Obituary of Diane Glidden

Please share a memory of Diane to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.

Diane M. Glidden - age 70, of Somerville, Maine died suddenly at home after a one-year battle with lung cancer. She was born in Augusta, Maine on May 1, 1953, the daughter of the late Richard and Jaqueline (Roy) Bouffard.

Diane grew up in Augusta and graduated from Cony High School while working at Edwards Mill in Augusta where she met her husband of 52 years in 1971.  They built a home in Somerville and raised two children. Diane worked as an Ed Tech at Somerville School, then worked at Maine State Retirement System for 28 years until retiring in 2018. 

Diane enjoyed road trips with her husband, a Florida trip for her daughter's wedding, and South Carolina trips with her sister. She enjoyed shopping, reading, watching movies, and babysitting her grandson at his home on Pushaw Lake. One of her greatest blessings in life was becoming a "Memere" to her only grandchild in 2020. Her amazing chocolate chip cookies, calm demeanor, and wonderful sense of humor will be missed by all.

Diane was pre-deceased by her son, Richard D. Glidden.

Diane is survived by her husband, Raymond Glidden of Somerville, ME; her daughter, Christie Sickles and her husband Robert, and grandson Kolton, of Old Town, ME; her brother Paul Bouffard and his wife Linda of Randolph, ME; her sister Elsie Barnett and her partner Danyl Hoague of South China, ME; as well as many aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins, in-laws, and friends.

A graveside service will be held at Holy Family Cemetery, Townsend Rd, Augusta, ME in May, followed by a gathering of family and friends. Details to come later.

Arrangements have been entrusted to Direct Cremation of Maine, 182 Waldo Ave, Belfast, ME.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made on Diane's behalf, to the American Lung Association
