Raised and educated in North Attleboro, Nancy graduated from North Attleboro High School in 1972. Nancy did many things over the years and she poured her heart and soul into all of them.

This was especially true of her soul mate, Richard, who she married and spent 43 wonderful years with.

Nancy’s beautiful smile and trademark laugh warmed the hearts of everyone she met. She will be dearly missed by all.

Nancy is survived by husband, Richard Laviolette; son, Brett Laviolette; brother, Robert Van Ness; extended family and friends.

Nancy was the sister of the late Raymond Ripley, the late Allen “Rip” Ripley and the late Walter “Skipper” Ripley Jr.
