Shirley R. Hotaling, 85, of Gorton Road, Hamilton, NY, passed away on June 29, 2023, at the Crouse Community Center, Morrisville, NY. She was born on December 17, 1937, in North Norwich, a daughter of the late Carl and Helen (Tracy) Richardson. She received her education in the Sherburne School District and graduated in 1955 as Secretary of her class. On August 10, 1957, Shirley married Edward Hotaling. During their marriage, they were the number one Arctic Cat Snowmobile dealership in the state. Later in life, she began driving school bus for the Sherburne-Earlville School District where she met the love of her life, Harry “Pete” Nice. She enjoyed traveling, eating out and riding motorcycle with Pete for 32 years. He predeceased her in 2010. Shirley was also employed by Proctor and Gamble, where she worked on the assembly line. In her final years, she enjoyed the company of Charles Gorton and phone conversations with Ronald Peck. She was a great musician and spent many nights playing organ at Hands Inn in Norwich and the Sherburne Inn where you could hear her amazing rendition of Bill Bailey. She loved singing and playing the piano and organ and having fun. As her high school yearbook states “Here is another fun-loving lass, she’d rank high in any class.” https://www.burgessandtedescofuneralhomes.com/obituaries/shirley-hotaling
