January 7, 1954 - March 1, 2020
SHIRLEY : Christine M. Hanley, 66, of Shirley died Sunday, March 1, 2020 at home. Christine was born in Boston, January 7, 1954 a daughter of the late Henry P. and Lorraine (Walsh) Hanley. She leaves her sister, Maureen Quinty Mildram and her husband Doug Mildram of Boylston, her nephew, Patrick Quinty of York, ME and her niece, Allison Quinty of Miami, FL. Christine graduated from The University of Connecticut with a BS in Physical Therapy. She worked as a physical therapist in Braintree, MA before switching careers to computer science and later worked as a high school teacher. Chris worked tirelessly in all areas of the ProLife Movement. She cared deeply for the unborn and the women who were faced with difficult choices. She volunteered with women both at Visitation House in Worcester and by participating in the healing ministry, Project Rachel. Chris was the chairwoman of the Fitch-Leominster Chapter of Massachusetts Citizens for Life for many years and served on the Board from 2009-2012. Her heroic efforts in this role included education, contacting legislators, coordinating Rose Drives and attending the annual MCFL Respect Life Walk. Chris was a key player in opposing the Planned Parenthood's facility in Fitchburg which closed its doors in June of 2019. This was due in large part to Chris and her chapter's faithful work outside of the facility. Finally, Chris had a special place in her heart for the youth and held a table annually at the Leominster High School Health Fair. Chris had a profound faith in God and dedicated her life to the relentless pursuit of truth. She was a prolific reseacher and writer. She used her talents to disseminate information to all those working to protect life. She faced her own illness with the same intellectual rigor and courage that she gave to protection of all human life. Chris touched countless lives and she will be greatly missed. Her funeral Mass will be celebrated 11 AM Saturday, March 14, 2020 at St. Anthony’s Church, 14 Phoenix St., Shirley. Calling hours are from 9:30 – 10:30 AM Saturday March 14 at the Anderson Funeral Home, 25 Fitchburg Rd., (Rte 2A) Ayer. Burial will take place on Monday, March 16, at 11AM in the Milton Cemetery.
