Obituary for Nancy Ann Rochefort

Nancy Rochefort, 51 of Highgate, VT, passed away surrounded by her loving family on October 4, 2022 after a long battle with cancer.

She was born on January 23, 1971 in Burlington, VT, daughter to John Van Sleet Jr. and Verna Van Sleet (Austin).

Nancy is survived by the love of her life of over 35 years, Scott Rochefort, her father John Van Sleet Jr. (JoAnn Van Sleet), her brother Paul Van Sleet and her Aunt Diane Barber (Al Barber). She also leaves behind her 3 children who were her whole world; Barbara Van Sleet (Anthony Woods), Jason Rochefort (Leah Rochefort) and Steven Rochefort (Alyson Rochefort). In addition, she is survived by her four amazing grandchildren whom she loved with all of her heart and who will miss their special “Grammie” so much; Colby, Payton, Tyler and Everly. She will also be missed by her three fur babies; Hershey, Casey and Milo; and so many cousins and friends that were family to her.

Nancy was predeceased by her mom; Verna Van Sleet (Austin), her Grandma Rose and her mother and father-in-law Rochefort.

Nancy was a bright light for so many people. She had the special ability to light up any room she walked into with her shining smile and caring spirit. She radiated with kindness; always thinking of other people. Nancy spent lots of time knitting, crocheting and crafting. She was extremely talented and loved passing time with these activities and giving them to people she loved. She also loved going to the races with Scott and cherished her racing family so much. Nancy was brave and a true warrior her whole life and especially the last few years during her battle with cancer. She was the glue that held her family together, the perfect mix of spicy and sweet. She will be missed every single day by so many people who were lucky to know her.

A celebration of life in Nancy’s honor will be held on October 15th, 2022, from 2:30pm - 4:30pm, at the Eagles Club in Milton, 42 Centre Drive, Milton, VT, 05468.
