Young Belmont woman who died in weekend crash remembered as quiet & elegant

BELMONT — Friends are remembering the young local woman who died in a rollover accident in Meredith early Sunday morning as a quiet and graceful girl.
Linda Frawley, who lives next door to Meredith Bergeron's parents and who is speaking for the family, remembered her as a quiet young lady who always had a book in her hand.
"She's the first one I ever saw with a Kindle," Frawley said.
Bergeron, 22, of 107 Cotton Hill Road was killed in a crash that occurred on Route 25 near Old Center Harbor Road. Police said was headed east when she lost control of her P.T. Cruiser and struck a parked car. She was pronounced dead at the scene.
Bergeron was a 2008 graduate of Belmont High School.
Retired BHS Guidance Counselor Ralph Dixon remembered her as a "sweetheart."
"She was quiet and unassuming," he said. "A real nice young lady."
According to Frawley, Bergeron came to Belmont in 2004 when her parents bought a home in town. Her father is a retired police chief from Webster, Mass.
Frawley said, and her mother is employed at the St. Francis Rehabilitation and Nursing Center.
She said Bergeron was working as a receptionist at the Forestview Manor Assisted Living Center. She attended college for two years at Emmanual College and had been taking some classes locally.
Frawley said Bergeron was very civic-minded and liked volunteering in the community. She said she loved helping organize community events.
"Quiet, but elegant," said Frawley describing the teenager who once helped her plant 500 daffodil bulbs and helped with painting the sign at the historic Province Road Meeting House.
Frawley said the family is in Massachusetts making arrangements and was unavailable for further comment.
Police continue to investigate the cause of the crash.
