Obituary for Glenn Ellsworth Booth

St. Albans/Milton - Glenn E. Booth, 96, a longtime area resident passed away on Sunday, April 4, 2010, at his home with his loving family at his side. Born on February 11, 1914, in Milton, Vermont, Glenn was the oldest son of the late John L. and Etta H. (Miller) Booth. On September 20, 1941, in Milton, Glenn married the former Barbara Campbell, who survives him. Glenn was a 1932 graduate of Milton High School. He then operated a service station in Milton for Standard Oil. He joined the U.S. Army Air Corps in 1942 and following his Honorable Discharge in 1946, he was employed by St. Albans Electric Appliance Company for 33 years, retiring in 1978. Glenn and Barb spent 20 wonderful winters in Florida. Throughout his life, he enjoyed golfing, spending time in the garden, “bird watching”, and was a diehard Duke University Basketball fan, but most especially, he enjoyed dancing with Barb, his high school sweetheart and wife of 68 years. They both always say dancing keeps you young. Glenn’s other great joy was the special times he spent with his family. He was a 58 year member of St. Paul’s United Methodist Church, where he served as an usher for many years, was a member of the Phi Alpha Class, Chi Rho and the Wednesday morning Methodist Men’s Group, member of Green Mountain Post #1, American Legion and a 68 year member of Seneca Lodge # 40, F&AM in Milton and Chittenden Chapter #59, O.E.S. Survivors include his wife, Barbara of St. Albans, their 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, his beloved great grandchildren, Manning and Zak Ellis and David and Livi Holland; several special nieces and nephews and special friends, Kim and David Charbonneau and Joyce Manchester. In addition to his parents, Glenn was preceded in death by a sister Dorothy Bray and her husband, James and a brother, Miller Booth. Glenn’s family will receive friends on Thursday April 8, 2010, from 11:00 AM until Noon at the St. Paul’s United Methodist Church on Church Street. A funeral service will then be conducted at Noon with the Reverend Herman Benjamin officiating. Interment with Military Honors will be held on Thursday at 3:00 P.M. at the Booth family lot in Milton Village Cemetery. Those planning an expression of sympathy are asked to consider memorials in Glenn’s name to St. Paul’s United Methodist Church, 11 Church Street, St. Albans, VT 05478, the Franklin County Home Health Agency, 3 Home Health Circle, St. Albans, VT 05478 or the Breast Care Center at Fletcher Allen Health Care, Attn: Development Office-461OH4, 1 South Prospect Street, Burlington, VT 05401.
