Katherine was born in Montpelier on Sept. 2, 1922 to Charles and Bernice (Pembroke) Harpan. She graduated from St. Michaels High School in Montpelier. After graduating, she worked as a switchboard operator. On Sept. 7, 1946, she married her high school sweetheart Raymond Bisson, after his return from WWII. Together they farmed and raised a family on Bailey Street until passing the farm forward to sons Raymond and Timothy Bisson. Katherine was a lover of family and nature. She was especially in love with Vermont's ever changing seasons. She will be remembered for the all-telling twinkle in her Irish eyes. Katherine is survived by her six children and their spouses; Bernice (Michael) Coleman, Raymond (Ellin Blouin) Bisson, Anne (Blair) Salisbury, Jeanne Bisson (Ikuzi Teraki), Peter (Debra LaGue) Bisson, and Timothy (Sharon Abbiati) Bisson. She is survived by her sister, Dorothy Foy and step-sister Marion Peduzzi and two brother-in-laws, Richard Bisson and Paul Blanchette. She is survived by 18 grandchildren and 21 great-grandchildren. All of which were dearly loved by their "Gigi". Katherine was predeceased by her husband of 62 years, Raymond, and her sister Josephine McKeon. "Jesus, help me to see everyone as you see them so that I can love them as you love them." There will be no calling hours. A Mass of Christian burial to honor and celebrate her life will be held on Thursday, April 22, 2021 at 10am in St. Monica Catholic Church in Barre. Burial will follow to St. Sylvester's Cemetery in Lower Websterville.
