Sheila Jewett-Dragoon

July 4, 1955 — July 26, 2023

BERKSHIRE- Sheila O. Jewett-Dragoon, age 68, passed away at her home with family by her side on Wednesday, July 26, 2023.

Everyone who met Sheila knew she was a true firecracker, appropriately born on July 4th, 1955 in St. Albans to the late Ruth (Frazier) and Gerald Jewett Sr.

Sheila, along with her nine siblings, was raised in Montgomery on her family's farm. She developed an incredible work ethic early in life by helping on the farm, throwing hay bales, working the sugar bush, and her favorite: feeding the calves. Sheila attended Montgomery and Fairfield elementary schools and graduated from Richford High School in 1973. After graduation she worked for Dueso's, the Hockey Stick Factory, and Champlain Cable until she took a position for IBM where she retired after 30 years in March of 2011. While working at IBM she was able to start her own business, a staple in the community and gathering spot- the Udder Delight Creemee Stand in Enosburg Falls, where she owned and operated for nearly 10 years.

She met her husband Richard "Dick" Dragoon and the two were married on June 1, 2001. Together they enjoyed going out to eat, taking day trips, and attending family events. Sheila was also a member of the Richford Auxiliary for 50 years and the VFW in St. Albans.

Sheila grew up with a strong sense of order and a keen eye for detail. Throughout her life, she had a strong belief that everything should be done the right way, and she approached each task with precision and care. Her home was a testament to her impeccable standards, as she meticulously maintained a clean and welcoming place for her family. Above all, Sheila loved her family fiercely, offering unwavering support, guidance, and full bellies. She looked forward to cooking and baking for her family and was known for her Fritters, Monkey Balls, and Maple Cream Pie.

Sheila is survived by her husband of 22 years, Richard "Dick" Dragoon, of Enosburg; children Nathan Dragoon and his significant other Sarah Macy and his children Noah, Reid, and Ayla of Greenville Center, NY, Nicole Dragoon and her husband Matthew Glitman and their two children Ira and Evelyn of St. Albans, Nicolas Dragoon and his wife Yazmin of Lompac, CA, Neil Dragoon and his daughter Natalie of Burlington, and Savannah Jewett-Dragoon; siblings, Wayne Jewett and his wife Evelyn of Enosburg, Gerald Jewett Jr. and his wife Cheryl of Fairfield, Katheryn King and her husband Howard of Montgomery, and Sherman Jewett and his wife Marie of New Haven; siblings-in-law, Donna Jewett of Berlin, Lorraine Jewett of Naugatuck, CT; special nephew, Jerry Tatro of Franklin; many special nieces & nephews; and great nieces & nephews.
