Marie "Rita" Boudreau

October 11, 1926 - November 3, 2012


A quiet, gentle soul, 86 years, passed away peacefully at Cowichan District Hospital in Duncan, BC on November 3, 2012 with her family by her side.

Born in Grand-Baie, Quebec into a family of 12 to Roland & Alberta Crevier.  At the age of 20 she traveled to Red Rock to visit her sister Willimine.  There she met the love of her life, Lorenzo Boudreau.  Married in 1947, they expanded their young family when they welcomed Ma’s mother and several of her sibling’s to live with them. 

A beautiful person, full of love and great patience she took on this great challenge of caring and nurturing the large family.

Ma with her husband Zoe opened their home to family and friends.

Their home was the hub of many kitchen parties, parties, dancing and great dinners.

Who can forget her blueberry pies, her tourtieres and in the words of her grandson Ryan “the greatest crepes to ever touch the lips of man.”

A woman of great faith she was a 52 year member of the CWL.  She looked forward to Monday night Bingo, camping, fishing, playing cards and Saturday night dancing.  Predeceased by her husband Lorenzo (2008) and her son Real (1989), her parents, her brothers Aza, Rene, Lucien, her sisters Jeanne-Mance, Giselle and Willimine Boudreau.  She is survived by her brother Gillis (Marie) Crevier, sisters Rolande Jacques, Gill (Romeo) Sarrasin, Darquise (Fernand) Lebel and Jeanne Hardy.

Survived by her loving children Paula (Carlo) Stocco, Duncan, BC, Laurent (Jeannine), Duncan BC, Doris (Tony) Kelso, Thunder Bay, ON, Norman (Fay), Red Rock, ON, Alain (Mercedes) Aurora, ON, Deanne (Norman) St. Pierre, Belleville, ON.

A proud Memere, she will be missed by her grandchildren and great grandchildren Tania (David) Keeler (Zak, Brock), Lynn Boudreau, Nikki Akaadom (Quayson), Angie (Chris) Gagne (Noah, Ellen), James (Sarah) Kelso (Jaxton), Daniel (Bridget) Boudreau (Hunter, Parker), Adam Boudreau, Randy Boudreau, Tawnee Boudreau, Chad St. Pierre, Ryan, Lydia & Austin Boudreau, Alex Segura.

We will always love you Ma, Memere.  We will carry you with us each day in our hearts.  We will mourn our loss but rejoice that you are in a better place.

Funeral Mass and burial to be held in Red Rock, Ontario.
