SONYA A. BARCLAY OLD TOWN – Sonya A. Barclay, 35, passed Aug. 27, 2008, after a long, courageous battle with breast cancer. She was born Nov. 20, 1972, in Bangor, the daughter of Richard and Rita (Wood) Grenier. A lifelong resident of Old Town, she graduated from Old Town High School, Class of 1991 and Beal College in 1993. After graduating from college Sonya went on to work in retail sales for several years until she became a mother in 1997. Upon becoming a mother, she devoted her life to her children, working part time in several positions. Her family’s happiness was always her top priority. In 2004 she was diagnosed with stage IV breast cancer. Despite her failing health and continuous aggressive cancer treatments, her strong will allowed her to maintain a constant ritual of caring for her family in every way. In addition to caring for her family, she was ready and willing to help her family and friends within the community. This became evident when her friends and the community came together to help grant her dying wish – to make sure her family was safe. In May 2008, volunteers from the area and across the state combined with contractors and material providers to miraculously construct a much-needed new home within a two-week time frame. The home stands as a testament to her devotion to family and her love for her children. In addition to her parents of Old Town, she is survived by her husband, Jeff; her beloved children, Logan Marie Leonard, Derek Jeffrey, Madyson Jeanne and Mackenzie Jade, all of Old Town; stepson, Joshua Wayne Barclay of Bangor; four sisters, Marie Caliandro and her husband, Tim, of Greenbush, Tina Anderson of Alton, Cindy Fournier and her husband, Joseph, of Old Town and Paula Grenier of Milford; two brothers, Paul Grenier of Old Town, and Rick Grenier and his wife, Janet, of Derby, Kan.; brother-in-law, Scott Hesseltine of Milford; special nieces and nephews, Lorrin and Josh Hesseltine, Amanda, Natasha and Ryan Grenier. She was predeceased by her grandparents, Paul and Amanda Grenier and Walter and Dianne Wood; and special aunts, Jeanne Stuart and Bertha Randall. She will be fondly remembered by her many friends, extended family and all who were touched by her life. Funeral services will be held 3 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 31, at United Methodist Church of Old Town, 744 Stillwater Ave., with the Rev. Joan DeSanctis and the Rev. Robert T. Carlson officiating. After the services, a gathering for family and friends with refreshments will be held at the Black Bear Inn, 4 Godfrey Drive, Orono. Friends may call 2-8 p.m. Saturday at Birmingham Funeral Home, 438 Main St., Old Town. Donations in her memory may be made to the Barclay Family Fund, Penobscot County Federal Credit Union, 205 Main St., Old Town, ME 04468.
