Obituary for Eileen (Hanlon) Boudreau

Eileen Hanlon Boudreau died on December 16, 2017, at the Brightview Assisted Living Community in Wakefield Rhode Island, where she had lived for the past five years. She was 84 years old.

Eileen passed away peacefully with her daughter Colette by her side, listening to her beloved Luciano Pavarotti. Originally from Somerville Massachusetts, Eileen was a straight A student at Somerville High School and then worked as an Administrative Assistant at Simplex. She met Wilfrid O. Boudreau at a Catholic Singles dance, and despite his nervousness upon meeting this beautiful lady (he apparently shook throughout their first dance), she married him and moved to Maynard, Massachusetts. It was there that they raised three children, Michelle Boudreau, Colette Boudreau Stall, and Wilfrid P. Boudreau.

In Maynard Eileen worked as an Executive Secretary at Digital Equipment Corporation for many years. A lifetime devout Catholic, she was a proud and active member of the congregation at St. Bridget’s Catholic Church. All of her children graduated from St. Bridget’s School. Eileen was an accomplished piano player, entertaining many over the years with interpretations of songs like Mountain Greenery and Jackass Blues. All those who knew her loved her infectious laugh, her joyful blue eyes, and her love of a great story.

Eileen relocated to Somers in Westchester County NY in 1985 where she worked as an Executive Secretary at IBM and Reader’s Digest, the latter of which she always loved for its many literate and well-read coworkers.

Later, she and her husband retired to Chatham Massachusetts, and were members of Holy Redeemer Church, where Eileen proudly served as that Lady’s Guild President. During her tenure at the Lady’s Guild, they produced “Cooking Up a Storm In Chatham," a popular cookbook containing many of Eileen’s own delicious Italian recipes.

Eileen leaves behind her three children and six grandchildren: Spencer and Hannah Stall, and Oscar, Mack, Declan and Chase Boudreau. They all inherited her Irish twinkle in their eyes and her Italian passion for good food and great music. Eileen, aka “Mom," aka “Grandma," will be missed, but we’ll forever carry her beautiful spirit in our hearts. She was the sister of Edward Hanlon, the late Theresa Buckley, the late Mary Hegarty, the late John Hanlon, the late James Hanlon, the late Frank Hanlon and the late Margaret Roch, and is also survived by nieces, nephews and extended family.

Visiting hours Friday, December 22nd from 5:00 to 7:00pm at Acton Funeral Home, 470 Massachusetts Ave. (Rte. 111) Acton. Funeral Mass on Saturday, December 23rd at 9:00am at St. Bridget’s Church, 1 Percival Street, Maynard, with burial following in St. Bridget’s Cemetery, Great Road (Rte. 117) Maynard.
