Obituary for Barbara C. Booth

St. Albans – Barbara C. Booth , 91, a longtime area resident passed away peacefully on Saturday January 1, 2011, at her home with her daughters at her side. Born on February 26, 1919, in Milton, Barb was the daughter of the late William O. and Mildred (Blake) Campbell. On September 20, 1941, in Milton, Barb married Glenn E. Booth. Glenn passed away on April 4, 2010. Barb graduated from Milton High School in 1936 and the University of Vermont in 1940. In 1955, Barb and Glenn moved to St. Albans, where for over 20 years she served as secretary for St. Paul’s United Methodist Church, having done secretarial work most of her life. Barb and Glenn spent 20 winters in Bradenton, Florida, enjoying square dancing, singing, the warm weather and visits from their family. She was a 58 year member of St. Paul’s’ United Methodist Church, and active in the Phi Alfa, Chi Rho and Faith & Hope Circle of the United Methodist Women. She also was 60+ year member of Chittenden Chapter #59, Order of Eastern Star in Milton. Barb enjoyed reading, working on crossword puzzles and volunteering at the church. As an avid Red Sox fan, she was thrilled when they finally won the World Series. But the true love of her life was Glenn, her high school sweetheart and husband of 68 years and the hours they spent dancing to “their kind of music.” As their family grew, she became more and more proud and loved the special times she spent with them. Survivors include two daughters, Carol B. Mosher and her husband, Dale, of Newport and Pamela B. Mosher and her husband, Barry, of Fairfax; two grandchildren, Heidi Holland and her husband, Paul, of Alpharetta, Georgia and Stephen Ellis and his wife, Kristy, of Newport; her beloved great grandchildren, Manning and Zak Ellis and David and Livi Holland; several special nieces and nephews. In addition to her parents and husband, Barb was preceded in death by her stepfather, Harlie A. Perry, and sister-in-law and brother-in-law, as well as best friends, Dorothy and James Bray and brother-in-law, Miller Booth. The family would like to give a special thank you to her dear friends, Joyce Manchester and Mary Gladden, for their love and support. Barb’s family will receive friends on Tuesday January 4, 2011, from 11:00 AM until Noon at St. Paul’s United Methodist Church on Church Street. A funeral service will then be conducted at 12:00 Noon. Interment will be this spring at the Booth family lot in Milton Village Cemetery. Those planning an expression of sympathy are asked to consider memorials in Barb’s name to St. Paul’s United Methodist Church, 11 Church Street, St. Albans, VT 05478, the Breast Care Center at Fletcher Allen Health Care, Attn: Development Office-461OH4, 1 South Prospect Street, Burlington, VT 05401 or a charity of one’s choice.
