Anne (Boutin) Marini, age 87, of Concord MA. Saturday 6/26 after a lengthy illness passed peacefully in her sleep surrounded by her loving family. Born in Quincy, MA she was the daughter of Russell and Marion (Powers) Bouton.
Anne worked at Digital Equipment Co from June 1969 to May 1992. She raised her family in Hudson MA and moved to Holyoke MA upon retirement. Anne made friends everywhere she went. She enjoyed going to the senior center in Holyoke and having lunch with her friends who jokingly called her Queen Anne. She even taught a yoga class at the center.
Anne had a passion for travel. She took many trips to locations across the US and around the world. A few of her favorite trips included a bus tour of the National Parks, a cruise to Russia and a visit to Egypt. She was a caring, compassionate woman who donated to many charities. She was also a staunch Democrat who could talk politics for hours.
She moved to Concord MA in 2017. She loved to sit on the porch and look at her own special garden and watch the birds and the other animals that might happen to pass through the yard. She also learned how to Facetime through the pandemic which allowed her to enjoy the first year of her great-grandson’s life as well as keep in touch with her grandchildren.

Her grandchildren Lisa Belisle of Ludlow MA, Eric Belisle and his fiancé Charlie Rinaldo of Corona CA, and Elizabeth Coard, her husband Mackie and their son Theodore of Ashland MA.
