PRISCILLA ANNE ROY
NORTON–Priscilla Anne Roy, 70, long-time owner of the Lake View (“Averill”) Store in Norton, Vt., passed away unexpectedly on Feb. 19, 2017, after a brief illness. Her dear friend Margaret and niece Kristine were by her side.
Priscilla was predeceased by her father and mother, Victor and Jeannette (Plourde) Roy. She is survived by her brother and wife Ronald and Anne Roy of Massena, N.Y.; her brother
Robert Roy and wife Connie Jackson of Colebrook; her sister and husband Collette (Roy) and Fulton Cook of Elizabethton, Tenn.; two nieces, Kristine and Gabrielle Roy, a nephew Daniel Roy and countless friends.
Priscilla was the heart of the Averill Lakes community, and she will be sorely missed by the many who got coffee, cookies, candy and information at her welcoming store. The store was her life, and her kindness, honesty and generosity touched so many other lives.
Priscilla was active in the square dance community, and was an accomplished dancer. She spun her own wool (and won many blue ribbons), and helped others learn the art. She was
talented at quilting and crocheting. Priscilla loved horses, especially her pet Sham, who has been gone many years. She taught riding and worked with horses at Quimby’s for a time.
She enjoyed snowshoeing and kayaking in earlier days, and even kayaked on Big Averill Lake on Christmas day a few years ago.
There will be no services, at Priscilla’s specific request. A square dance in her honor is planned by her brother Ronald, to take place at Jackson’s Lodge
Donations in Priscilla’s name should be made to a charity of each person’s choice. The family adds, “More than anything, Priscilla would have loved for each of us to do a favor for a friend, neighbor or family member in her memory, as she had done countless times.”

Lyndon Sno Cruisers Trail Report 03/02/2017
Thursday 3/2/17: The "iceburg" trail (52 from the LynBurke to Sheffield) is under water again this morning, and considered impassable, do NOT choose this route to gain access to fuel or food. All low elevation trails have little to no snow, so any riding should be considered (trailer to) take off points and ride high elevations. We have NOT sent any groomers out and will not until conditions improve. The 513 trail (Ramsey 4 Corners to Greensboro Bend) is CLOSED due to a massive water bar that is impassable (and we don't want anyone doing damage to the property trying to get across). Consider, if you MUST ride, to be early season conditions with many HAZARDS.
