Elizabeth Clarke O'Hanlon
East Berne NY
Elizabeth "Betty" Clarke O'Hanlon died peacefully on 10/10/15 at the Hospice Inn at St. Peter's Hospital after a long illness.
Born October 6, 1919, Betty was the oldest child of Thomas and Emma Clarke of Rensselaer. She graduated from Rensselaer High School in 1939. Betty married David M. O'Hanlon in 1943, on the eve of his deployment to Europe during WW II. She was a career employee at the NYS Department of Professional Licensing, concurrently operating O'Hanlon's Pine Grove on Warners Lake with Dave. An avid reader, Betty took college courses that peaked her interest, and after retirement explored and enjoyed her many artistic talents: oil painting, furniture refinishing, chair caning, and crocheting. She and Dave enjoyed many happy years with friends in East Berne NY and Homosassa FL.
Betty is survived by her daughters Mary and Patricia O'Hanlon ( Roy Lamberton), sister, Mary (Clarke) Ciprioni, daughter-in-law Linda O'Hanlon, grandchildren Colin (Colleen) and Ryan O'Hanlon, Laura Lamberton (Ryan Dunham), Peter Lamberton, and 7 great grandchildren, Kennan, Shae and Brogan O'Hanlon, Brianne Borter, Caelan, Reilly and Ainsley Lamberton Dunham. She was pre-deceased by her husband David, son Michael, and brother Thomas Clarke.
The family wishes to thank the staff at the Hospice Inn and especially the staff on 3A in Teresian House who took such good care of her.
