Gladys ‘Bobbie’ Wynn Selverstone, 100, died peacefully at her home in Damariscotta, on January 15, 2023, with her grandson, daughter, and cats by her side.
Bobbie was the youngest child born to Walter and Marie Wynn in Ayr, Scotland, on September 11, 1922. The family moved to the London area a few years later. During World War II, Bobbie served her country in the Women’s Auxiliary branch of the Royal Air Force.
After being invalided out of service, she worked in the office of a renowned dentist on Harley Street in London until her marriage to an American doctor, Norman J. Selverstone, in December 1951. Once married, she and Norman lived for two years in Germany before coming to the US and settling in the Boston area, where Norman established his medical practice.
Parts of every summer were spent on the coast of Maine, and when Norman retired in 2009, they made Damariscotta their year-round home.
Bobbie was predeceased by Norman; her siblings, Lilian, Jenny, Violet, Marion, and Leslie; and her youngest son, Roger.
She is survived by her eldest son, Andrew of Pinecliffe, CO; her daughter, Jane and son-in law David Gutzler of Los Ranchos, NM; her grandson, Ben Gutzler of Dover NH; her granddaughter, Sonia Gutzler of Albuquerque, NM; and by far-flung but much-beloved nephews, nieces, and other members of the extended family around the former British Empire and the U.S.
Arrangements are under the direction and care of the Strong-Hancock Funeral Home, 612 Main Street, Damariscotta, ME 04543. Condolences, and messages for her family, may be expressed by visiting: www.StrongHancock.com.
