Sandra “Sandi” (Trefren) Aronson Spooner passed away unexpectedly at her Marshfield, VT, home on Sept. 25, 2017. Sandi was born to George and Theda (Chamberlain) Trefren, of Lyndonville, on Jan. 25, 1940. Sandi graduated from Lyndon Institute in Lyndonville and went on to earn her degree from the Vermont College of Cosmetology. On July 7, 1974, she married Douglas Aronson. They blended their families to raise a family of nine before having one child together. In 1975, after running a family dairy farm in Berlin, Sandi and Doug bought the Woodbury Country Store and moved to Woodbury, VT. For years, their store thrived and diversified as an authentic general store. After selling the store, Sandi held various jobs and enjoyed positions in which she interacted with the public. On June 17, 2017, Sandi married Mervin Spooner, of Marshfield. Though their time together was brief, Sandi and Merv were inseparable.They enjoyed dancing, spending time at the Twin Valley Senior Center, attending church, taking their beloved dog, Jackie, for creamees, and doing chores together at their Marshfield home. Even more important to her was accepting people for who they were and supporting them in her quiet way. This was evident, by her helping others in need anonymously. Sandi made a common practice of leaving things that people needed when they were not home, as it was important to her that people not feel indebted to her or ashamed of their circumstances. Being little in stature, those close to her know her heart was the largest part of her. Sandi is survived by her only sister and brother in-law, Pauline and Ronald Drew, of Lyndonville. Sandi was a cherished mother to Ann and Mike Cookson, of Cabot, Diana Gomez, of Bridgeport, CT, Carlos Gomez, of Kingman, AZ, and Merilyn and Bill Ready, of Terryville, CT. Stepchildren include Dug and Maria Aronson, Carl and Marina Aronson, Scott and Tammy Aronson, all of Randolph, Vermont; Tammy Aronson, of Fort Myers, Florida; Karen Lilley, of Williamstown, Vermont; Kim Aronson, of Wilmington, Vermont; David Spooner, of Marshfield, Vermont; and Alison and Dan Ricker, of Sharon, Vermont. Sandi is survived by 25 grandchildren, 12 great-grandchildren and five great-great-grandchildren.
