Joan E. Vigneron

November 30, 2017


GREAT BARRINGTON, Mass. — Joan Elizabeth "Betty" Vigneron passed away November 30, 2017, at home in Great Barrington, Mass., where she was a longtime resident since 1957. 



She was predeceased by her husband of 51 years, Dr. E. Morgan Vigneron, M.D., her sister Teresa Fulton of Briarcliff, N.Y., and brother Stanley Nowak of Barrington, R.I. 



Betty is survived by her three sons, David of Stockbridge, Mass., Thomas of Great Barrington, Mass., and Daniel of Corte Madera, Calif.; and grandchildren Levi, Seth and Zara. 



Betty loved the Berkshires and the people here. Personally, she enjoyed hiking, running, flying as a private pilot, and teaching practical science, and thus naturally felt moved to protect our environment.  She loved science and education in general, graduating from Simon’s Rock College in 1983 and studied advanced teaching at UMass Amherst.



Funeral notice: The family will receive friends on Wednesday, December 27, 2017, at a time to be announced at Finnerty & Stevens Funeral Home in Great Barrington. 



Those who desire may make memorial contributions in her name to the Fairview Hospital c/o Finnerty & Stevens Funeral Home, 426 Main St., Great Barrington, MA 01230.

David,
The years I've known your mother are far too many to count. I will always remember her for her inquisitive mind and endless empathy towards the world. She made the world a much better and please know your in my thoughts.
