Carol Ann (Myra) Boudreau

1940-2024

Carol Ann (Myra) Boudreau

It is with profound sadness that we announce the death of my beloved wife, our mother, grandmother and great-grandmother, Carol, who passed on peacefully to her Forever Home on the 12th day of February 2024, surrounded by her loving family. She died peacefully after an ongoing battle with Cerebellar Degeneration.

Carol went to school and lived her teen years in Bedford. Following her marriage to Bud in 1960, they traveled extensively. Bud was a member of the RCAF with transfers to Ontario, the Maritime's and Europe and Carol was always there with their children.

She was a lifetime learner and an avid reader; she attended St. FX University when she was 60 years old and received a Diploma in Ministry. This gave her the interest to get involved with Adult Learning, where she created several programs. One such program was the Grandmothers International Storytellers, enabling them to author their own stories. Four books were published, and all proceeds were donated to Adult Literacy in the Annapolis Valley. Also, she facilitated the writing of books with two other groups, one in Scott’s Bay and assisted another group at the Black Cultural Center in Cherry Brook, which earned her the first Seniors Literacy & Learning Partnership Award in 2007.

Carol always had a smile, and she was a pleasure to be with.

She was predeceased by her parents, Ida (Schnare) Myra and Arthur Myra; sister Mary Kline; brother, Brian and grandson, baby James Boudreau.

She is survived by her husband, Bud, of 63 years; sons, Brad (Julie) Morden; Michael (Marie) Canaan; Greg (Shan) Moncton; daughter, Becci (Alex Green) Montreal; sisters, Audrey Robillard, Toronto; Shirley Callis, Halifax; paternal half siblings, Dolly Davison, Kentville; Patsy Clothier, New Minas; and Connie Keefe Halifax; grandchildren, Jordan, Jake, Luc, Emma, Kayla, Chris, Meghan, Nathan, Brandon, and Maddie; great-grandchildren Lennox and Jaxson.

In keeping with her wishes, cremation has occurred through East Coast Memorial. There will be no funeral service or visitation. A celebration of her life will be held in the White Family Funeral Home, Kentville on 17 March, between 01:00 and 03:00 p.m.

We want to express our many thanks and gratitude to the staff of the Medical Assistance in Dying (MAiD) Program and a special thanks to our family and friends who supported Carol’s decision.

James 1:27
What God the Father considers to be pure and genuine religion is this:
to take care of orphans and widows in their suffering
and keep oneself from being corrupted by the world.
