Sylvia B. Chapin, 73

Sylvia B. Chapin, 73, of Clarendon, Vt., passed away peacefully on Sept. 21, 2009, at her home surrounded by her family, following a short battle with cancer.

She was born on May 2, 1936, in Granville, the daughter of Raymond and Mildred (Pratt) Ballard.

 Sylvia was a graduate of Granville High School and Albany Business College.

Mrs. Chapin worked for Telescope Folding Furniture, Proctor Bank, the University of Vermont Extension Service, Grace Congregational Church and Trinity Episcopal Church.

Mrs. Chapin was an avid 4-H leader for many years.  She served on the Rutland County Advisory Board, UVM Extension Service and Rutland BPW.

She enjoyed her winter visits in Garden City, S.C., but awaited her return to Vermont for maple sugaring, to begin spring planting for her love of gardening and Chippen-veggie vegetable stand. She also had a passion for houseplants, farm animals and her cats. She very much enjoyed visiting and working (gardening) with her grandchildren.

 Survivors include her husband, Lyndon Chapin of Clarendon; her mother, Mildred Ballard of Wells, Vt.; two sons, Mark Chapin and his wife, Donna, of Clarendon, Gary Chapin and his wife, Michelle, of Shrewsbury, Vt.; a daughter Vicky Brown and her husband, Chet, of West Rutland, Vt.; a brother Raymond Ballard Jr. and his wife, Bonnie, of Poultney, Vt.; two sisters Brenda Chmielewski and her husband, Wayne, and Joy Sendra and her husband, Lee, all of Wells; eight grandchildren, Justin, Jeremy, Kerri, Christopher, Erik, Brittany, Alyssa and Megan;  one great-grandchild, Caden; several nieces and nephews and cousins; her cats, Poppy and Lilly; and beloved neighbors and friends.

 She was predeceased by her father in 1991.

 There will be no calling hours. A private family burial will take place at the Evergreen Cemetery in Pittsford. A memorial service was celebrated at the Union Church of Proctor on Sept. 26

with the Rev. Russ Gates officiating.

 In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to the Rutland Area Visiting Nurse Association and Hospice, P.O. Box 787, Rutland Vt. 05702 or to the Rutland County Humane Society, 765 Stevens Road, Pittsford, Vt. 05763.
