Debra Kozlakowski

1954 - 2015 GUILFORD, VT Debra Mary Kozlakowski died at her home November 19, 2015, after a very courageous battle with cancer. She was 61. Born July 30, 1954, to George J. Butterfield and Jeannette M. Butterfield (nee Seymour), Debra graduated in 1972 from Easthampton High School. While raising her two daughters, she worked as a licensed home health care nurse. She was also a Girl Scout troop leader, a very active member of the local PTA, and a Sunday school teacher at Notre Dame in Easthampton. In 1985, Debra moved to Guilford and worked for Vermont National Bank (now Peoples United) for more than 10 years as a customer service representative in investment banking. Eager to grow in her profession, she took many classes and seminars in banking. She also worked for Comcast as a customer service representative. From 2010 until her retirement in 2013, she worked at the Northeastern Family Institute in Brattleboro helping teenage girls. Debra loved spending time with her family, especially her grandchildren; baking; knitting; going dancing and to the beach; and watching comedies. She also loved traveling, seeing new places, meeting new people, and trying new activities (zip lining!) She volunteered frequently during the holidays, helping those less fortunate. She is survived by her husband, Joseph Kozlakowski; daughters, Jeannette M. Langlois-Barrows of Brattle-boro and Gail L. Stout of Harrisville, RI; sons-in-law, Joshua E. Barrows and John Stout; grandchildren, Mollie S. Young, Luke J. Stout, and Emmit J. Barrows; step-children, Joey and Stacey Kozlakowski of Northampton; siblings, Catherine Butterfield of Greenfield, Doreen Breed of Wales, MA and Cindy Molitoris of Guilford; many nieces and nephews; and her "adopted" family, the Tuttles.
