Obituary for Jean S. Boulger

Jean S. Boulger, age 91, passed away peacefully in her sleep at home on April 28, 2024. She was the wife of the late James D. Boulger.

Born in Brooklyn, New York, and raised in Queens, she was the daughter of the late Arthur F. and Ellen (Englehart) Stumpf. Jean attended public schools in New York and was a proud graduate of PS 113 in Queens. Jean went on to earn her BA in English from St. Joseph’s University and her MA in English from Yale University. Jean worked her way through school with jobs at Macy’s Department Store in NY and the Equitable Insurance Co. in CT.

While at Yale Jean met fellow student and future husband Jim Boulger. They raised a family starting in New Haven, CT, also living in Cambridge, England, and then in Providence.

Besides her parents Jean is pre-deceased by her sisters Theresa Richards and Marjorie Stumpf. Jean is survived by children Ellen Shay (Justin), James, John, and Geoffrey Boulger, all of RI, and grandchildren Timothy, Daniel, and Kate Shay.

Burial will be private. We wish to sincerely thank everyone at HopeHealth Hospice for the wonderful care they gave Jean at home. Donations in lieu of flowers may be made to HopeHealth Hospice & Palliative Care, 1085 North Main St, Providence, RI 02904.
