OBIT-WilleyMILBRIDGE and SOUTH DAYTONA, FLA. — Ethelyn E. Willey, 72, of Milbridge and South Daytona, Fla., born June 28, 1943.

Daughter of the late Harvard and Bertha “Norwood” Phinney passed away Nov. 22, 2015, at her home in Florida, surrounded by her two boys, Basil “Shawn” Seeley and Kevin Gill.

She was predeceased by her husband, Douglas Willey; her sisters Margaret Beal, Dorothy Peabody, Sylvia Brooks, Sophie Torrey, Celia Kennedy; and her brothers John Phinney, Alvin Phinney and Harvard Phinney Jr.

She is survived by her sons Basil “Shawn” Seeley and Kevin Gill; her nieces Tracy Beal, Marie Smith and nephew Evans Beal, all of whom she considered to be her children as well as many other nieces, nephews and cousins she loved.

She will be greatly missed by all.

She loved bingo, cooking, gardening and of course all her pets.

The family requests that everyone plant a rosebush somewhere in her honor instead of sending flowers. Services will be held in Maine at a later date.
