Obituary: Anne Padgett Bond
Anne Padgett Bond, 92, formerly of Montclair, died on June 14, 2019, at the McClure Miller
Respite House in Colchester, Vt., with family by her side.
Mrs. Bond was born in Wilmington, N.C., on Nov. 11, 1926, to Deems Boylan and Mary Agnes Gurley Padgett. After graduating from New Hanover High School in 1944 and spending a year at Flora MacDonald College, she met William Harold Bond, and the couple married in 1947 in Wilmington. They spent a year in Madison, Wis., where Mr. Bond finished his degree in dairy manufacturing and she spent the winters ice skating as often as possible.
The couple then made Montclair, their home for the next 20 years, where they raised three children and Mr. Bond joined the family business, Bond’s Ice Cream.
Mrs. Bond made lifelong friendships in Montclair, particularly through her involvement in Union Congregational Church and in P.E.O. (Philanthropic Educational Organization).
The family moved to Vermont in 1970, living in Essex Junction, Burlington, Jericho and Williston. Mrs. Bond enjoyed cross country skiing, gardening, rug hooking, quilt making, hosting a bed and breakfast, and summer days at the family camp on Lake Champlain, particularly after the arrival of grandchildren.
Mrs. Bond was predeceased by her husband William Harold Bond and her parents Deems Boylan and Mary Agnes Gurley Padgett.
She is survived by her brother, Richard Padgett (Janice), of Tehachapi, Calif.; her children, Kathleen Bond Borie (Louis) of Richmond, Vt.; Judith Anne Bond (Paul Decausemacker) of Burlington, Vt.; and William Harold Bond Jr. (Katherine) of Bountiful, Utah; her grandchildren, Nicholas Bond, Kali Bond (Kevin Teeter), August Borie, Kristen Bond, and Hannah Borie; and great-grandson, William Teeter. Also her step-grandchildren, Kevin (Alli) and Jillian Decausemacker; and her step-great-grandchildren, Ella and Lucas Decausemacker.
