Amesbury, MA - Cathryn, or better known to her family and friends as "Catie," is the beautiful daughter of Carole and Colin Doucette of Amesbury, Mass., and the middle child in a family of five. Older sister Andrea Kilgore and big brother Stephen Serwacki on one side, younger, twin sisters Abigail Strane and Kelsey Doucette bookend the other. Catie gave us 30 years of a life worth loving and a life worth living. She was known for a consistent recipe of unapologetic positivity, genuine warmth, and an uncanny ability to make others feel loved. Her calling in life was in nursing, which parlayed seamlessly with her passion for helping others. She received her Bachelor of Science in Nursing from Salem State University in 2014; a distinction that she revered every day of her life. She defined herself by this achievement. Catie lived with a constant case of wanderlust, but in the most archaic sense of the word. We're talking road maps, breaking out the atlas, and cross-country trips-none more celebrated in her life than a 2016 excursion to the Gorge in Washington state to spend "Labor Dave Weekend" with the Dave Matthews Band. Memories from this trip incessantly enriched her spirit and gave her the experience she had always dreamed of. A lover of reading, sewing, painting pottery and of course, her two cats, Paul and Meg. Sunrises moved the needle, nurturing her nieces and nephews brought her immense joy, and she spoke the language of sharing fluently. When she wasn't helping others under the attire of a nurse, she was helping others outside of work in her normal day-to-day. Catie had a propensity for extending herself to those in need and those that are forgotten. This was her purpose in life. This was her "why." Behind Catie's cavernous dimples and that trademark smile known to light up a room lived a darkness that defined many of her days. Anxiety and depression are very real. People live with them every day. They are as real as cancer. Catie struggled through those times. To find solace and escape from the pain she experienced, self-medication numbed her pain but it also took her life. Our hearts our broken. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to freedomtogrowretreat.org, a non-profit organization that our Catie was very passionate about. For anyone that ever loved Catie, we thank you dearly. Calling hours at the E.V. Jutras & Sons Funeral Home, 118 Friend St., in Amesbury, will be held Wednesday, August 15, from 4 to 6:30 p.m., followed by a memorial tribute to Catie at 6:30 p.m.

Newbury, MA - Walter W. Mills Jr., age 91, of Newbury, passed peacefully Friday morning, August 10, 2018, at Country Center in Newburyport. Born in the Jamaica Plains section of Boston on April 28, 1927, he was the son of the late Walter W. and Doris M. (Cowan) Mills and was a graduate of Woburn High School, and went on to graduate from Essex Agricultural School, class of 1945. He proudly served with the United States Navy (Seabees) during World War II, having entered on February 10, 1945, and honorably discharged on July 29, 1946, with the rank of Electrician’s Mate Third Class. He was the recipient of the World War II Victory Medal, and the Asiatic-Pacific Area Medal. Growing up on a farm, Walter was no stranger to farming, but as much as he loved farming, did not follow in the family tradition. He became a Newbury Police Officer, and then worked at the Essex County Prison Farm in Middleton, as a correctional officer until they closed. He was then transferred to the Lawrence Jail where he continued being a correctional officer for many years. Walter also worked for the Newbury Highway Department, was a call fireman with the Newbury Fire Department, and was a former Assessor for the Town of Newbury. After moving to Windsor, Maine, he finally got back into farming and loved tending his huge vegetable garden and spending many hours mowing his lawns. A picture of his property was on the cover of Windsor’s annual report. He became involved with the Town of Windsor, and served on the Budget Committee, the Road Commission, and the Board of Appeals. In addition to his loving wife of 70 years, Anna M. (Bashaw) Mills, he is survived by one son, Thomas W. Mills and wife Karen of Plymouth; a daughter, Dorothy M. Allen and husband Clifford E. Allen Jr., of Newbury; a daughter-in-law, Judy Mills of Eliot, Maine; nine grandchildren; and 13 great-grandchildren; a sister, Barbara Woods of Newburyport; along with generations of nieces and nephews, extended family and dear friends. In addition to his parents, he was predeceased by his son Richard A. Mills; two sisters, Marilyn Berry and Janet Davis; and a brother, Arthur Mills. Funeral services and burial will be private. In lieu of flowers, donations in his memory can be made to Operation Troop Support http://operationtroopsupport.org/donate/. Arrangements are by Elliott, Woodworth & Rogers Family Funeral Home, 35 Green Street, Newburyport.

Amesbury, MA - Joan Flynn Cashman died at home on August 10, 2018, at the age of 88. She was the wife of the late Charles C. Cashman Sr., and mother of Rosemary, Charles (wife: Debbie), Christopher (wife: Linda), Michael (wife: Cathy), Cara (husband: Tom Connelly), and James (wife: Kate). Her parents were Dr. William A. Flynn and Rosemary Carr Flynn. Her sisters were Rosemary Flynn Cashman and Roberta (Bobbi) Flynn. She was a grandmother, aunt, cousin, in-law, and friend of many. She graduated from Regis College. Joan lived in Amesbury her entire life, and was raised until age 11 in a downtown home where her father had his doctor’s office. Her parents built a home in another section of town in 1941, and that’s where Joan remained for more than 75 years. She and her two sisters—the so-called “Flynn Sisters”—were a close-knit bunch, taking care of children together, chatting over coffee frequently, and sharing much laughter. Although her husband died after a much-too-brief marriage of 21 years, Joan carried on by raising their six children, getting them through college, welcoming grandkids, and working at the Amesbury News, and Greater Newburyport Chamber of Commerce. She liked watching and reading stories about World War II, the Kennedys, and the Titanic. She and her brother-in-law, George, were so immersed in the history of the Titanic that she often said that it felt like they both went down with the ship. Joan was a big fan of the Red Sox. When she attended a game several years ago with some of her children, the Sox won. The Yankees should have known better—they had no chance of winning with Joan in the crowd. A Red Sox flag flies high on the flag pole in the backyard as she anticipated another World Series trophy this October. The home where Joan lived for most of her life was just that—a home. It was a place full of joyous noise with kids scattered in and out, a place for wedding receptions in the backyard, including her own, and a place for festive Christmas Eve parties with plenty of Lobster Newburg and oyster stew. Most of all, Joan’s home was a place where she delighted in her family and friends, and they responded in kind. Arrangements: The funeral Mass will be held on Thursday, August 16, at 10:30 a.m. at Holy Family Parish Church, 9 Sparhawk Street, Amesbury. There will be no calling hours. Arrangements are by E. V. Jutras and Sons Funeral Home in Amesbury.

She attended the Cameron Grammar School, and was a proud graduate of Westford Academy, class of 1940. In her youth, Scotty enjoyed swimming and skating on Forge Pond. In February of 1943, Scotty joined the newly-formed Women Marines and became part of the first graduating class. She was a Quarter Master assigned to the Marine Barracks in Norfolk, Virginia where she attained the rank of Staff Sergeant. She served until the end of the war and the base closing in 1945. She returned to Forge Village where she worked in the payroll office of the Abbott Mills, and was the last surviving employee who was working in the office during the “Big Robbery.” She then was attempting to return to the Marines as they had decided to reinstate the Women’s Branch. That all changed when she met Thomas Farley at the Commodore Ballroom in Lowell. They were married August 7, 1948, and raised six children in Lowell.

Scotty and Tom retired to Salisbury Beach, where she resided until 2015 when she moved to Marland Place in Andover, where she was living at the time of her death. She had a wonderful sense of humor, and her family was the most important aspect of her life. She previously held membership in both the Westford Academy Alumni Association and the Westford Senior Center. Her name is listed on the Woman’s War Memorial, Quantico, as the very first Female Marine from Westford, Mass.
