Deborah Katherine Bouchard
December 1, 1956 - May 26, 2023

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our loved one, Deborah Bouchard in the evening on May 26, 2023 at the Lake of the Woods District Hospital in Kenora Ontario. Deborah is survived by her husband, Phil Bouchard, children Mandy Bouchard (Karl Liznick), Heather Duchominsky (Steve Davis), Kathleen Bouchard and Travis Bouchard (Nicole Giorgio), mother Dolores Martin, sister Rebecca (Les) Alcock, brothers Scott Martin (Joan Tate) and Dana Martin, as well as a large extended family. She will be deeply missed by her grandchildren, Sullivan Loane, Gage and Julie Bouchard, Ellie and Katie Duchominsky and all the fur babies, who she adored with all her heart. Deborah was born on December 1, 1956 in Thunder Bay Ontario. In 1975 she moved to the Keewatin area where she met Phil Bouchard, settled down and had 4 children, of whom she loved dearly. After staying home to raise her children she graduated high school and achieved her Office Administration at Confederation College in Kenora, Ontario. She went on to work for Norcom Telecommunications, R&S Video, Ojibway Tribal and Family Services and Aboriginal Child and Family Services making several friends along the way. Phil and Debbie were together for 48 years and married for 42 making many memories along the way, in particular the countless family gatherings where she enjoyed hosting and entertaining her large family, mostly at their home in Keewatin. Debbie loved the warmth of the sun, the sand in her toes and all creatures big and small, from her pets including the fish, hermit crabs, cats and dogs, Sassy, Chico and Lambton. She had a connection with nature and a love for plants. She would take care of the birds by feeding them each season despite the bear visits and always made sure the humming birds were well taken care of. She also really enjoyed talking about and collecting prehistoric objects, her favourite dinosaurs being the velociraptors which she talked about often to her son and grandkids. She was a proud wife, mother, grandmother, daughter, sister, aunt, cousin, who made sure those around her carried good values, morals and respect or she would make sure to call you out on it. She adored her grandchildren whom she loved to spend time with and spoil. She will be remembered for her big heart and willingness to always give of herself before thinking of her own needs. Funeral will take place on Saturday July 1, 2023 being held at St. Louis Church in Keewatin, ON at 1:00 pm followed by a small luncheon in the St. Louis Parish Hall. Special thank you to the staff at the Lake of the Woods District Hospital for their kindness, respect and assistance in keeping our loved one comfortable in her final hours
