MORRIS PLAINS, N.J. – Georgette T. (nee-Rioux) Boucher, 74, passed away peacefully in her sleep at home on Tuesday, Feb. 10, after an extended illness.

She was born in Danville, on Feb. 22, 1934, to Horace and Marie-Ange Rioux. She graduated from St. Mary’s School and Lewiston High School, both in Lewiston.

She was a member of St. Christopher R.C. Church in Parsippany, N.J., where she served as a Lazarus minister and St. Mathew’s Church in Hallandale, Fla., where she served as a eucharistic minister.

She was co-founder of Hy Style Caterers of Dover, N.J., and was also employed by Vydec-Exxon Information Systems in human resources, and she retired from CNA Insurance Co. in Hanover.

She loved to bowl and enjoyed serving as president of her bowling league in Morris Plains for many years. After their retirement, she and Paul traveled extensively and never met a stranger. They enjoyed spending the winter months living in Hollywood Beach, Fla., for several years and made lasting friendships.

Left behind to cherish her memory are her devoted husband of 52 years, Paul E. Sr.; her daughter, Anne Boucher and her husband, William Glenn Colozzi, and their children, Matthew, Michael and Kimberly; her son, Paul E. Boucher Jr. and his wife, Lauren, and their children, Robert, Ryan, Jason and Alicia; and her sister, Cecile Dube and her husband, Richard.

She is welcomed into heaven by her son, Robert Paul; her parents; and her five brothers, Armand, Betrand, Donald, Roger and Leo Rioux.
