SHARON S. SARONSON

MIDDLEBURY — Sharon S. Saronson, née Allbee, passed away peacefully at her home on Saturday, April 16, 2022, aged 78. Born in Davenport, Iowa, in 1943, Sharon later came East to study costume design at the City University of New York’s Brooklyn College campus, where she earned a Master of Fine Arts degree. She settled in Brooklyn with her husband and sons and taught in the New York City Public Schools for over 30 years.

After spending summers at Lake Dunmore in the family home Sharon developed a deep and abiding love for Vermont and she retired full time to Salisbury in 2001, where she took up quilting and gardening. For many years she sang with and made costumes for the Maiden Vermont Women’s Barbershop Chorus. She also served weekly as a volunteer at Porter Hospital in Middlebury.

Sharon was predeceased by her parents, Darrell and Alice Allbee. She is survived by her family: husband Paul; two sons, Matthew and his wife Conchita and Robert and his wife Stephanie; grandchildren Maxwell, Zachary, and a third expected on Sharon’s birthday in September. Sharon is also survived by her sister Jeanne and her husband, Harmon Hosch and her brother David and his wife Pat Allbee, as well a niece, Allison, and nephew, Max.

Services were held at 11 a.m. on Monday, April 25, at the Congregational Church of Middlebury, at 2 Main Street in Middlebury. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Sharon’s memory to the Middlebury Congregational Church’s Community Supper Program or to Homeward Bound, Addison County’s Humane Society.◊
