Evelyn (Scism) McGuire, 93, passed away on Monday, Feb. 26, 2007 at the Alterra Apartments in Niskayuna following a long illness.
Born on Dec. 6, 1913 in Whitehall, she was the daughter of the late Harvey and Evelyn (Vadney) Scism.
Mrs. McGuire graduated from Whitehall High School and S.U.N.Y at Potsdam with a degree in music education.  She was an accomplished violinist and played the piano and other instruments.
She taught music appreciation at the Putnam School District and later at Freeport School in Long Island, where she directed the chorus along with her many other duties as a teacher.
 She married Thomas McGuire and they resided in Scranton, Pa., for many years.
 In Scranton, she was a volunteer at the local hospital and received several awards for her long and devoted service to her community. Mrs. McGuire was an outstanding artist who had her own one-person show in Scranton. She did many oil paintings, including portraits and landscapes.
 Besides her parents and husband, she is predeceased by one brother, Ormond Scism, one sister, Vera (Scism) Terry, her nephew, Russell Terry and his son, Stephen Terry.
She is survived by several nieces and nephews.
Mrs. McGuire instructed her niece, Susan (Terry) Yelle, who attended her through her many years of illness, that her services were to be private and at the convenience of the family.  Interment will be in the spring at Our Lady of Angels Cemetery in Whitehall.
The family has suggested that contribution’s may be made in her name to a charity of one’s choice.
Arrangements are under the direction of the Jillson Funeral Home, Inc., 46 Williams Street, Whitehall, NY.
