Mrs. Glynda May Bartley
Glynda May Bartley, 67, was called away by the Lord on August 13, 2020, in her home peacefully. She was born on February 25, 1953. She was a longtime resident of Kingsport, TN, and formerly of Clintwood, VA. She retired from Kingsport Answering Service after over 20 years of service.
Glynda enjoyed gardening, watching TV and movies, reading and storytelling, yard-selling, and drawing in her free time. Her smile would light up any room she entered and she could always make you laugh. She was a beloved “mama” to her grandchildren, and they were her "sunshines". Glynda’s final days were surrounded by her family at home.
She was the daughter of the late Arizona Stanley, sister of the late Eugene Stanley, and companion of the late Earl Bartley.
She is survived by her sister Mary R. “Polly” Montgomery; son, Brian Stanley and girlfriend Andrea McFarlane; daughter, Beth Miller and husband Mark; step-daughter Heather Bartley; step-son, Rick Bartley;
grandchildren, Megan Sanlin and husband Jake; Faith Stanley; Tanner White; Mark Miller, Jr.; Sidney Miller; and Caitlyn McFarlane; great-grandson, Zechariah Sanlin; nephews, Joe Stanley; Christopher Stanley; Gary Sykes; and Steven Craig; nieces, Lisa Baker and Michelle Stanley; as well as a host of beloved cousins, family, and friends.
