Lona Patricia Boutilier

It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Lona Patricia (Boss) Boutilier, 65, of Amherst, and formerly of Springhill, at the Cumberland Regional Health Care Centre on Wednesday, November 7, 2018.  Born in Toronto, Lona was a daughter of the late Wilfred and Marjorie (McSavaney) Boss.

Lona enjoyed playing darts and crib at the 50 Plus Club.  She often looked forward to singing with her Uncle Aubrey, in Tidnish.  She loved her family and enjoyed her trips to Robin's Donuts with them.

Lona will be sadly missed by her husband of ten years, Jerry Boutilier, of Amherst; a daughter, Monica (Terry) Penny, Fort Saskatchewan, AB; two grandchildren, Danielle and Alex; sisters, Debbie (Ralph), Southampton, NS, Kim (Danny), of Amherst, and Venus (Darrin), of Cole Harbour, NS; two brothers, Ivan (Heather), of Springhill and Brandon, of BC, as well as several nieces and nephews.

Besides her parents, she was predeceased by a brother, Donnie.
