LIVERMORE FALLS — Louise “Blondie” Bryant, 73, a resident of Park Street, Livermore Falls, passed away at sunrise on Easter Sunday, April 24, at her home surrounded by her loving family. Easter being her favorite holiday it seemed very appropriate that that was the day God called her home. She fought a long, hard and courageous battle with cancer.

She was born July 7, 1937, in Jay, the daughter of Emile Pare and Blanche (Judd) Pare Poulin. On April 10, 1955, she married Larry Bryant at St. Rose of Lima Church in Jay. She was a very devoted wife, mother and grandmother. She was the “Queen” of hugs and kisses. She absolutely loved her holidays to gather the family with love and food.

Blondie very much enjoyed following her grandchildren and great-grandchildren through all their sports and school functions, not just locally but also traveled through their college level. She was very proud of her family because they were her “whole world.”

She was a communicant of St. Rose of Lima Church. Blondie was a lifetime member of the AmVets Post 33 Auxiliary and the Frank L. Mitchell VFW Post 3335 Ladies Auxiliary.

She is survived by her children, daughter, Debbie and Santo DeMillo; son, Gary and Brenda Bryant; daughter, Brenda and Mark Leclerc; daughter, Tanya Desjardins; daughter, Crystal and Jim Vigue; daughter, Kimberly and Ross Hamblin; son, Rodney and Debbie Bryant; 18 grandchildren; 11 great-grandchildren; sisters, Geraldine Richards, Doris “Cartoo” Pare, Pauline Duguay, Jeannine Hebert, Rita Chicoine, Florence Couture and Gloria Norton; brothers, Norman Poulin, Lawrence “Put” Pare and Joey Poulin.

She was predeceased by her husband Larry of 48 years; and two brothers, Paul and Norman Pare; and two sisters, Claudette Deacon and Gertrude Albert.

She will be greatly missed by her family, friends and all who knew her. Messages of condolence may be sent to
