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.
