NORTH TROY, VT— Noella Vivian (Audet) Berthiaume, 71, passed away on July 27, 2020 surrounded by her husband, sons, and the incredible staff at the Bel-Aire Nursing Home in Newport, VT. She was held tightly in the hearts of her family, after a hard-fought battle with brain cancer.

Noella was born October 29, 1948, in Westfield, VT, the daughter of Maurice and Claire Audet. Born on a dairy farm as a first generation Vermonter she was the eldest in her family and with that birth order came the responsibilities for supporting her parents both on the farm and with helping her family. Although she learned to successfully navigate a new culture and language, she continued to maintain her historical roots and conversational French when speaking with her parents and numerous relatives still living in Quebec. Her childhood shaped the hard work ethic and loyalty to family that came to define who Noella was to those that knew and loved her.

Living simply, Noella spent her life living along the Canadian border and the province of Quebec in the towns of Westfield, Troy, and ultimately in North Troy. It was in the Village of North Troy where she married the love of her life Richard Berthiaume on June 19, 1971 where they raised their family and lived out their lives together.

For many years, Noella was member of the Jay Peak Post #28 American Legion Auxiliary and parishioner at the St. Vincent de Paul Catholic Church, which was right across the street from her home. Noella and Richard formed many important connections with community life via the legion and the church.

Playing bingo brought much joy to Noella... and very little money. Although her family would always enjoy hearing stories about a significant bingo win or good gossip, Noella simply enjoyed the early evening social outing with friends and family members that also enjoyed going out for bingo.

A large part of Noella’s work life was spent as a production line worker at Columbia Forest Products. She really enjoyed working at the mill as evidenced by her hour long early arrival to get to work so that she could visit with other friends and co-workers. You would find her enjoying the friendly banter exchanges amongst her co-workers. They would pick on her and she on them.

After 28 years of service, she retired from Columbia Forest Products. She continued to work part-time at the Orleans/Essex’s Visiting Nurse Association, a different job from her many years of working in a mill. She enjoyed this new position working and supporting and taking care of clients within her community.

Noella loved her family and cherished her grandchildren. Stories of her grandchildren brought joy to her heart and an inevitable smile to her face. She was always eager to talk about her grandkids as repeating those stories allowed her to keep them close by. She will certainly be missed by them and her family both near and far.

Noella is survived by her beloved husband of 49 years, Richard Berthiaume; her son Jean Berthiaume, his partner Ken Reissig and grandson Kayden, of Waitsfield, VT; her son Robert Berthiaume, his wife Renee Berthiaume and her grandson Kaeleb Berthiaume and granddaughter Ella Berthiaume of Newport VT; her son Denis Berthiaume, her granddaughter Gabrielle Berthiaume, and grandsons Xander and Ayson Berthiaume of Colchester, VT.

She is also survived by her brother, Roger Audet and his wife Rita Audet, of Basco, FL; sister Diane Roberts and husband Andre Roberts of Troy, VT; sister Carmen Bouchard and husband Jacques Bouchard of Troy, VT; brother Rejean Audet and wife Rebecca Audet of New Castle, NH and several nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her parents Maurice and Claire Audet.

There will be no calling hours or funeral services. A celebration of her life will be held at a later time.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions in Noella’s name can be made to The Halo Foundation 1073 Upper Quarry Rd. Newport, VT 05855. This organization financially helps families in Orleans County that are dealing with cancer.

A special thank you to the staff at Bel-Aire Nursing Home and the Orleans-Essex Visiting Nurse Association for providing professional, kind and compassionate care in her time of need.

Oh my what a shock to hear off Noella's passing. we worked nights together many years at the mill. I remember once I still laugh about it we were working together when I felt I was not being helped looked over and Noella was walking away from her station bends over and picks up something and puts in her month she had sneezed and her teeth blew out across the floor she picked them up wiped them a little on her pants and popped back in her mouth I took one look at her and started laughing so hard could not stop and still think to about it today. Sorry Noella it is a good story. Rich I know you well miss her, boys Jean, Robert and Denis you had a good Mom and i am sure she spoiled those grandkids. Dave and I express our condolences.

I spent a lot of time with uncle Richard and Aunt Noella when I was younger. Aunt Noella introduced me to fluffanutters which I thought was amazing! As a child!! She also pulled my first tooth! She wanted to feel “how loose” it was and out it came! I have vivid memories of spending time riding bikes at the church parking lot and hanging out on the front porch with Jean, Robert and Denis.
