COVID-19 Killed More Than 200 Vermonters

In the past year, more than 200 Vermonters have died from COVID-19. They were parents and grandparents, husbands and wives, coworkers and friends, and among them was a waitress, grain truck driver and special agent. They loved dancing, painting, travel, basketball and dogs. They volunteered at church, handed out popsicles to the neighborhood kids and led an Abenaki clan.

VPR reached out to family and friends for help remembering who Vermont has lost to COVID-19. Below are their stories.
