Joan N. Aichroth
Joan N. Aichroth, 90, of Charlotte, VT, passed away on March 4, 2021. Joan was born in New Brunswick, NJ to William M. and France (Elder) Nulton on June 21, 1930. She lived happily with her parents and siblings, dividing her time between Homeland Farm in Middlebush, NJ, Highland Park, NJ and the “Jersey Shore”.
Joan graduated from Douglass College of Rutgers University and married Donald T. Aichroth shortly afterward. Together they raised their delightful children. As a Marine Corps family, they lived at various bases in the United States, later moving to Vermont where they lived in Burlington, Shelburne and Charlotte.
In Burlington Joan began her teaching career in earnest; first at Manpower Training and then as an English teacher at Burlington High School, a career she embraced wholeheartedly for twenty years. In 1990 she earned a graduate degree at St. Michael’s College in Colchester, VT.
Joan was a former member of Delta Kappa Gamma, The Daughters of the American Revolution and a board member of Home Base, Inc., a non-profit organization serving the disabled. She was an insatiable reader, loved swimming, flowers and, most of all, her wonderful family and friends.
Joan is survived by her son Jeffrey, her daughters Laurie and Susan, as well as her grandchildren Robert, Katherine, Emily and Nathaniel. She was predeceased by her extraordinary husband Donald and their beloved children Andrew and Julie.
A private burial service will be held in the near future.
Arrangements are in care of Corbin and Palmer Funeral Home, 9 Pleasant Street, Essex Junction, VT.
