Obituary for Priscilla A. Truchon

Priscilla A. Truchon was born in Lancaster, NH on August 11, 1923, the eldest child of Etta L. Evans (Ramsdell) and Roger F. Evans. She grew up there attending public schools and graduating from Lancaster Academy in 1941. She attended Nasson College in Springvale, ME. and after graduating in 1945, pursued a career as a home economist and teacher working in Maine, Michigan and New Hampshire.

In 1953 she and Gerard J. Truchon were married in Lakeport, NH. Together they raised two sons John (Gerard Jean Jr.) and Evan Matthew while she taught at the middle school in Montpelier VT. And Gerry taught at Vermont College. Sadly, she was widowed in 1982 and moved back to her hometown in 1985 where she helped manage the Town and Country Shop with her sister. Over the past 34 years she was a resident of Lancaster and Whitefield, and spent the last of her years as an active senior at The Riverglen House in Littleton.

Throughout her life, Priscilla loved entertaining crowds of family, friends and colleagues with her culinary skills. She was a master gardener, seamstress, quilter, knitter, and rug maker and shared her exceptional craftmanship with family and friends everywhere. She volunteered for many church committees and drove many miles for Caleb. Priscilla was an avid reader, traveler, and patron of the arts. She will be remembered by all for her wisdom, warmth and her willingness to teach and create.

She is survived by her sons John (Joanne) of Glens Falls, NY, Evan (Lisa) of Lincoln, VT, grandchildren Michael (Albuquerque, NM), Elizabeth (Evansville, IN), Linnell (Philadelphia, PA), Abi (Clifton Park, NY) and great granddaughter Lilia (Albuquerque, NM), sisters Mary Jane Falkenham (Dr. Elwin) (Whitefield, NH) and Sylvia Aldrich (Lancaster, NH), sister in law Donna Evans (Lancaster, NH), nieces, nephews and good friends everywhere.

Priscilla was predeceased by her husband Gerard Jean Truchon Sr., brothers Franklin “Bum” Evans and Samuel Evans, significant family members Peggy Evans, George Aldrich, Pauline and Victor Dyer, Claire and Raymond Martel, niece Sally Falkenham and nephew Keith Evans.

A memorial service will be held Saturday September 14, 2019 at Christ United Methodist Church, Lancaster, NH at 11:00 AM. A luncheon will be served in the parish hall after the service. Burial will be in the Plainmont Cemetery, East Montpelier, VT. at a time, convenient to the family.
