Always the life of the party, Courtney had a wonderful sense of humor and an infectious laugh. Her smile could light up any room, and all who knew her will remember her love of music and the sheer joy in her voice as she would sing along and dance with exuberance. For the last twenty years Courtney resided in Stoneham with very special roommates and was a valued member of the Shore Collaborative program in Woburn, She received superlative care and was loved unconditionally by Cammie-Marie Robicheau, who accompanied Courtney to countless concerts and musicals from Lady Gaga and Grease to her favorite New Kids on the Block.
