Joyce Evelyn Swett passed away peacefully on September 21, 2022 at her home in Lyndonville,
Vermont. Joyce was born April 19, 1925. She was preceded in death by her husband Paul E.
Swett. Joyce and Paul had two children, Phyllis Swett (Bill Dalton) and Paula Swett (Pete
Johnson). Edward Robbins, her beloved partner was at her side when she passed away. Ed’s
children Mark (Debbie), Kevin (Kathy) and Linda (Eric) Johnson and their families all loved Joyce.
We have extreme gratitude for Linda who was Mom’s caregiver until the end.
Joyce (Gran)was adored by 8 grandchildren Aaron (Katie), Conor (Missy), Molly Quinlan (died
2020); Mackenzie (Kip)Towns, Zachary (Alyssa)Bohlen, and Lindsay (Andrew)Bohlen, Heather
Hayes (Justin), Heidi Marsano and twelve great-grandchildren.
She was a wonderful wife, mother and grandmother. Her life work took many directions -a
court stenographer, Caledonian Record typesetter, legal assistant, a partner in Paul Swett
Builders, car restoration and maple sugaring business with Paul. She was lucky to meet Ed
Robbins who also adored maple sugaring. She was devoted to The South Church, The
Searchlight Group and the St. Johnsbury Academy 1943 class of girls. She was a member of the
Eastern Stars, a docent at the athenaeum, and a hospital volunteer. She was always happy to
live in St. Johnsbury and to be a 1943 graduate of the St. J. A.
Joyce was a kind, caring, generous soul who was very accepting and loving to all. She remained
grateful and thankful to everyone for everything to the very end. We thank you for the legacy
of grace and empathy for all.
There will be a graveside family service.
