On May 6, 1966, Mary wed the love of her life, John H. Boutelle, of Phillipston where they raised their family until John’s death in 2011. They celebrated 45 years of marriage, but Mary never removed her wedding ring.

Mary lived in Phillipston for nearly 50 years and was a Sunday school teacher and worked at the bazaar for many years.

Mary retired from Starrett’s for over 30 years working in Dept. 8 where she befriended two wonderful women, Romona Hubbard of Petersham and Anita Cleveland formerly of Royalston. They shared many fond memories over the years and their friendship was cherished by Mary.

Mary loved her flower gardens and being outside. She enjoyed camping with her family for many years at Wagon Wheel Campground in Warwick, MA.
