FRANKFORT - Glenyce Elaine Spaulding, 71, died peacefully at home on May 31, 2014, surrounded by four generations of family who dearly loved her. She was born Aug. 31, 1942, and grew up in the areas of Bucksport and Blue Hill, graduating from George Stevens Academy in 1959.
Glenyce loved a good time and was especially fond of Nascar racing. She looked forward to her retirement when she and her husband could travel around to the races but, instead, she spent the last seven years struggling to recover from a double stroke after a surgical procedure. She never lost hope that she would regain her strength and her tenacity and courage was remarkable.
Glenyce was predeceased by her parents Wallace Linwood Leach, Sr. and Eva Towle (Murch) Leach; an infant brother, Jimmy; and a brother, Wallace Linwood Leach, Jr. She is survived by her devoted husband of 51 years, Edward Charles Spaulding and their children, Flint Edward Spaulding and his wife, Robin, Scott William Spaulding, Mark Wallace Spaulding and his wife, Karrie, and Robin Elaine Homstead and her boyfriend, Stacey Roberts; grandchildren, Matthew Spaulding, Haley Spaulding, Scot Smith, Kristina Muncey, Kimberly Spaulding, Alexis Spaulding; Jonathan Spaulding, Daniel Rainey and his wife, Sara, and Kelly Rainey; great-grandchildren, Mackenzie Rainey, Alyssa and Andrew Rainey, and Brody Muncey; brother, Jesse Leach and his wife, Dedra; sister, Patricia Hutchins and her husband, Sherman; sister-in-law, Joanne Bean; her aunts and uncles, Ruth Sherman, Patsy Woods, Doris Adams, and Gladys and Norris Leach; and numerous nieces and nephews. Glenyce and her family are especially appreciative for Lisa Young, a special friend who helped care for her during the last seven years. Visiting hour will be held 11 a.m.-12 p.m. Thursday, June 5, at Mitchell-Tweedie Funeral Home, 28 Elm St., Bucksport, where a funeral service will be held at 12 noon Thursday. Burial will be immediately following at Grove Cemetery, 21 Belmont Ave., Belfast. Family and Friends are invited to gather following services at Edward Spauldings residence in Frankfort.
