Heidi (Williams) Bouchard, 48, Of Groton, MA, died Tuesday, November 13th, following a sudden illness, at Tufts Medical Center in Boston.
Daughter of the late Bernard and Rosalie Williams, she was born in Groton, MA on September 20, 1970, and was raised in Pepperell. Heidi lived in Morgan Hills, California before returning home to Pepperell, eventually making Groton her home where she has lived for nearly ten years.
