I miss this site for purposes of discussion. It seems the only place for exchanging dialogue is FB and that is just not good for in depth conversation.  FPF is another site that does not lend itself to discussion. I miss Henry.

Adrian (Andy) Irish Sr.

Starksboro/Bristol

                On Saturday, November 30, 2019 Adrian C. Irish Sr. loving husband, father and papa left earth for his reward in heaven.

                Andy was born on August 29th 1938 in St. Albans, Vermont to Robert and Bessie (Ryan) Irish. He was the first of four children. Brothers, Michael (Deceased), Brian, Dwight and sister Cindy. He grew up on a small farm in Fletcher, VT where he spent many an hour in a field watching the cows and reading, this is where Andy acquired much of his intelligence. He graduated BFA Fairfax and was the salutatorian in his senior class. He attended UVM College upon entering the Navy, which he served for 6 years and was a very proud veteran. Andy worked for the telephone company for many years, and then started a career with IBM in Essex, VT. He retired from there after 25 years.

                In 1987 he married the love of his life and his best friend Karen. He raised their five children, the oldest Robert Todd Wood, Melody Lois (Wood) Roell, Brett Scott Wood, Jason Clifford Wood, and Jarred Allen Wood. He loved and enjoyed their 14 grandchildren, and 4 great grandchildren. The grandchildren are Madison and Mason Wood, Kaleb Shepard, Saddie Roy, Kennady Roy and Bella Roell, Corey and Zachary Wood, Keana, Shayna and Matthew Wood, Xavier, Aiden and Connor Wood. His great grandchildren are Kylee and Sophee Shepard, Blake Nadeau and Charley Mouton.

                Andy was the most faithful fan for baseball games, basketball games, soccer games, and car racing. He followed rain or shine. He loved reading, gardening, fishing, and crazy adventures like spur of the moment tattoos in South Carolina with his wife Karen. They enjoyed life to the fullest, and they loved their hearts out. He loved and enjoyed his dog, Dash.

                He will be greatly missed by all who knew him, he was tired and ready. He had battled Parkinson’s disease for 4 years, ending in uncontrollable seizures which eventually took him.

Their children graduated form BFA.

St. Albans - Nancy (Lindkamp) Orcutt, 76, passed away with her loving husband by her side on Wednesday November 27, 2019 at home after a long illness. Nancy kept her sense of humor and mischievous side to the very end. She was born on March 19, 1943 to the late Paul and Frances (Fietz) Lindkamp in Oneida, New York.

Nancy had a passion for quilting and belonged to quilt guilds in both Franklin and Chittenden Counties. She and Bill traveled to many states for quilt shows, quilting classes, and sightseeing. Her most favorite group was the “Stitch and Bitch” group that met at the members’ homes. Members Dale McFeeters, Bonnie Evans, Denise Chase, Denise Quint, and Carol Stanley were very close friends. Nancy had a love of cats and always had at least one furry friend living with her. She enjoyed feeding and watching the many birds that would come to the feeder. Cardinals were her favorite but any bird that showed up was welcome. Professional Baseball was another passion and they made numerous trips to different ball parks to see games and also watched games at home on TV. Her favorite team was the Boston Red Sox and she was blessed to see them win the World Series four times. Saturday nights were spent with a group of friends going out to dinner then playing cards late into the evenings. She also adored riding her motorcycle during the summer and her snowmobile during the winter with Bill, sometimes having the children along as well.

Nancy is survived by her loving husband of 57 years William E Orcutt of St. Albans, a son William P Orcutt and wife Debra and their children Sonya and Jordan of South Burlington, a daughter Joanna Sartwell and husband Donnie and their children Jaydon and Maelyn of Georgia (VT), a daughter Tricia Langlois and husband John and their children Emily, Sarah and Daniel of Connecticut, a brother-in-law Bruce Orcutt and wife Renee and their children of Texas, a sister-in-law Darlene Hollingsworth and her significant other “Bud” Dunn and her family of New York, two great-grandchildren, and many close friends. Nancy is also predeceased by two half sisters, her father’s children by a previous marriage. It was a very important milestone in her life to finally meet them when she traveled to Florida in the early nineties. They enjoyed each others company and kept in touch with one another until their deaths.

A special thank you to Bayada Home Health for their outstanding compassion and care of Nancy during her long illness. We especially want to thank Carol, Bridget, and Mike for their exceptional kindness and attention to both Nancy and her family.

Visiting hours will be held on Saturday, December 7th from 1:00 – 4:00 p.m. at A W Rich Funeral Home – Fairfax Chapel with a funeral service starting at 6:00 p.m. with Chaplain Michael Ellis officiating. Inurnment will be private and at the convenience of the family. Memorial contributions in Nancy’s memory may be made to the Franklin County Humane Society, 30 Sunset Meadows, St. Albans, Vermont 05478. The family also invites you to share your memories and condolences by visiting www.awrfh.com.

Donna (Goodrich) Gaudette, 74, passed away on November 13, 2019 due to an unfortunate accident at her new home on October 19, 2019. Donna fought hard with her family at her side. Donna showed her strength and determination to her family before leaving their sides and joining her late husband Mr. Roy Gaudette Sr and son Ronald Allen Gaudette. Donna was born July 21, 1945 in Burlington, daughter of the late Arthur and Evelyn (Barns) Goodrich.

Donna also left behind dear friends, old and new. She had a way of visiting with people and made friends easily. People loved hearing her stories, especially how she provided vivid excitement through them. Donna also loved and lived her life for her family. She loved having everyone around to reminisce through both her stories and pictures.

Donna had a passion for plants, both indoor and outdoor. Her family always spoke of her amazing Green Thumb. She loved giving out gardening advice along with splices of her plants to start new ones from.

Donna had a great love for crafting of all kinds, including sewing blankets, pillows and other items, blessing her family with her gifts. She made several blankets for family throughout the years, her latest being for the newest great-granddaughter. Donna also proudly taught her kids how to make Christmas wreaths for themselves during the Holidays. Donna loved to teach her children crafts and baking and also taught Sunday School at her church while her children were growing up.

Donna also loved going for long rides with no destination in mind. She loved finding new roads and feeling the excitement of seeing where they took her.

Donna had a true love and passion for life. Her love for her family was filled with pride, and what she called her greatest accomplishment. She would beam with pride as she spoke of them. Family was her whole world, as she was theirs too.

Donna was loved by many and leaves behind her children: Sandra Gaudette and John Lynn of Florida, Donna Gaudette of St. Albans, Roy Gaudette and his wife Becky of Richford, Roland Gaudette and his wife Laurie of Sheldon and Christina Gaudette of Enosburgh Falls; 12 Grandchildren: Robert Champaine, Stacey Lafar and husband Greg, Brian Champaine, Andrew Gaudette, Corey Rooney, Brandi and Brittany Gaudette, Molly, Collin and Hannah Gaudette and Connor and Zackary Gaudette, 3 Step Grandchildren, their significant others, 17 Great-grandchildren, many nieces, nephews and cousins.
