Description

Gloria D. Lewis, 80 passed away peacefully on the evening of December 10, 2020 at her home with her daughter Beverly, granddaughter Danyell, and grandson Ryan who have been by her side through her long battle with Alzheimer's

Born on July 21, 1940 in Randolph, VT to Joseph & Ruth Dumont. Gloria attended and graduated from Randolph High School in 1958. Gloria married Wayne Flint in 1958. Together they had 4 children before divorcing in 1969. On June 9, 1979 Gloria married the love of her life, Carlyle O. Lewis, Sr. in Connecticut where they lived until 1992 when they moved back to Vermont and made their home in Williamstown.

Gloria enjoyed spending time with her family and friends, camping, Nascar, baseball and football. She was an avid fan of the Boston Red Sox and Pittsburgh Steelers. She enjoyed knitting, jigsaw puzzles, cribbage, canasta, yahtzee/kismet, Country music and dancing. She was well known for her baking, “Gloria’s Goodies”, which she sold at farmers markets in Chelsea, Montpelier, Waterbury, VT and Orford, NH.

Gloria enjoyed spending time at camp (Groton Forrest Road Campground) this summer with her daughter Bev, along with family and friends. Gloria’s 80th birthday was a surprise to her at camp. It made her happy to see the people from the campground. She loved the bonfires, as she called them, that we had at camp and at home.

Gloria was a 22 year member of the American Legion Auxiliary Unit #10 in Barre, VT. Gloria was employed at Gallagher Lumber as the office manager and bookkeeper, before becoming a cashier at Hannaford’s (formerly Howard’s Market) where she worked until retiring to stay home fulltime and care for her husband with Parkinson’s.
