Marlene Theresa Hoag, 83, of Bristol


BRISTOL — Marlene Theresa Hoag passed away surrounded by love and family on Aug. 7 after a long battle with Louie Body Dementia.

Marlene was born Oct. 11, 1938, in Hinesburg, the daughter of Fred and Marion (Curavoo) Alger.

She married Walter J. Hoag in Sept. 1957. She moved to the family farm in Monkton. Then in 1999, she moved to Essex, and in her final years she lived in Vergennes and Bristol.

She became a mother, housewife, farmer and film librarian at UVMMC, and she equally enjoyed each role in her life.

She is survived by her five children: Robin Steady (Tom Jerome), Penny Cyr, Jim and Betty Hoag, Christine Hoag, and Jason and Jennifer Lyman; 14 grandchildren; ten great-grandchildren; her brother Ron and (Mitch) Alger; her sister Marsha Joe Blais; brothers and sisters-in-law; many nieces, nephews and cousins.

Marlene was predeceased by her husband Walter and longtime companion Mark Lyman; sons-in-law James Cyr and Randy Steady; her brother Arland, and her parents.

Special thanks to Kasie (Bingham) and Tim O’Toole for opening their home to our family and taking great care of Marlene for the last two years. Also to Tammie Booska and Project Independence for helping me keep her in our home.

A graveside service for family will be held 11 a.m. on Saturday, Aug. 27, at Monkton Ridge Cemetery, with a family potluck to follow.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Bristol Rescue Squad, PO Box 227, Bristol, VT 05443; Vergennes Rescue Squad, PO Box 11, Vergennes, VT 05491; and Addison County Home Health & Hospice, PO Box 754, Middlebury, VT 05753.
