Lynda Jean Boucher

OAKVILLE — Lynda Jean Boucher, 59, of Oakville, passed away unexpectedly Wednesday, May 29, 2019 at St. Raphael’s Hospital in New Haven after a brief illness. She was the beloved wife of Leonard Boucher.

Lynda was born October 22, 1959 in Waterbury, the daughter of the late Robert and Catherine (Norris) Schilke. She was raised in Naugatuck where she attended local schools and had been a long-time licensed beautician. She spent many years working at the Southbury Training School Barber Shop and more recently as a courier for the State of Connecticut.

She enjoyed spending time outdoors and at the beach and enjoyed cross stitching and was always happiest while spending time with her children and family.

Lynda was a member of the United Methodist Church of Watertown where she also spent several years as a Sunday school teacher. A dedicated wife, mother, sister and friend, Lynda will be greatly missed by all who were blessed to know and love her.

Besides her husband of 35 years, she leaves her two daughters, Katie Boucher of Oakville and Michelle Boucher of Bozeman, Mont.; her brother, William Schilke and his wife, Mary, of Wells River, Vt.; several nieces and nephews and her beloved pet dogs, Olive, Ruthy and Jack.
