New Aerie and Auxiliary Officers have been Installed This Week
May 24, 1937 -September 6, 2020
Sadly, we announce the passing of long-time officer and our dear friend, Roberta "Bobbie" Trask.
Bobbie passed away at home with her children by her side, in Ormond Beach, Florida.
She was born May 24, 1937 in Massachusetts and grew up in Hudson / Litchfield New Hampshire where she attended Alvirne High school. Bobbie worked for government defense company, Sanders, Lockheed Martin for 30 years until she retired in 2002. She then retired to her family home in Ormond Beach, Florida.
She became an active member of the Daytona Beach Shores Eagles club in the Ladies Auxiliary along with her lifetime partner Ken Hall who was an Aerie member. Bobbie was well known for her ability to create memorable birthday celebrations and holidays and worked tirelessly on the annual Breast Cancer Charity events held every October.
Bobbie was a devoted mother and grandmother, and survived by her daughter Tracy Trask of Wakefield, New Hampshire, and her son, Kevin Trask of Somersworth, New Hampshire. She had five grandchildren that were her pride and joy: Liam Jaquish, Spencer Trask, Logan Trask, Alexis Jaquish and Drue Jaquish.
Bobbie is preceded in death by her lifetime partner Kenneth Hall.
A memorial service will be held at the Daytona Beach Shores Aerie on Saturday, October 3 at noon.
August 27, 1939 - April 6, 2020
It is with sadness that we acknowledge the passing of our dear Auxiliary sister, "Wif" Lesperance.
Wilfredine "Wif" (Chiasson) Lesperance passed peacefully on Monday, April 6, 2020 ending a brave battle with cancer. She enjoyed golf and crafting. She would crochet during every free moment. Her real passion, however, was line dancing. “Wif” taught line dancing four or five nights a week, choreographing songs to fit her classes to the delight of all. Her vibrant smile and contagious laugh will surely be missed by many.
She and her husband Dick had lived in Florida since the early 2000's. She is pre-deceased by her parents Marguerite (Shomph) and Rene’, sisters Norma and Rachelle (McIntyre), brother-in-law Jimmy Holland and her husband, Dick Lesperance. Wilfredine is survived by her sister Maureen (Holland), sister Emily (Casedy) and husband Lee, brother-in-law Rod McIntyre, and sister Theresa along with nieces, nephews, grandnieces and grandnephews. Wif also leaves dear friend Joyce Brown, to whom her sisters owe a world of love and gratitude for always being there for her.
A memorial service will be held in Port Orange, FL later this year. In lieu of flowers, Wif’s sisters ask that you pay kindness forward and hold each other closer in your hearts during these trying times.
