Patricia A. Boucher

September 30, 1935 — December 6, 2023

Templeton, MA

Patricia Ann (Mackie) Boucher, passed away on Wednesday, December 6, 2023 at the age of 88 at Alliance Healthcare of Baldwinville, MA.

Patty was born in Fitchburg, MA in 1935, the oldest child of John and Alice Mackie of Fitchburg, MA. She is the loving sister of brother John Mackie of RI (deceased), brother James Mackie of Ayer, MA, brother George and wife Angela Mackie of Leominster, MA, brother Dennis and wife Judy Mackie of Franklin, MA and sister Carol (Mackie) Weston with husband Steven Weston of Berlin, MA. Besides Fitchburg, she lived in Winchendon for over 20 years and then Gardner for about 4 years. Then with declining health, was moved to Alliance Healthcare. The place was wonderful to Patty. The family was at ease knowing that Patty enjoyed being there and the staff that assisted her daily. She was very much loved there.

Patty graduated from Fitchburg High School in 1953. She worked several jobs in the Fitchburg area. One was at Grants Department Store on Main Street. Later in life she worked at Witcomb Travel Agency in Leominster for several years. She traveled a great deal around the world, which helped in assisting her customers plan their trips. She simply loved traveling. One of her trips to St. Johns in the Caribbean, the plane got hijacked! Her story was something else. She then went to Craine Travel in Fitchburg and another Travel Agency in Westminster.

She had to retire due to health reasons. She enjoyed her home in Winchendon. Loved the birds and animals that she would see daily. The geese would stop by her brook on their way south. Deer would come and nibble at her crabapple trees and bushes. The family had some nice get togethers there.

Patty was married for a few years and had one child, Jayne-Ann Boucher, who predeceased her on April 14, 2020. This devastated Patty for the past three years. Jayne-Ann will be memorialized with Patty on Saturday, December 16, 2023.

Her love for animals was quite extensive, especially her cats. Patty and Jayne-Ann had four cats in their life time together. Her love of family was very strong. She became the head of the family after her mother died. She was loving, funny, loved to wear nice clothes and had a smile with a nice word to say for anyone she met.

Patty leaves behind three brothers, a sister, and a few sisters-in-law. Patty also leaves behind many nieces and nephews and cousins.
