Obituary

Alice Leona (Reardon) Carpenter died July 26 at Craftsbury Community Care Center at age 93. She was born on March 8, 1927, to William and Leona (Whitcomb) Reardon of Bethlehem, NH. She grew up in Bethlehem and attended Bethlehem schools. She moved with her family during World War II to Springfield, Mass., where she graduated from Springfield High School of Commerce. The family returned to Bethlehem after the war and Alice worked at the Flume Reservation, where she met her future husband, Richard F. Carpenter Jr. They were married in October 1948, and lived in Portsmouth, NH, until 1953, when they moved with their two daughters to St. Johnsbury.

The family, including a son who was born in St. Johnsbury, was active in Grace United Methodist Church for many years. From 1968 to 1990 Alice worked as secretary to the superintendent of schools in St. Johnsbury. After her husband’s death in 1992 she worked as a volunteer for community organizations for many years, including the Fairbanks Museum, Northeastern Vermont Regional Hospital, and the St. Johnsbury History & Heritage Center. Throughout her life she enjoyed traveling with family and friends. In later years she got great pleasure from visits with great-grandchildren she hadn’t thought she’d live long enough to see: Adam, Adil, Arif and Siddiqah Maryem Alice Siddiqui, and Rose and Ruby Stein.

Alice was predeceased by her parents, her husband and her brother William Reardon Jr. She is survived by daughter Judy Carpenter and son-in-law Karl Stein of Greensboro Bend; daughter Jan Carpenter and her partner Bob Salesi of Penobscot, Maine; son Dave Carpenter and daughter-in-law Deana Whitehead of Grayslake, Illinois; grandchildren and spouses Leona and Hasan Siddiqui of Fenton, Michigan; Ben and Kelly Stein of Morrisville; Nate Torres of Kihei, Maui, Hawaii; Scott Carpenter of Grayslake, Illinois; Drew Carpenter and Kayleigh Ash of Redmond, Washington; sister-in-law Betty Reardon of Whitefield, NH; nephews Ken Reardon, Jim Reardon, and Steve Reardon of Bethlehem, NH, and Mike Reardon of Auburn, Maine, and their families; and very special cat, Frisky.

The family will hold a private celebration of her life. Memories and condolences may be shared by visiting awrfh.com. Donations in Alice’s memory may be given to the St. Johnsbury History & Heritage Center, 421 Summer St., St. Johnsbury, VT 05819, or to Craftsbury Community Care Center, 1784 East Craftsbury Road, Craftsbury, VT 05826.

Dear Dave, Judy and Jan,
On behalf of my Mom and our family, I want to extend our sadness and sympathy on your loss. Your Mom was such a great neighbor and friend to my mother; their world travels, church activities, bird watching, gardening, and just being there for each other. She truly enriched the lives of those around her.
Thinking of you all,
Sandy McCauley

Sandy, Thanks for this kind note. She was blessed during her long life to make really good friends, including your mom. She talked about their trips a lot. We're all thankful that the very end came relatively quickly and that we could all be with her for the final days. Dave

Judy, Jan and David - I worked with your dear mom many years in the St. Johnsbury School Superintendent's office and kept in touch over the years. She was a wonderful friend and co-worker, always upbeat and positive. She was very proud of you, her family, and I know you will all miss her terribly. She was truly special. My thoughts are with all of you at this very sad time.

Jane, Your note is most appreciated. Mom spoke very highly of you and was lucky to have you as a friend and co-worker. The school superintendent's crew was a special group for her. Thank you for your kind thoughts. Dave

Dear Judy, Janet, and David,
I am saddened to learn of your mom's passing. She was a wonderful neighbor, and it was an honor to help her and take care of Frisky when she needed me. My sincerest condolences to you and your families.

Barb, Thank you. She could not possibly have had a more thoughtful or helpful neighbor than you during that final period at the Colonial Apartments. We sure appreciated your kindness -- I know Mom did. Hope all is well with you. Dave

Dear Judy, Jan, and David,
Please accept our sincere sympathy on your mom’s passing. She was a great lady, and she and your dad were wonderful neighbors when they lived on Waterman Circle. Their presence at church in their many different capacities represented the very heart of what the Methodist Church was all about. I know that she was warmly greeted in Heaven by not only your dad but the many friends who went before her. She was truly a good and faithful servant. Thinking of you...
Jo-Ann (Sherrer) and David Reed
