Obituary

Joan M. Cote, 86, of Plainville, passed away peacefully on Wednesday, March 30, 2022 at Autumn Lake Health Care Center in New Britain after a brief illness.  She now joins her beloved husband, the late George Cote, in eternal peace.

Born in Milford, ME on June 26, 1935, Joan was the oldest of four children to the late Gilman and Donna (Buchanan) Dunn.  Joan married the love of her life, George, in 1952, and moved to Connecticut in 1958, shortly after George was honorably discharged from the US Army to begin their life together.  They made Plainville their home for more than 50 years, where they raised their two children.  Joan worked in the Plainville school system for many years, and was a friendly and familiar face as a lunchroom monitor at both Wheeler and Linden St. Schools.   Additionally, she worked for the Plainville Senior Center, where she coordinated the delivering of Meals on Wheels to area residents. 

Joan is survived by her son, Bruce Cote; her daughter Donna Solis and her fiancé Jon; and her grandson Christopher Cote; and many nieces and nephews.  She was predeceased by her brothers, William, Michael, and Malcom Dunn and her aunt, Ruth Legassey.
