Obituary for Heather Joyce Barrette
Sheldon – Heather Joyce Barrette, a lifelong area resident passed away peacefully on Monday, October 9th, 2017, at the UVM Medical Center surrounded by her loving family.

Born in St. Albans, on September 30th, 1961, she was the daughter of Carol A. (Westover) Livingston and the late Asa John Livingston, II. Heather was 56 years old.

On June 1st 1984, in St. Luke’s Episcopal Church, she married Brian Barrette, who survives her.

Heather was a 1979 graduate of Bellows Free Academy and furthered her education at Lyndon State College, graduating in 1983. She was then associated with Northwest Counseling and Support Services for 30 + years, where she was passionate about helping and serving others. It gave Heather great joy to help people in need and her devotion to supporting others was beyond measure.

Heather was a warm, outgoing person who was known to be the life of the party. She enjoyed listening to music and having dance parties with friends/family. She was an avid sports fan and dedicated to following her children throughout the years. She genuinely loved life and had open arms to everyone around her. One of Heather’s favorite pastimes was visiting Mystic, CT, where she would soak up the sun while sitting next to the ocean.

Survivors include her mother, Carol, of St. Albans; her husband of 33 years, Brian, of Sheldon and their children, Cody John Barrette and his wife, Mary, of Clifton Park, New York, Taylor Joseph Barrette and his significant other, Allie Leach, of Rochester, New Hampshire and Samantha Jo Barrette and her significant other, Taylor Congleton of Colchester.
