Obituary for Elaine Lace Begnoche

St. Albans – Elaine Lace Begnoche, 89, passed away peacefully at the UVM Medical Center in Burlington on Wednesday, March 4, 2015. Elaine was born in Swanton, Vermont on May 2, 1925, the daughter of Elward and Lillian (Norris) Lace. She attended school in Swanton and upon graduating high school in 1943, she began a long career as a secretary. She spent 25 years working for the Central Vermont Railroad in various departments. Elaine worked the telephone switchboard, as a bookkeeper and secretary in many different departments. She left the Railroad in 1969 to work for the St. Albans School System where she was secretary for 2 superintendents and 3 principals.

She retired in 1993. Elaine was a former member of the Business and Professional Women (BPW) and a member of St. Paul’s United Methodist Church. Although she was a full time working mother, Elaine always found time for her children, being a Den Mother for the Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts and a leader for the Blue Birds and Campfire Girls. Elaine was a wonderful cook and will be remembered for her delicious pies and date filled cookies. On July 29, 1950, Elaine married Leo Begnoche, who predeceased her in 2008.
