Gilmay Bouchard

Gilmay peacefully entered into Eternal Rest on November 27, 2023. She was born on October 2, 1937 in Cinquieme Upper Frenchville, ME.  Daughter of the late Joseph and Mary Jane (Madore) Gervais. 

She found love twice in her life. Gilmay married her first husband Sylva Chasse  Aug. 28,1958. They were married for a little over 13 1/2 years before Sylva’s passing in March 1972. They have 3 children: Brenda (Charles) Bozeman of Hampton, VA; Karen (Brian) Pelletier of Caribou, ME; and Sharon (Ivan) Williams of Fayetteville, NC. She has 7 grandchildren: Detra (Khalia) Bozeman-Boston of Dumfries, VA; Devin (D.) Bozeman of Hampton, VA,  Celanese Bozeman of Manasses, VA; Chance Bozeman of Norfolk, VA; Darren (Carla) Pelletier of  Hermon, ME;  Kaysie, (Nickolas) Dobson of Caribou, ME; and Chasse Williams of Fayetteville, NC., 6 great grandchildren: Benson, Caiden, and Noah, from Hermon ME; and Cecilia, Jonah and Jeremiah, from Caribou, ME.

Gilmay remarried on Oct 28,1989 to Reginald (Butch) Bouchard. They were married for a little over 22 1/2 years before Butch’s passing in June 2012.

Mom has many nieces, nephews, cousins, and relatives.  Knowing that we are grateful for all of our family for years of laughter, playing cards, visiting each other, and so many memories that we are sure mom cherished as much as we do.

Mom loved life.  Always humming, singing no matter where she was. We can still hear her singing French songs with our Pepere Gervais.  She was a hard worker her whole life—never gave up on life, even while facing Alzheimer’s. She got up early every morning with that first cup of black coffee. She loved playing Canasta Junction with her children, Charlemagne with the family, and Dame de Pique with her sister and losing was not an option.

Mom loved growing plants and flowers, and was really good at it.  Another hobby of mom’s was  knitting "pied chauds" for the family . She enjoyed it until she could no longer. Her faith in God was strong…and she loved angels. If you asked her, "what are you doing tomorrow," she would say, “I don't make plans.” That’s how strong her faith was, putting her trust in God, Proverbs 16:9, “ The heart of man plans his way, but the Lord establishes his steps.”

She loved laughing, and watching  "Seraphin" (an old French soap opera first on radio) and wrestling. Her laughter was infectious.  If mom ever gave you a hug, you would always feel like you were suffocating, because her hugs were  signs of true love for family. She might not have told you that she loved you, but those hugs were signs of love which will stay with us forever.

She has 14 siblings: Sylvia (D) (Alphie) (D) Roy; Lawrence (D) (Claire) (D) Gervais, Edwina (Joel) (D) Bellefleur of Madawaska, ME; Lillian (D) (Hampy) (D) Michaud; Ronaldo (D) (Thelma) (D) Gervais; Sylva (D) (Geneva) (D) Gervais; Aurella (Gilman) (D) Morin of Keegan, ME; Cecile (Rosaire) (D) Parent of Eagle Lake, ME; Juliette (D) (Louis) (D) Sirios; Berdina (D) (Gary) Blais of Manchester, NH; Patrick (D) (Kathleen) (D) Patricia (D); Lucie (Camille) (D) of St. Agatha, ME; Paul (Ginette) Gervais of Frenchville, ME; and Marie Mae (Roger) (D) Levesque of  St. Jacques, NB.

God came down and called one of his angels home. Although our hearts are heavy right now, we know you are no longer hurting. A piece  of our heart is broken and hurting right now, but, Mom, you will always be part of us.  We love you... ALWAYS!

A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at 10:00 AM on Saturday, December 2, 2023, at St. Agatha Catholic Church, in St. Agatha, ME.  Relatives and friends may greet the family Saturday morning from 8:00 AM until 9:30 AM at Michaud's Funeral Home in St. Agatha, ME.
