Paula M. (Pinault) Machado, 89 of Milford, NH and formally of Merrimack, NH and Lowell, MA. died peacefully Tuesday April 18th, 2017 at her home surrounded by her loving family. She was born September 10, 1927 in Nashua, NH daughter of the late Charles and Blanche (Santerre) Pinault. She was the beloved wife of the late Roger Machado. Paula was also predeceased by her daughter, Lisa Halpin, a sister Doris LaFrance, a brother Raymond Pinault, and a nephew John LaFrance. Paula worked for many years as the Accountant for Nashua Community College until her retirement. She was lovingly referred to as “Nana-Nana” and took great joy in gifting everyone she met with her knitted slippers. Paula was a woman always on the go and spent happy times traveling with friends and family. She even loved to make a yearly trip with her sister to Canada to purchase French Christmas cards. The beach has always been her happy place. From cottages crowded with family and friends in earlier days to quieter times at family beach homes. Paula’s love of warmer weather took her to Florida every winter where she enjoyed volunteer work, walking clubs, and social events. She will be remembered for her laugher, her sense of humor, and her kind and generous heart. She is survived and will be deeply missed by daughters Nancy Chartier and her husband Dan of Lowell, MA, Ann Page and her husband Steve of Milford, NH, and Sarah DeFreitas of Lakewood, CO.
