Victoria McInerney

1945 - 2014 RUPERT Victoria de Fere McInerney, a native of Bay Shore, N.Y., and a resident of Rupert, died Jan. 18, 2014, at the age of 68 after courageously battling a lung disease for 13 years. She died peacefully and gracefully with her husband at her side. Born Dec. 27, 1945, she was named Suzanne de Fere, but her father reflecting on the Allies victory in World War II changed her name to Victoria. She graduated from Rosemary Hall and then Pine Manor College. She was a direct descendant of Rev. John Yongs, the first settler and founder of the town of Southold, N.Y., and of John Proctor, hung as a witch during the Salem, Mass., witch trials. She was a lover of all forms of nature, flora and fauna, especially birds; a keen observer of the minutest details of her surroundings, her knowledge was close to encyclopedic. Her interests were eclectic; her ethics and loyalty unmatched; her humor was multi-faceted. She was the family advisor in many things encompassing finance, etiquette, taste and interpersonal relations. A guiding principal was to analyze, understand, and never to judge. She was chair of the finance committee at Merck Forest and Farmland Center. She is survived by her husband, John, of almost 48 years; their twin sons, John Appleton Haven and Paul Proctor Young; her sister, Paulette Van Vranken and niece, Karen Maloney. She was predeceased by her oldest sister, Joscelyn Hill. She would appreciate contributions to the Vermont Chapter of the Nature Conservancy in care of BREWSTER-SHEA FUNERAL HOME, P.O. Box 885, Manchester Center, VT 05255. To send the family condolences, visit www.sheafuneralhomes.com.
