A much long-awaited HOMEgoing was finally given to our beloved Mom and Grandmother early Wednesday morning, December 23, 2020. After living with years of stroke complications and later fighting cancer, Mom is rejoicing, free at last, face to face with her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!

Joining three older siblings, Addie, age 89, was born August 21,1931 to her parents Charles and Katherine (Cuff) Bouchard in their family farmstead house in the Sears Creek area just outside of Savage. Her education was with the Savage schools, except for attending one year of high school in Sidney, before returning to Savage High School and graduating in 1949. She also attended two years at St. Paul Bible Institute.

Mom had met her future husband while becoming close friends with a few of Dad’s sisters in her childhood days, and in the summer of 1951, she married Roy and to this union eight children were born.

Mom baby sat several children over a period of years before beginning work as a nurse’s aide with GMC, a job she thoroughly loved. After retiring from the hospital, she worked as a private home healthcare worker, and continued with that until a stroke forced her into her final retirement. She was a very strong woman, living independently for almost nine years with the limitations of a stroke, and later cancer. Her favorite activity the last several years was when she was able to get together with her family.

Addie is survived by her children Sharon (Ed) Williamson of Glendive and their children Shaun (Angie) Williamson, Shelley (Travis) Palmer and Shay Williamson; Clinton (Cheryl) Almond of Valrico, Fla. and their children Renee (John) Miller and Katie Almond; Beverly (Scott) Chelgren of Dickinson and their children Jamie (Jim) Riordan, Trey (Kara) Chelgren, Tyler (Erin) Chelgren and Jentre (Andrew) Strong; Gordon (Dani) Almond of Glendive and their children, Shane (Lisa) Almond, Brad Egeness, Jackie (Sterling) Mullet, Jenni Almond (Brandon) and Josh Almond; Betty Lou (Alex) Eggert of Glendive and their children Tiffani (John) Clark, Ashley (JR) Bagwell and Austin Eggert (Deon); Janine (Steve) Babb of Glendive and their children Jenna (Evan) Thompson, Cody Babb (Carrie), Quentin Babb, Ryan Babb and Braden Babb; Ruth (Brad) Dugger of Glendive and their children Jessica (Kenny) Lewey, Celeste (Severon) Carlson, Travis (Jacque) Flach and Michael (Jasmine) Flach; Debbie Cooper of Casper, Wyo. and children Jordan Cooper, Katelyn Cooper, Kristen Cooper and Ashlyn Cooper. She is also survived by her sister-in-law, Florence Dvorak; 45 great-grands and numerous nephews and nieces.
