Brenda Jean Boutot


Rindge, NH - Brenda Jean Boutot, 78, of Rindge, NH, died peacefully with her loving family by her side on Monday, May 20, 2019, after a brief period of failing health.
Brenda was born in Madawaska, Maine on July 14, 1940, the third born daughter of Antoine and Hattie (Clavette) Boucher. Raised and educated in Madawaska, Brenda enjoyed a happy childhood and active teen years. She captained the cheerleading squad at Madawaska High School, studied piano and played trumpet in the school's marching band. She attended high school dances and enjoyed the attentions of a particular dark-eyed, charismatic young man whom she would later marry.
After graduating from high school in 1958, Brenda married Lawrence J. Boutot, the love of her life, on August 8, 1959. Together and spanning the course of 59 years, they made their home and raised a family of five children. Brenda was a loving and devoted mother and managed her home and family with tenderness and excellence. Her heart and commitment for her family has served well as a beautiful example for her children's families.
Brenda worked at Millipore in Jaffrey for over 30 years, retiring as a senior buyer at age 62. She continued on as a consultant until her official retirement two years later.
Brenda has called the Monadnock region her home, having lived in Greenville, Winchendon and Rindge, where she enjoyed sailing on Lake Monomonac and boating with her husband and grandchildren.
