Germaine Bardet Vuillequez

Germaine was born in New York City April 12, 1912 to Edouard Bardet and Helene Joray. She lived in Greenwich Village and graduated from Textile High in 1929 at the age of 16. She began her career in design in the textile district of New York City and worked for several design houses for 11 years.

In 1937 she married Jean Vuillequez and began a life that eventually took them traveling and living all over the world. They lived in Stamford, where Germaine was a faithful volunteer at the Stamford Hospital for 20 years. They moved to Horizon House in Lusaka, Zambia, and maintained homes in London, England, New York City and Mendon, Vermont. In 1986 they retired to Sawgrass in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida. In 1993, after the death of her husband, Germaine built a little house in New Milford. She lived happily there and enjoyed her garden until she recently retired to Hancock Hall in Danbury.

Germaine's art evolved from textiles to watercolors, to gold leaf tolework and later to sculpture in wood, stone and bronze, in styles that ranged from true to life to abstract. In her later years, she returned to textiles and delved into floor loom weaving for as long as her hands would allow.

Her family, neighbors, and friends old and new will remember her for her charm and great style, her fabulous cooking and attitude of hospitality, her generous spirit, and her unfailing determination to keep going.

She leaves behind a greatly saddened family; son, Richard and his wife Brenda; daughter, Diane and husband Jim Morris, all of Brookfield; a nephew, Edward Bardet of Murfreesboro, Tenn.; grandsons, Duane Andrews and his wife Tracey of Roxbury, Jeffrey Vuillequez and his wife Gretchen of Rochester, N.Y.; granddaughters, Ann-Michele Andrews and her husband Michael Klug of Greenwich Village, N.Y.; Lisa Vuillequez Tierney and her husband Paul of St. Petersburg, Fla.; five great granddaughters; and sisters-in-law, Suzanne Vuillequez of Fairview, N.J. and Julia Bardet of Valdese, N.C.
