SHELDON - Alfreda Elizabeth Kane, age 81, passed away on Friday, March 16, 2018.
She was born in East Hatley, Quebec, Canada on August 26, 1936 to the late John & Lenora (Smith) Ross.
At the age of 18 she married Walter Kane and started the family of 10 children. In her later years, she started her career as the head cook at the Brownway Residence for 10 years, then retired to her family home in Sheldon Vermont. She enjoyed the summer months outdoors on her swing watching and listening to the birds, while enjoying the beautiful flowers and vegetable garden which she often helped tend to. She always made time for her family especially during the holidays. She was always excited for Christmas Eve because we all gathered together enjoyed her one of a kind fudge and many other delicious foods that she always took time to prepare for all to enjoy.
