They shared many fun times at Windemere --- along with Don and their many close condo friends. May your faith and your memories bring you comfort! Love to all. Mark and Mary Jeanne

Dear Plunkett family, I am so sorry for your loss. Your mother's hospitality, joy, and kindness always have been, and always will be, a brief yet significant part of my happy-childhood memories. I can only imagine how much you must miss her. May she Rest In Peace.

To All the Plunkett Family, It has been such a joy knowing your Dad, Don, and Mom, Blanche. I so enjoyed living across from them at the Village of Windemere condos. Your Mom and I would spend quite some time talking when she lived there and also when stopping by her condo. Your whole family is amazing and the love you have for each other is an inspiration. My husband, Sonny, and I would get a kick out of your goodbyes - waving a white hankie to each other! Blanche will be missed by all. My prayers are that grief treats you kindly as you treasure your memories. Marlene Yinger
