1988 – 2017
Sterling– Miranda Lyn St. Jean, 28, of Porter Pond Rd., died Wednesday afternoon, October 11, 2017 surrounded by people who loved her at Wm. W. Backus Hospital. Born in Putnam, she was the daughter of Judy A. (Sharpe) Chauvette of Coventry, R.I. and Timothy R. St. Jean of Killingly.
Miranda was an amazing baker and cook, always tweaking every recipe to make it her own.
She loved all animals from dogs and cats to snakes and mice. As a little girl she would sneak all the strays into the house.
Miranda had a green thumb and worked at Logee’s greenhouse as a teenager. She took great pride in her gardening skills especially her morning glories and vegetable garden. She saw beauty where there was none and would plant flowers and trees so the rest of us could see it too.
Miranda worked for a short while as a material handler at Staples prior to becoming disabled due to her special heart.
Miranda is survived by her fiancé Brandon Deojay; her daughter Ailise Chatelle; her father Timothy and step mother Robin St. Jean; her mother Judy A.
