Obituary Condolences

BENNINGTON -- Ana Funes, 74, a resident of BenMont Avenue, died on Monday morning, Jan. 5, 2004 at her home.

Ms. Funes was born on Sept. 2, 1929 in San Salvador, El Salvador, and came to the United States in 1952. Following her arrival in the U.S., Ms. Funes worked for families in homes in the New York and Connecticut area.

Following her retirement to Bennington four years ago, Ms. Funes became a member of the Shaftsbury United Methodist Church. She was a very quiet, reserved and unassuming person, well known for her kind, caring and giving spirit. Ms. Funes enjoyed reading, especially history, geography, traveling, needlepoint and cooking. She had a vast knowledge of birds which she frequently shared with her friends.

Ms. Funes is survived by a nephew, Israel Dimas of Bennington; a niece, Lourdes Dimas of Montreal, Canada, and cousin, Carlota Garcia, and her family residing in Virginia.

A service to remember and honor the life of Ms. Funes will be held on Friday, Jan. 9, 2004 at 11 a.m. at the Shaftsbury United Methodist Church in Shaftsbury. Friends are invited to join Ms. Funes’ family following the service in the Michael Paulin Room at the Church for a time of fellowship and refreshment.

Gifts in Ms. Funes’ memory may be made to the American Cancer Society, VT Division in care of the Hanson-Walbridge Funeral Home, P.O. Box 957, Bennington, VT 05201.
