Obituary

Dorothy Rose Burrington, 82, passed away on Monday, September 12, 2022. Dorothy "Dot" was born in Hardwick on July 8, 1940 to Myron and Blanch Salls where she and her sisters, Goldie Salls (Chartier) and Sylvia Salls (Joyal) were raised and attended school. Dorothy graduated from Hardwick Academy in 1958 and soon married Morris Herbert Burrington on December 29, 1958. They lived and farmed in Danville until 1972 when they moved to West Danville.

Dot stayed busy doing the things she enjoyed which included working in her greenhouse, maintaining her small farm as well as a window repair business. In 1989 she joined the Caledonia Farmer's Market where she and Morris could be found selling baked goods, crafts and plants. Later into the fall, Dot would make and sell Christmas wreaths that decorated homes throughout the county. Their pride for the community and love of the land inspired Dot and Morris to maintain the Joe's Pond Beach for many years. Dorothy was predeceased by her husband, Morris in 2018.

Contributions in her memory may be made to the West Danville Community Club, P.O. Box 6, West Danville, VT 05873, for the continued maintenance of the beach and surrounding community.  Arrangements are with the des Groseilliers Funeral Home.
