A kind heart, an open hand, devoted husband and father, Jim had an endless plethora of interests. Not a day passed by that he did not immerse his family with his wit and charming sarcasm. His last weeks were spent singing and reciting his poetry to his six week old grandchild, sweet Caroline. Jim was notoriously incapable of keeping what he learned of the world to himself and made a point to share his wealth of information to the 6 a.m. crew at the Groveland Dog Park. One of a kind, a legend to his family, he will be forever missed. Relatives and friends are invited to attend the funeral on Saturday, October 14th at 1 p.m. at Dole, Childs & Shaw Funeral Home, 148 Main Street, Haverhill. Calling hours Friday from 4 to 8 p.m. Donations in James’ name may be made to the West Newbury Fire Company, 401 Main Street, West Newbury, MA 01985. Messages of condolence may be sent to www.dcsfuneralhome.com.

Marie (Dressler) Johnson, age 77, of Rochester, N.Y., died peacefully Monday afternoon, October 9, 2017, at the Sawtelle Family Hospice House in Reading, with her loving family and friends by her side. Born in Orlando, Fla. on January 1,1940, she was the daughter of the late Cecil L. and Mabel (Choitz) Dressler. In her early childhood, she grew up traveling with the carnival along the East Coast, where her parents ran a popcorn and french fry stand. Her family eventually settled in Merrimac and established a drive-up hamburger stand, called “Cy’s 5X5” along route 110. She was a graduate of the former Merrimac High School, Class of 1957. She attended Colorado Womens College and BU, graduating with a History and Government degree from BU in 1961. Through the UCC church, she spent a year in Germany helping the mentally disabled. Her time in Germany had a profound impact on her and it was here that she realized she wanted to become a minister. She went to Andover Newton Theology School. She became an ordained UCC minister and worked as a pastoral counselor in Rochester, NY and Claremont, CA. She worked her way up to become the Director of the prestigious Clinebell Institute in Claremont, Calif. Her love for her family and friends were at the core of her being. So was her dedication to her career and helping people. She was gentle, sweet and down to earth. She was incredibly strong at the same time. She was highly intelligent and had a innate ability to understand people. She was a true feminist. She was a very spiritual person and possessed great wisdom. She passed on her wisdom and kindness to her children, grandchildren and everyone she met. She became more extroverted and quite silly in her later years. She claims she got this sense of humor from her father, CY. She enjoyed philosophical, political and historical conversations, walks in nature collecting rocks and acorns in the woods and shells on the beach. She enjoyed walking her dog, Hazel, reading mystery and spy novels, watching Sci-fi movies, PBS Masterpiece Theater, Dr. Who and Sherlock Holmes. She loved avocados and pistachio, coffee and chocolate chip ice cream. Spending time with her grandchildren was her most favorite enjoyment of all. She was very proud that her youngest grandchild, Marie, was named after her. She leaves a lifetime of special memories to her son, Erik Johnson of Rochester, N.Y.; her daughter, Gretchen Aliabadi and husband, Amir of Issaquah, Wash. and her daughter, Helena Johnson and wife, Stephanie Balaouras of Reading; her grandchildren, Kathleen, Parker, Ben, Jake and Marie; her sister, LeAnn Poesse and husband Rolf of Ft.

Roberta M. (Tremblay) Trussell passed away peacefully on October 3, 2017, at home after an extended battle fighting the effects of cancer and Alzheimer’s. Her life story is truly a love story and true love stories never die. She was born in Hartford, Conn., the daughter of Noah A. and Ethel M. (Thomas) Tremblay. She moved to Revere, Mass., when her father was assigned to the Boston Navy Yard in the 1940s and to Hamilton, Mass., in the 1950s when he was assigned to the Portsmouth Navy Yard. It was in Hamilton when she was in the eighth grade that the love story began. She met a sophomore by the name of Philip Trussell who was to become her life partner. It was on the school bus that the story started. She got on first and saved the seat next to her for him to join her every school day. That simple beginning blossomed into 65 years of love, devotion and loyalty. They were married on August 23, 1958, making this their 59th wedding anniversary. Roberta and Philip have three daughters and a son. The daughters are Jennifer Trussell of Jeffersonville, Vt., Jamie Trussell of Newbury, Mass., Jessica Sullivan of Lexington, Va.; and a son, Philip Trussell of Jeffersonville, Vt. There are two grandchildren, Olivia Valley of Newbury, Mass., and Noah Sullivan of Lexington, Va. There are two sons-in-law, Jeffrey Valley (deceased) and Jay Sullivan of Lexington, Va. Roberta also has two siblings, Noah Tremblay of Stratham, N.H., and Karen Anderson of Dade City, Fla. Roberta and Philip’s homes have been primarily in two locations -- High Road, Newbury, Mass., where they lived for 28 years, and in the community of Eastman, Grantham N.H., for the last 21 years. Her primary interests have been her family, her home, and her friends. After that it was golf, cross country skiing, dogs, swimming, traveling and having fun. She never let Philip forget that she won four club championships at Ould Newbury Golf Club to his three. As a wife, a mother, a friend, no one could ask for more. Through their interest in golf and business, they were able to travel to some beautiful venues not only in this country but Hawaii, Caribbean Islands, Ireland and Scotland. A memorial service will be held on Saturday, October 14, 2017, at 10 a.m. at St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church, Gould Road, New London, N.H. A graveside service will be held that same day at 3 p.m. in Hamilton Cemetery, Bay Road, Hamilton.
