Rose B. Morgan
Rose B. Morgan
of Redding, CT formerly of Ipswich,
passed away on December 3, 2020 at the age 55. To those both far and wide,
she was known affectionately as Posie.
Beloved daughter of Rose Converse Morgan of Wenham
and the late Hewitt Morgan, Jr.
She had the gift of making every person she
encountered feel special and her beauty was matched only by her warm heart
and unrelenting giving to others. Posie lit up the room. Her eyes were the
color of a perfect summer sky and her smile was incandescent. We will
remember her amazing courage and valiant fight against her year-long
battle with mental illness. It is incumbent upon us to serve Posie’s
legacy by giving back to others and filling each day with love and
Posie attended Shore Country Day School in Beverly,
St. Marks School in Southborough, and the University of Vermont, Class of
1987. After graduation, Posie moved to Boston and began her professional
career in sales and soon thereafter moved to New York City.
Posie married Dave Daignault in 1996 and the couple
moved to Redding, CT where their son Max was born in 2000. They welcomed
their daughter, Casey, 17 months later. Posie loved her children dearly
and was so immensely proud of them and their accomplishments.
Posie began a career in real estate where she
quickly became a top producer at Coldwell Banker. Her love of people and
strong work ethic made her a natural. She was adored by her clients and
found success regardless of how the market fluctuated. Posie served on the
Ridgefield Board of Realtors and was an active fundraiser at New Pond Farm
in Redding, CT. She protested for sensible gun laws and marched with the
“pink hats” in Washington, D.C.
Posie is survived by her mother, Rose C. Morgan;
devoted husband of 24 years, Dave Daignault; children, Max and Casey
Daignault; sister and brother-in-law, Wendy and Peter Richardson; sister,
Laura K. Morgan; brother-in-law, Marty Daignault (Anne); sister-in-law,
Julie Daignault; nieces, Elizabeth R. MacLaughlin and Katherine Daignault;
nephews, Christopher and Andrew Richardson, and Lucas Daignault;
godchildren, Henry and Eliot Gomez.
