In memory of
Linda A. Davis
Linda A. (Plourde) (Lamy) Davis of Manchester, NH passed away on October 8, 2019 at the age of 71 at the Community Hospice House, Merrimack, NH after a period of declining health due to complications from diabetes and congestive heart failure, with her loving husband and family by her side. Born in 1947, Linda was the only daughter of the late Bruno and Rita Plourde and was a lifelong resident of the City of Manchester. She graduated from Saint Patrick Catholic Elementary School in 1962 and graduated from St. Joseph's High School for Girls in 1965, after which she continued her education at Hesser College.
She worked for various local companies in an office capacity until retiring from Public Service Company of NH/Eversource after 28 years of service there as a Credit/Collections Representative. Linda's passion in life was her family. She was a caregiver to those that needed her; especially her mother whom she cared for until her death in December of 2013. Linda was a very caring and giving person with a great personality and sense of humor. She enjoyed the beach, her above ground pool, and loved to entertain, laugh and shop. She was a volunteer at CMC, Future in Site, and the New Horizon Soup Kitchen for many years.
When at gatherings with family, friends and co-workers, she was almost always the only one with a camera, taking pictures of everyone. Those pictures turned out to be a blessing in disguise, as she used them in her many time-consuming scrap books that she created and gave to her family and friends as gifts. She was a good listener to anyone that needed a sounding board, and only gave advice when asked. She was always looking out for her family who she was so proud of and adored, especially her grandchildren with whom she had a special closeness; along with her many friends, whom she cherished for so many reasons. Linda was truly an angel in all ways. Her husband was her strength and caregiver for so many years, who without him, she would not have survived her later years.
She is survived by her loving husband Bruce Davis with whom she shared her life for the past 34 years; her lovely daughter Kimberly, and husband David Scott Hayden of Virginia; granddaughter Alexandra Hayden; grandson Patrick Hayden; brother Gary Plourde, and wife Marilyn of Franklin, NH; her only nephew, Jonathan Plourde; her first husband, Denis Lamy; and step-children Daniel Davis, Pamela (Davis) Levesque, Jason Davis, and many cousins and friends. Anyone who knew Linda will truly miss her and her kindness.
Linda's services will be held on Monday, October 14 at Phaneuf Funeral Homes and Crematorium, 243 Hanover Street, Manchester, NH with a gathering starting at 11AM and a memorial service at 12PM. Family and friends are invited to attend.
In lieu of flowers, donations in Linda's memory may be made to the Community Hospice House, 210 Naticook Road, Merrimack, NH 03054.
