PLYMOUTH — Holly Kay Clifford, 59, of 9 Bell Road, Plymouth, a long-time resident of Plymouth, passed away quite unexpectedly at Lakes Region General Hospital in Laconia in the late afternoon of Friday, Oct. 25.
Holly was born in Saugus, Massachusetts, on May 3, 1960. She is the daughter of Leonard and Ruth Russell of Peabody, Massachusetts. The family moved twice and finally settled in Ashland, where she went for most of her school years.
Holly always had a smile on her face and the “gift of gab,” as she could talk to anyone, friend or stranger, it didn’t matter. That kind of personality came in handy when she worked with her clients at Lakes Region Community Services.
Holly enjoyed skiing as a young person and fishing in her older years. She was also a diehard Patriots and Red Sox fan, cheering for both teams.
Holly is survived by her husband of 39 years, Kenneth G. Clifford; first son Wade and his wife, Amanda; second son Nicholas and his significant other, Kelly Maines; and grandsons Xzavier and Charlie Clifford. She also has a sister, Robin Heath, and her significant other, James Danahy; nieces Rhonda Bloom and Crystal Heath; and last but not least, her beloved “Jack” the black Labrador retriever.
With respect to Holly’s wishes, there will not be any calling hours, but there will be a celebration in her name at a later date. Future notification will be posted online and in newspapers.
Mayhew Funeral Homes and Crematorium assisted the family with their arrangements.
