Obituary for Pauline A. Doucet

North Hero – Pauline A. “Polly” (Bishop) Doucet passed away Monday, April 28, 2014, with family members at her side. Born in Potsdam, NY on November 10, 1925, she was the daughter of the late, William and Nina (Fitzgibbons) Wright. Polly was 88 years old. In 1957, she moved to Rutland, VT, where she was employed at Vermont Transit until 1961, when she and her husband Clarence F. Bishop, moved to South Burlington. There she raised 2 daughters, Bonita A. Bishop-Rimmer who predeceased her on May 1, 2000 and Susan E. (Bishop) Lawrence.
