Jane Nye Burditt
1918-2013 MANCHESTER Jane Nye Burditt, 94, of Manchester, Vermont passed away on December 9, 2013. She was the beloved wife of John F. Burditt for 60 years until his death in 2007. Her children, Faraday Burditt de la Camara and her husband, Manuel; Frederic Burditt and his wife, Jean; John Burditt and his wife, Terri; Tim Burditt and his wife, Lisa; and Benjamin Burditt and his wife, Lisa survive her. She was blessed with 17 grandchildren and one great grandchild who will fondly remember her as "Mamoo". Jane was born in Orange, New Jersey on December 20, 1918 to Ernest and Mary Nye. A graduate of Wells College, Jane had fascinating and varied careers. She worked as an editor at Curtis Publishing and then Readers Digest in New York. When she was raising her five children, she taught at Rippowam-Cisqua School in Bedford, New York. She later co-founded Educator's Ally, a successful teacher placement firm that is still thriving today. After she and Jack retired to Vermont, she ventured into two new careers: one as a farmer raising Polled Herefords at Rolling Meadow Farm and the other as a featured writer for Vermont Life and other regional magazines. She was also involved in her local community in many ways including serving as a board member of The Long Trail School. Jane loved Vermont, the mountains, her bluebirds, the birches and the wildflowers. She was a swimmer, golfer, hiker, skier, and rejoiced in nature. In her quiet moments, she was an avid reader, thinker, writer and friend. Her greatest love of all was for her husband Jack and family. She will be sorely missed. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in her memory to "The Community Food Cupboard", P.O. Box 864 Manchester Vermont 05255, Zion Episcopal Church P.O. Box 717 Manchester Center, VT 05255 or Long Trail School Scholarship Fund 1045 Kirby Hollow Rd. Dorset, VT 05255. There will be a celebratory reception between 3 and 4:30 PM on Friday, December 20th, at the Equinox Village.
