She is cherished by her sisters Colleen Nilsson,   Marcia Mello  and Erin Healy and many nieces and nephews who miss her terribly.   She traveled the world, was a successful competitive sailor, expert Boggle player and ballroom dancer.  She was an editor for many years at Yachting Magazine and continued in the publishing industry for the past 20 years at Standard Publishing in Boston.    In lieu of flowers the family is suggesting donations to the Andrew Cloutier Foundation, which supports cancer patients, on the website at www.andrewcloutierfoundation.org or via check payable to “The Andrew Cloutier Memorial Fund”, TD Bank, 127 South St. Wrentham,Ma 02093.
