SHARON — Lindsay Maria Waldron passed away unexpectedly on June 22, 2024, while residing in Sharon.

She was born in Poughkeepsie on Aug. 9, 1982. She was the loving mother of Lily Dolan, and the loving daughter of Garma Belter Waldron and the late David Waldron. She was the loving sister of the late Gared Waldron.

Lindsay grew up in Sharon and attended Sharon Center School, Housatonic Valley Regional High School and went on to receive her Associates Degree in Early Childhood Development from Dean College.

Her love of children began as a camp counselor at Camp Sloane in Lakeville. She was also a former assistant teacher with Extras in Salisbury. Her love for children moved her to compose two children’s books. She later worked at Harney & Sons Fine Teas for six years where she enjoyed her job.

Lindsay loved animals, loved to dance, and share time with family and friends. She was a vibrant gal and had an extraordinarily strong will to overcome many challenges when she was diagnosed with a medical condition 20 years ago. She was a miracle in her mother’s and family’s eyes and hearts.

Lindsay is survived by her mother, Garma Waldron, her daughter, Lily Dolan, her sisters Jennifer Waldron and Patti Lewis both of Savannah, Georgia, many aunts, uncles, cousins, and many friends all of whom she loved greatly. She will be deeply missed.

A memorial service will be held on July 13, at 11:00 a.m. at the Sharon Congregational Church.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to The Sharon Volunteer Ambulance, PO Box 357, Sharon, CT 06069, and to Little Guild of St. Frances, 285 Sharon-Goshen Turnpike, West Cornwall, CT 06796.

The Kenny Funeral Home has care of arrangements.

17th Annual New England Clambake: a community feast for a cause

The clambake returns to SWSA's Satre Hill July 27 to support the Jane Lloyd Fund.

The 17th Annual Traditional New England Clambake, sponsored by NBT Bank and benefiting the Jane Lloyd Fund, is set for Saturday, July 27, transforming the Salisbury Winter Sports Association’s Satre Hill into a cornucopia of mouthwatering food, live music, and community spirit.

The Jane Lloyd Fund, now in its 19th year, is administered by the Berkshire Taconic Community Foundation and helps families battling cancer with day-to-day living expenses. Tanya Tedder, who serves on the fund’s small advisory board, was instrumental in the forming of the organization. After Jane Lloyd passed away in 2005 after an eight-year battle with cancer, the family asked Tedder to help start the foundation. “I was struggling myself with some loss,” said Tedder. “You know, you get in that spot, and you don’t know what to do with yourself. Someone once said to me, ‘Grief is just love with no place to go.’ I was absolutely thrilled to be asked and thrilled to jump into a mission that was so meaningful for the community.”

Getting to know our green neighbors

Cover of "The Light Eaters" by Zoe Schlanger.

This installment of The Ungardener was to be about soil health but I will save that topic as I am compelled to tell you about a book I finished exactly three minutes before writing this sentence. It is called “The Light Eaters.” Written by Zoe Schlanger, a journalist by background, the book relays both the cutting edge of plant science and the outdated norms that surround this science. I promise that, in reading this book, you will be fascinated by what scientists are discovering about plants which extends far beyond the notions of plant communication and commerce — the wood wide web — that soaked into our consciousnesses several years ago. You might even find, as I did, some evidence for the empathetic, heart-expanding sentiment one feels in nature.

A staff writer for the Atlantic who left her full-time job to write this book, Schlanger has travelled around the world to bring us stories from scientists and researchers that evidence sophisticated plant behavior. These findings suggest a kind of plant ‘agency’ and perhaps even a consciousness; controversial notions that some in the scientific community have not been willing or able to distill into the prevailing human-centric conceptions of intelligence.
