Joane Mildred (Leffler) Bouchard McNaughton, of The Villages, FL, formerly of Syosset, NY and Canton, MA, passed away peacefully on Friday, April 15, 2022, at 89 years. Joane was born on Long Island, New York, to William and Mildred Leffler. She married her first husband Frederick Bouchard in 1952. Joane and Fred had four children who they raised on Long Island in Syosset and later in Muttontown, NY. Joane had an active life raising her kids, she enjoyed playing tennis and golf, and she and Fred had a large group of close friends, many of whom she stayed in contact with until recently. Fred passed away in 1974. Two years later Joane met Thomas McNaughton, who was also widowed and had seven children. Joane and Tom married seven months later, and she moved to Canton, MA. There she raised and managed a combined family of eleven children and stepchildren ranging in ages of 5 to 22 at that time. Joane and Tom had a beautiful, devoted, and loving marriage for 43 years. They moved to The Villages, Florida following Tom's retirement in 1995. Joane was very active socially, played in several bridge groups and played golf avidly until a chronic back condition slowed her down in her later years. She enjoyed the substantial time that she and Tom spent volunteering at the Society of Saint Vincent de Paul charity organization at Saint Timothy Roman Catholic Church in The Villages. Joane had extensive friend groups in Canton and in The Villages, as well. She most loved spending time with her large family and was especially proud of her grandchildren and great grandchildren. Joane enjoyed the many family weddings, shared holidays and get-togethers in the Northeast, Florida, and Texas.
