  • Life Stories: Remembering Vermonters Who Died in 2023

    In Vermont, six degrees of separation is really more like one or two. Aside from the occasional annoyances of living in such a small, close-knit community — say, running into exes at the co-op — that unique interconnectedness is part of why so many of us choose to be here. Vermont is a place where one person can make a difference with their life — and leave a profound void when they die. We get to know our neighbors and share in their triumphs and tragedies. Seven Days has been highlighting some of those Vermonters since 2014 with a year-end package called "Life Stories." In it, we profile a handful of locals who died that year and made impacts, large and small, on those around them.

They would lose themselves in the process, surrounded by craft supplies and pencils strewn across the basement floor. As Jesse presented her creations, Joan lavished praise. "She was just the most encouraging [person]," Jesse, now a grade school teacher in Berkeley, Calif., recalled during a recent phone call with Seven Days.
