Vivian “Mickey” Virginia Muchemore, 81, died peacefully on Monday, March 22, 2021, at her home surrounded by her loving family.
Mickey was born in Portsmouth, NH on December 30, 1939, and was the daughter of the late Frank Laderbush and Eva A. (Shea) Letourneau.
For many years, she was employed for J.J. Newberry’s in Portsmouth, NH.
Mickey will be most remembered for her time she volunteered while residing in Rochester, NH for over 20 years. She was an integral member of the Disabled American Veterans and served as a past commander of the women’s auxiliary as well as a member of the Military Order of the Cootie.
Patient, gentle, and kind to all, Mickey was a simple woman who had a green thumb and a love of crocheting and crafting. She enjoyed teaching and playing games with her two sons, grandchildren, and great grandchildren - some favorites being Bingo, Uno, and Mancala. Mickey was always quick with a witty or sarcastic comment or ten and had a sense of humor that could light up anyone’s day. She was a fighter right to the very end but always stayed strong and stubborn- she never lost the personality for which she was well known and loved. A great listener and a friend to many, Mickey will be deeply missed and stay forever in our hearts.
Mickey is survived by her two sons, Ricky Muchemore and family friend Derek Hultgren of Bermuda Dunes, CA and Michael Muchemore Sr. and his wife Kerrie of Nashua: her six grandchildren, Chrystal Toussiant, Ashley Lavoie and her husband Jon, Lauren Muchemore, Meghan Berthiaume and her husband Matt, Michael Muchemore Jr. and his wife Shannon, and Hannah Muchemore. She is also survived by her five great-grandchildren, Brooklynn Erno, Corey Lavoie, Hayley Lavoie, Carter Lavoie, and Mackenzie Berthiaume; her sister, Marilyn Furbish of Portsmouth; Mona Johnson, Wanda Furbish, and Deb Brock as well as many other nieces, nephews, and cousins.
Mickey was predeceased by her long-time companion of 30 years, Lawrence Pelletier, as well as her sisters, Dolly Dame, Doris Bilger, and Eleanor Laderbush.
Mickey’s family would like to extend a special thank you to the nurses with Home, Health and Hospice for their care and compassion provided to Mickey and her family.
At the request of Mickey’s family, a private ceremony will be held at a later date. Arrangements entrusted to the care of ROCHETTE FUNERAL HOME AND CREMATION SERVICES, 21 Kinsley Street, Nashua. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Mickey’s name to Home, Health, and Hospice, 7 Executive Park Drive, Merrimack, NH 03054.
