Newburyport - Jeffrey Brian Janson, 66, died in the early hours of March 31, 2020 after a long and characteristically stubborn battle with cancer. He was born to the late Harry W. Janson and Patience (Pickett) Janson on November 7, 1953 in Biddeford, Maine, where Jeff spent his childhood before moving to Fairhaven. His formative years were spent on the south coast of Massachusetts, where he attended Bishop Stang High School. As class president, he lobbied to have senior prom held in Rhode Island because the drinking age there was still eighteen, a story he recounted with pride to his children many times. He attended the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth and graduated in 1977. Shortly after, he packed up his Volkswagen and drove across the country with his dog, Rasputin. After graduation and his journey west, Jeff had a lifelong career in the airline industry. Starting out as a reservation agent with Northwest Airlines in Seattle, Washington, Jeff eventually returned to the east coast and worked for Northwest Airlines, and then Delta Airlines, as a Customer Service Supervisor at Boston Logan International Airport. He and his wife, Karen, met at Logan Airport on October 1, 1979. It was the first day of work for both of them at Northwest. Jeff and Karen were married on September 18, 1982 in Skaneateles, New York, Karen's hometown. After a short stint living year-round in a barely heated summer shack in Ipswich, they bought a home in Newburyport, the city where Jeff lived for the rest of his life. Jeff was known for his patience and laid-back personality, qualities routinely tested by the antics of his three children in their high school years. Also known for his love of dogs, and beagles in particular, Jeff was commonly seen in later years walking his two beagles down High St. in Newburyport. After his terminal cancer diagnosis, Jeff lived for just shy of five years. In this time, he was able to witness his oldest daughter's wedding and the birth of his first grandchild. He was also able to experience his favorite holiday, Christmas, many more times than he imagined at the outset of his illness. He leaves behind a staggering number of Christmas tree ornaments. Jeff is survived by his wife of 37 years, Karen (Hennigan) Janson; his daughter Kirsten (Janson) Jenkins and her husband, Zachary of Portsmouth, NH; his granddaughter, Natalie Jenkins; his daughter, Maren Janson of Burlington; his son, Colin Janson of Newburyport; his brothers Michael Janson of New Bedford, and William Janson of Londonderry, NH; his sister Gretchen Janson of New Bedford; and his two beagles, Odin and Cleo. A memorial service will be held at a later date, due to the current coronavirus restrictions. The Twomey, LeBlanc, & Conte Funeral Home, 193 High St. Newburyport, MA 01950, is assisting Mr. Janson's family with his funeral arrangements. In lieu of flowers, gifts may be made to Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in memory of Jeffrey Brian Janson to support cancer research and patient care at: Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, P.O. Box 849168, Boston, MA 02284, or via www.dana-farber.org/gift Please donate to the Lank Center for Genitourinary Oncology. To offer online condolences please visit www.tlcfuneralhome.com.

Newbury - Nancy Lee (Yuill) Spanger (October 18, 1943 - March 28, 2020) passed away at Country Center for Health and Rehabilitation Nursing Home after a long battle with Alzheimer's disease. Born and raised in Lynn, Massachusetts, Nancy was the youngest child of Stanley and Eleanor Yuill. She attended Lynn Public Schools and graduated from Lynn English High School in 1961. She graduated cum laude from Salem State College in 1965 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education. She was a dynamic cheerleader, and was captain during both high school and college. She was an elementary school teacher at Aborn Elementary School in Lynn and at the Dr. Elmer S. Bagnall School in Groveland before having her children. She became a Sales Director for Mary Kay Cosmetics and was well-known for driving around town in the pink cars she won. Nancy was a rarity in our modern society, she was a "stay-at-home mom." The myriad of school friends that constantly visited our kitchen called her "The Nance." She always had time for a snack or some advice, or just to listen. She never missed a game, recital, play or band competition. School chums from back in the day, now in their 50s, still talk about how they would gravitate to our kitchen to be with "The Nance." Nancy was a force of nature; a genuine social animal. She loved to play tennis, to golf, to be with people and, most importantly, to just be a Mom. Nancy never met a beach she didn't like. Nancy's perfect day was to pack a cooler and head the boat down river to Sandy Point. A devout Christian, her relationship with First Parish Church of Newbury was of utmost importance to her. Nancy chose a career in Mary Kay Cosmetics as opposed to resuming a career in the classroom so that she could be available to her kids. A successful Mary Kay Senior Sales Director, Nancy won fourteen cars in a thirty year period. As successful as she was in the business world, she was a better mom. We will remember her that way with love and appreciation. Beloved wife of Stephen C. Spanger, whom she married on August 7, 1966, Nancy is also survived by her three children: Kristin Spanger Flaherty and her husband, Patrick, of West Newbury, Amy Elizabeth Spanger and her husband, Brian, of New York City, New York, and Stephen C. Spanger, Jr. and his wife, Susan, of Weehawken, New Jersey. She also leaves five grandchildren: Angus, Erin, and Katherine Flaherty of West Newbury, and Gavin and Wesley Spanger of Weehawken, New Jersey. She also leaves behind two sisters: Adena Doyle and Joann O'Donnell. The Spanger Family would like to thank the Country Center for Health and Rehabilitation Nursing Home for the amazing care she received. A celebration of Nancy's life will take place at a later date. In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to the Alzheimer's Association, 309 Waverly Oaks Road, Waltham, MA 02452. Arrangements were by Elliott, Woodworth & Rogers Family Funeral Home, 35 Green Street, Newburyport.
