NASHUA- Kristen L. DeLuca, 50, died peacefully at her home on Wednesday, February 5, 2020. She is the beloved wife of Frank DeLuca with whom she shared 30 years of marriage.
Kristen was born in Nashua on February 14, 1969 and is the daughter of William H. Reed and his wife Mary-Ellen of Nashua and Laraine (Veno) Norwood of Merrimack NH.
She is a Nashua High graduate; class of 1987. She was employed at Southern New Hampshire Regional Medical Center in the billing office and as an administrator at Arrow Straight Chiropractic in the early 1990's. Kristen spent most years being a homemaker, loving wife, mom, and caregiver to many loved ones; especially Roger Sciascia, whom she loved as her own and cared for for the past 16 years. She was baseball Mom to hundreds of boys who fondly called her "Ma."
Kristen loved life and surrounded herself with people. She loved to dance and enjoyed a good party; especially celebrating those she loved. She always wore a smile and had a kind word for everyone. She loved Big and unconditionally. She gave without ever expecting something in return and was generous to a fault. She was truly selfless. Her family meant everything to her and her granddaughters were her "heart." They brought her so much joy. We will miss her sweet nature, her laugh, and her infectious smile.
Kristen was predeceased by her grandparents Clayton and Phyllis Veno and Erma Reed; and her niece Madison McLaughlin. In addition to her parents and her husband, Kristen is survived by her three children, Jonathan DeLuca and his wife Brianna of Northwood, Geoffrey DeLuca of Nashua, and Bradford DeLuca of Nashua; her three grandchildren, Jaidyn, Paisley, and Hadley DeLuca. She is also survived by her sister, Karen McLaughlin and her husband Robert of Litchfield; her brother Todd Bickford and his wife Melissa of North Carolina; and her brother Kevin Reed. She leaves behind several nieces and nephews whom she loved dearly, as well as her best friends Heidi and Mary.
