Hope Gaile McMullen

April 6, 1939 – July 27, 2020

Hope was born and raised in Milford, Maine and graduated from Old Town High School.

At the age of 23, Hope married Jimmy and traveled with him as his work took them all over the country. After Jimmy’s death, Hope moved to Florida; and at the age of 55, she went to back to school to become a Pharmacy Tech. It’s never too late!

Hope loved going on cruises; and since she lived a few miles from Port Canaveral, she got a lot of last minute deals.

When she had enough of hurricanes, she moved to Arizona at the age of 75.

On her first Saturday (10 o’clock, never 10:01) in Arizona, Hope saw her first Drag Queen; and she soon became a big fan of Drag Shows and Pageants, and made many friends.

Hope was also a collector….of shoes and purses (Gloria is still counting them!)

Hope was preceded by her husband Jimmy McMullen, her mother Myrtle Sherman, and her brothers Tom and Charlie.

She is survived by her sister Gloria, her brother Toby, many nieces and nephews, and her extended Gay-dopted family.

Did I mention that Hope enjoyed a Margarita (or 2), a Whiskey-Water (or 2), and of course her Guinness?

Hope was loved by many and will be dearly missed by all!

In lieu of flowers, please give to the charity of your choice.

I will miss spending time with you, little trips we took and calling you on the phone when you answer you’d say “Hey Darlin” with your distinctive accent. You earned your wings my beautiful Angel.
