Good morning one and all. Well, we have been at full speed ahead at
the Food Pantry. Ken has organized the Thanksgiving boxes and I know
all our members will be just thrilled with all the wonderful food
they will be receiving. Along with a fresh turkey and all the
fixings, they will get a fresh large apple pie all cooked.
At this time let me thank everyone from the bottom of my heart for
all the help and support we have received . It is a large
undertaking, but we loved doing it. Now Christmas is ahead of
us and we can use about anything you would like to give to brighten
up our families for Christmas.
We have a definite shortage of meat, so Liz, Ken and I thought that
if our Epsom boys who hunt would like to share some venison
hamburg, we would love to get it. Our members do like it, so
give me a call and we can chat
As I write this the weekend is ahead of us
and I do look forward to it. Hope your Holiday is a happy one.
Until next time,

EPSOM – Jacqueline
Sophronie (Drolet) Cutter, 78, a longtime resident of Epsom, passed
from this Earth at her home on Black Hall Rd. on Saturday Nov. 14,
2015. She was born the third child of Doria and Malena (Bishop)
Drolet on Sept. 22, 1937, in Pittsfield.
Growing up she loved playing basketball
and reading books, enjoyed a multitude of friends, adored owls and
worked for NE Telephone. She grew to be a funny, clever and
strong-willed woman who married her high school sweetheart, Richard
E. Cutter on Aug. 4, 1956, and together they had four children,
Randy, Dawn, Wanda and Scott. They raised their family in a home
they built, on land they loved, in a town they forever called home
and where both were able to live out their lives. There were many,
many happy moments spent square dancing, snowmobiling, playing
cards, at cookouts and wonderful times spent with her family just
living her life, often singing while doing so, Puff the Magic Dragon
Together, she and her husband founded RANSCO, a heavy construction
company that was our father’s dream, working alongside their
children until his death in 1998. She was a rock solid individual
who could be relied upon and trusted, and didn’t scare easily.
She persevered with dignity and stoicism no matter the circumstance.
She was predeceased by her parents, her
husband Richard, her siblings Arthur, Dorothy, Gloria and her
husband Doug, niece Cathy Bull, nephews Christopher Drolet and
Daniel Davis, and many beloved extended family members and friends.
Her legacy and her children carry on
through Randy Cutter and his wife Mary, their children Jennifer,
Robert, Kelly, Rhonda and Rebecca; Dawn and her husband Earle Cate
III, her former son-in-law Peter Demers and their children Brandon,
Meghan, Seth, Elizabeth and Ella; Wanda Davies and her daughter
Nicole; and Scott Cutter and his wife Heidi. Jacqueline also leaves
her great grandchildren Kyleigh, Caitlyn, Hayley, Caitlyn, Anna,
Riley, Aiden, Bryce, Cole, Eli, Randy and Alan, and her brother
A graveside service was held Tues. Nov.
24th, at Loudon Center Cemetery followed by a gathering to celebrate
her life at the Loudon Town Hall (next to cemetery).
