Renee Caggiano

Caggaino_ReneeRenee Roma (Beaudin) Caggiano  was born on Flag Day, June 14,1919 as the sixth child of eleven to French-Canadian parents. Fittingly she died on July 3, 2016 another national holiday weekend. In her 97 years of life she raised three children, Michael Angelo of Arizona, Raymond John of North Carolina and Joyce Christine of Massachusetts; six grandchildren, Matthew, Timothy, Christopher, Benjamin, Julianna Campos, and Bethany Ely and ten great grandchildren. Like many women of her generation, she worked as a lathe-operator at Pratt and Whitney in Hartford, Connecticut during World War II. She married a paratrooper from the 101st Airborne Division weeks before he was shipped to the European theater. Nine months later, living with her parents in Vermont she gave birth to her first born son. Armand only met his son for the first time after eighteen months, having participated in the famous Battle of the Bulge. After the war, they moved to Long Island and then to Vermont where she spent many years as mother and wife. In 1962, Armand died in a tragic car accident when she was forty-two. With three children to care for she began to work outside the home, first as a chambermaid for the Reed Motel in South Burlington and then as a clerk in a dry cleaning business on Shelburne Road. In the early 1970’s she became a dorm mother at Champlain College in Burlington. Resourceful, loyal and responsible, she made the best of the years that followed, never wishing to marry again. She lived in Florida for almost twenty years and then with her children until the last four years where she resided at Highgate Manor Skilled Nursing Facility in Dedham, Massachusetts where she was under the care of her granddaughter, Julianna (Jill) Campos, Assistant Director of Nursing at the facility. She was well attended by her family in later years, especially by several of her nieces. Her family will miss her smile, quiet compassion and loving manner. She leaves two sisters, Aline Elliot of New York and Suzanne Moorby of Vermont and was predeceased by five brothers and three sisters. May God Bless her gentle and loving soul. A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated in St. Anthony’s Church, Burlington, VT, Saturday July 9, at 1:00 o’clock. Interment New Mount Calvary Cemetery, Burlington, VT.  Visiting Hours omitted. If desired contributions in Renee’s memory may be sent to St. Michael’s Episcopal Church, 112 Randolph Ave., Milton, MA 02186.
