Gloria I. Alley
Concord, NH--------Gloria I. Alley, 71, of 111 Pleasant St., Concord and formerly of Sanbornton and Laconia died at the Concord Hospital in Concord, NH on Wednesday, March 21, 2001.
Mrs. Alley was born August 13, 1929 in Medford, MA, the daughter of Clyde W. and Ethel Grace (Hopkins) Isnor. She spent her childhood in Medford, MA, and was the only member of her immediate family not born in Nova Scotia. She graduated 10th in her class of 700 from Medford High School in 1947, was Class Poet and was recipient of the English Award. She majored in English at Boston University, College of Liberal Arts, graduating in 1951. Her graduate work included courses in semantics, dramatics, creative writing and art. Following her marriage, she taught English for several years. She was a poet and was a teacher in the Laconia School System during the 1950's. She was the former wife of the late Robert Alley of Gilmanton, NH.
Philosophy and art were major interests of Mrs. Alley. Her first-hand knowledge of great works of art was augmented by a memorable European trip during which she and her husband roamed the continent for eight and a half months. She was tremendously indebted to the N.H. artist, Carl Drerup, for his help in expanding her love and knowledge of Renaissance art.
The intensely personal quality of Mrs. Alley's poetry first became evident in her choice of topics: friendships, family, nature, art, love, and death. She was strongly influenced by Sappho, Edna St. Vincent Millay, and W. B. Yeats (to each of whom she dedicated a poem). She had the true professional's sense of tight concepts and vivid symbolism.
Mrs. Alley spent several years at Writers' Conferences in Durham, N.H. when she started writing seriously.
Mrs. Alley taught creative writing to advanced 5th and 6th graders. She lived for many years in Sanbornton, NH during which time she was active in leading Great Books discussions. Mrs. Alley's lifetime hobby was the writing of poetry. She was a charter member of the N. H. Poetry Society and had served on the Board of Directors, as well as having been editor of its anthology. She was elected their Poet of the Year in 1973. She wrote a book of poetry "This Very Madness" which was published by the Golden Quill Press in 1977.
Mrs. Alley spent her later years as a resident of Laconia and Concord, NH, and was a member of the Unitarian Universalist Society in Laconia. She was an active member of her community and served on her local school board. She was a past member of the National Education Association and a past member of the Council of World Affairs. She as an avid traveller. Ill health did not deter her from working with the mentally challenged. Over the years, she also brought her love of art and literature to children, and later to prisoners. In 1989, during Mental Health Month, she presented a book of her poems to then-Governor Judd Gregg.
