MARIE K. (MCCORMICK) SENESAC VERGENNES - Marie K. (McCormick) Senesac, 93, of Vergennes, died at home on May 25, 2014, with her children at her side. Marie was born Aug. 22, 1920, in Bristol, the daughter of Clinton and Ella (Little) McCormick. She attended grade school at the one-room schoolhouse now on the grounds at Shelburne Museum. After graduating from Vergennes High School, she received her business degree from Champlain College, Burlington. She worked at the Burlington Free Press. After growing up in Vergennes, Marie lived her early years with Gerald on his family farm in Addison. During their 65 years together, they spent time in Waterbury and Burlington, but found their home in Vergennes where they raised their family. In recent years, after Gerald's passing, and with declining health problems, she has been lovingly cared for in her home. Her primary caregiver, Iona Smith, has been very important in Marie's life for the past eight years. We are also grateful for the wonderful care given by Donna Beirholm, Juanita Hornbeck, Sandy Driscoll, Jane Kearns, and Robin Warner. The family also wants to thank and acknowledge the entire staff at Addison County Home Health and Hospice. She was predeceased by her husband, Gerald. She leaves five children, daughter, Kathleen Douglas of Vergennes, and her three children, Michelle Chamberlain and husband, Todd, Michael Douglas and wife, Heather, and Matthew Douglas and wife, Stephanie; son, Gerry and wife, Suzanne, of Colchester, and son, Joel; daughter, Mary Thal and husband, Ray, of Denver, Colo., and children, Elizabeth and Raymond; son, David and wife, Denise, of Ferrisburgh, and sons, Brian and wife, Karri Crossman, and Dan Crossman and wife, Tammy; and son, Dennis and wife, Jeanne, of Waltham, and children, Hilary, Hayden, Nicholas, Harrison, and Lucas. She was also blessed with great-grandchildren, Grace and A.J. Chamberlain, Vincent Douglas, Madison and Mackenzie Douglas, and Weston Crossman. She was predeceased by her sister, Helen; and is survived by her brothers, Hubert "Bud" McCormick and wife, Eleanor, of Burlington, and James "Skip" McCormick and wife, Jeannine, of Delmar, N.Y. She was our family historian. Her passion of preserving memories is captured in her collection of family photos and newspaper articles marking those momentous dates, and those kitchen gadgets and farm tools that an aunt, uncle, father or mother used in their lifetime. Aunt Marie (or Aunt Mickey to some) was always the one to call for those questions of "do you know?" because she was the one that remembered dates, places and people. Not many could beat her out watching Jeopardy or Wheel of Fortune! She was a former member of Addison Home Dem Group and was a current member of the St. Anne's Society and a devoted member of St. Peter's Parish. She lived her Catholic faith with reverence and dedication to family, along with her countless hours of community service. A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated Monday, June 2, 2014, at St. Peter's Church in Vergennes, at 11 a.m. Interment will be in St. Peter's Cemetery in Vergennes. Friends may call at the Brown-McClay Funeral Home in Vergennes, Sunday, June 1, 2014, from 5 to 8 p.m. In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to the Addison Home Health Agency.
