NORTH BENNINGTON -- Fannie Rogers Bahan, 98, a resident of Hall Street, North Bennington and widow of Carleton Bahan, died on Jan. 1, 2004 at Prospect Nursing Home in North Bennington after a brief illness.

Born in Manchester on April 20, 1905, she was the daughter of Daniel Provan and Bertha (Wyman) Provan of Manchester. She received her education in Manchester schools. In early years she was married to the late Maynard Carlisle of Manchester, she was also the wife of Frank Rogers of South Cambridge, N.Y., who is deceased. Most of her life she and her husband Frank were self-employed in the apartment house business and also purchased and ran the Edgewater Inn on Pleasant Street in Bennington from 1964-1968.

Fannie’s biggest love (other than family and friends) was her passion for gardening and flowers. All her homes from Manchester, South Cambridge, Bennington, Pownal and North Bennington were surrounded by big flower gardens which she left behind as her legacy. She also enjoyed dancing and belonged to various clubs in Bennington; the VFW, American Legion and Fraternal Order of Eagles Auxiliaries and the Women of the Moose. She enjoyed their dinner-dances up until she was in her late 80s. She was a big dog lover and always had one or two dogs all throughout her life and up until lately she enjoyed the company of her granddaughter Terry’s dog “Cassie” and her grandson Steve’s dog “Daisy.”

Survivors include a granddaughter, Theresa (Terry) Wyman and her husband Richard of Winhall, and her grandson Stephen Gangloff and his wife Patti of South Cambridge; great-grandchildren Barton Coburn of Londonderry and Ryan Matthew Gangloff and Laura Gangloff of South Cambridge. She is predeceased by a sister, Carrie Hogue of Fairfield, Conn. and a daughter and son-in-law, Mavis Carlisle Gangloff and Harold Gangloff of Bennington.

Family and friends are invited to Mahar & Son Funeral Home in Bennington on Sunday, Jan. 4 from 6 to 8 p.m. when the family will be in attendance. A prayer service will be held Sunday at 7:30 p.m. with Rev. David Jinno, Pastor of the North Bennington Baptist Church officiating.
