Obituary


NORWICH - Olive J. Buddington June 11, 1925 - June 15, 2017

I died on Thursday. I wasn't ready to go; but I didn't have any choice. I've had the most wonderful life - the only child of Viola and William Buddington - born on Eighth Street in the Buddington home. We've lived there since the 1890's. The house was built in 1840.

NORWICH - Olive J. Buddington June 11, 1925 - June 15, 2017

I died on Thursday. I wasn't ready to go; but I didn't have any choice. I've had the most wonderful life - the only child of Viola and William Buddington - born on Eighth Street in the Buddington home. We've lived there since the 1890's. The house was built in 1840.

After graduating Willimantic State Teacher College (now Eastern), I moved to Greenwich CT to teach at the Cos Cob School. From there I went to teach at Teacher's College, Columbia University and then back to Greenwich to the North Mianus School.

I loved teaching and Greenwich - the best - and I earned a B.S., M.A. and a 6th year certificate all in Early Childhood Education. I kept busy with educational work and traveling around the world. After retiring with 37 years, I came back to Norwich to be with my father who lived to be 92, more community work and politics.

I repeat, I've had a wonderful life, met many wonderful people and enjoyed myself tremendously. Sorry I had to go. Thank you to all those wonderful people. Love ya - Olive
