BOULANGER, RAMONA RUTH, of South Burlington, passed away peacefully at home on January 9, surrounded by her loving family. Mona was born January 18, 1929, in South Barre, one of nine children of Otto Stephen and Lucy (Willett) George. She was a 1948 graduate of Spaulding High School and attended Vermont Junior College in Montpelier. On June 12, 1954, she married David Gilson Boulanger of Orleans, and they settled in South Burlington, where they raised four daughters. Mona was a kind and nurturing soul, a dedicated wife, mother and sister. She was an artist, poet and gardener. But her favorite times were spent with her large extended family, especially her children and grandchildren. Her home was always open, filled with homemade cookies, and anyone who entered was treated like family. Following their retirements from G.E., Dave and Mona spent many happy times at their log cabin on Lake Willoughby. “Camp David” was their retreat from a busy life and a wonderful gathering place for friends and family. During her lifetime, Mona was involved in Girl Scouts, the American Field Service student exchange program, Fletcher Allen volunteer program and the G.E. Wives group. She took great pride in researching her ancestors and has published an extensive genealogy and history of the George Family. She is survived by her daughters: Dr. Christine Boulanger of Monterey, Calif.; Dr. Lori Boulanger of Burlington; Dr. Nancy Boulanger of Brunswick, Maine; and Dr. Linda Lucy Boulanger and husband Dr. John Fogarty of Ethiopia; and six grandchildren. Also surviving are siblings, Gwendolyn Minoli of Barre, Priscilla Paquet of Barre Town, Faye Berube and husband Edmund of Fall River, Mass., Donald George and wife Alita of Barre, sister-in-law Pauline George of Middlebury and many loving nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her husband, David Boulanger; her parents; and four brothers, Stephen, Rupert, Russell and Otto Vernon.
