It is with a heavy heart that I include this latest post, we recently lost a beloved member of the Beaudoin-Laroche family. Claire Chase (Bouffard) died peacefully after a surgery to repair her hip on Friday July 13, 2012. The heart problems she had been having coupled with the fall and surgery proved to be too much.
 There will be a gathering of Family and friends at her daughter Kim Chases' home  on July 28, 2012, from 2 p.m. on, at 39 Grove Street, Essex Junction. It will be a potluck, and any and all whose lives were touched by Claire are invited to attend. On Sunday, July 29, 2012, all are invited to join the climb to the summit of Mount Mansfield to consecrate Claire's spirit to the wind, as per her typically clear directives. In lieu of flowers, please send donations to the Vermont French-Canadian Genealogical Society of Vermont, P.O. Box 65128, Burlington, VT 05406. Arrangements are with the LaVigne Funeral Home in Winooski.
