Dorothy B. (French) Bouldry of East Bridgewater, Fort Lauderdale, Fla., and Mobile, Ala., died peacefully Nov. 7, at the age of 105. Dorothy was born in Northhampton Oct. 26, 1905, and was the loving daughter of the late Aiden and Georgiana (Bruce) French. She was the oldest of eight children, two brothers, Aiden and Ian French and the late Gladys Shattuck, Ruth Hurlbut, Georgie Holton, Thelma Miller and Abby Glazier. She was the loving mother of Muriel A. Hudson of Arizona and Augustus E. Bouldry Jr. of Bridgewater; proud grandmother of Sandra, Ronald, Wayne, Marilyn, Pamela, Susan and Elizabeth; 13 great-grandchildren; and nine great great-grandchildren; and many nieces and nephews. She was a graduate of Northfield High School and in 1923 she was married in East Bridgewater to Augustus E Bouldry. She was a homemaker, but during World War II, she helped the war effort by working at the Whitman Foundry, where her husband worked. Gus and Dorothy raised their two children in East Bridgewater. Their house on Chestnut Street was known for its beautiful African violets, blueberry bushes, vegetable gardens and roadside stand. She always remained a faithful fan of the Boston Red Sox. In the early 1970s, after 50 years living in East Bridgewater, they retired to Fort Lauderdale, Fla., where Dorothy and her husband did volunteer work for the Holy Spirit Teaching Mission and in 1979 they moved to Mobile, Ala., where they volunteered at the New Wine Magazine. After her husband's death, Dorothy worked in the mail department of Integrity (Hosanna) Music in 1985 retiring from Integrity after 20 years at the age of 100. She loved to bring cookies and candy for her co-workers to snack on. She moved to Bridgewater in 2008 to live with her son Augustus E. Bouldry and wife Edna for a little over two years before entering Sachem Skilled Nursing in East Bridgewater. She will always be known for crocheting baby afghans for all the new babies of co-workers, friends and family. She was an avid reader of the Bible and Christian books. Dorothy will be remembered as a praying woman believing to be a blessing whenever and wherever she could. Her many long years leave family, friends and co-workers with a memorable legacy of a priceless woman, a loving mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, great great-grandmother and aunt.
