Johnson Vermont: On June 3, 2015, with family at her side, Eleanor B. Garland of St. Johns Street died peacefully at Green Mountain Nursing and Rehabilitation Center in Colchester, VT. Eleanor was born in St. Johnsbury VT on May 1, 1920 the daughter of Benjamin and Mabel Goodale Barrett. She grew up with her sister on a dairy farm in Plainfield where they shared summers with cousins who remained lifelong friends. Eleanor attended grammar and high school in Plainfield graduating in 1938. She attended Green Mountain College in Putney completing her education at the Mary Fletcher School of Nursing in Burlington graduating in 1942 as a registered nurse. Eleanor began her nursing career at Copley Hospital and later worked at a hospital in Ann Arbor Michigan. She returned to Vermont to help care for her ailing mother while working as night supervisor at Mary Fletcher Hospital. In 1946, she married Norman Garland. Together they farmed in the Marshfield-Plainfield area; eventually buying a dairy farm in Hardwick where they raised four children. Eleanor resumed her Nursing Career at the Hospital in Barre and came full circle spending 25 years at Copley Hospital before her retirement. Eleanor and Norman moved to Lamoille County in 1975 where Eleanor has lived for the past 40 years. After her retirement Eleanor provided volunteer respite care for hospice patients in the Lamoille County area.
