Joyce Ann (Morin) Dupoise, 60, of Middlebury


MIDDLEBURY — Joyce Ann (Morin) Dupoise, age 60, passed away unexpectedly at her home in Middlebury on Friday, May 6, 2022.

Joyce was born the fifth of seven children to Rejean and Arlene (Whitney) Morin on Jan. 23, 1962. She attended Middlebury Union High School but ultimately received her GED from Vermont Adult Learning.

Joyce dedicated her life to the care of others. She was employed at the Counseling Service of Addison County, working with the developmentally disabled. She transitioned her employment from working in residential homes to opening her home to clients as a developmental home.

Joyce was passionate about her family and traveling. Her grandchildren and her beloved Ziggy were the light of her life. To meet her once was to become her friend and soon her family. Joyce loved meeting new people and was always talking to someone, stranger or not. She always tried to make others smile and have a good day.

She is survived by her loving life partner of 36 years, Craig P. Dupoise; twin daughters, Megan Dupoise-Chandler and family of Leicester, and Dannielle Dupoise and family of Brandon; four  brothers, Oral Morin, David Morin, Jan Morin and Robert “Bob” Morin; and her cherished grandchildren, Landon Popp and Idaylia and Chloe Dupoise-Chandler. Joyce was predeceased by her parents, brother Ricky Morin, sister Kathy Houle, cousin Nathan “Nate” Jackson and nephew Abraham “Abe” Seeley.

A celebration of life will be held at the Veterans of Foreign War on Exchange Street in Middlebury, Vt., on Sunday, May 15, at 1 p.m. She would want us to celebrate her life, not mourn her death, so that’s what we will do. Come celebrate with us and let’s remember all the good times we had with her.

Arrangements are under the direction of Miller & Ketcham Funeral Home in Brandon.◊
