I received some very sad news this evening. Cathy Dodge sent an email to let us know her mom, Eileen Morrison, passed away Tuesday morning. Cathy said there will not be visiting hours or a funeral, but the family invites Eileen's Joe's Pond friends to join in a "Celebration of Life" for Eileen on Saturday, July 15th at 11 a.m. at the Lighthouse Christian Church on School Street in Montpelier.
If you wish to send a message to the family, Cathy's address it:
Catherine Morrison, 99 Greenwood Ln., Williston VT 05495.
I will post a link to Eileen's obituary as soon as it's available.
Eileen and her late husband, Burt, were Joe's Ponders for many years. They were very active in the Joe's Pond Association and had many friends here who have wonderful memories of them both. When I think of them I see Burt in his Sunfish - a very competent and competitive sailor; and tiny Eileen - always wearing a chic outfit and stylish hat - cheering him on from the Commodore's boat. We will miss Eileen and extend our deepest sympathy to Cathy and her family.
