Joyce Ilene Burbank, 88, passed away at Birchwood Terrace Healthcare in Burlington the evening of April 24, 2009. She was born February 20, 1921, in Cabot, VT, the daughter of the late Leo and Marion (Badger) Burbank. Joyce attended St. Johnsbury Academy and Santa Ana (CA) high schools, graduating in 1939.
Continuing to reside in Yorba Linda, California, until 1964, she returned to Vermont to care for her mother. As a member of the Waitsfield Federated Church she was active in many church functions which led to her love of quilt making.
Joyce is survived by her son, Charles L. Burbank and wife Debbie of Morrisville, a brother, Edwin Lester Burbank and wife Connie of Cape Cod, MA, and three grandchildren, Seth Burbank, Hannah Burbank and Emily Judd, and great-grandson Liam Marcus Burbank, as well as many nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by two sisters, Christine Hutchins and Dorothy Kenyon, and three brothers, Lee Allen Burbank, Charles Laurence Burbank and James Norris Burbank.
Her family also wishes to acknowledge the outstanding care and attention afforded Joyce during her stay at Birchwood Terrace. At Joyce's request there will be no services. The Holcomb-Des Groseilliers Funeral Home of Johnson is in charge of arrangements.
