Mary Beth was born on February 2, 1952, in Newburyport, to the late Cornelius J. "Red" and Mary C. (Kavaleski) Foley.

She worked at Kaiser Hospital in San Diego until her retirement in 2012.

That same year she married the love of her life, career Navy veteran John Townes. The two spent 35 happy years together. In addition to helping others, Mary Beth loved all activities spent outdoors. Retirement afforded her the opportunity to do the things that she loved like creating beautiful spaces in her garden, walking the soft California sand at the beach, and traveling with John. The two especially loved going on cross-county road trips with their beloved canine companions, a journey they made four times. In addition to her parents, Mary Beth is reunited in Heaven with her brother Cornelius J. Foley Jr. She leaves her husband, John; her sister-in-law, Ellen Foley of Nahant; and several nieces, nephews, cousins and their families.

Amesbury, MA - The family of Robin Tammik sadly announces her passing on Thursday, April 9, 2020, after a lengthy illness and multiple medical challenges. A fighter of the MS she struggled with, Robin's gift of humor was her strength and carried her through many of life's difficulties. Adept at making light of her condition, she was always clever at finding "better" subjects for conversation and despite her illnesses always had an ear to listen; true to her spirit she was, until the end, always more concerned with everyone else. The eternal comedienne shared her wittiness even in her last days, leaving a warm remembrance with her nurses as their favorite patient. Robin grew up in Merrimac and was a 1967 graduate of Pentucket Regional High School. She loved the beach, a cup of tea with a family member or friend and was a collector of many things including ceramic lighthouses, elephants, and silver spoons. Robin was predeceased by her parents, Edwin and Jeannette Tammik and her daughter-in-law, Paula Walker. Robin will be greatly missed by her sons Mark and Ian Walker; her grandchildren Madison, Daniel, and Brianne Walker; great-grandchildren Emelia, Owen, and Jeannette; her siblings Eric Tammik and wife Marge, Bette (Tammik) Flaherty and husband Tim, Heidi Tammik Synnott and husband Richard; and many nieces, nephews, and cousins. Due to the current virus a memorial service will be held at a later date at Locust Grove Cemetery in Merrimac, Mass. At her request, there will also be a separate memorial service in Kauai.

After relocating to Amesbury in 2006, she found her dream job at Carr Island Animal Hospital in Newburyport where she worked for several years through 2019. Judy will be remembered for her love of animals, particularly cats, having provided a loving home to many rescued strays with special health needs. She also enjoyed taking care of her plants and doing projects around her home, but she especially enjoyed the time she spent with her grandchildren, whether it be attending their sports activities or making sand castles at Plum Island Beach. She was often seen making her own karate chop moves in the background at her grandson's karate practice. Judy will also be lovingly remembered for her great sense of humor, her generosity and her never-ending supply of gram crackers that she stashed away in the many bags that she carried. Judy is survived by her devoted daughter and son-in-law, Laurie Anderson Kench and Stan Kench; her four precious grandchildren, Rebecca and James (J.T.) Kench and Kayleigh and Max Anderson; and her loving niece, Diana Rogers. A private memorial service to honor and celebrate the life of Judy will be held at the Immaculate Conception Church located on Green Street in Newburyport, MA.

Peabody - Alan Harvey Papert passed away on September 19, 2020, at the age of 90. He was predeceased by his brother Seymour and is survived by his wife of 64 years Gloria (Moss) Papert, his sister, Joan Papert, his three children, Suzanne (Papert) Hinman and husband, Ted, Richard Papert and wife, Rhonda, and Charles Papert. He was a beloved and tireless story reader to his six grandchildren: Stefanie (Hinman) Meyers, Ben and Kati Hinman, Daniel, Sam and Nicole Papert and two great-grandchildren, Thomas and Zachary Meyers. Alan was born in Pretoria, South Africa to Betty and Jack Papert. After studying engineering at the University of Witwatersrand, he worked for a few years as a consulting engineer before moving to Manchester, England where he worked for Metrovicks, a company known for building the first commercial transistor computer. Alan intended to travel extensively, with England as his first stop, until he met Gloria and subsequently married her within a few months. They made their first home in Manchester and eventually moved to London with their three children. In 1972, the family emigrated to America where Alan's brother, Seymour, had created Logo, the first computer language for children. Alan and Seymour together started their business, General Turtle, developing a seminal computer system for children's education. Logo and the turtle became notable milestones in the fields of computer science, education and artificial intelligence (AI), and their legacy lives on to this day. Unfortunately, in the 1970s, the company was before its time from a commercial perspective, and Alan moved on to other work. This included helping create one of the first word processors for the legal profession at LCS, a desktop aircraft simulator at Pacer Systems, and the control boards for MRI scanners and other medical devices at Analogic Corporation. Alan's love of math, engineering and his intellectual curiosity continued throughout his life. He always looked for a solution to any problem, from how to incorporate philosophy into an elementary school classroom to raising awareness of Pemphigus, the rare autoimmune disease from which he suffered for many years. One of the very last puzzles he solved was to identify the cause of the malfunctioning alarm on his hospital bed. Alan and Gloria spent 20 years as active members of the community in Newburyport. In 2018, they moved to Brooksby Village in Peabody, Massachusetts. Alan was extremely well read with a deep and broad base of knowledge, and was especially interested in world politics and current events. Alan's passion for educational equality and inclusivity stemmed from his upbringing in South Africa. He was a strong supporter of Small Solutions, an organization whose goal was for every child to have a laptop and equal access to education. At Brooksby he was part of the Diversity Committee. He was also known as the Projector Man, being relied on to operate the AV equipment for the weekly movie night. Alan was well known for his quiet intelligence, thoughtful manner, kind and gentle nature, and his trademark red suspenders. The family would like to thank the staff of Beverly Hospital and of Brooksby Village for all their care. In lieu of flowers, please direct donations to the International Pemphigus and Pemphigoid Foundation at http://www.pemphigus.org For more information or to register in the online guestbook, please visit www.stanetskyhymansonsalem.com.

Rowley, MA - Cheryl Rae Cutt Ehlers, 74, of Rowley, passed away peacefully on September 15th, 2020, at Lahey Hospital & Medical Center in Burlington. Cheryl was born on June 10,1946, in the small farming community of Hallock, Minnesota, to Virgirl and Nora Cutt, n&eacute;e Peterson. Right from the start, Cheryl didn't play by the rules. Never satisfied by the expectations of her gender, she spent the majority of her youth attending to her family's dairy herd. The hard work of rural life didn't come without its payoffs though: she forged a close relationship with her father, became an accomplished rider on her horse, Pretty Boy, and reigned, albeit only for her region, as the Minnesota Dairy Princess. The rural charm of northwestern Minnesota couldn't hold her, and soon after she wed the love of her life, Pete M. Ehlers, on April 15,1967, they left Hallock, Minn., to make it on their own. They first settled in Bismarck, North Dakota, where Cheryl raised their two boys and worked an odd job or two to support her husband's burgeoning career as an itinerant steel worker. But with the desire to have a career of her own, she first managed and later owned Construction Specialities, Inc., proudly becoming one of the first female owners of a construction company in the Upper Midwest. Afterwards, Cheryl and Pete temporarily moved to Vilamoura, Portugal, where she immersed herself in the community, making lasting friendships with those she met. In 1990, Cheryl and Pete returned stateside, where they bought a few acres of land in Rowley, Mass. and built a house of their own design; a home that acted as a beloved gathering place for their close friends and immediate family. Cheryl was preceded in death by her mother Nora Peterson Cutt and father Virgil Cutt, Dianne Cutt sister and Carroll Cutt Potrament. Cheryl is preceded by her sons, Shane M. (Mary) Ehlers and Shelley R. (Pia) Ehlers; his daughter, Jennifer A. (Keith) Hembre and her family; his grandchildren, Travers H. Doane, Erica M. Dewitt, Easton J. Ehlers, Christian Ehlers and Hannah Ehlers. A private graveside service will be held at Main Street Cemetery, Rowley, on September 23, 2020 at 11 a.m. In lieu of flowers please send donations to the Alzheimer and Dementia organizations for research. To light a memorial candle or to leave a message of condolence, please visit www.fsrobertsandson.com. Arrangements entrusted to F. S. Roberts & Son Funeral Home of Rowley.
