    BENNINGTON — Earlene Dorothy Fellows, 88, a former resident of Sunderland, died May 30, 2013, in Bennington.

    She was born Nov. 18, 1924, in her grandparents’ farmhouse in West Danville, the daughter of Myrtle Fellows. She remained at the farm and was raised by her grandparents.

    During wartime she lived with an aunt in Massachusetts, and was employed in the nearby shipyards. At war’s end, among other jobs, she became primarily a waitress in New York City, and also did some modeling.

    In 1960, she returned to Vermont, and was the owner/operator of the Candlelight Motel in Arlington. By 1974, she sold the motel and renovated the Inn Towne Motel in Ludlow. When she sold the Inn Towne, she built her dream home, a chalet in Sunderland. She then obtained her real estate license, worked for a firm for a time and then started her own real estate business, which she continued to operate into her 80s.

    Survivors include a sister-in-law, Betty; nieces and nephews; and a goddaughter, Shanna Jones. She was predeceased by a brother, Francis Jones.

    Committal services will be held Monday, Nov. 18, 2013, at 2 p.m. at Park Lawn Cemetery.
