Shirley Haines Poladian 1928 - 2019
It is with great sadness that the family of Shirley Haines Poladian would like to announce her passing on December 22nd, 2019. Shirley Haines Poladian was born in Tannersville NY on May 22nd, 1928 and was a lifelong mountaintop resident.
She attended and proudly graduated from Hunter-Tannersville Central School, worked at The NY Telephone Company, and was a long-time member of the Greene County Ladies Auxiliary. She was a loving wife, mother, grandmother and recent great-grandmother. Among her favorite things was spending time with all her family, longtime family friends Charlie and Jean Blaney and Wanda Powell. She also enjoyed cooking, making holidays and any special occasion memorable. Reading, teaching and helping all the kids with schoolwork, and watching her beloved Yankees.
Shirley will be lovingly missed by her children Harry Jr. (Lara), Mary Susan Timpson, Andrew (Charlotte), grandchildren Felicia (Justin) Poskus, Jessica (Jonathan) Wengler, Sarah Timpson, Saleema, Raeghan, and Sawyer (Bean), and two great-grandchildren Hudson and Ciel.

There will be a viewing on Friday, December 27th with calling hours from 5-8 pm, and a service on Saturday, December 28th at 11 am, followed by burial at Evergreen Cemetery. Both services will be held at Aston-Basagic Funeral Home in Hunter NY. The family asks at Shirley’s request that in lieu of flowers memorial donations be made to the Mountaintop Public Library or the Tannersville Rescue squad.
