Lorraine “Clara” Russell, 88, of Charlotte


CHARLOTTE — Lorraine “Clara” Russel, 88, of Charlotte, Vt., took God’s path on Feb. 6, 2023, with her beloved dog Paco by her side.

She is predeceased by her parents, Eugene and Clara Gilbert, and sister, Rita Gilbert. She is survived by many loving individuals.

She graduated from Taunton High School in Taunton, Mass., in 1952 and later settled in Vermont. Lorraine loved to drive, to go to lawn sales, to eat out at different restaurants, and her Monday munch at Charlotte Senior Center with her friends.

She had a deep love for animals and Paco, “Your Highness,” was her pride and joy.

Lorraine owned the Hound’s Tooth in Vergennes, Vt., where everyone had good fun — great music and lasting friends, including her dear friend Priscilla “Sill” Mayo.

She lived a full and vibrant life with more friends than anyone could count. She always had the brightest smile.

A celebration of life will be held Saturday, March 18, from 1 to 4 p.m., at the American Legion in Vergennes.

In lieu of flowers please consider donations to Homeward Bound — Addison County’s Humane Society.◊
