Florence Boutilier Obituary

Point Aconi

It is with tremendous grief that we announce the sudden passing of Florence Christine Boutilier, age 85, cherished wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister, and friend, on Monday, January 15, 2024. Born in North Sydney on October 18, 1938, she was the daughter of the late Thomas and Florence (Murray) Standing.

Florence was a proud member of the Ladies Auxiliary of the Royal Canadian Legion, Branch 19, in North Sydney where she played plenty of darts and adored going to the dances. She enjoyed playing cards, especially with some of the other women in her family that got together frequently. She was an avid crocheter, knitter, embroiderer, and sewer. She absolutely loved to swim, especially in the ocean, but also in the beautiful Bras d’Or Lakes. She was also a fine cook, but most especially she was a fantastic wife and mother. Family was the most important thing in her life.

Florence is survived by her beloved husband of 65 years, Wallace; her children Lana (Chris) Sachs, Tommy (Brenda) Boutilier, Cheryl (Richard) Abromeit, and Joanne MacEachern; grandchildren Mitchell Eveleigh, Justin Eveleigh, Hayley Eveleigh (Austin Stewart), Sierra Abromeit, Christina (Evan) Leslie; great-grandchildren Layton Leslie, Rowan Leslie, and Dante Eveleigh; brothers Bob Standing and Tommy (Elizabeth) Standing.

Besides her parents she was predeceased by her sister, Lillian Gordon; brother Bill Standing; grandson Michael Sachs; sister-in-law Joyce Standing, and her treasured dog, Holly.

Special thanks to Werner Abromeit for his care and friendship over the last number of years.
