Funds Raised For Marie Boyer

You may not know her name. But chances are you saw Marie Boyer around town.

The Westport mother walked miles to several different jobs — in all kinds of weather.

One was at Little Barn. She often opened up before anyone else got there. She worked long hours, hoping to get her girls a good education. Tracy — a Staples graduate — is in college, while Tamikah is a rising high school senior.

The Haitian native spoke mostly Creole. She lived on Hales Court, with her husband and daughters.

Marie died August 10, after a brief illness. She was 48 years old.

Friends organized a GoFundMe page, raising money for funeral and memorial expenses, back to school items, college expenses and day-to-day necessities. Click here to help.

Marie’s funeral is this Saturday (August 24), 8 a.m. at the Church of the Nazarene, 146 Main Street in Norwalk.

    May God bless and condolences to her entire family.

  2. Marie and her girls came to Westport on a plane that left Haiti right after the earthquake occurred that left their neighborhood ruined and friends lost. It was a miracle and she, her husband Alix, grandmother and daughters all knew it and lived their lives celebrating life. So sad to see such a gentle and hard working family loose one so close.
    Strength and love to the family, and to all Seize the Day life is short.

  3. Dan – thank you so much for sharing this. Marie was a kind, peaceful, and joyful person and I am so lucky to have known her.
