Charlotte Elaine (Reed) Plaisance, 73, of Dudley, Massachusetts, died Friday, May 12, 2017 after a long illness, surrounded by her family.

She was the daughter of E. Warren and Helen (Grenon) Reed of Shrewsbury, MA. She graduated from Shrewsbury High School in 1962, and was a member of Hillcrest Worship Center of Auburn, MA. She worked at New England Power, The Fair Co., Inc. and Michaels Stores, Inc.

Her husband, Paul Allen Plaisance, predeceased her in 2003.

She leaves her son, Joseph Plaisance and his partner, Michael Pillsbury of Rutland, her daughters Dawn Rosa, wife of Frankie Rosa, and Paula Gottlich of Webster, Lee Ann Redmond, wife of Derek Redmond, Sr., Shayanne Plaisance and Nicole Kilderry, wife of Kevin Kilderry of Dudley and Suzette Patenaude of Worcester, and her grandchildren Jerica,Jon-Paul, Emily, Paul, Brittany, Erin, Cadence, Derek, Sarah, Christopher, Nathan and Gabrielle, and her great grandson, Elijah.

She was an avid knitter, crocheter and sewist, with many people receiving the fruits of her labors. She was a devoted wife and mother, to her husband and to both her children and grandchildren, and the many children that she "adopted" over the years. Her home was home to many others, and her generosity and sense of humor made her home the "center" of the neighborhood.
