EARDENSOHN, KATHLEEN ONDIS  
KATHLEEN ONDIS EARDENSOHN - MARSHFIELD - Kathleen Ondis Eardensohn, 62, died at her home on Dec. 19, 2014, with her friend and companion, Gregory Sanford, and their daughters, Dosia and Emma Sanford, by her side. Ondis was born on Oct. 11, 1952, in Nashville, Tenn., the daughter of Albert "Gene" and Liddell Eardensohn. Ondis attended Trinity College in Burlington and graduated from the University of Vermont. She was a caring and loving person who worked for years in a series of mental health services in Vermont, as well as a hospice worker. Ondis later worked for the US Postal Service in Plainfield and as postmaster in Marshfield. Diagnosed with cancer almost 20 years ago, Ondis used her experiences to help others with the disease. For years she drove cancer patients to their appointments and offered counsel and an ear to those just diagnosed and those receiving end-of-life care. She actively participated in Kindred Connections and other cancer groups and developed a wide network of friends in the cancer communities. She was admired by all for her determination, courage and commitment to helping others. Throughout it all, she shared her love and strength with her family. As she wished, Ondis died at home and was buried on her property, looking out at the Worcester Range. In addition to her mother, her partner, and daughters, Ondis is survived by her three brothers, Paul Eardensohn and his wife, Tory, of Warren, John Eardensohn and his wife, Patty, of Poway, Calif., and Richardson Eardensohn of Florence, Mass.; many cousins, nephews, and nieces; as well as her numerous friends.

GRIPPIN, BETTY LUCILLE  
BETTY LUCILLE GRIPPIN - SOUTH BURLINGTON - Betty Lucille Grippin, 88, of South Burlington, our loving mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and inspiration, passed away Saturday, Dec. 20, 2014, with family by her side in the University of Vermont Medical Center. Betty was born May 30, 1926, in Binghamton, N.Y., to Harold and Edith Goodrich, and graduated with highest honors from Binghamton North Senior High School in 1945. She worked at WNBF radio and television in Binghamton, writing ad copy before marrying Spencer L. Grippin in 1955 and becoming an Air Force wife, mother and Domestic Engineer. Life in the military meant moving every few years to a different base; Spokane, Wash., Granby, Mass., Denver, Colo., Ludlow, Mass., Grand Forks, N.D., Bainbridge, N.Y., Ramey, PR, and finally Springfield, Mass.; and months with dad away on deployment during the later years of the Vietnam War. Mom was the family foundation, inspiration, sewer, knitter, reader, cook, lunch mom, teacher, bookkeeper, banker, tax preparer, planner, counselor, and most intelligent woman we will ever know. We were always proud of her and proud to be her children and grandchildren. She loved crossword puzzles and Scrabble, and was a voracious reader. Even at 88, and with only one good eye, she was still reading like it was going out of style. Mostly she loved family, especially family gatherings for birthdays, thanksgiving and Christmas most of all. We will miss her dearly, especially at this time of the year, but we know she will be with us smiling at the joyful faces of the little ones and all our laughter, and singing along with us at the piano. Mom was predeceased by her parents, Harold and Edith Goodrich; stepfather, Elbert Jensen; sister, Arlene Grippin; former husband, Spencer; infant son, Dale; and grandson, Derrick. She is survived by her sons, David Grippin and wife, Doris, of South Burlington, and Brian Grippin of Milton; daughters, Denise Smith and husband, Mark, of Chicopee, Mass., Edith Gingras and husband, Michael, of Colchester, and Cheryl Gingras and husband, Edward, of Milton; grandchildren, James, Michael, Jessica, Jeffrey, Christine, Daniel, Jacquelyn, William, Stephanie, Shiloh, Raymond, and Millisa; and great-grandchildren, Dylan, Ethan, Jacob, Autumn, Alyssa, Caleb, Natalie, and Kolten. A gathering of friends and family to share warm memories and laughter will be held on Sunday, Jan. 11, 2015, at 1 p.m. at the Eagles Club on Shelburne Road in South Burlington. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Betty's name to the Burlington Food Shelf and Wounded Warriors Project.

Fisher, Jane Mary (Memoriam)  
Jane Mary Fisher 9/16/1945 - 10/17/2013 Remembering our Angel in Heaven at Christmas Time. The sadness never goes away, the silent tears still flow. You're thought of and so sadly missed, more than you'll ever know. But now you're with the angels safe and sound from Heaven above. We hold onto the memories and treasure them with love. Yet, special times like Christmas often make us wonder why God took you from this world. It was too soon to say good-bye. But memories are precious, they will last a lifetime through. We know that God has chosen you to be his angel too. Merry Christmas. Miss & Love You Always, Jerry D, Betsey, Jd, Joshua, Matthew, James, Teresa
