Mont Vernon – Phyllis Tremblay, 88, of Mont Vernon passed away April 3rd at St. Joseph Hospital Nashua, after a brief illness.
She was born in Sidney Maine April 8, 1928 the daughter of William and Marguerite Hughes and had lived in Mont Vernon for over 50 years. She was predeceased by the love of her life, Donald “Pete” after 65 years of marriage, in February of 2014. The 2 of them worked very hard as they provided a home for their 5 children “on the hill” and were proud of that achievement. She was predeceased by a son Paul in 2008.
She is survived by four children and their spouses, Wayne and Bernadette Tremblay of Mont Vernon, Mark and Deb Tremblay of Milford, Germaine and Paul Colburn of Hillsboro and Janice and Chris French of Hampstead. Also by seven grandchildren, ten great grandchildren; two sisters, Arlene Fosett and Alice Maheux of Maine.
She was affectionately referred to as Mommo by her family and was a very independent and active lady throughout her life enjoying reading, her flowers and vegetable garden. She loved to pick fresh berries to make jelly, jams and other treats for her family to enjoy. She continued to care for her home even when she should have left the shoveling of snow to others! Her greatest joy and pride came from her children and the strong relationships and companionship they shared.
The family plans a graveside ceremony at Green Lawn Cemetery in Mont Vernon at a later date.
