Our beloved mother, Mary Elizabeth McLean Bousquet who was born in Bellows Falls, VT passed away on June 2, 2017. She was 93 years old and resided in Pinellas County for 60 years after moving from Chicopee Falls, MA. She was preceded in death by her husband of 38 years, Rosaire Bousquet. Mary retired from E-Systems after 29 years of service and had the opportunity to meet several astronauts while working on NASA projects. She was a loving mother to her 3 children, Sharon Smith (Tracy) ) of Maitland, FL, Denise Lowe (Mark) of Pinellas Park, FL and her son, Dr. Joseph Bousquet (Gyda) of Albuquerque, N.M. and her sister Doris Bessette (Raoul) of Leesburg, FL, who she raised. Her joys in life included quilting, crocheting, boating, fishing and sharing her butterfly garden with students, volunteering at Sacred Heart School in Pinellas Park, FL, where she was a member of the Church. She was a lifelong member of the American Legion in Bellows Falls, VT and always very patriotic. Her greatest joy was her grandchildren, Jeff, Shelley, Jessica and Melissa. They were so enriched by her example and unconditional love. She was a wonderful role model, nurturer and care giver. She will surely be missed. In lieu of flowers, please make donations to the Suncoast Hospice Care Center.
