Obituary for Linda M Pratt (Aucoin)

Linda M. (Aucoin) Pratt of Hudson, FL passed away peacefully surrounded by family on Monday, March 18, 2024.

Linda was born at Waltham Hospital on July 16, 1947. She was the first of seven children born to the late Frederick and Alice (Boudreau) Aucoin.

Linda attended “the French school” at St. Joseph’s Parish in Waltham, MA, followed by South Junior High School and then Waltham High School where she met her husband of 57 years, Michael F. Pratt, Sr. Mike and Linda were married on June 25, 1966. They spent a majority of their marriage living in Waltham, MA where they raised their three children, made lots of memories and shared an insurmountable amount of love.

Throughout her life, Linda was a mother figure to many family members including her grandson, siblings and her sister-in-law. She kept an immaculately clean house, was a fabulous cook and took very good care of her family. Linda was honest, kind, loyal, loving and very funny, without even trying to be.

Mike and Linda retired at Heritage Pines in Hudson, FL. Their home overlooks the third hole of a beautiful golf course where they enjoyed many games and lots of laughs with friends and family. In recent years, Linda enjoyed spending time on her iPad scrolling through Facebook; playing games; and watching the "pearl ladies" and the “girls selling clothes.”

Linda is survived by her husband, Michael F. Pratt, Sr. of Hudson, FL; her children: Michael F. Pratt, Jr. and his partner Lucy Estes of Acton, MA; Christopher J. Pratt, Sr. and his wife Tracey of Meredith, NH; and her “favorite child” Sharon A. (Pratt) Lewis and her husband Michael of Westminster, MA. As well as her grandchildren: Christopher J. Pratt, Jr. and his wife Michaela of Nuremburg, Germany; Megan (Pratt) Franchek and her husband Andrew of Bristol, NH; Julianne, Justin and Sean Pratt of Medway, MA; Hannah and Jayden Pratt of Meredith, NH; her beloved great-granddaughter Lily Rose Pratt of Nuremburg, Germany; her great-grandson Brooks Franchek of Bristol, NH; and her two grand pups Bitty and Loki Lewis of Westminster, MA. In addition, Linda was a loving sister to her siblings: the late Joseph “Roger” Aucoin; the late baby Ernest; the late Lynda Aucoin; Kenneth Aucoin of Malden, MA; Michael Aucoin and his wife Elaine of Waltham, MA; Edward Aucoin and his partner MaryAnn Kotyk of Belleair, FL; and Annette (Aucoin) Eaton and her partner John Toland of Deltona, FL. As well as her brother-in-law Charles F. Pratt of Glade Springs, WV and her sister-in-law Helen M. Daly of Northport, NY. Linda is also survived by many loving nieces, nephews, great nephews and many dear and close friends.
