CAROL L. COTTON
ALBURG/ST. ALBANS -- Mrs. Carol Leah Cotton, 47, of Alburg died Saturday night, Dec. 21, 2002, at Fletcher Allen Health Care in Burlington, Vermont of complications following surgery.
Born July 12, 1955, in Aurora, Ill., she was the daughter of the late Richard Sherwood Thornton and Marguerite Evelyn (Wallingford) Thornton of Pentwater, Mich.
In 1973, she graduated Fitzgerald Senior High School, Fitzgerald, Ga., and went on to complete three years of college as a music major at Central Michigan University, Mt. Pleasant, Mi.
Carol was a devoted wife and dedicated mother. She put enormous energies in raising her children to be independent, inquisitive, and of Christian values. She created a home that was comfortable, fun, and secure. Her two children were totally home-schooled by her from pre-school primary to college prep; both were accepted for college entrance and successfully graduated from college.
She loved to travel and see new places. Her loving support of her husband's career moves afforded an opportunity for extensive travel as they lived in 11 different states over the course of 27 years to include Arizona, Alaska, Virginia, Georgia, Michigan, West Virginia, Pennsylvania and Kentucky. Their relocation and move to Alburg during the summer of 2000 was planned as their last, having decided to settle down permanently in Vermont.
Carol loved working with dogs. For many years she raised, trained, and bred Newfoundlands. She was a member of the Newfoundland Club of America. Her dogs earned obedience titles to include one as a water rescue dog; and several had earned points toward Championship. One of her greatest joys was matching a puppy she had bred to a good family and home. Some of those puppies went on to become Champions; all were loved and cherished.
In the last few years, her long time interest in photography had become more than a hobby. She did some free-lance photographer work, established her own web site, published fine-art nature photography, was preparing an exhibit for the Vermont Transportation rest areas, and recently was a finalist in a national nature photography contest. She was an active member of the Nature Photographers Network and published her copyrighted works under the pseudonym of Kate Darby. To view some of Carol's photography, you may visit her web site at www.momentsntime.com Carol is survived by her husband, Jim Cotton; and two sons, Nathaniel Cotton of Alburg, and Dustin Cotton and his wife Lisa of Grand Isle.
