Janet F. (Smith) Boucher

November 28, 1922 ~ January 5, 2022 (age 99)


It is with great sadness we announce the passing of Janet Faye Boucher, beloved wife of the late Victor J. Boucher Sr. of West Brookfield MA in her 99th year. Born in Sturbridge to Homer T. and Viola F. Smith on November 28, 1922.

Behind her twinkling eyes was a vibrant woman full of class and wit. She never forgot a birthday, anniversary or special occasion and took the time to write a personal note in each card, including this past Christmas.

Janet was the loving mother of Sandra F. Coutu (Donald) and Victor E. Boucher (Brenda). Welcoming her in Heaven are her daughter, Lee Elaine Ryan 2013, and infant son Victor J. Boucher Jr.  1942. She was also predeceased by her sisters Helen Christiansen, Mary Smith, and brother Maurice Smith.

To carry on the legacy of our beloved Matriarch and leader of our 5 generations are her granddaughters, Debra St. Laurent (Jerry), Nancy Pecore (Kenneth), and Tracey Abusamra (John),  and Kim Osborne (Paul).

Great grandmother of Emilee and Sarah St.Laurent, Kelsey and Nicholas Pecore, Mikayla St.Germain (Timothy), Angela McGeary (Ryan), Jerrica Savoie, Ashley Padula, Lindsey Browning  and Justin Savoie, who predeceased her.

Great great grandmother of Elliot Savoie , Tyler McGeary, Adelaide Padula, Callon Browning and soon to arrive, Lucas St.Germain,  who she would have met this upcoming March.

Janet also leaves the Boucher clan, with many nieces, nephews, cousins and numerous loved ones.

Victor and Janet were married New Year’s Eve in 1941 at the Parsonage on Maple Street in Brookfield and would have celebrated their 80th anniversary last week.

Janet was a long-time employee at Gavitt Wire and American Optical.

For many years Vic and Janet were snowbirds in Florida and enjoyed many seasons camping in the Mohawk Trail region. Another great past time was at “The Camp” on Leadmine Road with the famous saying “Hold your tomatoes”

When one loses their elder, a library is lost and volumes of wisdom and knowledge are gone.

A special thanks to the amazing staff at Quaboag Nursing Home for the loving and compassionate care they showed Janet every day.
