NORTHFIELD — Corinne Lucille (Hart) Smith, 82, of Northfield, Vt., passed away peacefully at Central Vermont Medical Center on the afternoon of April 8, 2013.
Born and raised in Northfield as the eldest child of Raymond and Nina Hart, Corinne graduated from Northfield High School in 1948. She later graduated from nurses training as a registered nurse from Barre City Hospital, working there and at Mary Fletcher Hospital in Burlington.
She married William S. Smith Jr., of Plainfield, Vt., in 1962. They resided for many years on Hollister Hill Road, outside of Plainfield. In 1992 her husband passed away, and she returned to her native Northfield.
Generally regarded as one of the finest knitters on the planet and a connoisseur of fine Vermont maple creemees, Corinne also loved crossword puzzles, jigsaw puzzles, and traveling around her beloved Vermont countryside. Her quiet humor and gentle spirit will be greatly missed.
She is survived by her four children and their spouses, Ian and Alizabeth Smith, of Richmond, Ind., William and Nanette Smith, of Northfield, Vt., Samantha and Thomas Dings, of Hopkinton, Mass., and Nina and Dan Ostrander, of Ooltewah, Tenn. In addition, Corinne greatly enjoyed her 10 beloved grandchildren: Amanda Dings, Alexander Smith, Maia Smith, Ethan Smith, Rachel Ostrander, Grey Kramer, Greta Smith, Zachary Ostrander, Elijah Smith and Ian Kramer. Two sisters, Deanna Marvin, of Florida, and Donna Fisher, of Pennsylvania, and a brother, Lynn Hart, of Waterbury, Vt., also survive.
In lieu of flowers, the family asks that contributions be made to Central Vermont Home Health and Hospice, 600 Granger Road, Barre, VT 05641-5369. A June memorial service is being planned.
