Gladys A. Blanchette

Gladys A. Blanchette of Milford, NH, died Thursday, September 4, 2014, at St. Joseph Hospital in Nashua, NH, at the age of 76, with her loving family by her side.

Gladys was born in Goffstown, NH, on June 15, 1938, to Granville A. and Elsie H. (Wood) Stearns and lived for most of her life in Wilton, NH.

She was a loving mother to her two children, Paul L. Blanchette II and Pam Blanchette of Milford, and a caring grandmother to her only grandson, Maxwell Blanchette of Milford. She often cherished time she spent with them, especially on holidays when they were all together.

Gladys was predeceased by her husband of 27 years, Paul L. Blanchette Sr., and her sister, Annie Blood. She is survived by her daughter, Pam Blanchette of Milford; her son and his wife, Paul L. II and Linda Blanchette; and their son, Maxwell Blanchette of Milford; her sister, Ella Demass of Nashua; and several nieces and nephews, who will forever celebrate the gift of her life.
