Kathryn J. Hallock NORTH DUXBURY — Kathryn Joan (Beaton) Hallock, 87, passed away peacefully at Berlin Health and Rehabilitation Center on Monday evening, April 8, 2019. She was born in New York City on June 26, 1931, when her father, John Beaton, was a stone polisher working on the Empire State Building. As an infant, she moved to North Duxbury and later attended the one-room schoolhouse next to the house she grew up in. She attended Waterbury High School and the Sheldon Beauty Academy in Burlington where she was delighted to win the 1st place trophy in a hairstyling contest and to become a licensed cosmetologist in 1948. She later went on to earn her GED. As a teenager, she worked as a waitress at the Waterbury Inn and as an aide in the Women’s Unit at the Vermont State Hospital where she met her husband, Grant C. Hallock (dec. 1984). They were wed in 1948 and had two sons Gregory and Guy. Later, she was employed at Grant’s Dept. Store on the Barre-Montpelier Road as a salesperson, the Joyal Vocational School at VSH where she taught GED classes, and then worked for the Vermont Dept. of Motor Vehicles as a registration clerk, retiring in 1996. Kathryn was also predeceased by her parents John and Myra (Morse) Beaton; three sisters Mariana Towne, Stella Kennedy and Myra Dow; her brother, Robert Beaton; her daughter-in-law, Carol Anne Harkins-Hallock; and a stepson, Bruce Hallock.
