Lisa J. Forrett

Lisa Jane Forrett, of Vernon, VT,passed away on Friday, November19, 2021, surrounded by her loving family.

Lisa was born in Greenfield, MA on November 10, 1958, to Franklin & Ellen Forrett (Kinsman). She was educated in Vernon and Brattleboro, VT and later attended Lyndon State College in northern Vermont.

After graduating, she worked for the Brattleboro Reformer for a number of years, and most recently Howard Printing, Inc., which she enjoyed very much.

Lisa was an avid antique collector and loved to attend auctions and flea markets. She had a knack for interior design, and could take something deemed worthless or ugly and turn it into something beautiful.

She loved spending time in her gardens, feeding her birds, and enjoyed the passing wildlife that strolled through the fields surrounding her home, and she thoroughly enjoyed watching “her” beautiful bobcat that frequented the patio.

She enjoyed travelling to concerts and shows with her cousins and friends, and enjoyed tag sailing with her uncle Butch, always coming back with something good! In the winter, Lisa looked forward to taking her snowmobile out and taking the kids for a spin or two.

Her beloved brothers, Tim & Darren, enjoyed Lisa’s special fondness for sweets, and often benefited in the form of a pie she found along her way. She also loved to ‘sneak’ special treats to her great nieces and grandchildren as well.

Lisa left behind her son, Justin Cook, of Vernon, VT, whom she loved wholeheartedly, and supported throughout his life with his endeavors. Justin fondly remembers shopping as their favorite past time and enjoyed working on the house together. He made her a grandma with his two sons Asher & Lennon, and she loved every moment she spent with them.

Lisa leaves behind her brother, Tim Forrett and his wife Tammy of Vernon, VT, her brother, Darren Forrett and his partner Temple of Vernon, VT, her beloved nieces, Dana Forrett Macaluso and Amanda Forrett, her great nieces, Nevaeh, Natalie, Ninah, and Naysah, whom she doted on, and her 3 nephews, Tim Forrett Jr., Nathan Forrett, and Matthew Forrett, along with cousins, aunts & uncles.

Any donations can be made to the Windham County Humane Society, 916 W. River Rd., Brattleboro, VT 05301

My first memory of Lisa was back in 1996 when I was doing a computer test for my new job and this woman had been working away typing a mile a minute behind me... so fast! I had the honor of working with Lisa for several years after. She had such a wonderful smile and a cool and collected nature about her, and I will never forget her laugh.
