Bennett

1927 - 2015 VERNON, VT. Betty Lois Bennett died August 10 at the Vernon Green Nursing Home where she had resided for many years. She was born June 28, 1927 in Gary, Indiana to Hilma Wyland and Maurice Fairchild Bennett and graduated from Chesterton, Indiana High School in 1945. Betty moved to Vermont from Atlanta, GA in 1981. She lived for several years at the old Brooks House Apartments and worked in housekeeping at the Brattleboro Retreat. Later she moved to West Brattleboro and then to Vernon where she lived first at Vernon Hall and then at Vernon Green. Betty's loves were music and people. She had an exceptional memory for the words and tunes of all the old songs of the '40's and '50's. She loved to sing. She also had a good sense of humor and, despite a life full of troubles, kept a positive attitude. She attended the Congregational Church in Brattleboro and later Green Mountain Chapel in West Brattleboro. She is survived by her son, Gary Alan Young and his wife, Cindy, of Austin, TX and her granddaughters, Sarah and Hannah, as well as her sister, Peggy Bennett Anderson, of Granby, MA, and her nieces, Judy Anderson and Teja Anderson, and her nephew, Daniel Anderson. Her family is very grateful to the staff of Vernon Green for their warmth and care for Betty over the recent years.
