Beverly Ernestine Dopp Paris, age 95, of Pudding Hill, Lyndonville, VT, passed away peacefully on Wednesday, December 21, 2022, at her home on the farm where she lived since 1956.
Beverly (“Bev”) was born September 15, 1927, and raised in Sheffield, VT, daughter to the late David A. and Pearl (Bickford) Dopp. She attended the Sheffield Heights Graded School. She was living on the family farm on Route 16, Glover, VT when she met Lloyd Paris. They were married on March 3, 1948, and shared 63 years of marriage together at the time of Lloyd’s death on September 17, 2011. Aside from raising her children, much of Bev’s life was spent gardening, working outside on the farm, and taking care of the cows. She really enjoyed life on the farm, especially feeding the baby calves, where she and Lloyd lived their lives the way they wanted. Bev was a Christian woman who prayed and read her Bible. She crocheted and made afghans, slippers, and mittens for all the kids and family. She was known to have done very intricate needlepoint in her earlier years. Bev was a wonderful cook and loved cooking and baking for her family; that was her true joy! Those homemade breads and apple pies were always anticipated and mouthwatering.
She is survived by her 4 children: Sharon Burnham of Danville, VT, Cynthia McKnight and husband, Frederick, of Peacham, VT, Laurene Daniels and husband, Brian, of Brunswick, ME, and Eric Paris and wife, Cathleen, of Lyndonville, VT; her sister: Rebecca Squires of Sheffield, VT; 2 brothers: Marvin Dopp of Newport, VT, and Lawrence Dopp and wife, Donna, of West Glover, VT; as well as 9 grandchildren, 12 great-grandchildren and many nieces and nephews.
She was predeceased by 5 siblings: Clarabelle Conley, Alithia Thompson, Melvin Dopp, Robert Dopp and Calvin Dopp.
A private graveside service will be held in the springtime at the Lyndon Center Cemetery.
There will be no calling hours.
