US Special Committee on Aging

The United States Senate's Special Committee on Aging, currently chaired by Senator Bob Casey (D-PA), was established in 1961 as a temporary committee. It was granted permanent status in February, 1977. While special committees have no legislative authority, they can study issues, conduct oversight of programs, and investigate reports of fraud and waste. Note: Senior victims of fraud can report it to the Fraud Hotline.

The Special Committee on Aging has served as a focal point in the Senate for discussion and debate on matters relating to older Americans, and often submits its findings and recommendations for legislation to the Senate. The Committee additionally publishes materials of assistance to those interested in public policies which relate to the elderly.

For more information, visit the Committee's press releases page. It is a gold mine of legislative issue and hearing information, and resource links, plus: you can sign up for e-News; order publications; view the latest list of issues and press releases; get prescription assistance ... and more!

Fuel Assistance) season runs from November 1st through April 30th and is available for eligible homeowners and renters, including households whose cost of heat is included in the rent (12 month assistance in that case). It pays directly to your primary heating source vendor, and automatically includes electric and telephone bill discounts if you are eligible, saving you money to use for medical or other expenses.

Newmarket - Patrick Lee Marsh, 80, of Newmarket, NH, died peacefully at home following a lengthy illness. His wife of 21 years, Anita (Swenson) Marsh, was by his side. Patrick was born in Seattle, Washington, son of the late Vera (Hill) and Leo Marsh. He was the youngest of three siblings, predeceased by his brother, Samuel Marsh and survived by his sister, Leilani Linden of Sherborn, MA. The son of a Naval officer, Patrick spent his youth traveling and gaining appreciation for service and community. Upon the family's return to Washington, Patrick served in the Lowland Search and Rescue Unit in Washington State for three years. At age 18, Patrick enlisted with the United States Coast Guard, and was stationed at the Salem Air Station in Salem, MA. While in Salem, he met and married Susan Scott and had two daughters, Deborah and Kristin. After his enlistment with the Coast Guard, Patrick served as a special police officer in Danvers, MA, and then took a job with the Newburyport Police Department as a police officer and captain of their dive team. He was also a first aid instructor with the American Red Cross and an EMT. Patrick attended the Framingham State Police Academy, graduating in 1972. While there, he won the revolver shooting competition with a score of 340 out of 360. It was one of the highest marks ever recorded at the Academy at the time. He also attended Merrimack College and received a degree in Human Services from Springfield College in Springfield, MA. Patrick served Newburyport and the surrounding community for 25 years, retiring in 1995. Active in his retirement, Patrick contracted with OSHA to do safety inspections across the state. Hiking and climbing were Patrick's passions and he ascended many of the NH48 peaks—the 48, 4,000-footers in New Hampshire. He also winter climbed Mount Rainier in Washington State, the first time in 1956 and again, 40 years later, in 1996. Patrick enjoyed golf, skiing, horseback riding, cartooning, motorcycles, bourbon, and cigars (not necessarily in that order). Patrick showed great compassion and love for his wife, Anita, and for his two daughters and their families. He doted on Emma, their yellow Labrador, and Libby, a neighbor's black Labrador, who faithfully never left Patrick's side. The family is also grateful for the love and support of Patrick's nieces Erin Marsh Arguelles and Aline Linden, and nephews Dan Marsh and Ian Linden. Patrick is survived by his wife, Anita; sister, Leilani; daughter, Deborah Bruce and husband Dennis; daughter, Kristin Bly and husband Patrick; and grandchildren Conor Bruce and wife, Laura; Danika Bruce; Addison Bly; and Logan Bly.

Amesbury - Anna Francis (Rossi) Bradley, a lifelong resident of Amesbury, passed away on September 18th, 2023. Anna, better known as "Nunna," was born on December 3, 1919 at the Homeopathic Hospital in Newburyport. She was the first of five children born to Ermano and Emma (Lamborghini) Rossi. Anna held jobs at several local businesses, including J.J. Newbury, Brody Wood Heel, Vulcan Shoe, Towle Silversmiths, and House of White Birches Publishing. Anna married Bill Bradley, of Newburyport on October 31st, 1952. They raised three children, Billie, Patty and Stephen in Amesbury and remained happily married until Bill's death in 1993. Anna was a loving and devoted wife and mother. Her children meant the world to her, and nothing brought her more joy than being with her six grandchildren. To them, she was Nunna, to her they were everything. The matriarch of a large extended family, Anna was loved and admired by many. For the past 55 years Anna lived in the same house she grew up in. She kept her family close by hosting holiday dinners and family events at her home. She was always up for a drop-in visit and made her home feel like home to all who entered. Anna was a force of nature, with a smile that could light up any room. She had a great sense of humor, and a formidable memory which stayed intact to the very end. She enjoyed 3pm coffee with friends and family, cooking for and with family, watching the Red Sox, scratch tickets, keeping up to date on all news and current events and shopping. Anna was an exceptional seamstress. Well made clothing and dressing appropriately were really important to her. Anna was very proud to have reached the milestone age of 103. In her 103 years she was able to see 18 U.S. Presidents in the White House, and was proud to say she lived to see the first African American elected to office, and to have cast a vote for the first woman who ran for President. On her 100th birthday, former Mayor Ken Gray hand delivered a proclamation declaring December 3 to be Anna Bradley Day in Amesbury. Anna is predeceased by her husband of 41 years, William E. Bradley, and her siblings Ermano Rossi, Esther Pouliotte, Iole Hussey and Mary Rossi, as well as her son-in-law, James R. McLane. She is survived by her loving family. Her children, Billie Mclane of Amesbury, Patricia Bradley Theriault and her Husband Albert Theriault of South Hampton, NH and Stephen Bradley and his wife Patty Bradley of Kittery, ME. Her loving grandchildren, Ross McLane of Amesbury, Haley McLane of South Boston, Murphy Bradley of Sebago, ME and Matthew Bradley of Waltham, MA and Elly Theriault and Emma Theriault of South Hampton, NH, her great-granddogs, Rocky, Toots, Reggie and Enzo, as well as a large extended family. Calling hours will be held at E.V. Jutras Funeral Home,118 Friend Street, Amesbury, MA on Tuesday, September 26, from 5 to 7 p.m. A funeral Mass will be held at Holy Family Church, 11 Sparhawk Street, Amesbury, MA at 10:30 a.m, Wednesday, September 27th.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made in her name to St.Jude Children's Research Hospital , ALSAC/St Jude Children's Research Hospital, 501 St. Jude Place, Memphis, TN 38105.
