Barbara Joan (Stott) Pope passed away on Feb. 3, 2018, with family at her side, following a near-three-year struggle with pancreatic cancer. Barbara was born on May 4, 1938, to Leona (Mildred) (Currier) and Ronald A. Stott in Island Pond, VT, and graduated from Brighton High School in June 1955. She then graduated from the Auburn Maine School of Commerce and began her teaching career in Rangeley, ME, moving to Windham High School and then returning to VT, where she taught at Waitsfield High School and was a member of the first faculty of Harwood Union High School. During this time, Barbara met William Pope, and they married in Waterbury, VT, on June 20, 1966. A year later, they moved to Northfield, VT, where both began teaching at Northfield High School. She went on to teach at U-32 and Randolph Career Technical Center, from which she retired in 1997. In her spare time, Mom loved to read.
