Emma Roy

May 29, 1925 — October 24, 2018

Emma E. Roy  93    5/29/25 - 10/24/18 Went to be with the Lord after suffering a stroke at her residence at the Overlook in Charlton.  She was surrounded by her family until she passed on Wednesday morning. She was the daughter of William and Mary Telford. A graduate of Bartlett High School in 1942.  While married to Philippe Roy, she worked for the superintendent of schools in Southbridge and resided on Everett Street in Southbridge for over 27 years.  Later she worked at Hyde Tool Manufacturing and was a member of their “Golden Girls”.  She will be missed greatly by her six children, Kathy (Kate) Goodrich and her husband Scott of Dunstable MA; Philippe Roy Jr. and his wife Mercedes of Merrimack NH; James Roy and his wife Pat of Peterborough NH; Nancy Roy of East Windsor CT; Mary (Miller) Wendus and her husband Ed of Columbia CT and Elizabeth Pettit and her husband Wes of Dudley MA.  Her 12 grandchildren, Rachel Miller, Sarah (Goodrich) Whelan and her husband Austin, Philippe Miller and his wife Laura and great grandson Brysen, Sean Goodrich and his wife Rachel, Lauren Pettit, Mark Goodrich, Keith Pettit, Allie (Roy) Kellhofer and her husband Cody, Meredith Roy, Spenser Roy, Mekayla Roy and Sadie Roy.  All remember her as their beautiful, radiant and resilient “Nanny”.  She taught them everything about love, forgiveness, positivity, tenacity, humor, graciousness and passion.  They will miss her immensely. Emma was also loved by her nieces, nephews and many friends who considered her a very special lady.    She will be remembered for her great culinary skills and her love of baking and music.  We would like to thank the Overlook and Hospice for their wonderful care of our sweet mum.  Donations can be made to the Overlook in her memory.  Her legacy of love will forever be in our hearts and minds and her sweet Irish eyes will forever be smiling.  A Memorial Service will be held at Central Baptist Church, 256 Main Street, Southbridge on Sunday, Nov. 4th at 3:00 PM where Emma was a member. <iframe id="tukios_player_512x330" allowfullscreen="true" allowtransparency="true" allow="autoplay; fullscreen" frameborder="0" height="330" scrolling="no" src="" width="512"></iframe>
