SOUTH POMFRET — A memorial service for Josephine K. Brayton of South Pomfret, will be held at 11 a.m. on Saturday, May 2 at the Pomfret Town Hall.
Jo died on March 30 at age 93 after a brief illness. She was the oldest citizen of Pomfret.
A transplanted “flatlander” from Massachusetts, Jo loved Vermont. After years of ever-longer vacations, Jo and her husband, Lincoln, moved permanently to Pomfret in the 1990s. They spent countless happy days walking Vermont’s trails and backroads. After Lincoln’s death in 2002, Jo continued living in her own home until the week before she passed away.
Jo leaves her son Stephen and his wife, Lisa, of Dedham, Mass., and her son Nathanael, also of Dedham. She also leaves her good friends and travel companions, Annie Hastings and Sue Cole, both of Woodstock.
