Lorraine Anne Boutilier

July 12, 1955February 11, 2021

It is with great sadness and heavy hearts, we the family regret to announce the passing of our mother, sister, niece, aunt and friend, Lorraine Anne Boutilier (Comeau) 65 of Halifax on February 11th, 2021. Born in Yarmouth County, she was the daughter of the late Elizeè and Georgina (Deveau) Comeau.

After growing up in Mavillette and Digby, she spent a lot of her childhood at the Mavillette Beach with her family. Lorraine was a CCA with Canadian Red Cross for over 10 years and a member of the Ladies Auxiliary, the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 90, Waverley, and the Clan Lamont Society of Canada. She enjoyed walking, traveling with friends and site seeing. She was a wealth of knowledge, an avid reader, and loved her search and finds, crosswords and coloring.

She was always happy to share a cup of tea, and a laugh, and if you missed a date, she held you to it. She made friends where ever she went, including bus stops and always carried those people with her. She loved phone chats with her children and playing games with her grandsons who affectionately called her “Nana B”. Even when times were tough, she always looked on the bright side and was laughing. In some circles she was known “famously” as “Marilyn Munroe”.

Lorraine is survived by her Son Jason Boutilier (Mercedez), Daughter Ashley Boutilier-Collins (Taylor), Brothers, Arthur Deveau, James Comeau (Donna) Joseph Comeau (Kathy), Gerry Comeau, David Comeau (Charlene) and her two grandsons Sondyn and Skylar Lavoie Boutilier, as well as many other family and friends.

The family would like to thank the staff at Arborstone Enhanced Care and the Dialysis unit at the QEII Halifax for the compassion and care shown to her over the years. A private service will be held with her family at a later date. Memorial donations can be made in Lorraine’s name to Diabetes Canada or The War Amps Canada.

I am sure going to miss our chats and your bubbly personality. Your smile would light up the room. You always remained positive no matter what was thrown in the mix. Rest easy

I met Loraine about 8 years ago when I met Linda Alley, because if you were going to be Linda's friend...Loraine came as a package deal. They were the bestest of friends. There were times Linda and Loraine would drop by when I was living there on their Many many day trips and road rides together. Loraine always had a big smile on her face..the stories and laughter they shared everything they were together was never a dull moment. Loraine had a heart of gold. Was the nicest person you would ever meet. She was just like a kid in a candy store every time Linda and I would visit her in nursing home. We would come barring homemade goodies and it was just like Christmas for her. I will really miss those visits. Over the years Loraine became a good friend and I thank you Linda for sharing your bestie with me. She will always have a place in my heart.
Fly High My Friend
And don't stop dancing.
Love you Girly
Miss you already.

Was saddened to hear of Lorraine's passing. Angela, Danielle and I knew her from dialysis where she was always eager to share conversation, a smile of encouragement and a laugh. Even with all of her troubles in the past few years, she was always a bright light to those around her.

Was saddened to read of her passing, she was a special person
always with that lovely smile that touched the hearts of all who
knew and loved her.
She went through many difficult times and never complained,
she will always have a special spot in my memories as one I never
knew in a personal way but felt close with in thoughts and prayers.
May God grant comfort and peace as you deal with your loss.

I write these memories with a very heavy ❤ Lorraine & I go back many many years & have made alot of memories & some secrets which I will always cherish, from having coffee together, hitching to dances on Saturday nights, ( in our much younger years) our lunches out for her favorite as Lorraine would say Clams no fries, shopping , her trip to Maine to visit Steve & I. Lorraine & I shared many road trips which she was always up to, Digby, PEI, Annapolis Valley, Meteghan, French Shore to her birth place, Yarmouth, Bridgetown, Upper Grandville. When Lorraine couldnt travel anymore and health issues kept her close to home we had many visits at the QE2, her apartment & the many visits @ the nursing home, to see her smile when she seen us coming with coffee & many treats. Lorraine I certainly miss our daily phone chats, your laugh, but most of all I miss my very dear friend You. Until we meet again Lorraine fly high ❤
