 years of marriage with two boys, Scott R. Grant and Steven R. Grant. During this time, she worked as an Avon Sales Representative, Holbrook Middle School (Holden) Principal Secretary, and Cosmetologist. In 1982 Nancy and Burnal divorced. Shortly after their divorce, Nancy met Frank A. Glidden and they married on December 27, 1987. They stayed married until Frank passed on October 31, 2009.
In 2010, Nancy moved to Gray, Maine to be closer to her family. Shortly after moving to Gray, she met Carlo Tucci, Pownal, Maine, where they had developed a close and loving relationship enjoying each other, playing Bingo, traveling, and spending time at the Freeport Elders; where she made many more friends. Nancy was an extremely giving and loving person that seemed to always think of others before herself. She also loved good food consisting of fried clams, lobster, and clam chowder without potato.
Nancy has one sibling/surviving sister, June Hogue. Surviving in addition to her sister June are her two sons Scott R. Grant and Steven R. Grant, as well as two lovely daughter-in-law’s, Jennifer R.
