Janet Wilson Malcolm, 92

Jannet Dorothy “Jaydee” Wilson Malcolm, 92, of Shelburne, Vt., died Sept. 11, 2009, in Shelburne.

She was born in 1917 in Philadelphia, Pa., the youngest of five children of John L. and Janet Wilson.

Jaydee grew up in Philadelphia and Jenkintown, Pa., and attended Abington Friends School for 12 years, graduating in 1935. She continued her education at Swarthmore College, graduating in 1939 and the Moore Institute of Art in Philadelphia.

 Jaydee married James A. Malcolm Jr. in 1942. They lived in Rydal and Abington, Pa. In 1950 they moved with their three children to the Malcolm farm in Jericho. In later years they spent much of their time at their farm in Pawlet, Vt., and then retired to Shelburne. She also enjoyed their family summer home in Bayville and their house in Vero Beach, Fla.

 Jaydee taught First Day School at Jericho Friends Meeting, was active in parent and school groups, and served on the Board of Trustees of Friends Academy in Locust Valley. She was a member of the women’s organization PEO and the Pawlet Home Dem.

 Jaydee had a zest for life, was always busy and well organized, and she was a friend to all. She loved being a wife, a mother, a grandmother and great-grandmother. She loved to welcome people into their home with hearty meals, to sew quilts, make draperies. She braided and hooked many rugs and knitted hundreds of sweaters and afghans for family and friends.  Her numerous deep friendships followed her and stayed with her throughout her long life.

  Her husband, James, of 66 years, survives her.  She is also survived by three children, James A. Malcolm III (Chip) and his wife, Nancy, of Middlebury, Elizabeth (Betsy) Eklof, of Colchester, and John Malcolm and Sue LaPorte of Pawlet; six grandchildren, Sarah LaPerle and her h
usband Adam, Sven Eklof and his wife, Irma, James (Jed) Malcolm and his wife Janet, Robert Eklof, Kari Antonucci and her husband John (Nooch), and Abbe Malcolm and her companion, John Bergman; three great-grandchildren; and several nieces and nephews. 

Her sister, Grace, and her three brothers, Russell, Kenneth, and Gilbert Wilson, predeceased her.

 There will be a memorial remembrance in Shelburne at a later date.

  Memorial contributions may be made to Jericho Monthly Meeting, c/o Samuel U. Mitchell, Treas., 30 Meritoria Drive, East Williston, N.Y. 11596.
