In memory of
Alice E. (Whalen) Hanlon
Alice E. Hanlon Formerly of Staten Island Alice E. Hanlon (Whalen) of West Yarmouth, formerly of Harwich Port and Staten Island, N.Y., died peacefully surrounded by her children at Cape Cod Hospital on March 19th after a period of declining health. She was predeceased by her loving husband of 64 years, James (Jim) D. Hanlon. She is survived by their six children, Alice H. and her husband, Thomas E. Peisch, of Wellesley; Daniel J. and his wife, Annice Hanlon, of LaGrange, Ill.; Mary Ellen and her husband, Karl Jacob, of Sandwich; Eileen E. Hanlon of Chatham; James V. Hanlon of Plymouth; John C. and his wife, Sherry Costa Hanlon of Taunton. She is also survived by 12 devoted grandchildren and three great-grandsons, all of whom brought her much pride and joy, Philip, his wife Greta, Alice and Andrew Peisch; Patrick, Sarah and James Hanlon; Kaitlin Jacob Quine, her husband, Timothy, Lindsay, Kristin and Kyle Jacob; Christopher and Delano Costa Hanlon; John, Edward and Bryce Peisch. She also leaves her sister Mary Ford Kingsley (Gordon F.) of Wellesley and three nephews. Mrs. Hanlon was born in Boston on October 30, 1929, to James V. and Alice E. Whalen, and grew up in Roslindale. She was a proud graduate of the Girls Latin School and received a bachelor's degree from Newton College of the Sacred Heart. Prior to her marriage in 1953, she worked as a legal secretary for a patent law firm in Boston. She spent most of her adult life on Staten Island where she and Jim raised their family. She then embarked on a career on Wall Street, retiring as an administrative vice-president in the investment banking division of Lehman Brothers. In 1997, she and Jim retired to her family's summer home in Harwich Port and spent many wonderful years together hosting their children, grandchildren and assorted friends and relatives at the beach. She will be remembered by all who knew her for her elegance, wit and bright smile, and for the grace and dignity with which she handled the challenges that life presented. Due to current circumstances, a private funeral and burial will be held. A celebration of Mrs. Hanlon's life will take place when conditions permit. In lieu of flowers, please consider a contribution in her name to a charity of your choice. Notes of comfort may be made to her family at www.MorrisOConnorBlute.com Morris, O'Connor & Blute Funeral Home 678 Main Street Harwich, MA 02645 (508) 432-6696
