It is with heavy hearts that we announce the unexpected passing of Leah Melissa Rivet, aged 38. Saturday, November 2, 2019, our beloved daughter, mother, sister, aunt and friend was taken long before her time.
Leah was raised and is survived by mother Joanne Penerian and step-father Arthur Penerian as well as father Mark Rivet and step-mother Irene Rivet. Born February 14, 1981, Leah grew up in Manchester/Hooksett NH and committed over twenty years to the field of healthcare as she was full of compassion and empathy for others. She leaves behind her beloved children Stephan Perron and Skyla Perron whom she cherished. She is also survived by siblings J.R. Penerian, Jessica Provost, Jeremy Penerian and Brittany Rivet. Leah will be remembered as a fun loving and down to earth aunt to six nieces and nephews who will never forget her contagious laugh.
Leah was loved by many as a loyal friend and trusted confidante. She was at her happiest when spending time with her family by the fire on a summer night and also enjoyed the ocean breezes of the Gulf Coast. She lived like she was dying, loved loud music, Halloween, her pets and a good New England snowstorm. Leah’s love for life and her unconditional acceptance of others will be deeply missed by many as her time with us has been cut short.
A private celebration of life will be scheduled at a later date.
