SHAFTSBURY -- Lee Winey, 83, widow of Harold E. Winey, a former resident of Meyers Road, Shaftsbury, died Wednesday, Oct. 25, 2006, at the Centers for Living and Rehabilitation in Bennington following a brief illness.

Born in St. Louis, May 12, 1923, she was the daughter of the late Leon and Margaret (Oswald) Adler. She received her education at the Monticello Boarding School and was a graduate of the Julliard School of Music in New York City.

Prior to moving to Shaftsbury in 1983, Lee resided in Mill Valley, Calif., for 30 years, where she was employed as an administrator at the University of California at San Francisco School of Dentistry. She was also a past president and longtime member of the Marin County Mental Health Association and was actively involved in the Mill Valley School District PTA for many years.

She was a loving mother and a very dear friend, who was a strong advocate of world peace, ethics and healthcare. She was a pianist, an artist, and an active community member, with particular involvement during the 1980s and 1990s in the local arm of the national organization, Beyond War.

Survivors include two daughters, Lisa Winey Digrandi and Shawn Kershaw Wicks, both of London, England; a son, Tony Kershaw of Berkeley, Calif.; three grandchildren, Tom Besford, Matteo Digrandi and Luca Digrandi, all of London; and extended family.

At Mrs. Winey’s request, no funeral services will be held. Instead, her children invite friends and family across the globe to honor her with a moment of silence anytime during the day on Sunday, Oct. 29. Burial will take place at Oak Grove Cemetery in Normandy, Missouri.

Should friends desire, contributions in Mrs. Lee Winey’s memory may be made to Southwestern Vermont Regional Cancer Center through the office of the Mahar & Son Funeral Home, 628 Main St., Bennington, VT 05201.
