Norma May Plourde, 89, of Claremont, NH, died Sunday, August 16th, 2020, in Sullivan County Health Care Facility, with her loving family members close by with their presence in numerous ways. Unfortunately, the COVID-19 pandemic disrupted many of the family members preferred in-person presence, but today’s technology helped ensure Norma knew her family was in daily contact and loved her deeply.
Norma leaves her two sons, Bryan L. Plourde of Lincolnton, NC, and Joseph E. Plourde Jr. of Anaheim, CA, and his wife Patricia; three grandchildren, Jason, Beth, and Derek; and two great-grandchildren, Kaila and Kash. Norma is survived by one sister, Caroline Plourde also of Claremont, NH; and several nieces, nephews, and cousins.
She was predeceased by her husband, Joseph E. Plourde Sr., and two brothers, Albert C. Scribner and Cecil E. Scribner Jr.
Norma was born in Worcester, MA, the younger daughter of the late Cecil E. Scribner, Sr., and Caroline E. (Supernor), and had lived in Claremont for the past 25 years. Previously Norma lived in Charlton, MA, with her husband for 32 years until his death. Norma was a dedicated full-time mother and grandmother, and loved to read, go on driving tours, collect stylish hats, diligently record photos and records of family heritage, and focus her later years’ energy to gardening and various home improvement projects for herself and her many relatives.
Norma was always an energetic and fun-loving lady who was very compassionate and caring not just for her family members, but for others that may be less fortunate. Over the years, Norma demonstrated a very warm kindness for her neighbors and the children growing up in her neighborhood in Charlton, and was well known to many of her sons’ friends as a clever prankster.
Norma’s wishes were to have no funeral services other than a Graveside Memorial Service, to be announced when gatherings are more manageable within the pandemic restrictions, when she will then be joined with her husband in Union Cemetery, Claremont.
Memorial Contributions in Norma’s name should be made to the American Cancer Society.
The Stringer Funeral Home is in charge of arrangements.
