Obituary Condolences

Frank H. Mudgett BENNINGTON Frank H. Mudgett, 93, passed away Friday, Dec. 5, 2008, at Fillmore Pond in Bennington.Born in Johnson, he graduated from Johnson High School and the University of Vermont. After graduation from UVM in 1937, Frank traveled the United States during 1937 and 1938, finding work in various jobs and seeing the country before returning to Vermont. It was love that bought Frank back to Vermont. He had met a lovely young Johnson Normal School student. She was a new teacher in Huntington Center when the couple decided to buy a wedding ring. On a beautiful spring day in 1941, Frank Mudgett and Irene Vondle traveled to Rupert, and met Frank's brother, Howard, and his wife, Marjorie, who stood with them as they were married by the Rev. J. Duke King of the Rupert Congregational Church. The young couple returned to Northern Vermont where Frank was working for the Hood Company in Newport. That spring, Irene completed her teaching responsibilities in Huntington Center. Later that year the couple found a business opportunity in Bennington. They moved there and opened the six lane "Bowlaway" on Union Street which they operated for several years. Frank and Irene lived on Union Street until building a home in 1958 on what is now Red Pine Road. Frank worked many years for the Vermont Department of Employment until retirement in 1978. After Irene sold her business, "The Yardstick," the couple enjoyed many fine retirement years. Summers were spent at Lake Carmi; there was a hunting/fishing camp on South America Pond in the Northeast Kingdom, and a winter home in Florida. Frank enjoyed hunting and fishing all his life. A skilled trapper, hunter and fisherman, he was frequently in the woods from youth throughout his life. Frank leaves his wife, Irene, and several nieces, nephews and their families.
