When the Bolduc family moved to Winslow they were our "across the corn field" neighbors and it didn't take my sister, brothers and I long to become friends with Nancy, Elaine, Tom and Jimmy. We spent hours on end playing in each other's homes, at the nearby school playground, and putting on some very serious plays in their basement. I still remember "swimming" in Pop Bolduc's army uniform when I was cast as the traffic cop in our production of Frosty the Snowman. Our parents were so happy that we were keeping busy (and out of their hair I'm sure) that they very kindly paid to attend our production and also buy back the treats they made for us to sell. I also remember the cold winter where the corn field froze so solid that we were able to skate over to each other's houses - even one night after Christmas by the full moon. I have so many wonderful memories of my childhood and the Bolducs are so much a part of those memories. Their home was full of love, kindness (and pretty darn good food). I was lucky to see Mrs. Bolduc a few years ago when I accompanied Nancy on a visit to her mom's. It was so much fun reminiscing about all those fun days. Whenever I think of Mrs. Bolduc I see her beautiful smile and remember how very much she loved her family and lucky for me, her children's friends as well. You lived a well-derserved long life Mrs. Bolduc and will be missed by all of us who loved you right back.(Thanks to the family for the beautiful video - I smiled all the way to the end!)

I just saw Mrs. Bolduc's obit. This just breaks my heart. She and her siblings all knew my parents, so whenever I would see them (esp. the sisters), they'd just fawn all over me, and they were always so very funny. Her nephew, Patrick, was one of my classmates and longtime friends, and I know he predeceased her by only five days. While Jimmy was a classmate of my brother's, Tommy was a frequent visitor and close friend of my neighbor, Mickey Roy. He was always so nice and sweet to me (not to mention good looking). I know Connie will be deeply missed by all who knew her.

I fondly remember the first time I met Connie when Nancy took me home to meet the family in the spring of 1974. A lovely, kind lady and mother. She introduced me to the Lawrence Welk show on the black and white TV at their home in Winslow. It was so much fun sitting on the couch on Sunday nights with Connie enjoying that piece of Americana, The Lawrence Welk Show! I shall never forget her sharing that wonderful show with me.
Thinking of you all during your loss.

I am so thankful that this past summer, my sister (Dianne) and I went to see Aunt Connie. We had a lovely visit and ever the hostess, she shared her favorite candies. We reminisced about "music parties" at our parents' house and were updated about all her children. You all are in my thoughts and prayers at this sad time.

We got to know "Pop" and Connie Bolduc during the period of 1961-1963 when they were our landlords on Barton St. in Winslow. Jo Ann and I had two children, ages 2 & 3, and Jo Ann was expecting our third child in the fall of 1961. We could not have had better landlords. Pop & Connie were both so kind and helpful to all of us.when our new born daughter, Margaret, arrived on Sept. 30, 1961,Connie's motherly nature took control. With her love and attention to detail one might have observed that this new born baby girl was her child ! Connie & Pop's daughters, Nancy & Elaine would babysit our children many times and Guy and Jim were in the same age range of our Jane & John. We appreciated the times that the Bolduc children entertained the Nivison's. They were a reflection of their parent's, Connie & Pop Bolduc.
Connie, to us , was an "Angel On Earth" ! Her religious faith was very strong and Connie Bolduc lived her faith every day of her life.
Connie, enjoy your "Reunion" with "Pop" !

Love & Thanks, Jo Ann & Jack Nivison

To the entire Bolduc family,
My thoughts and prayers are with all of you at this time. Your mom was a special lady. I worked with her many years in the Winslow School system.

How do I express so much love and gratitude for being embraced into “ this family” by Pop and Connie? Us, Big Dick and Roses; from away! Total rookies of all things Maine. Pop gave us our Maine Drivers tests; made THE Best Whoopie Pies. Their household already full never failed to find a spot to share, and love on us. Connie the consummate school professional, they could never have run that place without her! We ended up settling around the corner and in these latter years; we’d embrace at Mass, both solo; me with granddaughter in tow and her incredible unfailing strong faith and warm greeting; her words and embrace reminding me of what’s important, family, faith, friends: sweet Connie rest with Pop. Job well done🌹❤️ Roses and family

When Connie and Pop lived next door in my early years I would go to their house every Friday evening to watch TV with Nancy & Elaine. My parents did not have a TV so the Bolducs shared theirs. Mrs. Connie, as we called her at the time would often make us some popcorn and we would watch shows till 9PM. Then I would go through the gate between our homes and return to my home "next door". These are just some of my memories and this is why I considered she and Pop as very significant people in my childhood. When she was pregnant with Jimmy it was time for a bigger house and they moved to Winslow. I missed going through that gate to get to their house but I was often invited to go spend time with Nancy and Elaine at their bigger house in Winslow. Seeing that obituary in the paper this morning caused me sadness but I could not help but smile as I read the obit. Safe travels Mrs. Connie and thanks for the memories.
