BILLERICA - Rolande S. (Boulet) Metivier died at Beth Israel Hospital on Sunday, November 29, 2009, following a courageous fight to overcome complications after surgery. She turned 74 on October 26th. At the time of her passing, she was surrounded by the family she loved so much and who love her in return.
Born in Thetford Mines, Quebec, the daughter of the late Alexandre and Asmen (Bernatche) Boulet. Rolande was the 14th of 15 children. Having lost her dad and many of her siblings at an early age, she had a strong sense of family that she instilled in her own family.
