Mary Jacqueline (Brouker) Aldrich, 35, of Hampton Bays, New York, left this world on Saturday, March 23, 2019 after battling an eating disorder for many years.
Born in Pittsfield, Massachusetts on December 19, 1983 to Cynthia and Steven Brouker of Lee, Massachusetts, Mary graduated from Lee High School in 2001. She attended Holyoke Community College, Berkshire Community College and Westfield State University, where she majored in Criminal Justice.
On June 16, 2012, Mary J. Brouker married Nicolas F. Aldrich and they later welcomed their daughter, Olivia Rose, the light of their lives.
Mary was a fighter. She was loyal and caring. A friendly spirit, a gentle soul. Mary was full of light, danced often, marveled the ocean and most of all: she loved to laugh. Her laugh was beautiful—distinct—deep, raspy, and booming. Gloriously loud.
Mary is survived by her husband, Nicolas Aldrich and her daughter Olivia, of Hampton Bays, her parents; Cynthia and Steven Brouker of Lee, Massachusetts; her sister, Kristen Brouker-Botelho and her husband, Kevin Botelho of Quincy, Massachusetts, her sister, Brittany Brouker of Great Barrington, Massachusetts. She also leaves many aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews, friends, and pets who she loved with all of her heart.
A liturgy of Christian Burial for Mary will be held on Friday, March 29, 2019 at 10 am at St. Mary's Church, 140 Main Street, Lee Massachusetts with Father Brian McGrath and Monsignor John Bonzagni, officiating. Burial will follow in Pittsfield Cemetery, 203 Wahconah Street, Pittsfield. Calling hours will be held on Tuesday from 2-4 & 7-9 PM at the O'Connell-Rothwell Funeral Home and on Thursday, March 28, 2019 from 4-7pm at Kelly Funeral Home, 3 Main Street, Lee. In lieu of flowers, donations in Mary's memory may be made to the Olivia Aldrich College Trust. Checks may be made payable to: "Olivia Rose Aldrich", C/O Nicolas Aldrich, 114 Lynncliff Road, Hampton Bays, NY 11946.
