The Earth got a tad bit darker but the sky got a whole lot brighter with the passing of Elaine (Patty) Plourde on Sunday, October 13th. She took the greatest pleasure in the little things in life that most of us overlook: a good Dean Koontz book, the warmth of the sun shining on her skin, the budding of her lilies, and the purr of her fur babies. The things she held the most dear were her four grandchildren; Gavin, MacKenzie, Emma and Alannah; her two daughters and son-in-laws, Gregg and Kelley King and Ronald and Tanya Perry; her siblings, Linda Roy, Catherine Kjelstrup, Joann Dembkoski, John Dembkoski, Brenda Dunning, and Deborah Robinson, along with all of her nieces and nephews. Family was everything to Patty and she is now dancing up in Heaven with her father, Theodore Dembkoski, and her mother, Irene Dembkoski.
Patty taught us to give second chances because it’s never too late to turn yourself around and that the little acts of kindness can make a big difference in one’s world. She was a shoulder for all of us to cry on and always made herself available, even if it was a stranger in the grocery aisle. In honor of Patty’s beautiful time on Earth, stop rushing and enjoy your surroundings, call a family member but most of all – squeeze those babies tight!
Calling hours will be Tuesday, Oct. 22, from 5-7pm at Roy Funeral Home, 93 Sullivan Street, Claremont, NH. A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at 11:00 am on Wednesday (Oct. 23) at St. Joseph’s Church in Claremont, NH, with the Rev. Arockia Antony, pastor, officiating. Interment will follow in St. Patrick’s Cemetery. A small gathering at the Assumption Hall will follow the committal.
You are invited to share a memory of Elaine or leave a message of condolence in the family guest book at www.royfuneralhome.com.
