Tears of a Dying Angel

Memorial for the Edmond Painchaud family in Old Mt. Calvary Cemetery off Archibald Street in Burlington, Chittenden County, Vermont, just south of the Winooski River and U.S. Route 7. Buried beneath this statue of an angel with arms crossed are Edmond Painchaud (1834-1918), Octavie Vautrin Painchaud (1848-1920), and their children, Joseph R. (1877-1932), J.M. Roch (1886-1956), Phillippe E. (1887-1956), M. Louise, and M. Yvonne.

Old Mt. Calvary was primarily for French-Canadian Catholic families.
