She also looked forward to the family’s Holiday and Birthday gatherings with brother, Terry Boudreau, and nephew, Terrance Boudreau Her favorite meals included pop from McDonalds, pancakes, and pizza. She was very close to her sister, Cheryl, they would take long walks in a park, attend fairs, watching movies, or just relax on the beach. When she would meet someone she would extend her hand and say my name is Collette Joy Boudreau, I love you.. You gotta love everyone, like God does. Coloring was her favorite past-time and loved receiving balloons, and stuffed animals as gifts. If you gifted her a stuffed animal, she would name it Larry, Amy, or Tom.  She also enjoyed listening to music and dancing, especially to her favorite band New Kids On The Block. Collette would also say "how much is that?  I will get you one."  She had a soft spot for animals and always wanted to have a pet rabbit.
