NORTH HARTLAND — Janice Mary Goodridge Curtis, 83, died Nov. 8 at her home. Janice will be cremated and her remains will be buried beside her husband in the Old Protestant Cemetery, Island Pond, in the spring.
She was born in Barre on Oct. 21, 1930; one of three children of Romaine and Lillian (Griffith) Goodridge.
Janice enjoyed the simple pleasures of living.
She married Clarence E. Curtis of Island Pond in 1950 and they raised four children together. She was an avid reader and happy to have gotten her GED after seeing her own children through high school. She was employed as a store clerk, usually in ladies apparel, in several of the local department stores through her working years, developing many friendships with co-workers. She enjoyed time spent at “See-More-Vu,” a camp on Lake Seymour, which her husband’s parents and family build in 1950.
Recently, she spent many happy hours with friends at the Bugbee Center. Janice liked to travel and see new things. She was a member of the North Hartland Community Church, but beyond that she firmly believed in the person, life and work of her Savior, Jesus Christ.
She is survived by her four children; John of Fairbanks, Ala. Eugene of North Hartland, Cindy Labine of West Canaan, N.H., Wendy Brothers of Ascutney; 14 grandchildren; and 15 great-grandchildren.
