Edna “Sis” Waite, 80

E dna “Sis” Waite, age 80,passed away on Saturday, Oct. 8, 2011 at Rutland Regional Medical Center.

Sis was born on July 24, 1931 in Dorset, Vermont the daughter of Alvin and Nellie (Lake) Wade.

Sis was employed briefly at the Dorset Inn as a waitress. She also did some domestic housekeeping locally, but she truly was a stay at home mother and wife. Sis was the type of citizen any community is blessed to have. In addition to being an amazing wife and parent, she loved being involved and helping better the Town of Pawlet. If there was a need for a volunteer,she could be counted on to be there, no matter the task at hand. She was a member of the PTA, Order of the Eastern Star, the Home Dem. Club and a member of the the Pawlet Community Church. She also became a Hospice volunteer.

Sis was an avid reader. Every day, rain, shine, sleet or snow she would meet up with her good friend Dot Tifft for coffee and a walk through the town she loved. This was a ritual that spanned 40 years.

Sis was predeceased by her husband Arnold “Jim” Waite on July 5, 2011 as well as her brothers: Henry, Floyd, Gordon and Walter. Survivors are her sons: Ashley of Pawlet, Gary of Danby and Bruce of Dorset and a daugher Brenda Waite of Bennington.  Sis was blessed with nine grandchildren and eighteen great grandchildren.

A graveside service was held at 3:30 p.m., Wednesday, Oct.12 at the Mettowee Valley Cemetery in Pawlet, where she will be laid to rest beside Jim.

Memorial contributions may be made to Rutland Area Visiting Nurse Association & Hospice, PO Box 787, Rutland, VT 05702-0787.

Local arrangements are under the direction of the Robert M King Funeral Home, 23 Church St. Granville, NY.
