Edith Sharon Hanley

Surrounded by her family, the passing of Edith Sharon (Matheson) Hanley, wife of James Hanley of L’Etang NB occurred at the Charlotte County Hospital, St. Stephen NB on August 31, 2023. Born in Blacks Harbour NB on August 14, 1947, she was the daughter of the late Frederick and Joyce Matheson.

A loving mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and sister, Edith is survived by her husband and her children, Wendy Allen (Dan) of L’Etang NB, Trena Hanley (Mark) of Grand Bay NB, Cory Hanley (April) of Milton ON, Timmy Hanley (Angela) of Belleisle NB and Crista Green (Kyle) of Mascarene NB; 14 grandchildren, 25 great-grandchildren; brother, Rev. Wayne Matheson (Iris) of St. George NB; sister, Linda Holmes of Chilliwack BC; sisters-in-law; brothers-in-law; her faithful and loving companion, Bentley; and many nieces, nephews and cousins.

In addition to her parents, Edith was predeceased by one grandchild, Melanie Rose Hanley; brother: Jack Matheson; brother-in-law, Gary Holmes; and by one brother and sister in infancy.

Prior to retirement, Edith worked for Connors Brothers in Blacks Harbour NB and for several restaurants in Saint John NB. She was a member of Granite Chapter # 15 OES and the Royal Canadian Legion #40 in St. George and was also a member of the Granite Town Seniors. She had a love for animals, especially all her dogs. Her greatest love was her family. She enjoyed all family get togethers where she could spoil all her grandchildren and great-grandchildren with ice cream. She will be greatly missed by her family and all who knew her.

A special thank you to granddaughter, Vanessa Hanley for the love and care she provided to her Nan.
