Beverly Douglas Latreille, 92, of Monkton

MONKTON — It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our cherished mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and great-great-grandmother on Aug. 13, 2022. Beverly was born June 29, 1930. She was the strongest, fiercest woman we have ever known. Below, per her request is her self-written obituary:

I have lived a long, productive, and happy life. Now it is time to say goodbye.

I was the daughter of the late C.A. (Sol) Douglas and the late Mildred (Little) Douglas. I was born in North Ferrisburgh Hollow in 1930. I went to Dartt school in Monkton and graduated from Vergennes High in 1948. While working at Vergennes National Bank, I met Leonard Latreille. We were married 60-plus years.

To brag a bit, I helped work the Frog Hollow Farm while raising babies and drove a school bus for summer school. After the kids left home, we took in foster kids for a couple of years. I worked the snack bar at Shelburne Museum until I retired.

We had nine wonderful kids. They are Paul (Sheryl) Latreille of Williston, Gisele Latreille of Ripton, Jackie (Dan) Henry of Richford, Estelle (Tom) Genest of Hardwick, Michel “Mike” (Irene) Latreille of Monkton, Samuel (Tammy) Latreille of Ferrisburgh, Pricilla Latreille (Doug’s wife) of Bridport and Jill Latreille (Raymond’s wife) of Monkton. I was predeceased by our beloved sons Douglas and Raymond, beloved daughter Claudette and her husband Charlie Foote.

I want to bestow all my love and thanks to each and every one for all the love and care you have given to me and dad over the years. It was appreciated and returned. Extra special thanks to Claudette for doctoring and trips to the hospital etc. Thank you! Raymond for all the checks to see if I’m ok.

There are 20 grandchildren, 30 great-grandchildren and eight great-great-grandchildren

I was preceded by my husband, our infant son, an infant grandson, and two great-granddaughters; and by my brother Carroll Little Douglas, 1982, in Texas and his two sons.

Besides my children, grand- and great-grandchildren I leave behind my sister Carol Lettieri and her two children, also Mark Douglas and his son.

There will be a joint service for Raymond and Beverly Latreille on Saturday, Aug. 20, at 2 p.m., at the Monkton Friends Methodist Church, 77 Monkton Ridge, Monkton Vt. Reception immediately following. ◊
