Thank you for your support during this difficult time. Please enhance this tribute to Lorraine by adding your memories and photos.

Lorraine L. Simon, 83, of Goffstown, passed away peacefully on Friday, November 27 at the Community Hospice House, Merrimack, surrounded by her loving daughters.

Born in Manchester, she is the daughter of the late George and Mary Rose (Chavalier) LaPlante. Raised and educated in Manchester, Lorraine was a graduate of Notre Dame School of Nursing. A compassionate and kind nurse, Lorraine tenderly cared for her patients at hospitals around New England, most notably, Catholic Medical Center.

A dedicated wife, mother, grandmother, and friend, Lorraine's family was paramount in her life. She cherished time spent with her daughters and their families. Lorraine enjoyed puzzles and a variety of crafts. She lovingly knitted and quilted blankets for her family and friends. A devoted member of her community, Lorraine volunteered at local churches, breast cancer fundraisers, and, when her daughters were young, the Girl Scouts. Lorraine will be best remembered for her kind heart, humor, and love of family.

Lorraine is survived by her husband, Rodolphe Simon, with whom she shared 56 years of marriage; three daughters, Pamela Baker of Manchester, Audrey Seaman of Homer, Alaska, and Heidi Letko of Denver, Colorado; eight grandchildren; three great grandchildren; several nieces, nephews, and extended family and friends.

ARRANGEMENTS: Lorraine's Memorial and Committal Services will be announced in the springtime. Assisting the family with arrangements is the Phaneuf Funeral Homes and Crematorium, 243 Hanover St., Manchester, NH.

Our prayers and love to my brother Rudy and their daughters, Pam, Audrey, Heidi and their families. I have many wonderful memories of being at their home, especially when I got my license. Loraine was a great nurse. When I was in labor for my first born she was who I called, she was right there, helping me out. She was always in good humor and was fun to be with. She will be missed.
Love, Janet & John Paxton and family

My Condolences to Rudy and family. I worked with Lorraine on the pediatric unit in Notre Dame Hospital now CMC, in the late 60's. She was kind and helpful to me as a new employee. When we became neighbors at Medford Farms we renewed acquaintances. Rudy became my dog walker post hip surgery. Give my best to your Dad, wherever he might reside at the moment.

To Lorraine's family,
So sorry for your loss.
We were classmates at Notre Dame Hospital(CMC) and were keeping each other up to date when we occasionally ran into each other at Market Basket. Always some good laughs.
