    To the Conant Children:
    Your mother’s kind manner touched many lives. I knew Meg was a special lady when I first hugged her at Summer Place so many years ago through her friendship with Bob. I write this with deep sympathy.
    Sincerely,

  9. Bev Tucker says:

    I was a colleague of Meg’s working with her in the Business Department at Chelmsford High School and the entire Department will best remember Meg for her COLD body temperature. She was always playing with the thermostat upping it as high as she could. Of course other members of the department would get very impatient with her and “fun” arguments would ensue. But the issue was never resolved. Meg was always a lady and a delight to work with.

    • Rick Conant says:

      Thanks Bev for your sweet comment. Yes, no matter where she was, she was always complaining about the heat…or lack thereof. It’s a theme that ran through her life and “fun” arguments ensued from her family as well. I know that she thought the world you. Thanks for sharing your thoughts with us. She will be missed.

  10. Paula Borgasano says:

    Dear Annie and Family,
    Our hearts are heavy for you with the passing of Mom. We hope the many happy, loving memories you all shared help you navigate the days ahead. Ms. Meg was a joyous blessing for so long to all who knew her, just as you were a loving gift to her.
    Much love,
    Paula and Tony

  11. Jayna Klatzker says:

    I am so sorry to see you have lost you mother and grandmother. It is so hard to loose her. May you move through this time of sadness with strength and love.

  12. Melissa Doherty says:

    Megs Family

    Your mother was one of my mom’s, Jacquie Roberts, dearest friend and also a colleague in the Business Department in Chelmsford High. They were friends for many years until my mom’s passing in 2000. Meg was a very kind person, a wonderful friend to my mom and a great teacher (I had her for a teacher in the early 70’s).

    You are in my thoughts.

    Melissa (Roberts) Doherty (Hampton, NH)

    • Rick Conant says:

      Thanks so much Melissa for reaching out. My Mother loved Jacquie! They were such dear friends since they worked together at CHS and she often mentioned how much she missed her. Perhaps now their together again having a grand ‘ol time. Thanks again, Melissa, we’ll miss them both.

  13. Pamela Bowen Sheridan says:

    I remember Mrs. Conant from high school…Had her as a teacher…Condolences to the Conant family…Ricky, Jay and Linda and Anne…She was such a nice woman…Pamela Bowen Sheridan

    • Rick Conant says:

      Thanks so much Pamela for the remembrance. Sounds like you enjoyed having her as a teacher at CHS! Thanks again for reaching out to us during this time. She’ll be in our hearts forever.

  14. Bruce and Liz Hulslander says:

    A long life, well lived but that doesn’t mean that you will not be missed, Meg. Our hearts go out to you all as you say goodbye to your Mom, your Grandmother and Great Grandmother. Love, Bruce and Liz

    • Rick Conant says:

      Dear Bruce and Liz. Thanks so much for your sweet words. She absolutely adored you two. Wish she could have gotten one more adjustment just to visit with you again. She loved that. Love from Meg’s Family.

  15. Nancy Kiernan Bell says:

    I am so sorry for your loss. As a kid, I remember having breakfast and tea with her in the morning when I would s;eep over. In high school, she was that familiar face in a sea of unfamiliar. She was a big part of my childhood. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.
    ~Nancy
