HABS photographer Jack E. Boucher’s funeral was held two years ago on Sept. 7th

The funeral was held at St. Mary Mother of God church in a 1890 building,with mass conducted in Latin by an elderly priest with his back to audience, until he turned around to speak of Jack in English. He talked about how Jack participated in Sunday services and they were always afraid he would falter in rising from kneeling. Given how conservative in religion and most other matters Jack was, it all seems very appropriate in a Victorian way.

The facade is Gothic and austere, but the sanctuary is Gothic and joyous. That also seems to fit Jack’s personality.
