Linda Joyce Menard, 77, passed away at home where her devoted husband, Gerald J Menard, tirelessly cared for his wife and kept a promise to keep her home. She leaves behind four daughters whose hearts are broken but, thankful for her peace, Deborah F. Riccitelli (Marty Riccitelli), Christine F. Ives (Jeff Ives), Elizabeth Teixeira, (Joseph Teixeira.), Nicole Liberti (Anthony Liberti). Her nine grandchildren (Brittney, Sarah, Gabrielle, Anna, Gianna, John, Andrew, Loren, Amie) and five great grandchildren (Landon, Julian, Peighton, Jack, Charlie) will forever miss their Mimi. She leaves behind her only living sibling, Kenneth Renaud and his wife, Joanne Renaud. She was predeceased by her parents, Rita and Harvey Renaud, her sisters, Ruth Hickson and Susan Renaud and her nephew Danny Renaud. All her nieces and nephews will miss their Aunty Linda. A special thank you to all the PCA and hospice workers for the care they provided to Linda over the past 12 years. Linda was a registered nurse who graduated from Baystate Nursing School in 1981; she was born to be a nurse and had a very successful career. Our mother will live on in our hearts forever.
