Tribute & Message From The Family

Sr. Pauline Plant, CSC (Sr. Antonine), 84, of the Sisters of Holy Cross passed away on March 9, 2020.

She was born in Nashua on March 5, 1936 to Willie and Jeannette (Rouillard) Plante. She entered the Congregation of the Sisters of Holy Cross in 1954 and pronounced her final vows in 1961.

Sr. Pauline was a Junior High School teacher in NH, CT and MA and in 1970 was named principal at St. Augustin School in Manchester. She was also a part-time student at Rivier College and served as Secretary at St. Anthony School in Manchester and later Director of Religious Education in Windham.

In 1978, Londonderry House was opened where Growth Counseling took place and Pauline's gifts of listening, kindness and acceptance of the other provided an atmosphere of trust. Fifteen years later her dream of a big white farmhouse in Pittsfield became a reality. BERAKAH, a Place of Blessing, a sabbatical program for women religious who came from around the world, benefited from Pauline's gifts. She continues to be remembered by many who participated in the program.

She was predeceased by her parents; her sisters Irene Cloutier, Emilia Laliberte and Georgette Beausoleil; and her brothers, Gerard Plante, and Peter Plante.

Surviving family members include several nieces, nephews and grandnieces and grandnephews.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to "Sisters of Holy Cross Development Office Fund" and mailed to Sisters of Holy Cross, 367 Island Pond Rd., Manchester, NH 03109.
