She was involved in many town projects, but the Police Department, of
which she was the co-commissioner, was her pride and joy. She truly
enjoyed each moment of service.
Halys was happiest while her
husband, children, and grandchildren were around her. You wouldn't have
to be around her very long before you learned of her love for her family
and of how proud she was of each one.
Halys was a loving,
generous, and caring person. Within moments of meeting her, she would
know all about you, your family, your job, etc., and you were happy to
share with her because you knew that she truly cared about you. She had
many wonderful friends who were very supportive of her through the years
and she felt very fortunate to have their friendship.
