Newburyport, MA - Patrick John Boudreau, born on March 11, 1997 of Newburyport, Mass. passed away unexpectedly on August 11, 2020 at McLean Hospital, after an ongoing struggle with mental illness. He is survived by his parents, George and Susan Boudreau, brother and best friend Billy, aunts, Georgia Kacher, Eleni Kacher, and Angela Ackroyd who have been by his side during his most sad times, grandparents, George and Connie Boudreau, grandmother, Sonia Kacher, step-grandmother, Andrea Jones and many aunts, uncles, cousins and friends and his cat, Fiona. Patrick lived with compassion, curiosity, and courage, along with an unrelenting wit and dry humor. He had an extensive network of friends from around the world - a network that held him dear and looked after him. An avid consumer of news and politics, Patrick was always quick to share his thoughts and seek opinions. He enjoyed Russian novels, history, fishing, hockey, McDonalds and whoopie pies. Patrick was an honors student at University of Massachusetts Lowell studying Computer Science. Patrick was a kind and beautiful soul - he will be deeply missed by his family and friends. It is impossible to face the harsh reality of living without our Patrick in our lives. Patrick had worked long and hard to overcome his mental illness. It is essential to acknowledge and honor the progress he made while recognizing the struggle and toll it had on him. Mental illness is a silent epidemic. It will only be solved if we all acknowledge it and give it the attention and resources it deserves. This tragedy is a reminder that we as individuals need to show kindness to all - to talk, to listen, and to hear without judgement. It is also a reminder that we as a society need to better serve those that cannot always advocate for themselves. We need to fund mental illness treatment and recovery. We need services to facilitate active community participation and integration. Most importantly, we need to end the stigma associated with mental illness. This population is one that deserves attention and support; it is a population of incredible people, all too often leaving this world too early. "The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen." - Elisabeth Kübler-Ross In lieu of flowers, please consider donating in Patrick's memory to the National Alliance of Mental Health - Massachusetts https://namimass.org/donate/ Services will be private to the family.

Amesbury - Mary Ellen Steeves (Curran) of Amesbury, MA passed away Tuesday, July 27th surrounded by her loving family. Words from her family: When describing our wife and mother, some might use adjectives like outspoken, opinionated and fiercely bold. And she was all of those things. She was passionate on many topics and didn't back down on her views. She was also the most generous person we've known, quick to put out a feast of food with the mere mention of someone coming to visit. She would, as the saying goes, give you the shirt off her back. She loved having a house full of guests, especially her kids, their friends and her "darlings" which she lovingly called her grandchildren. Her door was wide open for anyone needing a place to stay or even live. She was the ultimate host. Our wife and mother was a lover of loud music, animals and all things in nature and wanted to be outside as often as possible, even on the coldest winter days. She had city grit from growing up in South Boston and farmers blood from her years living in Maine. She would work in her gardens for hours on end even up until her last day. Her limitless energy was inspirational. We don't know anyone else like her, and we probably never will. To say she was the center of the family is an understatement. Losing her will leave a hole in all of our hearts forever. Mary is survived by her husband of 58 years, G. Scott Steeves of Amesbury, MA, her five children, G.Scott Steeves, Jr. and wife Madelyn (Youngman) of Framingham, MA,, Eric Steeves of Newbury, MA, Lori Steeves Haraske and husband David Haraske of Amesbury, MA., Sally Steeves of Amesbury, MA, Julie Steeves of Newburyport, MA., her "honorary sons" JP Moreland of Melbourne, Fla. and Wayne Grover of Newport, RI., and her nine grandchildren: MacKenzie Steeves, Audrey Steeves, Emily Schraer, Vaughn Steeves, Isabelle Steeves, Oliver Malone, Finnegan Malone, Adelaide Malone, Harrison Haraske, and her beloved Granddogs Lloyd & Norman. Mary is also survived by her brother, Walter Curran of Ocean View, DE and predeceased by her parents, Alford and Elizabeth Curran of South Boston, MA and her other siblings, Alford Curran, Jr., David Curran, Elizabeth (Betty) Curran and Dorothy Curran. A private Celebration of Life will be held for Mary with her loving family and friends. In lieu of flowers, Donations can be made to HopeWell - An organization to help care for local Massachusetts youth in foster care. https://hopewellinc.org/ Are by the E.V. Jutras & Sons Funeral Home in Amesbury.
