Information for SHINE - Fuel Assistance - SNAP Programs

Learn about resources that are available to you locally. COA Outreach Coordinator Emily Thompson can help you learn about available local resources and current happenings in our community.

SNAP (Supplementary Nutrition Assistance Program) can be used to supplement your food budget costs. Money saved through SNAP could be used toward your medical costs. SNAP is income-based, but it is your income after shelter and medical expenses are deducted.

Home heating and energy assistance (a.k.a. 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.

The SHINE Program (Serving the Health Insurance Needs of Everyone) provides free health insurance information, counseling and assistance to all Massachusetts residents with Medicare.

In honor of Joyce, a bench will be donated to The Old Towne Country Club in Newbury by Chris, Stephanie, Bonnie and Donna Pouliot.

Randolph - John Francis O'Brien - Born on September 12, 1930, in Boston, Massachusetts to Grace (Maley) and Francis J. O'Brien. As a child, John lived in Milton, Dorchester, and Jamaica Plain, Massachusetts. Upon his father's death when he was 10 years old, John moved with his family to the Fenway section of the Back Bay. John attended Boston Public Schools until the last years of high school when he enrolled in the Huntington School from which he graduated in 1948. As a teen-ager, he delivered papers, worked in the A&P, and worked at the local gas stations. Enrolled at Bates College in Lewiston, Maine, John met two pivotal people in his life, his future wife in German class and his closest friend, Bob Rice, in the dormitory. His time at Bates was interrupted by the Korean War Draft in 1952. While in the Army, he went to data processing school. Married in 1953 to Leonardia S. Maskiewicz, John finished his degree from Bates in 1955 and returned to Boston. By the late fifties, he had graduated with an MSW from Boston University. Professionally, John worked as a social worker for the Veterans Administration in downtown Boston, Bedford, and Brockton, the Judge Baker Guidance Center, the Greater Boston Family Service Association, the Cambridge Family Service Association, the Interfaith Relief Effort after the 1978 Blizzard, and the Professional Counselling Center, Inc. in New Bedford. He worked well past normal retirement age! He had a long-time appointment as an Adjunct Professor at Smith College for whom he supervised social work students in their required placements. In 1964 he published "Personality Patterns of Rheumatoid Arthritic Patients" in Arthritis and Rheumatology with his colleague Fredric B. Nalven. In 1968 Dr. Nalven and he co-authored "On the Use of the MMPI with Rheumatoid Arthritic Patients" in the Journal of Clinical Psychology. In the 1970s he was active in the White House Conference of Families convened by President Carter. On September 12, 2022, John celebrated his 69th wedding anniversary to his beloved wife Nard. Having met as teenagers, they stayed happily married to the very end. Since January, he had been living in an assisted living facility within walking distance from Nard's nursing home. He visited her most days by using his walker to traverse the short distance between their residences. This visit was a highlight of their day. A devoted family member, John was much bereaved by his older sister's death in 1951. He remained close to his mother and brother throughout their lives. He especially relished speaking with his brother about sports and cars! During his father-in-law's life, John brought his family to visit weekly on the family farm in Newbury. A city boy through and through, John helped out with the farm chores every week. He always said that for an urban kid, spring had meant hearing the melting snows rush through the sewers. But on the farm, he learned that spring meant plowing a large garden and other essential tasks. The proud father of Kathryn, Elizabeth, and Daniel, John relished being a parent. He had missed a long relationship with his own father and lavished time and attention on his children with special emphasis. He was always ready to chauffeur, engage in activities, and lend a helping hand. He went on every Boy Scout camping trip. He sledded and skated with his children in the winter and took the family to Cape Cod in the summer. For many years, he delighted in sailing a JetWind on the waters off Chatham, Massachusetts. The arrival of grandchildren was a great joy. The Bordonaros called him Grandpa. The O'Briens called him the more formal, yet quite apt, Grandfather. They all loved his company. There were special games, pizza nights, pre-Thanksgiving Pie Day. He was a frequent attendant and perpetual chauffeur for athletic events. There are memories to last a lifetime! He enthusiastically greeted the arrival of great-grandchildren. Covid made it impossible to see them but he gamely did video calls and followed their development closely. When their own children were grown, John and Nard were able to travel with friends, family, and on their own. The Florida Keys were their favorite getaway. But they traveled in the western United States with friends and made a very special trip to Ireland with his cousin Mary Catherine O'Brien and the Bordonaros. An avid sports fan, John kept up with all manner of sports from Candlewood Bowling to the major league teams in all disciplines. He ran track in high school and college prior to his service in the Army, 1952-1954, mostly at the Pentagon. He reveled in the athletic successes of Maura, Meaghan, and Joey. Baseball, however, was his true passion. He could combine his love of numbers with an appreciation for the physical aspect of the game and was a true student of America's favorite pastime. A lifelong Red Sox fan, he followed all the teams and players with a keen eye and enjoyed analyzing the sport at any time. John was a great friend to many. His dearest friend, Bob Rice, was his college roommate. Bob's late wife, Cil, was a Bates nursing grad like Nard. The two couples were lifelong companions, traveling mates, and lovers of Cape Cod. He and Bob enjoyed a healthy competition in their sailboats each summer. Other very special friends were Feung and Mew Sin Lee and their children. The O'Briens and the Lees celebrated major holidays and birthdays together for decades. In the 60s, John played bridge regularly with work colleagues who became friends. Everywhere that he went he made new friends! John F. O'Brien, beloved husband of Leonardia (Maskiewicz) O'Brien. Devoted father of Kathryn O'Brien Bordonaro, her husband Peter of NY, NY, Elizabeth Murphy, her husband Robert of Seattle WA, and Daniel O'Brien, his wife Mary of Woburn. Dear brother of the late Anne R. O'Brien and the late Edward M. O'Brien. Adored grandfather of Michael J. Bordonaro, Margaret F. Solarz, Maura, Meaghan and Joseph O'Brien and great-grandfather of Grace and Clementine Bordonaro and Lorenzo Solarz. John is also survived by his loving nieces Erin and Kayla. His family and friends will sorely miss him. A Funeral Mass was celebrated in St. Charles Church, 280 Main Street, Woburn, on Tuesday, September 27th at 10 A.M. Relatives and friends respectfully gathered PRIOR to John's Funeral Mass in the Lynch-Cantillon Funeral Home, 263 Main Street, Woburn, MA 01801. Interment will be private. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in John's memory to The National Multiple Sclerosis Society, PO Box 91891, Washington, D.C. 20090.

concord - Mary Agnes Cunningham Lord flew away on the first day of Autumn after traveling ninety-six times around the sun. She was born in the village of Drumcliffe at the foot of Ben Bulben mountain, County Sligo, Ireland on Sept. 19, 1926. The daughter of Patrick and Bridget Cunningham, she was the oldest of eight children who survived. At the young age of seventeen she left her home and family to train as a nurse in England during the war in 1943. There she met her future husband, Eamon, also from Ireland, then an American soldier. They married and came to America settling in Baltimore, MD where Eamon was a mechanical engineer and she a homemaker and there raised her family of four children until they were in school. In 1957 the family moved to Lynn, MA. where she continued her nursing career. Her lifelong passion was caring for and defending others. Mary knew the meaning of work, the meaning of love, and the meaning of compassion. She was a frequent contributor to local newspapers championing causes for decency and defending marginalized groups. Washing the feet of the poor was not just a symbolic act. When not allowed to distribute used clothing at a shelter she would open the trunk of her car on the street to do so. She took the time to listen to their stories offering them the dignity they deserved, defending the idea that all were children of God and deserving to be treated with respect. Mary lost her husband Eamon in 1979 when he was 69 and she 53. She traveled extensively then, visiting her four children around the country and family abroad. Trips to Ireland, with her son Michael, and Japan with Robert were among her cherished memories. In 2001 Mary moved to Havenwood-Heritage Heights in Concord, NH. Mary always went right to the top to speak with the person in charge and you can count on it; she is doing that now. Her faith gave her, her strength, and it was by the ocean where she meditated. Never would she live anywhere but by the sea. She loved to hear the waves, smell the salt air and walk the beach in search no matter the weather. If the world ever wonders where all the seashells are they should talk to Mary. Always up for a game, she was a ferocious Scrabble player especially while enjoying a wee dram of Irish whiskey and certainly now is partaking in a bit of the angel's share. She loved to travel and meet people, bird watching, long walks on a cold windy beach, reading poetry and studying spiritual writings which she loved to discuss with family and friends. She enjoyed entertaining and always set out her finest chinaware the night before a guest arrived. Formal presentation was essential. Tea was not tea unless it was hot and served in a china cup. Mary loved glamor, enjoying dressing to the nines on a daily basis and would never consider opening a door without having her lipstick on. The depth and extent of her wardrobe was a marvel. My father would say "She is a piece of work!" Mary Agnes was a wonderful person. She now walks silently beside her two daughters Frances (CO) and Elizabeth/Ken CA, her two sons Michael (CA) and Robert /Luann (MA), and her three grandsons Nathan/Michelle (C0), Michael/Micheley (AK) and Matthew (CA), her great-grandsons Mikey and Leif (CO), and our extensive family in Ireland and England. We will all miss her greatly. Mary was predeceased by two brothers and two sisters in Ireland and England. She leaves the world better than she found it. What would we have been without her! In honor of Mary's spirit in lieu of flowers, she asks you to support the work at "My Brother's Table" in Lynn, Love your neighbor (and she would add, "yes, that means everyone, you can't choose"), do random acts of kindness, and most certainly "Enjoy the Moment".

West Newbury - Jerry C. Mullen passed away at Anna Jaques Hospital in Newburyport, on Friday, September 23, 2022. He was the beloved husband of Thi Kim Chung Nguyen. Born in Newburyport, December 10, 1952, son of Arline (Lepkowski) Mullen and the late Charles M. Mullen, he was raised in West Newbury. Jerry attended Central School in West Newbury and graduated from Haverhill Trade School in 1970. He began his career as a Senior Engineer of hardware design at the former Wang Laboratories in Lowell and designed fiber optic data communication links for connecting work stations and personal computers to mainframe computers. He retired from Automation Engineering, Inc. (AEI) in Tewksbury, as an experienced and extremely productive "hands on" manufacturing and electrical engineer, a core member of many successful and profitable computer laser based semiconductor processing systems. Manufacturing was his passion and he always went above and beyond what was expected.

North Andover - George Williams, formerly of Newburyport and Great Britain, passed away peacefully on August 8, 2022, following a period of declining health with members of his family at his bed side, at the age of 94. Born in Quarter, Lanarkshire, Scotland on November 25, 1927, he was educated at Hamilton Academy and, following completion of his national service, Glasgow University. Although they knew each other at the Academy, it was not until some time later that George began seeing the woman who would be the love of his life: Moira Shannon. They married and began their life together on the west coast of Scotland. But, like many of their generation, George and Moira left Scotland with their baby daughter to pursue employment opportunities in England, where their younger daughter was born. They spent over 40 years in England, calling many places home, raising their family, working and enjoying holidays abroad. Even in retirement, never afraid of embarking on an adventure, Moira and George moved to Newburyport in 1998 to be close to their grandchildren Alexander, Rebecca and Ben, who he adored. He taught them Scottish songs and poems, not perhaps all appropriate and provided them with a link to their Scottish ancestry and a strong bond to their grandfather. It was not long before George established an active social life. George loved to entertain and he and Moira regularly hosted gatherings for friends. He was a regular at News and Views and prepared for the discussion by reading at least 3 newspapers every morning. George joined Moira to swim at the YWCA. He was the chief supporter of his son-in-law's over the hill soccer team and could be seen many Sunday mornings directing strategy from the side-lines. Something of a fun-loving rascal, George will be remembered for his mischievous sense of humour, his strong opinions and irresistible charm, which was only heightened by his Scottish brogue, which he never lost. An avid rugby player in his youth, George was an enthusiastic sports fan, and he adopted the New England teams, although Baseball left him somewhat wanting. But no team captured his heart more than his boyhood team; Hamilton Academicals- "the Accies". No Saturday was complete until he knew the score of their matches. He is survived by his loving wife of almost 68 years, his two daughters: Kim and her husband Trevor Miller of Newbury, Dawn and her partner Rob Bolland of Leicester, England and his three grandchildren Alexander Williams Miller of College Park, Maryland, Rebecca Williams Miller of Manhattan and Ben Williams Miller of Brooklyn. As a husband, father and grandfather he brought much joy to their lives, and he will be sadly missed. The family would like to express their deepest appreciation to the staff of the Garden View at the Edgewood Community, who provided such compassionate and sensitive care to George in the last 18 months of his life, with special recognition to his nurse Pam Braid. Cremation was private and arranged by Conte Funeral Homes in North Andover. A celebration of George's life will be held later in the year.

It was an honor for her four grateful daughters to be with her as she began her new journey. "Fitzie" was one of five siblings. She grew up in Franklin, Massachusetts where she attended Dean Jr. College. She then ventured into Boston where she was an accountant and lived on Tremont Street. She was always up for an adventure whether it be out to the Berkshires, down to The Cape or heading up to the White Mountains.

She had a magical smile and kindness that made those around her feel connected. Later in life, "Fitzie" worked as a Certified Nursing Assistant at Seaview Retreat in Rowley.
