DEERFIELD – Elizabeth “Betsy” S. Vogler, 62 of Deerfield, formerly of Bristol, passed away on Sunday, January 5, 2020 at the Concord Regional Visiting Nurse Association Hospice House surrounded by love.
Born on January 31, 1957 in Nashua, she was the daughter of the late Charles and Sarah (Thorpe) Vogler.
Betsy graduated from Fairborn Baker High School in Ohio and went on to attend the University of New Hampshire where she graduated with a bachelor’s degree in education. She was a lifelong educator with the Newfound Memorial Middle School as the Family and Consumer Science Teacher for over 33 years. She had a knack for hosting family and friends, loved planning and organizing as well as baking and shopping. She loved her family, friends and former students, but her animals were a close second, especially her dog Marley, who she enjoyed spoiling.
She is survived by her son, William Stetson and his wife Jessica of Massachusetts; her daughter, Mary Colburn and her husband Benjamin of Deerfield; her brother, Donald Vogler and his wife Joyce of Jaffrey; grandchildren, Charles and Emily Stetson and Abigail and Aaron Colburn; nephews, Michael Vogler of Massachusetts and Chris Vogler of Pennsylvania, as well as numerous friends, colleagues and former students.
A Celebration of Betsy’s Life will be held on Sunday, January 12, 2020 from 1:00 PM to 3:00 PM at the Common Man Inn, 231 Main Street, Plymouth, New Hampshire. A private family burial will take place at the Woodlawn Cemetery in Wellesley, Massachusetts at a later date.
