Eleanor “Punky” LaLiberty CHARLESTOWN — Punky LaLiberty, 83, of Port Orange, Florida, formerly of Charlestown, passed at home on March 3, 2021. Her brother, sister, brother-in-law and loving dog, “Lil' Fella,” were by her side. Punky was born to Ernest and Mildred Benware and raised in Charlestown, New Hampshire. She was an honor graduate of the class of 1955 at CHS. Always a fun loving, high spirited woman, Punky very much enjoyed dressing up to go out for the evening with friends and dancing. She and her late husband, Sam, made a very handsome couple and were often with friends and family laughing and enjoying life. The couple moved to Florida in the 1980s but returned frequently for various special occasions and Old Home Days. Charlestown was always “home.” Sadly, Punky was predeceased by her only child, Cindylee Bashaw Bates, in 2014; and husband of 51 years, Sam, in 2018. She leaves behind her brother, Robert Benware of Ormond Beach, Florida; sister, Linda and husband Joe Rounds of Pembroke, New Hampshire, and Port Orange, Florida; nephews, a niece and four cousins. A small memorial service will be held in Florida.
