Michalina (Miki) Wasung

1945 - 2015 TOWNSHEND, VT Michalina (Miki) Marian Wasung died peacefully at home on December 7, 2015. She was 70. Born August 16, 1945 in Newark, NJ, she attended schools in Springfield and Chatham, NJ, graduating from Chatham High School and Beloit College in Beloit, Wisconsin, and studied abroad in Europe. She did graduate work at the University of South Carolina and received a Master's of Education from Keene State College. Miki traveled throughout the country, living in Cambridge and the Bay Area before finally settling in Vermont. Since she was a young girl Miki spent vacations at the Jersey Shore in Belmar and loved to walk the boardwalks and later enjoyed visiting her parents in southern Arizona. A true life-longer learner, Miki was a voracious reader, especially loving intelligent mysteries and history. She was a gifted artist who made the world more beautiful through many mediums from quilting, sewing and knitting to her extensive gardens which bloomed from early spring to late fall. She especially delighted in daffodils and cherished her dogs. She helped start Little Valley Nursery School in Townshend and was involved in the Townshend School Club. Miki served the Town of Townshend for many years as the Town Treasurer. She was a wonderfully unique individual who was always true to herself and was happy to help people. She wrote thousands of postcards to family and friends and was an amazing and beloved Babcia to her three grandchildren, reading to her grandson almost every night up until her death. She is survived by her daughter, Ellenka Wasung-Lott, her husband, Robert Wilson and their children Henry, Saza, and Lulu, all of Townshend, her sister and brother-in-law, Marya & Paul Klee of Lyme, NH and many cousins, nieces, nephews and friends. She was predeceased by her mother, Michalina Wasung and her longtime companion, Howard Lott. SERVICES: A celebration of her life will be held in mid-August. The family requests that donations be made to the Free Care Fund at Grace Cottage Hospital in Townshend.
