Who We Are

edownerEllenor Downer

I grew up in Auburn. I graduated from Auburn High School and Clark University in Worcester. I have four married daughters: twins, Jennifer and Lynn, Paula and Leah and six grandchildren: Sadie, James, Quinn Hope, Elizabeth, Penny and Cora.
I’ve been editor of the Barre Gazette since 2001. Before becoming editor, I was the Oakham correspondent and worked part-time in the Barre Gazette office.
I have two cats and two dogs, 11 hens, one rooster, 12 meat birds and one horse. In my spare time, I like to spend time with my family, read especially non-fiction, watch birds, knit and travel to the family camp on Lake Winnisquam in New Hampshire. I also teach Sunday School and sing in the choir at my church.
