Burlington - Ruthmary Marcella Lizotte (Ruth), age 93, passed away peacefully on October 22, 2020. She was born July 6, 1927 in Cincinnati, OH, to Alphonse and Mary Metz. She married the love of her life Robert Anthony Lizotte, on July 28,1945 and they had 70 beautiful years together while residing in Burlington, VT. They enjoyed spending their summers with family and friends at their lakefront getaway in Grand Isle, VT.

Ruth's first and foremost love was for her family. She worked tirelessly and devotedly to provide for her husband and seven children. Ruth's strong faith in our Lord was inspirational. She was a devout Catholic and member of St. Joseph's parish and the Daughters of Isabella. Daily she determinedly prayed for all the many people's lives she could touch. Her endless love went much further then to God, her husband, and her children. She was a loving friend to many, including neighbors, card playing partners, and many lifelong companions who were all treated just like family.

Ruth was rarely still. When she wasn't making something delicious for her family and friends, she engaged in many sewing and knitting projects. Her many projects are treasured by her children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren. She would recharge her energies during beloved conversations with all and or relaxing while reading many mysteries and novels.

For many years Ruth shared her cooking skills at Rice Memorial High School's cafeteria. As in all things, she epitomized service before self.

Ruth was predeceased by her husband; three sisters; a brother; a grandson, Travis Lizotte; and a granddaughter, Jennifer Riordan. She is survived by seven children: Robert Lizotte, Jr. of Hope, ID; Anthony Lizotte of Carbondale, CO; Joy Lovejoy of Albuquerque, NM; Jeffrey Lizotte of Aspen, CO; Vincent Lizotte of Jerico, VT; Sharon Dalrymple of Black Forest, CO; and Denise Rock of Essex Junction, VT.

To my Lizotte cousins:

Sincere sympathies and prayers on the loss of your beloved mother. My mother's sister and Uncle Babe were a joy to be around. We didn't see then very often because of distance, but I'm happy that we were able to see them when they came down to Cincinnati and when we took a road trip to the Northeast and Vermont several years ago, spending a couple of days with them at their summer camp. My wife, kids and even my mother-in-law felt right at home with them. That's the kind of people they were. Those two will have a special place in our hearts and we will cherish memories of them forever.

Prayers of comfort to all,

Charlie and Cindy Nurrenberg
