Anna Bouchard
1959 - 2018
OAKLAND - Anna Maria Bouchard, 58, of Oakland, earned her wings on Friday June 29, 2018 after a valiant fight with brain cancer. She was born in Waterville on Sept. 27, 1959, a daughter of Patricia (Corey) and John Johnson. She was a graduate of Winslow High School where she enjoyed playing basketball, field hockey and swimming. She went on to college where she learned to become a drafting detailer, specializing in steel (which she claimed made her heart "pitter patter"). This knowledge eventually allowed her to own her own business and work at home to raise her tiny humans.
As Anna's children grew she actively supported all their interests, became a sports booster, and could often be found working in the concession stand or assisting coaches with whatever request they had for her. Always one with a cheerful smile, an amazing laugh and a positive attitude, Anna's love for people was always quite apparent. Family always came first though, and she was proud to be her husband's best friend.
Early in their marriage, Anna and her husband, Dana, were very avid golfers and played almost every day. They passed their love for golf onto their children at a very young age, and eventually also to their first grandchild. Anna also enjoyed camping, planting flowers, Paint Nites with the girls, reading, crocheting and ALL things chocolate. But most of all, she loved her family and enthusiastically spoiled her grandchildren. Anna will be greatly missed for all the love she gave and the opportunity she gave all of us to love such a kind and strong woman. Winnie the Pooh says it best, "how lucky am I to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard".
Anna is survived by her husband of 38 years, Dana Bouchard of Oakland; her daughter Cindy Bailey and her husband Phil and their children: Trent, Izzy and Ryder of Mount Vernon; her son Mike Bouchard of Oakland; her mother Patricia Rancourt and her husband Dave of Winslow; her sister Linda Marshall and her husband Paul of Bethel; her sister Terry Breton and her husband Blane of Waterville; her brother John Johnson and his wife Lisa of China; her sister Jody Leary and her husband Chuck of Winslow; her sister-in-law Donna Whitney of Farmington; as well as many beautiful nieces and handsome nephews. Anna was predeceased by her father John Johnson, her Nana Cora Corey and her uncle Vinny Corey.
A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated on Friday July 13, 2018 at 11 a.m., at Notre Dame Catholic Church, 112 Silver St., Waterville with burial following in St. Francis Catholic Cemetery, 78 Grove Street, Waterville.

Earlier this year, Anna and Dana had the opportunity to go to Florida thanks to The Dream Foundation, an organization that grants wishes to adults with terminal illnesses. Their trip truly was a dream, and Anna would have wanted to help grant more wishes to those just like her.
