Nancy LaPlante October 25, 1946 - September 25, 2018

Resided in Portland, Oregon

Nancy was born 10/25/1946 to Lyman & Eva Smith, in Plattsburgh, NY. She had 5 siblings of which 2 are still living. She was a line Cook for 30 years before she went to part-time at the age of 50. She is survived by her Husband Dennis, Daughter Michelle, Grand Kids, Kendall & Logan, Nieces, Melissa & Melody and Nephews JJ & Mitchell, as well as great nieces & nephews. She passed away in Portland, OR on September 25, 2018, due to natural causes.

Most people would say she was a unique individual even crazy at times, but she did have a big heart and always would try to help her family if they were in need. She still liked to play Bingo at Elder Place every week. Before she went to live in the Care Home she liked to Drink, Smoke, Play Darts, Dance and Sing Karaoke. She enjoyed Laughing and Have fun with friends & family. The most recent years she was in a Foster Care home suffering from Dementia and other health conditions. She is free to fly with the angels and be reunited with loved ones that have passed before her. We know she will be one of our Guardian Angels and might even Haunt a few?!

    I always enjoyed Nancy’s unique personality. Loved her smile and her laugh. She loved you so much, Michelle. She was proud of you, and proud of your family. I will miss seeing her at family functions.
