    New Hampshire Union Leader (Manchester, NH) — Tuesday, September 5, 1995: Deborah Ann Leonard- Prentice, 29, of Manchester, New Hampshire

    HOOKSETT - A local woman who died after the fiery crash of a small plane in Portland, Maine, on Friday was remembered yesterday as a great lover of life and beauty. More than 400 people attended a memorial service yesterday for Deborah Ann Leonard-Prentice, 29, and her stepmother Sally Vargo Leonard, according to Father Donald Proulx, who presided over the service in Windham, Maine. Also killed in the crash at Portland International Jetport was the pilot of the Cessna 172 M, Diane W. Clark, 56, of Windham, Maine.

    Officials have refused to speculate on what caused the crash. The Associated Press reported it may take federal investigators six months to make an official determination. Prentice was with his wife when she died in the burn unit of Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston. She was transferred there after being rushed to Maine Medical Center in Portland.

    In a telephone interview yesterday, Leonard-Prentice's husband, Arthur Prentice, of 1465 Hooksett Road, said the three women had planned to fly to Chatham, Mass., on Cape Cod to have lunch.

    Leonard-Prentice was studying interior design at Hesser College and was close to finishing her degree, he said. ''Deb was an incredible lover of life and an adventurer. She was my best friend, my inspiration, my motivation,'' Prentice said. ''We lived a lifetime in the seven years we were together and that's one of the funny things that we kidded each other about all the time - that if anything ever happened to one of us we will have lived a lifetime and it will be okay. ''We had a very unique and special relationship,'' Prentice continued. ''At the Mass today we talked about that a lot. It was one of those relationships that was not put together on this earth.'' The couple moved to Hooksett in 1988 and lived on their boat on the Massachusetts coast during the summer, Prentice said.

    Leonard-Prentice grew up in the Sebago Lake area of Maine, he said. ''She was the one who kept us all moving. She was incredibly active. I mean they were flying to Chatham for lunch. That's the kind of people they were,'' he said. [She] was a lover of both animals and flowers. The family has established a memorial fund in her name to benefit an animal rescue league and a public garden. Contributions can be sent to Gorham Savings Bank in Gorham, Maine.
