DEATH
Beatrice Glacken
Sep 26, 2014

Beloved Beatrice Glacken left this world on September 26 at Tobey Hospital. She was 88 years old. Bea was born on December 8 in New Bedford to Thomas Payne and Marie Claudina Beatrice Veronneau. She was sister to both the late Bill and Tom Payne and aunt to the late David Payne. Bea is survived by her nephew, Kevin Payne of Alameda, CA and her two “chosen” daughters, Kathy Macomber of Onset and Julie Rickard of Fayetteville, Arkansas. She is sorely missed by them and by her “friend family” in Molena Georgia and here in the Wareham area. Bea spent her young adult years in New York City and later in San Francisco, CA. Most of her work life was spent serving in restaurants and later, in hospitals. Bea traveled in many states and several countries at a time when few women in her social class did so. She married Irishman, Patrick Glacken, residing in Ireland for a time after his death. She later met partner Kelly Gay in CA and moved to rural Georgia. In 1993, she returned to her beloved coastal Massachusetts. Bea became an active volunteer at Tobey Hospital where she served for 17 years. She was a member of the cardiac rehab group there for the last nine years and could be seen riding her bike around her neighborhood, Mogan Park, until about a year ago. If you had the good fortune to know Bea Glacken, you know how extraordinary she was. When she turned her blue eyes on you, you felt special, blessed by her magical attention. Bea was ready with a good joke, a jar of her homemade jam, a bar of her infamous fudge, or a well-crafted poem, depending on the occasion. Bea was a prolific poet who wrote until only a few weeks prior to her death. Bea’s poetry celebrated her own life and the lives of those she befriended. She published her first chapbook “Poems” in 2007 followed by “Echoes and Reflections” in 2011. Her two final books will be printed posthumously. Bea’s passion for life and her ability to share it profoundly touched many in our community. If you are among these, her final wish was for you to raise a glass in celebration of her life. Her memorial is private. May Bea’s powerful words and example of how to live a full, joyous life, along with our sweet memories keep her sparkling spirit vibrant. May we carry on with her humor and boundless generosity. O, how we miss you, dear Bea. How thankful we are to have known and been toved by you. From “POEMS”, #44 Child-river that leans and tosses through this old forest The trees reflect the bouncing sun that rides within you, and rustle and bend to watch you in your youth. These brown trunks that long ago stretched thin, inquisitive roots through this earth, still feel the thrill of young life and growth. As I walk through this bowl of unclaimed beauty I hear within me echoes of forests that will begin and grow through my own earth-covered body. Then, I, too will become part of this soft mystery. -Beatrice Glacken,

DEATH
Dennis "Yuen" Wong
Sep 22, 2014

Dennis "Yuen" Wong, born on December 22, 1933, the son of the late Charlie and Jade (Woo) Wong, has gone to be with our Lord, Jesus Christ and his beloved wife, Ann Claire (Foley) Wong who passed away in February 2014. Dennis departed this world suddenly and totally unexpectedly during his nap on Friday, September 12, 2014. We rejoice in knowing that he is now living in the Kingdom of God, in His love and glory, but he will be deeply missed by his children, relative and friends. Dennis graduated from Tabor Academy and then served in the U.S. Army. After being honorably discharged, he came back to Mattapoisett and worked in the family business, Cathay Temple,as chef and part-owner. In 1963, at his brother Stephen's wedding, he met the love of his life and married Ann Claire Foley in 1964. Dennis continued working in the family business until it closed in 2000. He then joined his daughter in Downtown New Bedford when she opened Daffodil's Restaurant. He would often be seen sitting outside of the restaurant in a comfortable chair, smoking and having an iced coffee with one of the customers. He enjoyed talking with people. As we look back and think about Dad, we realize how much he loved us unconditionally and enjoyed being a Dad. He nurtured us, encouraged us and listened attentively, but not always understanding because we drove him crazy. He taught us to forgive unconditionally and let things go. He was a loving, kind, compassionate and gentle man who loved to take care of his family. He was the type of Dad who on his day off would pile his children, nieces and nephews into the station wagon and off we would go for a day of FUN! In the summertime, he loved to wake us up when he came home from work, around 1 AM, to go swimming, cook cheeseburgers on the grill and eat cold, sliced watermelon. We again ask for your prayers as we begin another grieving process, this time for our Dad, because it is so difficult. Dennis has joined his wife of 49 years, but is survived by his three children, Lisa Wong of Dartmouth, Jade Wong and her spouse Jessica Oliver of New Bedford, and Dennis Wong of New York; his grandchildren, Joseph and Grace; his sisters, May Moy and her husband Phillip, Debbie Holt, and Sue Van Wiggeren; and his sister-in-law, Margaret (Foley) Wong. He was the brother of the late Stephen Wong, Claudia Wong, Meline Loo and Louie Wong. His Funeral Service was held on Saturday in the Saunders-Dwyer Home for Funerals, 495 Park St., New Bedford. Burial was private. Visiting hours were held on Friday. For guestbook, please visit www.saundersdwyer.com.
