Anne P. Boulanger, 94, passed away Wednesday, September 14, 2016, in home hospice care.
Anne was born in 1921 in Scranton, Pa. She was the widow of Lionel W. Boulanger, a decorated WWII veteran, gifted artist and woodworker. During the war, she was employed by Western Electric, manufacturing radios for U.S. Naval Services. Afterwards, she was a cashier for Purity Supreme supermarket, a noted astrologer and practicing spiritualist.
Anne is survived by her daughter, Jacqueline Atkinson of Gainesville, Ga.; her grandchildren, Jessica Jones, Heather Gagnon and Robert Benson; as well as seven great-grandchildren and two great-great-grandchildren.
Besides witnessing five living generations of offspring, she is also warmly remembered by surviving relatives, friends and neighbors, having a profound effect and influence on many.
Though not a follower of any established religion, she nonetheless held an unshakeable belief in the Lord, Jesus Christ and lived as well as anyone could manage in his image.
She lived a life of discipline and charity in the Christian way, drawing enjoyment from the giving to others while asking little to nothing in return. Her guiding principle was the oft-repeated parable, "We reap what we sow."
Her body will be cremated per her wishes at Concord Crematory. Also per her request, there will be no services or calling hours.
Arrangements are by Charles F. Dewhirst Funeral and Cremation Care, 80 Broadway, Methuen, MA 01844.
