Cynthia J. Beaulieu


Cynthia “Cindy” J. (Rollins) Beaulieu, age 83, a long-time resident of Vermont, died Saturday morning, April 30, 2022, after a short decline in her health.  She was born on July 18, 1938, in Nashua, New Hampshire, and was the second child of the late Irvine and Ruth Rollins.

Cindy had an extended office career and was a working mother for much of her life.  She was a secretary and later an administrator at Sanders Associates in Nashua, New Hampshire, for 20 years while raising a family.  In 1981 she moved to the Northeast Kingdom where she began part two of her career working for the Visiting Nurses Association (VNA) in Newport.  She was initially the director’s administrative assistant and later the leader of the VNA personnel department, retiring from those roles after 20 some odd years.  She then moved to the Burlington area to be near her youngest son and his family to enjoy her work-free lifestyle.

Michael Albert Hadvab

Michael Albert Hadvab of Barton died peacefully and comfortably at the Veterans’ Administration Hospital in White River Junction on May 6, 2022.

Michael was born to Pavel and Mary (Chomich) Hadvab on December 26, 1942, in Koromla, Czechoslovakia.  It wasn’t long after they moved to Vilvoorde, Belgium, to escape the war.  It was there he spent most of his childhood.

At the age of ten, Michael boarded a ship with his parents and immigrated to the United States and settled in Meriden, Connecticut.  Though he spoke many languages, English wasn’t one of them. This gave him a little difficulty in entering the school system.  Fortunately, a close cousin and a very special teacher took him under their wing and helped him to make the adjustment.  He also credited his love of music for helping him make the difficult transition.  Music was a passion that followed him his entire life.

In 1964 he met Carol Perry through some mutual friends and on November 14, 1964, they were married.  They knew they wanted children to share their lives with, so they were over the moon with the birth of their son Michael and then again four years later with the birth of their son Matthew.

Michael was an excellent provider for his family.  It wasn’t uncommon for him to work odd hour shifts or to come home and tell Carol he quit his job and got a new one so that he could earn an extra nickel per hour.  Another way that he provided for his family was with his time.  He took many opportunities to travel with them.  His favorite trips were the ones where they went camping.  He loved to talk about those, especially when he had the photos he took and developed himself.

Documenting life was something that Michael took a particular interest in.  It started with taking photos and then later turned into video recording EVERYTHING:  family functions, TV shows, car shows, and the list goes on.  (He may also have secretly brought a video camera into a concert venue. Security caught up with him quickly!)

In 1987, Mike, Carol,and Matt moved to Barton and the 5-16 Pizzeria was born.  For 22 years, Mike and Carol poured their hearts into the business, but they left Mondays (their closed day) for spending time with each other.  After their health began to decline, they made the difficult decision to close the pizzeria in 2009.  This gave them more time to focus on each other and their family, and more time to serve their God, Jehovah, together.

Michael is survived by his loving wife of 57 years, Carol Ann (Perry) Hadvab, of Barton, his brother George Hadvab and his wife, Jeannine, of Meriden, his son Michael Hadvab, of Farmington, Connecticut, and his son Matthew Hadvab and his wife, Katie, of Newport.

His grandchildren are Megan Hadvab and her fiancé, Alex Rosenburg, of Plainville, Connecticut, Michael Hadvab Jr. of Statesboro, Georgia, Kaleigh Noyes and her husband, Jordan, of Brownington, Spencer Hadvab and his wife, Stephanie, of Newport, Mason Hadvab, and Colton Hadvab.  Mike also loved being a great-grandfather to Parker and Greyson Noyes.

Mike’s ability to “see the other side of the coin” and humorous personality will be dearly missed.  He left an impression on everyone whom he visited with and was never afraid to be himself with them.

A Zoom online service will be held at a later date. Please contact [email protected] for information on how to join.
