Marion's four great-grandchildren, Rebecca and Katherine Ouellette, Yale Flanagan and Caleb Sanderson held a special place in her heart. Marion is also survived by Milton and Lucille Wing of Newport and Arline Wing of Lyndon. Marion was born in Island Pond, Aug. 2, 1908. She graduated from Brighton High School and Lyndon College, where she earned hear teaching degree. She taught in Plainfield, Marshfield and Derby Line prior to her marriage to Dale on Dec. 28, 1938. After her marriage, she devoted her life to her husband and subsequently her children. She and her husband purchased a home on Lake Street in Island Pond next to her parents, Myron and Annie (Norton) Waterman. Her sister, Gladys (Waterman) Lindsay and her brother, Darrell Waterman, who predeceased Marion, also lived on Lake Street. Thus, Marion spent most of her life on Lake Street surrounded by the love of family. In 1965, after raising her children, she returned to Lyndon College to earn her teaching recertification. She spent several years thereafter teaching remedial reading in Holland, Charleston and Island Pond, and later became a substitute teacher, before retiring in her 70s. Marion was always an active member of the First Congregational Church in Island Pond, where she taught Sunday school for many years, worked on church suppers and activities, and was a member of the Women's Fellowship. She was also a member of the Brighton Post 80 American Legion Auxiliary and the Random Post 2309 VFW Auxiliary. Marion was one of the original residents of the Brighton Senior Housing (Sunshine Manor), moving in the week it opened. She kept her lifelong view of the lake, enjoyed the camaraderie with the residents and townspeople, and made Sunrise Manor her adored second home for 19 years. She was treasurer for the Senior Center's social events for many years. Not until January 2001 did Marion leave Island Pond due to failing health, to reside at the assisted living facility at the Pines Health and Rehabilitation Center in Lyndon. Although she deeply missed Island Pond, she found the residents, staff and the hospice volunteers who visited with her at the Pines to be wonderful, caring people. Marion's first love was her family. Her children could not have had a more devoted and loving mother. Even when ill her grandchildren and great-grandchildren brought a sparkle to her life. She enjoyed life to the fullest and loved to strike up a conversation with people of all ages, particularly young people. Walking, even on the coldest of days, and riding her exercise bike were two of her fondest activities. She did this until the last few months of her long life. While living on Lake Street, Marion spent many hours with her children at the beach. She loved swimming and boating. She spent much time playing basketball and jumping rope with her grandchildren even though she was then a senior citizen. Marion was competitive - she loved a challenging game of croquet or cards. She spent many hours canning and freezing vegetables from her husband's beautiful and bountiful garden. She always enjoyed having her family and their friends to her house for one of her home-cooked meals. Marion could be seen driving her senior citizen friends, many younger than she, to medical appointments, the grocery store, church, or just for a ride. She was proud of her car and driving ability and taught her children and grandchildren how to drive. These are just a few of our many wonderful memories of Marion Wing. Her family and friends will greatly miss her.

, 54, of Lyndon, died at his home at 4:20 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 30, 2001, in the company of family and friends. He died from a fast-acting cancer that was discovered roughly four weeks ago. James Steven Gruber - known to his friends as Jimmy - was born March 28, 1947 in New York City, N.Y. He spent his early childhood in Watkins Glen, N.Y., before moving with his family to Groton in 1959, where his father worked with dairy farmers breeding Jersey and Holstein cows. Upon graduating from Groton High School in 1964, he spent time at the University of Vermont before enlisting in the U.S. Navy. He served on the aircraft carrier U.S.S. Oriskany, which was stationed in the South China Sea for a time during the Vietnam War. After being discharged, he spent time on the West Coast and did a stint mining coal in Colorado. In the early'70s he came back to Vermont, where he did a number of odd jobs. He was a motorcycle mechanic, and a granola maker at Hatch's Natural Food Store in St. Johnsbury, before enrolling at Lyndon State College. He graduated with a bachelor's degree in communications, helping along the way to set up the college's first television station. He lived in the Red House in Lyndon, where he met Janet Thorn. Together, they made a life and in 1984 had a son, Eli, who is currently a senior at Lyndon Institute. Jimmy made his living as a carpenter, working with builder Don Matthews. Among his friends he was known as a homebody, always quick to offer a welcome. He had a heart as big as his workman's hands and believed you should treat people the way you want them to treat you. To his family he was patient, gracious and solid as a rock. He liked to garden and listen to reggae and rock'n' roll. He loved to dance. For those who knew him, Jimmy had the enviable gift of taking life one day at a time, a gift he gave freely and often to others at the time of his illness. To this end, he was fortified in his belief that all life is precious and cyclical, a belief that blossomed as he became more deeply involved in American Indian spirituality. On Saturday, Sept. 1, his life was celebrated at a gathering of his family and friends behind his home. In the custom of an American Indian ceremony, a sacred fire was lit and tobacco, songs, and prayers were offered to accompany his spirit on its journey. Jimmy is survived by Janet and Eli; his stepdaughter, Caedlighe Shore of New York City, N.Y.; his father, Robert Gruber of Groton, and a sister, Kathy Gruber of Hyde Park. He was predeceased by his mother, Aline Gruber. Should friends desire, donations in his memory may be made to Caledonia Home Health Care, P.O. Box 383, St. Johnsbury, VT 05819.
