Obituary for Mary Jane Talbot (Dextraze)
Mary Jane (Dextraze) Talbot, 85, of Barton VT died unexpectedly on Christmas Day, 2017 in Burlington VT, after celebrating with her loving family.
She was born in Eden Vermont, April 10, 1932, to the late Wilfred and Armenie (Richer) Dextraze.
Mary Jane lived with her family in Williston VT and surrounding towns until the age of 17 when they moved to Barton where her father made and sold furniture. It was in Barton where Mary Jane met Leo Talbot who she married on September 24, 1955. She loved going out dancing with Leo and “the crew”, playing card games with family and friends, and being on the bowling league. Several years after her husband Leo’s passing, she married Roger Talbot in 1981. Throughout her life she worked at the Barton Progressive Furniture Co, The Dress Shop in Barton, Barton Dry Cleaners, and Colonial Manor Nursing Home. Mary Jane loved being on the road, wherever the road took her. There were few roads in the Northeast Kingdom that she may have not traveled. She loved being with her children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren, especially on Sundays, birthdays, holidays and every day! She spent the last 3 months at Newport Health Care Center where she shared a room with her dear sister-in-law Collette Boutin. She loved it there, was grateful for the assistance and care of the dedicated staff and enjoyed participating in the activities.
Mary Jane leaves her two loving daughters and their families: Jo-Ann (Talbot) Hudson and husband Bill, Claire Talbot and husband Robin Lacoss, grand children Derrick Hudson and wife Anna, Heather (Hudson) Girard and husband Justin, Joel Lacoss and fiancé Lynsey Hartshorn, her treasured great grandchildren Skyler Pike-Girard, Khloe Girard, and Finley Hudson. She also leaves her baby sister Theresa Smith of MA, sister-in-law Collette Boutin of VT, and brother-in-law Claude Talbot of CT, along with many nieces and nephews.
Mary Jane was predeceased by her loving husband Leo in 1973, her husband Roger in 1994, by her great grandson Kyle Pike-Hudson, and by her siblings: Norman, Raymond, Leo, and Eli Dextraze, Maggie Lampron, Yvette Poirier, and Annette Potter.
