Muriel Hartney Delaney

Muriel Hartney Delaney, 88, passed away on Friday, July 27, after a brief illness. She had a magical childhood growing up on Lake Champlain. Her early family life was rooted in upstate NY and Montreal where grandparents, aunts, and uncles surrounded her with Scottish and Irish family traditions. Muriel trained as an RN at Champlain Valley Hospital where she met her life-long friend, Nancy Ann, and she continued her training at Johns Hopkins in the early 1950’s. Returning to Rouses Point, NY, she met Donald W. Delaney and married him shortly after. They remained married for 58 years until her husband’s death in 2014. Muriel made a loving home for her four children and she will be missed by all.  Muriel’s kindness, generosity, love, and concern for others touched everyone she met, making life a bit better for all. She was predeceased by her parents, Michael and Inez Hartney, of Rouses Point, NY; her beloved husband, Donald W. Delaney, M.D.; and an infant son, Michael. Left to cherish her memory are her four children Mary Kay Delaney and husband Fritz Mayer; Maureen Delaney; Donald Delaney and wife Ruth; and Martha Delaney and husband David Cummings; and grandsons, Paul Delaney Mayer and wife Kate St. Romain, Michael Delaney Mayer, and David Delaney Mayer; and cousins.

Friends may call on Tuesday, July 31 from 6pm until 8pm at the Church of the Little Flower, 5607 Massachusetts Ave, Bethesda, MD where Mass of Christian burial will be offered on Wednesday, August 1 at 12 Noon.  Interment at Arlington National Cemetery at a later date.  In lieu of flowers, please make contributions to Childrens Hospital National Medical Center in D.C.
