Bellinger, Shirley  
Shirley Manz Bellinger of Howes Cave, NY and Palmetto, FL died on August 21, 2015, after a brief illness surrounded by her family at her home. Born on January 25, 1937, she was the daughter of Ella Mae (Mather) and Harry W. Manz of Schoharie, NY. Shirley was raised in Schoharie, graduating from Schoharie Central School in 1954. She then attended Hartwick College, on a scholarship, graduating from its Baccalaureate Nursing Program in 1958. At Hartwick, she met 13 other nursing students all who became lifelong friends. While completing her degree, she married Duncan M. Bellinger on February 1, 1958. After graduating she established a home with Duncan on the Bellinger farm, later renamed Dairyland Sales & Service, on Junction Road, where she spent the rest of her life. Shirley and her husband chose to raise their family on the farm, where they also raised Purebred brown Swiss Cattle, market hogs and 500 acres of feed grains. Their Brown Swiss included many state and national champions and their field crops received many production awards. Shirley's community activities have included involvement in Catskill Area Hospice, Schoharie Co. Historical Society, Cornell Cooperative Extension, 4-H Leader, and Schoharie Co. Farm Bureau. She was also a member of the Schoharie United Presbyterian Church, where she served as elder, deacon, financial secretary and treasurer. Shirley took great pleasure in being a host mother to many foreign exchange students, 19 at last count, from around the world; many of whom still call her "Mom" and visit whenever possible. Shirley enjoyed travel, and many of her travels included visiting some of her former exchange students. One of her favorite trips was a guided tour of the Holy Land. This trip greatly impacted her faith and her understanding of the Bible. Later in life, Shirley and Duncan enjoyed traveling in their motor home throughout the US, Canada and Mexico. They made many friends in their travels. But, Shirley's greatest joy was music, which she shared with her children, church and community. She would often listen to choral and orchestral masterworks on the family's console stereo, which became the backdrop for evening meals. While at Hartwick, Shirley played oboe in the college's symphonic band. One of her proudest musical accomplishments was playing with the symphonic band which was invited to play for the Music Educators National Conference (MENC) All-Eastern conference. Shirley was a charter member of the Depot Lane Singers and sang with the group for 25 years. It was later in life that she discovered her passion and enthusiasm for hand bells. She played in the church's bell choir and eventually became the director, directing several choirs and presenting several concerts and programs. She was also a member and ringer of the Zion Community Ringers in Cobleskill for many years as well as ringing for two churches at her winter residence in Florida. Shirley is survived by her devoted husband of 57 years, Duncan M. Bellinger; her brother, Lynn (Midge) Manz of Orange City, FL; daughters, Ginny (Mark) Collins of Quaker Street and SaraJane (Todd) Cipperly of Central Bridge; grandchildren, Paul Collins, Kathryn Cipperly, Alexander Cipperly and Bridget Cipperly; as well as a niece, Katrina (Jeff) Dental of Auburndale, FL; and nephew, David (Cora) Manz of Monteverde, FL. She was predeceased by her son, Martin E. Bellinger. A celebration of Shirley's life is planned for Saturday, September 19th at 10:30 a.m. at the Schoharie United Presbyterian Church for friends, family and community. In lieu of flowers, Shirley requested memorial gifts for the Schoharie Presbyterian Church Handbell Program (c/o SUPC, PO Box 340, Schoharie, NY 12157) or the Martin E Bellinger FFA Leadership Scholarship (c/o NBT Bank, Schoharie, NY 12157). Arrangements have been entrusted to Mereness-Putnam Funeral Home, 171 Elm St., Cobleskill and Palmer & Shaylor Funeral Home of Middleburgh.

Bissell, Margaret Jean  
Margaret Jean Robe Bissell was born November 14, 1930 in Frazeysburg, Ohio and entered into eternal life on August 25, 2015 in Glendale Nursing Home in Scotia, New York. Her mother and father were teachers in Ohio schools and her father was a Superintendent of Schools. Margaret was the oldest of six children and was predeceased by her sister, Llewellyn; and is survived by her four brothers, Thurlow Richard Robe, Edward Scott Robe, Robert Quincy Robe and Nathan Webster Robe. She lived in many places in Ohio and went to high school in Athens, Ohio and college at Ohio University in Athens. She graduated in 1952 and was intending to be a high school science teacher until she attended a mission's conference for the Student Volunteer Movement in Urbana, Illinois and felt called to go to India/Pakistan as a three year missionary teacher for the Methodist Church. She found out there were five other "Margarets" on the staff and switched to her middle name Jean. She taught in Kinnaird College for Women in Lahore, Pakistan for four years. She was active with the students in the Student Christian Association, taught the Bible to Christian and Muslim students and assisted in the Chemistry laboratory. She traveled all over India and climbed in the foothills of the Himalaya Mountains. In 1956 she returned to the United States to study for a Master of Divinity degree at Yale Divinity School to be a Methodist campus minister. She was a Methodist Campus Minister, first in Ypsilanti, Michigan and then in Ann Arbor, Michigan, at the University of Michigan. In 1964 Jean met her husband, Torre Bissell, a student at the University of Michigan, who had just returned from two years teaching at the Holy Cross Mission in up-country Liberia for the Episcopal Church. They were engaged six weeks after they met and married just six weeks later on May 21, 1964. Torre and Jean were married for 51 years, till Jean passed away. In 1966 they went out as Episcopal missionaries with their infant son, Brereton, to Eastern Nigeria. They got there just in time for the Nigerian Civil War. Jean and Brereton were evacuated out of rebel territory in early June of 1966 and Torre left Biafra two months later and was transferred to Liberia, where they spent the next nine years. They taught on the coast in Robertsport, Liberia for four years and at Cuttington College in the interior of Liberia for five years. Jean taught both at the College and at the Gbarnga School of Theology, which trained men to become village pastors. She taught the students at Gbarnga everything she knew about the Bible and the Holy Spirit. Starting from Genesis, she got as far as Corinthians before she became too large to fit behind the steering wheel of the car because of her pregnancy with the twins, Jonathan and Sarah, who were born in 1972. In between the birth of Brereton and the twins, they adopted their daughter, Hillary, in 1968 and son, Tamba, in 1971. Brereton and Hillary were born in Michigan, Tamba was born in Canada and Jonathan and Sarah in Liberia. The family returned to the United States in 1976 and settled in the Capital District. Torre and Jean taught the adults of Christ Church Episcopal in Schenectady and led the Sunday School for many years. Torre and Jean were on the Healing Team at Christ Church and the Diocesan Spiritual Life Center. Jean served on the Commission on Ministry for the Episcopal Diocese of Albany, and led a women's bible study for a number of years. Torre and Jean took Stephen Stewart, age 15, into their home in February 2005, and Arthur Fennicks, age 21, in May 2013. Jean and is survived by a large family, her seven children and their families; her husband, Torre, and his family; and her four brothers and their families. Jean was blessed by her children and family, and for that she was always thankful. The funeral service will be on Saturday, September 5th at 11 a.m.. Viewing will take place from 9 to 10:45 a.m., before the service in the side chapel. In lieu of flowers please make contributions to Christ Church Episcopal, 970 State St., Schenectady, NY 12307.
