In Memoriam Virginia Cain 10/10/2018  
Sister Virginia Cain

- - Sister Virginia Cain, RSM, (Sr. Mary Virginia), 90, of the Sisters of Mercy Northeast Community, Vermont, died at Our Lady of Providence Residence in Winooski, VT on Wednesday, October 10, 2018.

Baptized Mary Margaret Cain, Sr. Virginia was born in Burlington, VT on August 11, 1928, the daughter of Mary Elizabeth "Bess" (Carpenter) and Leo Andrew Cain. She received her early education at Mount Saint Mary Academy, Burlington, VT. She earned a B.A Degree in English from Trinity College, Burlington, VT, a Master's Degree in Sociology from St. Michael's College, Winooski, VT, and her degree as a Registered Nurse from Vermont College/Norwich University.

Sr. Virginia grew up across the street from Mount Saint Mary's Convent and when she entered the community she "just walked across Mansfield Avenue," as she had done her prior twelve years of schooling. She entered the Sisters of Mercy on August 15, 1946 and professed her vows on August 25, 1949.

Sr. Virginia served in diverse ministries. She taught in elementary and high schools throughout Vermont in Burlington, Montpelier, and Middlebury. She also taught for twelve plus years at Saint Monica School and Marian High School in Barre. She then served for more than two decades as a nurse, caring for the elderly and sick sisters at Mount Saint Mary and visiting nursing homes and area hospitals. She spent two special years as a visiting nurse in Selma, Alabama, working with people living in poverty and seeing to their needs.

Throughout her seventy-two years of religious life, Sister Virginia was also involved in Mercy-sponsored ministries, serving on the Board of Trinity College and volunteering at the Institute for Spiritual Development. With other Sisters and Mercy Associates, she opened the "Warde Robe," a thrift shop on North Street. Sister was a volunteer in the Mentoring Program of Mercy Connections, journeying with women as they transitioned from incarceration back into the community. Sister Virginia derived much joy in ministering at Marycrest, the former Mercy summer camp for girls where she spent twenty-seven summers, nine of which she served as Camp Director, enjoying the lively campers, working with staff and college students who served as camp counselors, and forming life-long friendships, in particular, her close friend, Joan Mussmacher.

As a member of the Vermont Mercy Leadership Team, she oversaw justice work and spent time in Jamaica and Haiti where she visited homes, hospitals and orphanages, helping wherever she could. She was a Red Cross volunteer, and a board member at the Chittenden Food Shelf.

She is survived by her brother, Francis Cain and his wife, Mary Jane, many nieces, nephews, grandnieces, grandnephews and great grandnieces and grandnephews, and by her sisters in religion, the Sisters of Mercy. She was predeceased by her parents Mary Elizabeth (Carpenter) and Leo Andrew Cain; her brothers and sisters-in-law, R. Nolan Cain, MD and Mary, and L. John Cain Esq. and Polly and Erika; her nephews, Stephen Cain and John P. Cain.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at Mt. St. Mary Convent, 100 Mansfield Ave., Burlington, VT on Saturday, October 20, 2018 at 11:00 AM. There will be visiting hours at Mount Saint Mary from 4:00 to 7:00 PM, with a prayer service at 6:00 PM on Friday, October 19, 2018.

In Memoriam Patricia D. Seivwright 9/8/2018  
Montpelier, VT

Patricia (Pat) D. Seivwright died suddenly September 8, 2018. She was the daughter of Dale Donahue and Pearl Smith. She grew up in Montpelier with a brief period in St. Petersburg, Florida. After finishing high school in Montpelier, she attended Vermont College and the Fay School in Boston.



As a young woman, she worked as a secretary in the law department of National Life. She volunteered her services generously working in the Montpelier Red Cross office, on the successful gubernatorial campaign of Dean Davis, Bethany Church's soup kitchen and as a book repairer at the Kellogg Hubbard Library.



She married Harry Seivwright in 1947 and spent fifty wonderful years together until his passing in 1997. They had a second house in Grand Isle built in 1972 and moved there full time in the early 1980's after Harry's retirement. Winters were spent enjoying Sanibel Island Florida. Their grandchildren all learned to swim there during vacation breaks. She returned to Montpelier after Harry's death and became a resident in the independent living section of Westview Meadows. Pat, as a young girl, developed a love for the outdoors from her father. She knew the names of many types of birds and trees. She valued the protection of our natural world and cherished all creatures great and small. She could be seen liberating ladybugs stuck on the wrong side of a window. Before Grand Isle, the family spent many years camping with friends at Groton State Forest as well as other sites in New England, New York and the maritime provinces. She joined Harry and the "Montpelier Navy" sailing off the southern New England coast.



Pat had an artistic flair as shown in the many paintings she did throughout her life. She exhibited regularly at the Grand Isle Art Show and had pictures shown at UVM's Fleming Museum.



Pat was an avid reader and remembers walking to the Kellogg Hubbard Library at the ripe age of five. Her belief in the importance of public libraries continued to be shown by her volunteer work there up until her death. She was well read and up on current events. She embraced new technology and would pull up the latest video of her new great granddaughter on her IPad or check out the latest trade on her favorite baseball team, the Red Sox. Her generous spirit was shown when she started following the Sox as a way to give a new Westview resident someone to share his excitement of the team. She became a close follower of the team from spring training to season's end. For over seventy years she enjoyed playing bridge with her many friends. She was a very active woman into her nineties and could be seen walking in Montpelier or playing bocce.



She was such an example of quiet caring and love for the people in her life. The lives of the people she touched are better for her presence. She will continue to be remembered for her gift to us.



Survivors include her son, George Seivwright and his wife Maureen of Grand Isle; grandchildren, Joshua Seivwright of Jeffersonville, VT, Katherine Cole and her husband Ben of Bradford, and Carly Lagasse of Montpelier; and one great granddaughter, Wren Cole.



A memorial service will be held 11:00 am on Friday, September 21, 2018 at the Bethany Church on Main Street in Montpelier.



Memorial contributions may be made to the Kellogg Hubbard Library, 135 Main Street, Montpelier, VT 05602 or to the Bethany Bowl Soup Kitchen, 115 Main Street, Montpelier, VT

In Memoriam Patrick G. Skelly 8/18/2018  
Word has been received that Patrick Grier Skelly of Pocasset, 83, died August 18 in Falmouth from complications of Alzheimer's disease and a staph infection.
The son of Walter J. Skelly and Evelyn V. Skelly, he was born in Brooklyn, New York. During his childhood, his father was in the Army and took the family to live in Italy at the end of World War II because he was active in the re-normalization of the area near Venice, Gourizia, and the northeastern region of Italy.
They lived on the Lido in Venice and, in order to get to school, he and his sister, Lois, were transported in a vaporetto, or waterbus. The children met many chaplains who remained lifelong friends.
When he returned to the US, Mr. Skelly also served in the Army; his service was during the Korean War and he was primarily stationed in Alabama at the space station there.
Later, Mr. Skelly earned a bachelor of arts degree from St. Mary's College in Georgia, and went on to a successful career in designing computers for major corporations.
After his retirement, he moved to Cape Cod in 1994 to make a home with Genevieve Kazdin, his partner and life companion.
By 2007, Mr. Skelly's involvement with veterans affairs was intensified and, at age 72, he applied to Norwich University for a master's degree in military history. He earned the degree in 2008. In his Capstone paper, "The Military Chaplaincy of the US Army, Focusing on World War II Chaplains in Combat," he gave an examination of what chaplains accomplish in their military roles.
He became historian for the 44th Division, delving into little-known details of the war experience, and hosted yearly reunions of veterans to meet and share the simple joy of talking with others who remembered.
In addition to Ms. Kazdin, Mr. Skelly leaves his daughter, Kathleen Skelly Eby and her husband, Greg Eby; his son, Brian Skelly, and his wife, Betty Skelly; and three grandchildren.
He was predeceased in 2005 by his sister.
A memorial service will be announced at a later time.
