Janice’s obituary follows:

Janice Evelyn (Fuller) Currier passed away in the early morning of Oct. 7, 2015, at the age of 94.

Janice was born in St. Johnsbury, Vermont, on March 18, 1921, and was the youngest of five children born to Clyde Ellsworth Fuller and Bernice (Holder) Fuller. She had many cherished memories growing up with her beloved mother, father, sisters and brother in their home on Spring Street.

After graduating from St. Johnsbury Academy with the class of 1939, Janice attended Lasell College in Boston. She left Boston to work at Goodyear in Windsor, Vermont, and then returned to St. Johnsbury to work for many years at Northern Cadillac on Eastern Avenue. It was there that she met her future husband of 54 years, David. Janice often told the story of dismissing David’s advances by telling him she would not go out with him until he owned a Cadillac. The rest was their history as it was just the beginning of their life together, the city girl and the country boy. Together they had four children, Megan, John, Joel and Mary and raised them with much love, laughter and joy on their century old farm in Danville.

During her life, Janice became a master quilter, meeting with her quilting girls every Wednesday for years. She volunteered for the American Society of Dowsers, Hospice, and was a member of The Order of The Eastern Star and the Danville Congregational Church.

Janice was predeceased by her brother Henry Fuller; sisters Eleanor (Fuller) Peters; Margaret (Fuller) Nicoll; Elizabeth (Fuller) Remick; and husband David Currier.

She is survived by her daughter Megan Haygood and husband John of Danville; son John Currier and wife Barbara of Norwich, Vermont; son Joel Currier and Linda Hunkins of Barnet; daughter Mary Currier and Martha Kingsley of Danville; her former daughter-in-law Liliana Cubero, with whom she remained close; four grandchildren: Zachary Currier of Arlington, VA; Katherine Currier of New York, NY; Marissa Currier-Cubero of Danville; and Joaquin Currier-Cubero of Danville; and many nieces and nephews and their families.
