Text size

Millinocket - Alice Rosalie Boynton, 87, passed away Thursday, February 23, 2017.
She was an amazing wife, mother, grandmother, role model, and so much more. She was born January 1, 1930, in Millinocket, the daughter of John Leo and Ella (Walls) McFarlane. She is a 1947 graduate of Stearns High School. She created a beautiful family and shaped so many lives throughout her journey. She was active in the community as a hospice volunteer, with the Katahdin Area Support Group, St. Andrews Episcopal Church; as well as a variety of local causes. Alice's most cherished times were the days at camp on Ambejejus Lake with family and friends. She loved quilting, sewing, crafting, ceramics, gardening, making Teddy Bears and Bunnies. She is most remembered for baking everyone's favorite sweets and hosting tea parties with her children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren. She had the most loving heart, especially for the love of her life for 63 years, Dr. Harold Boynton, who she tirelessly cared for during his 10 year battle with Alzhiemers.
She is survived by her seven children, Harold S. Boynton, Jr. and his partner Anne Ganem of Levant, Dr. Scott Boynton and his wife Carol of Lone Tree, CO, Rebecca Boutaugh and her husband Stephen of Turner, Aaron Boynton of Waterville, Kevin Boynton and his partner Michelle Simon of Millinocket, Dr. Matthew Boynton and his wife Suzanne of Duxbury, Massachusetts, Dr. Brian Boynton and his wife Marcy of Cumberland; as well as her 13 grandchildren and 11 great grandchildren. Alice was predeceased by her brother John "Jack" McFarlane, and sisters Leona Rice, Bernetta Trainor, Patricia Dunn, Mabel Sawyer, Anna Nerney, Janice McFarlane, and Gladys Taylor. The family sends a special thank you to her caregiver, Danielle Berry, who has been a caring and trusted friend over the past few years.
"We love you to the moon and back Nana, please give Papa the biggest bear hug from all of us. Rest in the sweetness of peace."!
