NORTHFIELD ? MarieJeanne Dunne, 88, of Northfield passed away on Thursday, Feb. 23, at Concord Hospital. Jeanne was born on Oct. 14, 1928, in Nashua, where she grew up before moving to Dover, Laconia and then Northfield in 1959. She was the daughter of the late Wilfred and Isabelle (Plante) Sirois and the wife of 62 years to Christopher Dunne. Jeanne attended Rivier College and then became a cosmetologist, co-owning and operating Jeanne-Kay Beauty Salon in Nashua followed by owning and operating Jeanne D's Beauty Shoppe in Northfield. She was a devout Roman Catholic and was actively involved in St Mary's Church of the Assumption in Tilton, teaching catechism and participating in innumerable church fairs over the years. She enjoyed reading and was very skilled at crochet and knitting. She loved playing bingo, cribbage and Pictionary (though not-as-skilled as she was with knitting, much to the delight of those playing the game with her). She donated many of her knitted items to various nursing homes and charities while gifting many adored baby blankets to her young grandchildren. Jeanne is survived by her husband, Christopher Dunne of Northfield; a daughter, Kathryn Delia and her husband Anselmo of Clinton, Connecticut; two sons, Jay Dunne and Sean Dunne of Northfield; four grandchildren, John Delia and his wife Sarah of Wilton, Connecticut, Kristen Ciccone and her husband Carlyle of Guilford, Connecticut, Meaghan Dunne of Portland, Oregon, and Garrett Dunne of Cambridge, Massachusetts; and her two beloved great-grandchildren, Cameron Delia and Connor Delia. Her family will always remember her kindness, her smile, her delicious meatballs she made for parties, her love of frogs, and her love for the generations of children that followed her. A Christian service celebrating her life was held on Feb. 27 at Paquette-Neun Funeral Home in Northfield. Burial followed on March 2 at St. Francis Xavier Cemetery in Nashua. In her memory simply say a prayer for Jeanne.
