St. Albans/Swanton - Anna Louise Dumas, 74, long time resident of Lake Street Housing in St. Albans, passed away peacefully on Tuesday evening, October 12, 2010, at Northwestern Medical Center with her loving friends and family at her side. Born in Burlington on August 28, 1936, she was the daughter of the late Marion Bevins Dumas and Phillip A. Dumas. She was a resident of the Brandon Training School for 28 years. Upon her exit from Brandon Training School, she made her home in Swanton with Justin and Musetta Bluto and then with Winfred and Laura Decker of Georgia, Vermont. In 1997 she made her own home at Lake Street Housing in St. Albans, where she resided until May of 2010. Anna was a member of Holy Angels Parish, the Ladies of St. Anne, St. Albans Senior Center, and Club Respite. She was also a volunteer teacher of religious education at Holy Angels. Anna was an avid bingo and card player, loved to sing and listen to country music, and was very proud of her extensive collection of beautiful porcelain dolls. Above all, she loved spending her time with family and friends. Anyone who Anna was close to was considered family by Anna. Anna leaves behind her sisters; Gladys Gonyea and her husband, Jerry, of South Burlington, Audrey Dumas of Burlington, Susan Goodwin and her husband, David, of West Burke, and her brother Eugene Dumas and his wife, Linda, of Florida, as well as several nieces and nephews.

Anna was predeceased by her parents and her sister, Amelia Pearault, on October 2, 1999. Anna was the most kind, gentle, and loving woman who touched the lives of every person who was blessed to know her. She had an amazing heart and smile and appreciation for life that won’t soon be forgotten. The world was a better place because of her. We are all better people for having known her and Heaven is now even brighter with her in it.
