Deborah A. Boutiette, 57, of Littleton

Littleton – Deborah A. (Cox) Boutiette, 57, of Littleton, passed away unexpectedly Monday, Aug. 18, 2014, surrounded by her loving family.

She was born July 4, 1957, in Hudson, daughter of the late James A. Cox and survived by her mother, Lillian A. Cox, of Hudson.

She is survived by her loving husband, John R. Boutiette, whom she was married to for 28 years. She was the devoted mother of Christopher J. Boutiette, Nicole M. Boutiette, and John J. Boutiette, who all loved her so very much. She was survived by her sister, Jo-Ann M. Hayes of Hopedale; her husband, Michael Hayes; and their son, Deborah's nephew, Alexander R.

Deborah graduated from Hudson High School in 1975 and went on to obtain her Associates Degree. Out of college, she worked at Data General, as an executive secretary and in the HR Department. She later became a beloved Special Needs Assistant at Russell Street School, where she worked for 15-plus years. She also worked a second job at Kimball Farm in the office, where she was loved by all.

She was the rock of the family and was known as the “Mother Hen.” Her selflessness and bubbly personality, as well as her ability to give without expecting anything in return, made her a beautiful soul. She touched so many people's lives with her kind words, beautiful smile, and contagious laughter.

Things she enjoyed included gardening with her husband and spending time with her family. She also enjoyed cooking and country music. Christmas was her favorite time of the year, a time of giving. She will be dearly missed by all.

Family and friends may attend calling hours Sunday, Aug. 24, from 1-4 p.m., at the Tighe-Hamilton Funeral Home, 50 Central St., Hudson (www.tighehamilton.com).

  1. To all of Deb’s family…..I worked with Deb for 4 years at RSS as an assistant as well. I cannot tell you how much I loved Deb and how my heart is with you all! You must know that she loved all of you unconditionally, and spoke of you often. She was always such a great pal to work with, and always had my back. She was unselfish in so many ways.
    My sister passed at age 47, and the only way to look at this all, is that there could have been something worse off in store for her. That’s the only way I can wrap myself around these young, beautiful souls that leave us so soon. God takes the good one’s too early, that is for sure. I’m truly sorry, and will pray for you and always think wonderful thoughts of Deb. Be strong and continue on, as she would want you to.

  2. To Deb’s family,

    I spent several years volunteering in the Littleton Schools with Deb at various events and attended many school and sports events while our kids were growing up. I enjoyed spending time with her. She was always so much fun. I will remember her. You are all in my prayers at this difficult time.
