Aline M. Bouchard

October 1, 1926 — November 9, 2019

FRANKLIN - Aline M. Bouchard age 93, passed away peacefully on Saturday, November 9, 2019 at Franklin County Rehab Center with her loving family by her side.

She was born in Highgate Center on October 1, 1926 to the late Omer & Yvonne (Plante) Laroche.

Aline was one of nine children raised on the family farm. She religiously practiced her faith and was involved for many years with St. Marys Catholic Church in Franklin where she taught religious education for many years and helped with many wonderful church dinners, Church of the Nativity and the Ladies of St. Anne in Swanton. Aline will always be remembered for her delectable baked goods, especially Memeres Maple Creations. Seeing family and friends gather over food and laughter was the core of Alines family foundation. Maple dumplings in the Bouchard Family Sugarhouse will always be associated with fond memories of her, as they originated from the family recipe.
