Jerilyn A. Deshane 44, of Walpole, NH, died Thursday, February 27, 2014 at the Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center, Lebanon, NH, following a sudden illness.

She was born in Brunswick, Maine, August 27, 1969, the daughter of Joseph I. and Jane M. (Berry) Mitchell.

She worked for many years as a commercial lines claims supervisor for the Peerless Insurance Company and the National Grange Mutual Insurance Company, both of Keene. She had left that profession to pursue her dreams of working in medical services. However, working as an E.M.T. was not fitting in with her much more important role of being a mother. At the time of her death, Jerilyn was working part time as a home healthcare provider and she was also a full-time student at Granite State College working towards a degree in nursing and social work.

She was an outgoing person, always light-hearted, and who thoroughly enjoyed life. She was a breeder of Labrador retrievers and enjoyed completing home improvements of all kinds. She just recently started long distance running and just completed her first 5K. However, her favorite role was that as mémère and raising her children.

Jerilyn is survived by her children, Patrick J. Letendre, Corynne A. Letendre, David E. Deshane and Jennae B. Deshane, all of Walpole; a grandson, Syrus J. Letendre of Walpole; her parents, Joseph I. Mitchell of Unity, ME and Jane M. Hamel of Litchfield, NH; her brothers and sisters, John P. Mitchell of Pittsfield, ME, Jodi S. Mitchell of Cedar Park, Texas, James P. Mitchell of Fontana, CA, Jennifer L. Chacos of Litchfield; her boyfriend, Leland A. Gray, Jr. also of Walpole and many aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins and several very special friends.

A celebration of her life will be held Monday, March 3, 2014 from 5:00 to 7:00 PM in the Foley Funeral Home, 49 Court Street, Keene. Burial will be private.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Jerilyn's memory to The Susan B. , Vermont-New Hampshire Affiliate, PO Box 2496, Manchester Center, VT 05255, or to the Epilepsy Foundation, Attention: Donor Services, 8301 Professional Place, Suite 200, Landover, MD 20785.
