Obituaries » Stanley and Elaine Fitch
Stanley Harry Fitch and Elaine Ellen Bullock Fitch were married for 71 years and continued their journey together on August 30, 2022. Thanks to Vermont’s Death with Dignity law, Elaine and Stan died peacefully at home at the time of their choosing. They were surrounded by family who shared memories, tears, laughter, and love and gratitude for one another. Stanley was born on July 25, 1923, in the farmhouse in Calais where he spent his entire life. He carried on the tradition of his parents, Clyde and Mattie Fitch, as a dairy farmer. Elaine was born on July 31, 1929, to Mildred and Raymond Bullock of Calais. She held bachelor’s and master’s degrees from Johnson State College. A beloved educator, she served primarily in Barre City Schools as teacher and principal. Their acceptance and kindness led to many deep connections that transcended generations; in many ways they were the heart of the community. Proud to be their progeny are daughters and their partners, grandchildren, and extended family. A memorial celebration is being planned for Sunday, September 25, with details to be announced.
