HUDSON - Deborah Lynn Boudreau, 44, wife of Ricky J. Boudreau, died Feb. 23, 2014, at Maine Medical Center, Portland, after a brief illness. She was born Sept. 9, 1969, in Lunenburg, N.S., Canada, the daughter of Dorothy H. (Dorey) Dolimount and the late Capt. Arthur J. Dolimount.
Debbie grew up in Lunenburg, N.S., Canada, and began a nursing career at Harborview Haven in Lunenburg. She completed her nurse's RN education and training in Yarmouth, N.S., and, after moving to Maine, worked in the Bangor area for Brewer Rehab and Living Center, St. Joseph Hospital, Eastside Rehab and Living Center and most recently at the Maine Veterans Home. Debbie was active from a young age in her home community of Lunenburg. She attended various groups from Brownies, Majorettes, Sunday School and youth groups, going on to become a Sunday School teacher. Coming from a line of great cooks, Debbie loved collecting cookbooks and trying new recipes. She never missed passing a good yard sale. She was a driving force behind her immediate family and helped anyone she could, in her home, school community, or work. Debbie also loved her many friends, she made here in Maine. She enjoyed her past few summers camping with all the gang at Parks Pond.
Surviving in addition to her husband of Hudson and her mother of Mahone Bay, N.S., are two children, Joshua Boudreau and Makayla Boudreau both of Hudson; two brothers, John Dolimount and his wife, Helen, of Lunenburg, N.S., and Robert Dolimount and his wife, Leeann, of Martins Point, N.S.; sister, Mary Dolimount of Mahone Bay, N.S.; mother in-law, Donna Boudreau of Eddington; brothers-in-law, David Boudreau and his wife, Vicki, of Holden and Roger Boudreau of Eddington; seven nephews, Daniel, Sam, James, and Isaac Dolimount, Benjamin and Charlie Dolimount and Michael Boudreau; and one niece, Brianna Boudreau. She is also survived by a large loving extended family in Nova Scotia. Deborah's family gratefully thanks the doctors, nurses and staff of Maine Medical Center, Portland for the excellent care they provided.
