Matilda (Tillie) Pudvah, 96, of North Troy, passed away peacefully in Newport on November 22, 2020.

She was born on June 3, 1924 in South Burlington, VT, the daughter of the late Fred Gosley and Lillian (Jesmine) Gosley. On October 26, 1940 she married Howard Pudvah, who predeceased her in 1986.

Tillie loved doing puzzles, going to bingo, and playing cards. She loved cooking; she was famous for making the best pies around. She lovingly made pies and donated them to her church bingo. She also enjoyed crocheting. In later years her grandson Adam got her interested in the Boston Red Sox. She made several trips to Fenway. On May 1, 2011, at the age of 86, she was voted fan of the year on Vermont Day where she met Governor Peter Shumlin and saw Adam throw out the first pitch. She very seldom missed a game and many late nights she could be heard cheering them on.

Her greatest joy was being with her family and she looked forward to holiday gatherings. Tillie will always be remembered for her sense of humor and funny stories.

Tillie is survived by three daughters: Nancy Baker (David) of Derby, Cherie Descheneau (Doug) of Alaska, Tammy Desautels (Rene) of North Troy. Seven grandchildren: Michelle Gosselin (Mike), Matthew Poutre (Jenna), Marc Poutre, Christoper Descheneau (April), Jeremy Descheneau (Tina), Adam Desautels (Amy), Lynn King (Christoper). Twelve great-grandchildren: Chase and Faith Gosselin, Jaida and Henry Poutre, Aaliyah and Kloey Descheneau, Wyatt and Ryder Descheneau, Emma and Gavin King, Gianna and Elliott Desautels.

She was predeceased by her husband, Howard; infant twin daughters; siblings Wilfred Gosley, Virginia Domina, Mary Santaw, Evelyn Hom, sons-in law, Henry Poutre, Dayton Baker, Hector Descheneau, Jr, and a special "grandson" Rick Besaw, and granddaughter Katie Descheneau.

There will be a graveside service in the spring and a celebration of Tillie's life after the service.

My Mom and I and Aunt Rita would like to extend our deepest condolences to Tammy and her entire family during this difficult time. It was such a pleasure visiting with Aunt Matilda and you this past summer in North Troy even if only for a short time. Loved going down memory lane. She seemed like a very special lady.. Who would have guessed that long lost relatives from the past would show up on your doorstep asking to visit with Matilda. You welcomed us in and I thank you. I am attaching a photo of that great visit. Stay strong and always remember "wherever a beautiful soul has been there is a trail of beautiful memories". Love to you all from Yvonne Domina Woodward, Velma Ronfeldt, Rita Domina Tipper.
