Lucille Mary Fernald, of Plaistow NH, passed away on May 4, 2007, at the Rockingham County Nursing Home in Brentwood NH at the age of 84. Lucille was born in Walla Walla WA on September 19, 1922. She lived in Portland OR from 1923-1929, when the family, consisting at the time of her parents Herbert Collins and Hilja (Koskinan) Collins, six children, and a dog, moved to New Hampshire. She was one of eight children with two brothers and five sisters. Lucille had several nicknames throughout her life but the one that was held dear by all was just "G," given to her from her little Autumn. G had a wonderful life full of giving and optimism. She was always full of life and ready to give a helping hand to family, friends, neighbors, and everyone she came in contact with. She was rarely without a smile or kind word. Many of you will read this and remember Lucille as the one always playing the practical joke. Whether at a Sears Roebuck gathering (where she worked for more than 20 years), family outings, or just a get together, "Lou" was always the prankster. She will be remembered by all who knew her as a loving, caring woman full of life. She will be deeply missed.

She was predeceased by her husband, whom she married on February 28, 1947, Ralph A. Fernald; brother Roy Collins; and sisters Violet Culligan, Julia Gigliotti, and Ruth Mitchell.

Mrs. Fernald is survived by her daughters Sharlyn Joyce Fernald of Danville NH and Marilyn Jean Fernald of Plaistow NH; son Dennis George Fernald of Portland OR; granddaughter Autumn Mary Fernald of Portland OR; sisters Dorothy Rowe of Brentwood NH and Barbara Gorton of Danville NH; brother Paul Collins of Danville; and numerous nieces and nephews.
