Georgia H. Bebee WEST RUPERT — Georgia H. Bebee, 91, of West Rupert, passed away peacefully on Monday, Sept. 6, 2021, at her residence. Our Mom was born Dec. 22, 1929, in Wells, Vermont. She was the daughter of the late George and Lena (Batease) Hadaway. She attended school in Rupert/West Rupert. As an adult, she worked at the Mary McClellan Hospital in Cambridge, New York, before going to work for Sherwood Medical in Argyle as a printer, retiring in the 1990s after 27 years of service. She attended the Church of Christ in West Rupert and was a member of the Rupert Leisures. She loved sitting on her front porch watching the traffic go by. She liked reading fiction novels, going for walks, baking treats for and spending time with her family and a few close friends. She especially enjoyed the festivities of Rupert Old Home Days every August and going for drives, which hopefully included a stop for lunch at one of her favorite restaurants. She was predeceased on Feb. 16, 1998, by her husband of 50 years, Arnold Bebee Sr.; by a special niece, Marcia (2019); our Dad’s sister, Martha (2021); and by a baby brother and four sisters and their spouses. She was especially close to her sister and brother-in-law, Ruby and Howard Chapman, who predeceased her in 2019, both being in their early-90s. Mom was the youngest in her family and the last of her siblings to pass away. She is survived by her son, Arnold Jr., of Wallingford; her daughter and son-in-law, Vivian and Larry, of Rutland; her daughter, Cynthia, of West Rupert; a niece, Bonnie Trout, of Sunderland; and nephews, Wilson (Carley) Chapman, of Fort Edward, New York, and Howard (Valerie) Chapman, of Salem, New York; as well as many other cousins, nieces, nephews, great-nieces and -nephews too numerous to mention here. Mom was dearly loved and will be sorely missed by those of us who knew her best. A graveside service will be at 11 a.m. Wednesday, Sept. 15, 2021, in the Wells Cemetery, Route 30, Wells, Vermont, with Pastor Paul Mychack officiating. The family respectfully requests that those attending please wear a mask. Memorial donations in memory of Georgia may be made to the Salem Rescue Squad, P.O. Box 360, Salem, NY 12865; the Rupert Fire Dept., P.O. Box 68, West Rupert, VT 05776; or the Second Chance Animal Center, 1779 VT Route 30, Arlington, VT 05250.
