Bill Plante: A Tribute from Georgetown Village



Bill Plante is being remembered, rightly so, as a national news journalist and White House correspondent of national renown. Georgetown Village is here to tell you he was also a pillar of our local community.  Bill championed the efforts of our Village to promote independent living by seniors and their ongoing engagement with one another and the community. He served as a member of the Georgetown Village Board and was the chairman of our Communications Committee.

Whether interviewing Madeleine Albright or Jose Andres for us or rewriting our recruitment brochure, no task was too great or too small for him to undertake on behalf of the Village. He understood our mission and put his incredibly valuable shoulder to the wheel on the behalf of our efforts and the broader community.  With his wonderful wife Robin, he was a founding member of our Village, seeding our initial organizing efforts. Our local community is the poorer for his leaving it. We wish his family our deepest condolences, but recognize a life well and meaningfully lived.

“My husband Guy had been diagnosed with Alzheimer disease and I was wondering how I would cope with this. As Guy’s condition progressed, I realized what a great help the Village was. Volunteers did grocery shopping for us, yard work, handiwork around the house, provided transportation, etc. In these circumstances, to know that the Village was a phone call away was a tremendous morale booster and helpful relief.

Then Guy passed away, peacefully, at home. For Guy we joined the Village. Now, of course, Georgetown Village is still here, for me. I feel the experience was rewarding and… priceless!”
