Obituary of Denise Anne Lavigne


Milton - Denise Anne Lavigne, 64, died peacefully on Saturday August 29, 2020 at her home, surrounded by her loving family.

She graduated from Mt. Mansfield Union High School and attended nursing school at UVM.

On August 12, 1978, she married the love of her life, Glenn E. Lavigne at St. Joseph's Catholic Church in Burlington. They eventually settled in Milton where they raised their sons Forrester and Adam.

Throughout her life Denise worked as a nurse's aide, school cafeteria worker, and finally as secretary of St. Ann's Church for over a decade.

She coordinated numerous church events, sang in the St. Ann's Choir, was a member of the Cemetery Committee, and participated extensively in the church food shelf. She was also an active member of the Ladies of Isabelle, the Ladies of St. Ann's and the Cancer Survivors Network.

Denise enjoyed many hobbies throughout her life including sewing, quilting, cake decorating, and traveling with family. She loved making cards, catechism kits, and sharing ideas with her "Stampin'-Up" group. Denise also had a passion for gardening, cooking, tracing family genealogy, and, whenever possible, visiting the ocean.

In addition to her husband Glenn, she is survived by her sons Forrester of Milton and Adam of Grand Isle, and the family dog, Addie. By her brothers Wayne & wife Kim Deslaurier of Wilmington, N.C. and Craig & wife Muffy Deslaurier of So. Burlington and her sisters Michele & husband Britt Cummings of Oro, AZ and Linda & husband Leon Corse of Whitingham, VT and by many nieces and nephews.
