Mary Leigh (DeWitt)  Boudreau

It is with profound sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Mary Leigh (DeWitt) Boudreau, 50, of Dieppe and formerly of Sackville, NB on Saturday, December 8, 2018.  Born in Kentville, NS, Mary Leigh was a daughter of Dr. Wallace and Barbara DeWitt of Sackville, NB.

Mary Leigh was a graduate of Tantramar Regional High School, Sackville, and received a Bachelor of Arts with distinction from Mount Allison University.  She completed her Paralegal certificate from Oulton's Business College.  She pursued a career in law and was the Senior Litigation Paralegal for Cantini Law Group, Moncton.  As a student, she was active in Brownies and Girl Guides, and a recipient of the Canada Cord.  She was a member of the Sackville Swim Club, the Sackville Skating Club and the Sackville Basketball Program.  In the summers, she worked with the Keillor House, the Mt A Library and the food services.  She really enjoyed the newspaper puzzles, music, watching movies, walking, and traveling.

Mary Leigh will be dearly missed by her husband of twenty-two years, Brian Boudreau, Dieppe; her parents, Dr. Wallace and Barbara DeWitt, Sackville; her sister, Yvette (Vincent) Mullen, Saskatoon; her brother, Patrick DeWitt, Moncton; nephews, MItchell, Jonah, and Isaac; her mother-in-law, Germaine (Late Earl) Boudreau, Saint-Antoine, NB; sisters-in-law, Tina and Marilyn (Roger Tremblay) Boudreau; brother-in-law, David (Nathalie) Boudreau, as well as several nieces and nephews.

Her wonderful husband, Brian, and Mary Leigh, resided in Dieppe, NB, with their two cats.
