WEST GARDINER – Bobbi-Jo Glidden, 32, born April 10, 1981, passed away unexpectedly Feb. 7, 2013, at her home.
Jo-Jo had an infectious laugh, loved animals and playing games on Facebook, as well as doing crosswords and working at local fairs in the family business and bowling. She loved spending time with family and friends and will be missed by all. Jo-Jo could always be counted on to be there whenever someone needed a helping hand, such as taking care of her grandmother, Carol, in her final months without ever a word of complaint. BJ was a graduate of Gardiner High School.
BJ was predeceased by her grandmother, Carol J. Glidden; and great-grandfather, Norman Grasse Sr., both of West Gardiner. Bobbi-Jo is survived by her fiancé, Richard Malcolm Jr. of West Gardiner; parents, Wayne and Wanda Besaw of West Gardiner; sister, Amber Lynn Feyler and husband, Harley, of Waterville; brother, Adam Christie of West Gardiner; grandparents, Charles and Charlotte Glidden of Texas; great-grandmother, Barbara Grasse of West Gardiner; as well as aunts, uncles, nieces, and nephews; dog, Cuddles; and cat, Tiggy.
A celebration of her life was held Tuesday, Feb. 12, at Staples Funeral Home, 53 Brunswick Ave., Gardiner. In lieu of flowers, the family appreciates donations to help cover funeral costs, as Bobbi-Jo had little to no insurance. Donations can be forwarded to Staples Funeral Home, P.O. Box 598, Gardiner, ME 04345.
