Shirley I. Hanley, 88

 

Shirley I. Hanley of West Pawlet, Vt., entered into peaceful rest at the home of her niece on Wednesday, Feb. 20, 2008 following a short illness.

 

Shirley was born on June 29, 1919 in Wells, Vt., the daughter of Harry and Edith (Brown) Statia.
In support of the war effort, she moved to Connecticut and worked as a skilled tool maker. When she returned to the area, Shirley became a certified nutritionist. She worked in that capacity for the Pawlet School District, Granville Head Start and the Castleton lunch program. As her career wound down, she had worked most recently for the Vermont Office of the Aging Meals on Wheels program. Following her retirement, she enjoyed working at Mana’s Antique’s, a shop in Granville owned by her niece.
She is predeceased by two husbands: Noble Allen (1967) and Edward J. Hanley (1981), a son Noble Allen Jr. and a brother Willard Folger. Survivors are her son James Allen and his wife, Nancy, of Fairfax, Va., a daughter, Hazel Raigue, and her husband, Alfred, of Jupiter, Fla., a brother, Nelson Housman, and his wife, Barbara, of Granville, and a sister, Helen Folger, and her husband, George, also of Granville.  Also surviving are five grandchildren and two great-grandchildren.
At her request, there will be no calling hours. A memorial service will be held at a later date. She will be buried in Connecticut with her husband, Noble Allen.
Memorial contributions may be made to Sjögren’s Syndrome Foundation, 6707 Democracy Boulevard, Suite 325, Bethesda, MD 20817 or Friends of Hospice, 415 Lower Main St. Hudson Falls, NY 12839.
Arrangements are under the direction of the Robert M. King Funeral Home, 23 Church St. Granville, NY.
