Beverly Mae Plasse, 86, of Windsor, beloved wife of the late Joseph Emile Norman Plasse, passed away peacefully on Thursday, May 3, 2018, in Manchester. Born in Hartford on May 6, 1931, daughter of the late George and Ruth (Perrin) Gould, she was raised in Windsor and was a graduate of John Fitch High School, Class of 1949. After high school, Beverly continued her education at the Bellevue Hospital School of Nursing in New York City, NY. She never forgot her training there and throughout her career, she proudly wore her Bellevue Hospital nursing cap which distinguished her from her colleagues. Beverly worked at the Mountain View Convalescent Home in Windsor for over 30 years and in her later years served as the Director of Nursing. While at Mountain View, she ran the Nurse's Aid program which trained Windsor High School students in various skills related to nursing. She took great pride in the mentorship she provided to many young people over the years, many of whom went on to be nurses themselves. After her retirement, she returned to work at Kaiser Permanente where continued to work as an RN for several more years. She was an active member of Trinity United Methodist Church in Windsor where she also served as a member of the United Methodist Women's Club as well as a member of several Bible study groups over the years. In her spare time, she enjoyed quilting, tending to the flower and vegetable gardens around her home, and taking care of her cats and Irish Setters that she bred for many years. Her love of family was frequently demonstrated in the many quilts that she specially made for each of her children and grandchildren. Beverly also enjoyed travelling and had lived all over the world as a young woman following her husband throughout his military career. She made several close friendships during that time, many of which she maintained throughout her life. She leaves a son, Richard A. Plasse and his wife Martha Jane of East Hartford; two daughters, Patricia Stack and her husband John of Windsor and Mary Kidwell and her husband Michael of Windsor Locks; a brother, Clayton Gould and his wife Elaine of Manchester; a sister, Marion Brookman of South Windsor; eight grandchildren; and eight great-grandchildren. Besides her husband she was predeceased by a daughter, Susan A. Plasse; a sister, Elizabeth "Betty" Matthews; and two brothers-in-law, Richard Matthews and Edward Brookman.
