In Memoriam Barbara G. Poplawski 8/23/2019  
Barbara Pauline Poplawski MENDON - Barbara Pauline Poplawski, 83, of Mendon, died peacefully at home Friday morning, Aug. 23, 2019, surrounded by her loving family. She was born on June 2, 1936, in Belleville, NJ, the daughter of Matthew and Mary (Gasprack) Grum, one of 11 children. Barbara graduated from Nutley High School in 1954 and Vermont College in Montpelier in 1956. She began her career at Hoffman Laroche Pharmaceutial Co., but was soon swept off her feet by Eugene John Poplawski of North Arlington, New Jersey, during a ski vacation. Sharing a love of tennis and skiing and the Catholic Church, they were united in matrimony on May 6, 1961. Barbara and Gene soon moved to Vermont to raise their family in the beautiful Green Mountains. Blessed with five children - Donna, Debra, Denise, Deonne and Eugene John "E.J." Jr. - Barbara found her hands full managing a lively household. Years later, she and Gene owned and operated Pop's Place Snack Bar and Vermont Canvas Products in Rutland for many years. Barbara was a member of Christ the King Catholic Church, an active PTO member at her children's school, a member of the Sherburne Woman's Club and a Girl Scout leader for many years. Barbara and her husband wintered in St. Petersburg, FL, over the past 20 years, where she and Gene danced the polka along with beloved friends at the Polish American Club. Barbara always cared for others, and volunteered at the Ronald McDonald House. She was known by so many for her loving and welcoming disposition. We called her Barbara, Barb, Barbie, Bobby, Mom, Babci, Aunt Barb, Mrs. Pop & Mrs. P. Everyone felt welcomed into her home, received a big hug and left well-fed. She enjoyed dancing, playing tennis, skiing, sewing, baking and knitting and was a talented watercolor artist, but her biggest passion was her family. She not only taught her children the joys of baking, crafting and outdoor play, but cast on the positive attitude that they could do anything they wanted to do. Barbara most enjoyed time with her family on Lake George, well-fought games of Skip-Bo and Scrabble, and family meals ... which always required a group photo. Barbara is survived by her beloved husband, Gene Poplawski, of Mendon, and the children she adored: Donna Poplawski Kreie, of Flower Mound, TX; Debra Poplawski Wilson and husband George, of Rutland; Denise Poplawski Wall and husband Bill, of Andover, MA; Deonne Poplawski Myrick and husband Andrew, of Randolph; Eugene John "E.J." Poplawski Jr. and wife Heather, of Salt Lake City, UT; and Karen Stewart Terry and husband David, of Islip, NY. Thirteen grandchildren loved their Babci: Jessica McCarte, Aniela Kreie, Tamra Jaurigue, Alyssa, Nicholas, Ryan and Christopher Wall, Olivia, Lilly, Calvin and Thaddeus Myrick, Lia and Bode Poplawski. Barbara is also survived by one sister, Bernice Grum, of Dunedin, FL, several loved sisters-in-law and many nieces and nephews who enriched her life. She was predeceased by nine brothers and sisters and by her granddaughter, Madison "Madi" Claire Jaurigue. A memorial and funeral Mass will be celebrated at 10 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 7, 2019, at Christ the King Church in Rutland, VT A luncheon and Celebration of Life will follow at the Summit Lodge, Killington, VT.

In Memoriam Frederica F. Griffin 8/11/2019  
PENACOOK - Fredrica Kay (Flynn) Griffin, 73, a longtime resident of Raymond, passed away Sunday, Aug. 11, 2019, in Concord Regional VNA Hospice House. She determinedly spent most of her final days at her home in Penacook - the home she purchased in order to be closer to her husband who resided at the New Hampshire Veterans Home in Tilton.

Fredrica, or "Ric" as she preferred, was born in 1946 and grew up in the town of Lancaster. She met her future husband, Clifford Griffin, in grade school and the two of them attended the same local schools until they became high school sweethearts. She continued her education at Vermont College where she earned an associate degree before marrying her "Cliff", "Cliff-y", "Cliff-o", a marriage that would last 50 years before Cliff's passing in May of 2016.

She was well known in the town of Raymond, having worked in the town school system for 32 years as an administrative assistant.

Ric had many interests and hobbies, but her greatest joy was to be among her family as wife, mother, sister, and grandmother. She was one of the four "Flynn Girls" sisters of Lancaster, including the late Patricia "Pat" Pelletier of Georgetown, Mass., Maureen "Reen" Lacasse of Old Lyme, Conn., and Sharon Turmelle of Concord.

Family members include her four children, Anderson Griffin (partner Bernie) of Fryeburg, Maine, Peter (wife Heather) Griffin of Londonderry, Jodi Griffin (husband Chad) Berghoefer of Minnesota, and Jay (wife Katie) Griffin of Bow; her six beloved grandchildren, Megan, Jacobus, Kaylin, Braeden, Ava, and Lydia; and one great-grandchild, Flynn.

Ric was greatly loved by family and friends and will be sorely missed. She always had an abundance of personality, wit and attitude, although you might have missed it unless you read between her lines, or her fingers.


SERVICES: A graveside service is planned for Friday, Aug. 16, at 12:30 p.m. in the New Hampshire State Veterans Cemetery, 110 Daniel Webster Highway, Boscawen, followed by a luncheon at Alan's Restaurant in Boscawen. The family welcomes flowers, which may be delivered to the cemetery for services.

In Memoriam Roger C. Gilman 8/15/2019  
Windsor, VT- Roger Clyde Gilman, 84, died Thursday, August 15, at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center in Lebanon, NH surrounded by his loving family.
Roger was born in East Calais, Vermont October 18, 1934 to John Clyde and Inez Orr Gilman. He graduated from Lyndon Institute in Lyndon, where he excelled in football, basketball and track, and was class president for three years. Roger received a scholarship to Middlebury College and eventually transferred to Norwich University to complete a degree in 1958. At Norwich, he was on the Dean's List and was elected to the national honorary civil engineering fraternity, Chi Epsilon. He married Shirley Ann Jewett of Waterbury January 19, 1957.
Roger held a lifelong interest in both colleges and was an active alumnus. He and Shirley were members of the Partridge Society and Norwich and were regular attendees of its related functions. They were seasons passholders of the Norwich men's ice hockey team and enjoyed Norwich - Middlebury football matches.
While a student at Norwich, Roger interned with the Vermont highway department and developed a keen interest in improving the state highway system. He worked for the state following graduation and in 1964 he was hired by Oliver "Chick" Miller, owner of Miller Construction. He would remain with the company for 50 years, serving as its president since 1982. Roger's imprint is on hundreds of bridges, highways and projects across the state.
Throughout his career, Roger balanced his busy work life with service to his community and profession. For 14 years, while his five daughters attended schools in Windsor, he served on the school board. He was a longtime member of the Windsor Rotary Club and was past president and a Paul Harris Fellow. He served on the planning board and various ad-hoc committees focused on reinventing Windsor's economy following the closure of the Goodyear and Cone Blanchard plants. He was past president of the Vermont Society of Engineers and attended many national engineering conferences. He was a member of the Wyoming Lodge of the Free Masons and the Mount Sinai Shrine.
He was a member of the Old South Church for nearly 55 years and for many years was a member of John P. Larkin Country Club.
Throughout his life in Windsor, Roger was a fixture at community events and was a strong supporter of Windsor athletics. He attended as many of his daughters' field hockey, track, softball, basketball and ski meets as he possibly could; his interest however was not limited to his own children's activities. The community recognized Roger's contribution in an eloquent town report dedication in 2014. It was written that "less obvious, and certainly more difficult to detail and describe, is the advice he has quietly and consistently provided to promote responsible actions in town affairs; his regular and ongoing presence at school athletic events, lending support to generations of Green and Gold athletes; the time he has spent guiding and mentoring area contractors and other members of the business community; and the many generous donations in kind of equipment and materials made by Roger's company, Miller Construction, to advance school and town interests."
Above all, he was a man of integrity and was well-respected across the state of Vermont. When Hurricane Irene devastated the state in 2011, Roger was called upon often and he worked tirelessly to help rebuild damaged roads and bridges. He was always at-the-ready to help his beloved community and state. He truly had passion for his work and for the many longtime employees of Miller Construction whom he treated with enormous respect and care.
Roger is survived by his devoted wife of 62 years, Shirley, who lovingly cared for him in the past year as his health declined, and children, Jody-Ann Gilman and Sara Swasey of Windsor, Jane Hoisington and her husband, Emerson, of Brownsville, Mary Dennis and her husband, Carl, of Jericho, Susan DuPlessis and her fiancée, Michael DiPhilippo of Newry, ME, grandchildren Ahren Erickson, Kirk Erickson and Leigh Erickson, Ian Dennis and Lauren Dennis, Margaret Hoisington and Andrea Hoisington, and great-grandchildren, Adalie, Marley and Maya Erickson. He was preceded in death by his father, mother and brother, a niece and many uncles and aunts.
A memorial service will be held Saturday, August 24 at 1pm, at Old South Congregational Church UCC in Windsor.Funeral arrangements are with Knight Funeral Home in Windsor, VT. Condolences may be expressed to Roger's Family in an online guestbook at In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to Ascutney Outdoors, PO Box 101, Brownsville, VT 05037, or the Windsor Area Booster Club, 19 Ascutney Street, Windsor VT 05089.
