Wendy Lee Eramo

Wendy Lee Eramo was born on May 7, 1939, in Malden, MA, to Florence Lavinia MacCaughey. Wendy Eramo passed away in her sleep at her home in Granville, VT, on the evening of March 4, 2014. She is survived by her children, Michael Eramo and his wife Diane of Granville, Elaine Eramo of Warren and Lee Eramo and her fiancé Terry Brouillard of Brandon; her grandchildren, Mandy, Matthew and Mitchell Eramo, Wendy, Adam and Thomas Fuller, Harlie Wimble, Leslie Eramo and Kris Williams; great-grandchildren, Noah, Garrett, Annalisa, Jayden, Ryan, Nicholas and Olivia; siblings, Harold MacCaughey and Roberta Theriault; and family friend, Patricia Fazio. She is predeceased by her husband, Edward Eramo.

She was a beloved grandmother and great-grandmother known for her devotion to her community through service as Granville's town clerk for over a decade, active participation in her local church and her commitment to land conservation. An avid cook, cross-country skier and gardener, it was seldom that she could not be seen smiling and was always sure to live up to her high school title as Class Chatterbox. She married Edward G. Eramo Jr. from the neighboring town of Stoneham, MA, in 1957.

They lived happily in Wakefield, MA, raising their three children for 22 years while renovating the farmhouse on Puddledock Road in Granville where they would move to live full time in 1981. Their children soon followed them north, also settling in the area. Wendy could often be heard saying how lucky she felt to be surrounded by her family and to have her grandchildren so close. She loved to golf, travel and take her dogs for long walks. She could be regularly found laughing, singing with her church choir and making pizza on Friday nights, which was always a sure-fire draw for her grandchildren. So much so, that it was not uncommon when her grandchildren were teenagers for them to refuse to schedule plans with friends on a Friday night, as missing Pizza Night at grama's was too high a price to pay for mere socializing.

Wendy's house was always open to family and friends, whether traveling or just being in the neighborhood for a meal, for a day, or for a long weekend of outdoor adventure. She loved classical music, VPR, hockey and good coffee. An open memorial service will be held on Saturday, March 15, 2014, at 1:30 p.m. at Hancock-Granville Community Church, located at 1097 VT Route 100 in Hancock, VT.

As per Wendy's wishes, in lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Hancock-Granville Community Church, C/O Reverend Wayne Holsman, P.O. Box 45, Hancock, VT 05748.
