Barbara Ann Marie Hanley Housmann, 78

B arbara Ann Marie Hanley Housman, age 78, passed away peacefully at her home surrounded by her loving family on Monday, Oct. 11, 2010.

She was born on Oct. 31, 1931, in Manhattan, daughter of Edward J. and Catherine (Kelly) Hanley.

She and her husband, Nelson J. Housman, were united in marriage on April 24, 1954, at St. Mary’s Roman Catholic Church in Granville. She has remained a faithful and dedicated Catholic.

After years of work in several offices, Barbara became a finishing operator at Sherwood Medical in Argyle, where she made some of her closest friendships. She retired in 1994 after 18 years of service.

Barbara was a delight and lived life to its fullest, enjoying life’s trip as she filled it with smiles and humor. Most precious to her was her family. She enjoyed ballgames and cheered on the Yankees. She also loved summer parties at camp with the company of family and friends.

Besides her parents, she was predeceased by her sister-in-law; Shirley Hanley, and brother-in-law, Willard Folger, and her niece, Holly Thomas.

Survivors include the love of her life, Nelson of Granville; her daughters, Kathleen McGraw and her husband, David, of Granville and Lynn Ann Powers of Martinez, Calif. Maudie, as she is affectionately known, is survived by her granddaughters, Shannon Talmadge and her husband, Scott, of Argyle, Kelly Brophy and her husband, Thomas, of Gansevoort, Kate Powers and Meg Powers of Martinez, Calif.; and great-grandchildren Ava, Griffin and Eamon Brophy. She is also survived by her three sisters, Murial Bozarth of Kelso, Wash., Dorothy Pickett of Norfolk, Va., and Gertrude Gomez of Pembroke Pines, Fla.; her sister-in-law, Helen Folger and her husband, George, of Granville; and several nieces, nephews and cousins.

Services will be conducted on Saturday, Oct. 23, at 11 a.m. at the Robert M. King Funeral Home, 23 Church St., Granville, with the Rev. Thomas Zelker presiding. Burial will follow in Mountainview Cemetery, West Pawlet, Vt.

Friends may call on the family from 9 to 11 a.m. on Saturday, Oct. 23, at the funeral home with the services to follow immediately.

The family requests that contributions to honor her memory be made to the Washington County Hospice, 415 Lower Main St., Hudson Falls, N.Y. 12839.
