DeLuca, Margaret - Brattleboro, Vt  
Margaret DeLuca 1922 - 2015 BRATTLEBORO Margaret (Peggy) Frances DeLuca, 93, passed away peacefully at her home early Wednesday morning, July 29, 2015 with her daughter by her side. Peggy was born and raised in Bridgeport, CT in 1922, daughter of William and Ann (Tickey) Flanagan. She graduated from Warren Harding High School in 1940. In November of 1942, she eloped with her high school sweetheart and love of her life, Michael DeLuca. Their storybook romance lasted 65 years, and she always carried his picture with her. They moved to Brooklyn, NY in 1942, where Michael was stationed with the United States Navy. Mrs. DeLuca trained as a nurse at Staten Island Hospital during World War II, where she continued to work as an R.N. after graduating in 1945. To this day she still has her nurse's cape and cap. Peggy took care of numerous veterans, newborn babies and others. Despite her experience in the maternity ward, she didn't recognize the signs of her own labor, and very nearly had her first child (Paul) on the Staten Island Ferry. Paul's middle name was Hamilton - the name of the ferry boat on which he was almost born. In 1950, the family moved to Greenwich, CT where Peggy worked at Greenwich Hospital until retiring in the 1970's. The years in Greenwich were filled with parties, clambakes, laughter and a sense of community rarely seen today. In 1982 she and Mickey moved to Florida, living in Palm Beach Gardens to be near their son, Daniel, who worked at Pratt & Whitney. Daniel had numerous patents on board the space shuttle, and his parents watched the launches with pride and awe. The couple split their time between Florida and New Hampshire until 2004, when they moved to Vermont to be closer to family. Peggy was predeceased by her son, Paul, in 1996, her husband, Michael in 2008, and her son, Daniel in 2013. She leaves her daughter, Maria DeLuca of Brattleboro, VT and Maria's partner, Marty Scales of Bridgeport, CT. Also a sister, Mary Ann Hornish of New Hope, PA, numerous nieces, nephews, and grandchildren. She also leaves many special friends, including Mollie Muldaur, Tom Robertson and Kevin Hulick. Her relationship to daughters-in-law, Ginger DeLuca and Linda Judkins were a profound comfort and solace to her after the losses of her sons. Her tuxedo cat, Crow, was her guardian angel. Peggy was known for her unique sense of humor, love of flowers, gardening, animals, entertaining, music and dancing. She loved to get dressed up and hit the dance floor, which she did well into her 90's. The Brattleboro Senior Center was a favorite place to socialize, dance and volunteer. She cherished her family gatherings on the holidays. Mrs. DeLuca attended both Saint Michael Roman Catholic Church in Brattleboro and Our Lady of Mercy Parish in Putney. She was a member of the V.F.W. Ladies Auxiliary, Carl M. Dessaint Post #1034 in Brattleboro. The family would like to thank Brattleboro Senior Meals, Brattleboro Senior Center, Brattleboro Area Hospice, Visiting Nurse and Hospice for Vermont and New Hampshire, Senior Solutions and the many caregivers, friends, volunteers and clergy for their loving support, which allowed her to live out her years in the comfort of her own home. FUNERAL NOTICE: Friends are invited to call at the Atamaniuk Funeral Home Thursday evening from 7 to 9 p.m. The Liturgy of Christian Burial will be celebrated Friday at 11 a.m. at Our Lady of Mercy Church in Putney.

Earle, Gladys - Brattleboro  
Gladys Earle 1931 - 2015 Gladys Earle, loving wife, cherished mother, grandmother and friend passed away on Tuesday, July 21, 2015. A resident of the Thompson House since 2012, she loved socializing and thrived on visiting with the employees and residents. Failing in health, she still managed to demonstrate genuine interest and caring of others. She was born in Brattleboro on February 8, 1931 to Esther (Gerrish) and Gustave Raithel. Financial times were difficult and a hard work ethicwas learned and developed throughout her life as she left high school to work and help support the family, returning later to complete her education. On November 26, 1951 she married Robert Earle in Brattleboro. They raised two children and were then fortunate to have six grandchildren and one great-granddaughter. Family was what Gladys cherished the most and "Nan" loved her household pets and wild animals as well. Herb, the pet crow who ate almonds and bread she fed to him for many years. There were generations of chipmunks. Stray dogs were guided to her home. She especially treasured her own Labradors. She was an avid knitter, cook, baker, and a favorite mom with neighborhood children as she sewed the coolest clothes, made May baskets, homemade Christmas decorations and hosted great doll parties. Many summers were spent on Spofford Lake which brought her great joy even though cooking was on an electric skillet and water was carried from the spring. She lived a life of simplicity. Gladys worked as manager of the Brattleboro Memorial Hospital coffee shop for 37 years.Upon her retirement she was honored with the planting of a young cherry tree on the hospital lawn which held a plaque citing her years of dedication. Additionally, she was named "Auxiliarian of the Year" shortly before her retirement. She loved her volunteers and customers and until a few days before her death, she was remembering the tomato soup, seafood chowder and crabmeat rolls that were her signature lunch favorites. Her years there were a very important part of her life. She cared deeply for the sensitive and compassionate caregivers at the Thompson House and was reminding them of her love until the day of her passing. This love was reciprocated as well. When word was spread that "Gladdie" was nearing the end, her loyal caregivers rallied around her. Gladys Earle (wife, mom and grandmother), will be treasured in our memories for always. Her compassion, sensitivity, joy in a simple life, sense of humor, hard work ethic, and love of family will forever serve as an example to us.
