1936 - 2013 POWNAL Elizabeth "Beth" Cheadle, 77, for 28 years Case Management Supervisor of the Southwestern Vermont Council on Aging, died unexpectedly at her Pownal home on Dec. 26, 2013. Born to James Franklin Cheadle and Alda Ellen (Utterbach) Cheadle on March 1, 1936, in Sacramento, Calif., Beth graduated from the University of Redlands in 1958 and earned a Master of Religious Education degree from Berkeley Divinity School in 1960.

An avid gardener, a birdwatcher, and in her younger years, a hiker, Beth still enjoyed working in her large garden despite recent physical limitations.

Beth is survived by a nephew, Andrew Eadelman, great-nephew Bradley Eadelma and great-niece Beth (Eadelman) Peterson of Arizona; close friends and caregivers, Kim Jennings and Daryl Cook, son of her close friend Juanita Cook who passed March 2, 2013, of Pownal, and her beloved pets, Me-to, Jiminy Cricket & Hiku. A Friends memorial service will be held on Saturday, Feb. 8, 2014, at 11 a.m. at the Bennington Senior Center on Pleasant Street.
