Glenice I. Marsala


Glenice I. (Dasenburg) Marsala, 94, of Middletown, previously from Chester, Va., entered into eternal rest on Wednesday, September 3, 2019 at Frey Village, surrounded by her loving family. She was born in Archbald, Pa. on September 2, 1925 and was the daughter of the late Henry and Julia (Wagner) Dasenburg.

She graduated from Archbald High School, attended Scranton Lackawana Business College, and went on to work for the U.S. Textile Company, Scranton, Pa. Glenice was a member of the Middletown Presbyterian Church where she was active in her younger years. She also loved to volunteer at Frey Village for many years, even prior to her residency, and loved her many friends there. Glenice will always be remembered for her feisty spirit and quick-witted nature. She also volunteered for the Middletown Meals-On-Wheels Program. In addition, Glenice volunteered for 17 years at the Lucy Corr Nursing Home’s Activities Department in Chesterfield County, Va. while living in Chester, Va. While she enjoyed crocheting, shopping, walking, and reading, her greatest joy was her family.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her beloved husband, Michael Marsala, six sisters, Kathryn Gibbon, Jeannette Nies, Bertha Dasenburg, Muriel DiCindio, Ruth Dasenburg and Juel Niland; and two brothers, Harold Dasenburg and Herbert Dasenburg, and sister-in-law, Clara Dasenburg.

Glenice is survived by her seven nieces; 14 great-nephews and nieces; and numerous great-great- nephews and nieces. “Aunt Sister,” as her family called her, will be sorely missed. She loved her family and they all loved her dearly.

A tribute to her life will be held at 10 a.m. on Friday, September 13, 2019 in the Chapel at Frey Village, 1020 North Union Street, Middletown, Pa., with Chaplin Wayne Muthler officiating. There will be a visitation from 9 a.m. until the time of the service.

Burial will be held at Indiantown Gap Memorial Cemetery.

In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be sent in memory of her husband to Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, 101 Erford Rd., Suite 201, Camp Hill, PA 17011.

Matinchek Funeral Home & Cremation Services, Inc., 260 East Main Street, Middletown, Pa. has been entrusted to handle the arrangements.
