BENNINGTON -- Georgianna Louise Freely, 88, a resident of Elm St., died Wednesday, Dec. 12, 2006, at the Southwestern Vermont Medical Center in Bennington, following a brief illness.

She was born in Brooklyn, N.Y., on July 23, 1918. She was the daughter of the late Henry and Cecelia (Hawkins) Walles. She received her education in Brooklyn.

Georgianna married Henry Freely on July 28, 1937, at St. Thomas Aquinas Church in Brooklyn. Henry Freely died in 1975.

In earlier years, Georgianna was employed at the Eisemann Corporation in Brooklyn, and in 1964, after moving to Vermont, the Freelys established Freely Floor Covering in Shaftsbury, which they operated until 1973 when their son Stephen took over the business.

Survivors include two sons, Stephen Freely of Pownal and Richard Freely of Calgary; four grandchildren; a sister, Gloria Hennessey of N.J.; and many nieces, nephews and cousins. She was pre-deceased by a grandson, Shane Freely, and a daughter-in-law, Thomasina Freely.

At the request of Mrs. Freely, there will be no calling hours or funeral service.

The burial will take place in the family lot in Center Shaftsbury Cemetery, at the convenience of the family.

If friends desire to make contributions in memory of Georgianna Freely, they may be made to the Activities Fund at the Vermont Veterans Home through the office of the Mahar and Son Funeral Home, 628 Main Street, Bennington, VT 05201.
