Epsom Food Pantry


Good morning one and all. Well, we have been at full speed ahead at the Food Pantry. Ken has organized the Thanksgiving boxes and I know all our members will be just thrilled with all the wonderful food they will be receiving. Along with a fresh turkey and  all the fixings, they will get a fresh large apple pie all cooked.


At this time let me thank everyone from the bottom of my heart for  all the help and support we have received .  It is a large undertaking, but we loved doing it.  Now Christmas is ahead of us and we can use about anything you would like to give to brighten up our families for Christmas.


We have a definite shortage of meat, so Liz, Ken and I thought that if our Epsom  boys who hunt would like to share some venison hamburg, we would love to get it.  Our members do like it, so give me a call and we can chat


As I write this the weekend is ahead of us and I do look forward to it. Hope your Holiday is a happy one.


Until next time,

Jacqueline S. Cutter


EPSOM – Jacqueline Sophronie (Drolet) Cutter, 78, a longtime resident of Epsom, passed from this Earth at her home on Black Hall Rd. on Saturday Nov. 14, 2015. She was born the third child of Doria and Malena (Bishop) Drolet on Sept. 22, 1937, in Pittsfield.


Growing up she loved playing basketball and reading books, enjoyed a multitude of friends, adored owls and worked for NE Telephone. She grew to be a funny, clever and strong-willed woman who married her high school sweetheart, Richard E. Cutter on Aug. 4, 1956, and together they had four children, Randy, Dawn, Wanda and Scott. They raised their family in a home they built, on land they loved, in a town they forever called home and where both were able to live out their lives. There were many, many happy moments spent square dancing, snowmobiling, playing cards, at cookouts and wonderful times spent with her family just living her life, often singing while doing so, Puff the Magic Dragon a favorite.


Together, she and her husband founded RANSCO, a heavy construction company that was our father’s dream, working alongside their children until his death in 1998. She was a rock solid individual who could be relied upon and trusted, and didn’t scare easily.  She persevered with dignity and stoicism no matter the circumstance.


She was predeceased by her parents, her husband Richard, her siblings Arthur, Dorothy, Gloria and her husband Doug, niece Cathy Bull, nephews Christopher Drolet and Daniel Davis, and many beloved extended family members and friends.


Her legacy and her children carry on through Randy Cutter and his wife Mary, their children Jennifer, Robert, Kelly, Rhonda and Rebecca; Dawn and her husband Earle Cate III, her former son-in-law Peter Demers and their children Brandon, Meghan, Seth, Elizabeth and Ella; Wanda Davies and her daughter Nicole; and Scott Cutter and his wife Heidi. Jacqueline also leaves her great grandchildren Kyleigh, Caitlyn, Hayley, Caitlyn, Anna, Riley, Aiden, Bryce, Cole, Eli, Randy and Alan, and her brother Michael Drolet.


A graveside service was held Tues. Nov. 24th, at Loudon Center Cemetery followed by a gathering to celebrate her life at the Loudon Town Hall (next to cemetery).


In lieu of flowers the family requests donations be made to CRVNA Hospice Program, 30 Pillsbury Street, Concord, NH 03301 in support of the important work they do.
