CORINNA -- Glenna Elizabeth Bartlett went to be with her Lord and Savior on July 12, 2012. She was born Sept. 17, 1918, in Hartland. She was the daughter of Edward T. Burton and Carolyn Goodwin. She attended Hartland public schools. She was a homemaker until after the death of her husband, William, in 1968. At that time, she went to work at Edwards Co. in Pittsfield, until her retirement.
She married William Bartlett on Dec. 21, 1940, in St. Albans. William and Glenna made their home in Hartland until 1960, when they moved to St. Albans with their three children.
She enjoyed knitting, crocheting and tatting, which she lovingly shared with friends and family. She knit preemie hats and outfits for Eastern Maine Medical Center in Bangor, along with knitting 300 helmet liners for the troops in Iraq and Afghanistan. Glenna was a gifted artist who painted many scenes of Maine landscapes and wildlife in oils and acrylics. She also loved to fish and watch the wildlife around her home. She would be sure to call her many friends ranging from the very young to the very old when a particularly interesting species came to visit.
Glenna is survived by her children, Gary Bartlett, of Corinna, Dale Bartlett and wife Pat, of Gorham, Mary-Elizabeth, of Corinna; adopted daughter, Maylene Neal, of St. Albans; two grandchildren, Karen Bartlett Pike and husband Mike, of Taylors, S.C., and Timothy Bartlett, of Gorham; and several nieces and nephews and their families.
Glenna was predeceased by her husband, William Bartlett; her brother, Clancy Burton; beloved niece and dear friend, Janice Burton McAllister, along with her husband, Erwin; several cousins; and close friends.
Glenna's family wish to invite her friends and family to the celebration of her life from 2 to 4 p.m., Saturday, July 21, 2012, at Faithfoun' Horse Farms, 204 Bond Road, Corinna.
