CABOT — Lois Imagene Domey was born in Hardwick, Sept. 30, 1915, to Edward and Ruth (Woods) Domey. She moved to Cabot in 1926 and graduated from Cabot High School.
She was married to Robert Domey for over 50 years and they lived in Keene, N.H., until retirement took them to Florida for winters and Vermont and family beckoned them back in the summer. After her husband died, Lois returned to Vermont permanently. For the last seven years Lincoln House in Barre has been her home where she enjoyed rides in the country and she participated in many activities.
Lois worked for Ye Goodee Shoppe, where she became a master craftsperson at hand-dipping chocolates. She and her husband purchased the candy store in 1958 and continued making the confections “the old fashioned way” until modern technology took over. Lois was also an excellent cook and baker and a great storyteller. She was a member of United Church of Cabot and a life member of Order of the Eastern Star.
Lois is survived by two brothers, Raymond, of Wichita, Kan., and Carlton (Marvie), of Cabot; eight nieces and nephews, Bonnie Bonnell, of Douglass, Kan., Patricia Ducharme, of Williamstown, Cheryl Huntley, of Cabot, John Domey, of Marshfield, Susan Domey-Allen, of Pembroke, Mass., Robyn LD Hall, of Coventry, Conn., Edward “Ted” Domey, of Cabot, Anne Domey, of Barre; 12 grandnieces and -nephews; and five great-grandnieces and -nephews.
