Born in Rutland, VT, Mrs. Roy was the daughter of the late Gladys (Matt) Cox and Walter H. Cox.
Mrs. Roy was a homemaker. She was a member of St. Bernadette’s Catholic Church in Harrington. She enjoyed crochet, knitting, playing solitaire, and doing crossword puzzles. She was associated with the First State Model Railroad Club and enjoyed going to their convention every year in Springfield, MA. She also loved going to classic car shows.
Many times when her husband was on flying trips, she was both a mother and a father and did a wonderful job being so. What also gave her great joy was following her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren on Facebook.
