Norman Warriner Bohn
Norman Warriner Bohn, 80, of Charlotte, VT passed away peacefully at home on June 29, 2021, following a long illness.
Norman, son of the late Harold and Mary Bohn, was born on February 10, 1941, in East Orange, NJ. He grew up in Montclair, NJ and graduated from Hoosac School in 1960. Norman attended the University of Vermont (UVM), where he met his beloved, late wife Roxie. They married in 1965. Norman also formed life-long friendships through the University and Sigma Nu Fraternity. He graduated from UVM in 1964 and taught for four years at Fryeburg Academy in Maine before completing a master’s degree in non-western history from Montclair State University in 1970. He returned to Vermont, where he taught History at South Burlington High School for 29 years.
Norman was an avid lover of jokes and one-liners, current events, and history (with a special interest in World Wars I and II). His life travels took him cross-country as a newlywed, to Florida and Costa Rica for vacations, and abroad to Europe many times. As much as Norman enjoyed traveling, he was happiest at home in Vermont – spending summers on Lake Champlain with family and friends, cutting wood, and tending his garden and yard.
He is survived by his two children (Christopher and Jessica Bohn); sister (Emily-Ellen Mudryk); three grandchildren (Garrett, Nathan, and Halle Bohn); and two nieces and their families (Jennifer and Matt Culhane; Ellen and Al Turnbull).
A Celebration of Life will be held at the University of Vermont on September 18, 2021, from 2 to 4pm at the Dudley H. Davis Center, Livak Ballroom. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that memorial gifts be made to the Norman Warriner Bohn ’64 Scholarship Fund to help provide educational opportunities at UVM for Vermont students.
