Pauline Y. Bouchard, 97, of Berlin, NH died peacefully on Sunday, April 23, 2023 at The Heron House in Cumberland Foreside, ME. The daughter of the late Joseph and Dorilda (Pelletier) Morneau, she was born in Berlin, NH on November 21, 1925. For the past two and a half years she resided at Stroudwater Lodge, an assisted living community in Westbrook, ME.
She was a Registered Nurse who graduated from the St. Louis Hospital School of Nursing. As a Public Health Nurse for the Berlin Public Health Department, she visited patients in their homes and took great pride in helping to address the needs of families, as well as educating them about how to maintain their health. She particularly enjoyed teaching new mothers how to care for their infants.
Pauline spent her life as a caregiver, working as a private duty nurse, as well as attending to the needs of immediate and extended family as well as neighbors, friends, and anyone who might need care that she could render. Highly competent and empathetic, she was the ultimate professional.
Members of her family include daughters Ann Bouchard and Colonel Amy Bouchard, USAF retired; grandsons Bobby and Andrew Livingston; grand-daughter-in-law, two great-grandchildren, nieces, and nephews.
Her husband, Hubert Bouchard, died in 2021. She was also predeceased by her sisters Therese Morneau, Cecile Parent, Jeannette Pinette, and by her brothers Armand, Roland, Albert, René, Philip, Edgar (Charlie), and Robert (Bob) Morneau.
