Anne Vigneault Sherman EAST MONTPELIER — Anne Vigneault Sherman, age 85, died peacefully at home on Dec. 25, 2018. She was born on March 26, 1933, at home in Williamstown, to Phyllis (Taylor) and Paul Henry Vigneault. She was the oldest of eight children Yvonne (deceased), Paul “Buddy” (deceased), Sandra (deceased), Patricia, Gayle, Lorinda and George. She was predeceased by her husband of 59 years, Roger Elton Sherman; and was always especially proud of their three children Joey (Yukie), Todd (Rochelle) and Heidi (Mike); seven grandchildren Katrina (Ryan), Zachary (Sarah), Gianna, Anneliese, Neil, William and Sam; and three great-grandchildren Emi, Kai and Brantlee. Anne devoted her life to raising her children, and serving her community. She was the perfect schoolroom mother, a 15+ year 4-H sewing leader and her children’s biggest fan at concerts, plays and sporting events! She was an East Montpelier town auditor and Board of Adjustment member. She sang in the Old Brick Church Choir for many years. She belonged to the Montpelier Emblem Club and was a lifetime member of the Montpelier Ladies Auxiliary to the Veterans of Foreign Wars where she served as local president, state president, state soloist and national soloist. Anne took great joy in life. She loved nature, particularly birds and flowers, and she was an amazing seamstress, crafter, knitter and crocheter. She had a great sense of humor and often delighted friends and family with her “colorful” jokes. She had the most beautiful soprano voice which she shared locally and nationally. Her family is especially grateful to all the friends, family and Town of East Montpelier employees who looked out for her well-being in recent years. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the East Montpelier Fast Squad at 54 Village Acres, East Montpelier, VT 05651. A celebration of Anne’s life will be held in the spring.
