CASPER - Funeral services for Midwest resident Glenda Gale (Bingham) Sullivan, 50, will be conducted at 10 a.m. Friday, Aug. 27, at Highland Park Community Church by Pastor Cleates Jeffcoat of Glenrock Assembly of God Church. Interment will be in Glenrock Cemetery.
She died Aug. 24, 2004, at Central Wyoming Hospice Home, after a heroic, three-year battle with cancer.
Born Dec. 25, 1953, in Casper, she was the daughter of Arden B. and Lanay L. (Lawton) Bingham; and was raised and educated in Linch, Moorcroft, Midwest and Casper.
On July 9, 1975, she married her high-school crush, Patrick G. Sullivan, at College Heights Baptist Church in Casper, after his return from Vietnam.
They made their home in Casper and, later, in Midwest. She conducted a home childcare business for 17 years; was involved in community affairs, Girl Scouts and 4-H; and was a lifetime member of the Veterans of Foreign Wars Auxiliary.
A committed Christian, she was known for her unwavering faith and trust throughout her illness. As long as her health allowed, she was a special aide for Natrona County School District for the last three years.
Her interests included crocheting, decorating cakes, interior decorating and home flower-arranging, refinishing any type of old furniture, hunting, boating, spending time with her granddaughters at the family cabin at Keyhole State Park, and appreciating the joys in her life. Others always came first and she was always willing to lend a helping hand.
Survivors include her husband of 29 years of Midwest; daughter, Billie Sullivan, son, Jason and his wife, and two granddaughters, all of Casper; mother and stepfather, Lanay and Dossie Shippert of Glenrock; two brothers and their wives, Arden D. and Leo Bingham, and sister, Audrey Langley and her husband, all of Gillette; father-in-law; two brothers-in-law; grandmother, Edna Lawton, stepsister, Marilyn Anderson, and stepbrother, Bruce Shippert, all of Casper; numerous aunts, uncles and cousins; and lifetime friends, Donna LeClair, and her husband of Casper.
She was preceded in death by her father in 1996; mother-in-law in 2000; grandmother, Betty Giebler; stepgrandfather, Leo Giebler; and grandparents, Wayne and Josephine Bingham and Chester Lawton.
In lieu of flowers, the family would appreciate memorials to Central Wyoming Hospice Program, 319 S. Wilson, Casper, WY 82601; or Glenrock Assembly of God, 201 N. Third St., Glenrock, WY 82637.
