Obituary

Leona A. (Corriveau) Roy, 88, of Goffstown, passed away peacefully on Monday, October 9, 2017 at the Hillsborough County Nursing Home, surrounded by her loving family.

Born in Manchester, she was the daughter of the late Joseph and Eva (Bilodeau) Corriveau. Raised and educated in Manchester, she met and married the love of her life, the late Jean Paul Andre "Pete" Roy. The young couple settled in Goffstown to raise their beautiful family.

A dedicated wife, mother, memere and friend, Leona's family was paramount in her life. She took great pride in caring for her family. A talented seamstress, Leona crocheted and sewed clothing for her children during their youth. In her spare time, Leona enjoyed completing crossword puzzles and word searches. She found great comfort and solace in the sights and sounds of the ocean. Leona will be best remembered for her generous heart and love of family.
