Obituary

Anita M. Gauthier died on May 15, 2020. Born in Bennington, Vermont, she was the daughter of Louis N. and Madeleine M. LaFreniere Gauthier.

She attended Sacred Heart School and was a 1961 graduate of Bennington Catholic High School. She graduated from Trinity College, Burlington, Vermont with a B.A. in History and Education followed by a graduate degree, M.S.L.S., from Syracuse University, New York, in Library Science.

Her career was spent in Bennington as a librarian, educator, and administrator at St. Joseph/Southern Vermont College, the Bennington Museum, and the Bennington Free Library where she served as Director for twenty years, until her retirement.

Dear Chris and Family,
Anita was one of the most special people to grace the library world and my life personally. She led our staff at Bennington Free Library with vision & determination and she nurtured the best in everyone around her. Anita believed strongly in the power of libraries to change lives. She certainly changed mine. Anita's spirit and legacy will always be felt at the BFL. With appreciation, Linda Donigan

Dear Family and Friends,
I am so sorry for your loss. It is never easy to lose someone in death. And Anita sounded like she was an amazing person. I hope that you can find comfort with each other even though we are experiencing a horrible pandemic that prevents people to be able to properly mourn together. I hope that you can find hope in the scriptures that bring us hope and comfort. Revelation 21:3,4

To Anita's Family,
I am truly sorry for your loss. Anita holds a special place in my family as she was my mother's boss at the Bennington Free Library and a mentor to my older brother at Southern Vermont College back in 1970's where she endeared my brother and always made him feel special. Bennington has truly lost a class A1 woman; I"m sure she will be sorrily missed. God Bless you Anita. Thank you for everything.

Anita was a neighbor of ours she was always friendly and she was very tolerant of our dog that loved to run out to say hi. She usually walked about the same time each morning and my dog used to watch for her. I’m very sorry for your loss. We will miss her as a neighbor as will Rascal.
