Grace Mary (Moffitt) Barrett "Honey"

August 27, 1938 ~ July 8, 2021 (age 82)


Shushan-Grace Mary Barrett “Honey”, 82, of Shushan, passed away Thursday, July 8, 2021 at the Southwestern Vermont Medical Center in Bennington.

Born August 27, 1938 in Salem, she was the daughter of the late Carlton and Dorothy (Hill) Moffitt.  Grace graduated from Salem Washington Academy as Valedictorian of her class.  

Grace worked for over 30 years at Mack Molding in Arlington, VT until she retired.  Grace truly cherished time with her children, grandchildren & great grandchildren.  She loved to spend her time reading & crocheting blankets for her family, going to bingo & Saturday night card games with Barbara, dinner & gambling with Bear, her long phone conversations with Scott, going to the Salem Tavern to dance & listen to Chris sing while playing the drums and shopping at Yankee Candle and Barnes & Noble with Shelly. 

Facebook was a great way for her to stay connected with family and friends, which was something she truly enjoyed. Shopping on Amazon became another favorite pastime of hers, as she had her own personal delivery boy.

In addition to her parents, she was predeceased by her husband, Glen Bennett Barrett, Sr., daughter Sherry (John Waite), grandchildren Amanda, Amber, Tyler, Autumn, Gerry and two siblings.

Grace is survived by her children: Barbara (Charles) Porter of Shushan, Glen Bennett Barrett, Jr. of Cambridge, Scott (Francine) Barrett of Ravena, Michele (Wes Sr.) Thurber of Cambridge, and Christopher (Nichole Kilmer) Barrett, Sr. of Shushan. Alongside her children, Grace is survived by seven brothers and sisters, 16 grandchildren, 12 great grandchildren, and many nieces and nephews.
