SOUTH BURLINGTON — Lois B. Condon passed away on Oct. 12, 2015, at the Vermont Respite House at age 91.
Born in Marshfield, Vt., the daughter of Frank and Beryl (Gilman) Brown, Lois received her nurses training at the Mary Fletcher School of Nursing. She worked for the Burlington VNA and then at Pediatric Associates for more than 25 years.
Lois married Henry H. Condon of Burlington on June 21, 1947. They raised their three children in Burlington and Mallets Bay, Colchester. In retirement, Lois and Henry lived in St. Albans and spent 25 winters in Venice Beach, Fla.
After Henry passed away in 1994, Lois moved to The Pines Senior Living Community in South Burlington where she enjoyed dear friends and a very active social life for more than 14 years.
Lois is survived by her children, Phillip Condon and his partner, Jane Suder of St. Albans, Patricia Condon of Colchester, Perry and Cathy Condon of Burlington; grandchildren, Coleen and Callie Kohaut of St. Albans, Heather and Jim Smith and her great grandchildren, Jermaine and Amaya of Colchester. She is also survived by her sister, Betty Davis of South Burlington, and many beloved nieces and nephews.
Lois was predeceased by her husband, Henry, her parents, her daughter-in-law, Tressa Condon, and her siblings, Winston Brown, Ralph Brown, and Alice Bellmare.
At Lois’ request, a private graveside service will be held later this week at St. Albans Bay Cemetery.
Friends and family are invited to a celebration of her life to be held on Sunday, Oct. 18, 2015, from 2 to 5 p.m. at the Sheraton Hotel and Conference Center.
