OBITUARY - Lindsay Dawn Paradis, age 26 of Goffstown

Dateline Goffstown, NH


Our beloved Lindsay Dawn Paradis passed away unexpectedly on Friday, November 4, 2016.  She was just 26 years old.


Lindsay was born on the delightful spring day of June 5, 1990, the fifth and final child of Mary and Don Paradis of Goffstown, NH.  She was the only girl in the brood, and grew up tall and strong in the midst of the love and playful teasing of her four big brothers.


Her close family members referred to her as Lindsay Doodlebug.


She graduated from Goffstown High School in 2008 where she was a cheerleader— a sport she began all the way back in second grade.


Lindsay had a passion for the outdoors, especially with a fishing pole in her hands and she loved pigs. She also enjoyed shopping—a pastime she shared with her mom.


Lindsay relished time spent with her young nephew and niece and was a constant and joyful presence in their lives.


In addition to her parents, Lindsay is survived by her partner of seven years Joe Cousins of Goffstown; brother Ryan Paradis, his wife Anna, and daughter Caroline of Reading, MA; brother Eric, his partner Amber May, and his son Connor of Goffstown; brother Kevin and wife Erika of Manchester; brother Scott of Goffstown; and aunts, uncles, cousins and friends too numerous to list.


Calling hours will be Tuesday, November 8, from 2 PM to 4 PM, and again from 6 PM until 8 PM at French and Rising Funeral Home 17 South Mast St., Goffstown.


A funeral will be held Wednesday, November 9 beginning at 10 AM at St Lawrence Catholic Church, Goffstown, followed by burial at Shirley Hill Cemetery. For more information or to sign an online guestbook go to
