Rowley - Anna Maria (Mary) Fronczek passed away peacefully on July 1, 2020 in Rowley, Mass. three months from her 105th birthday. Mary was born in Dartmouth, Mass., the daughter of Peter Bollea and Angelina (Regis) Bollea. She had a brother, Joseph Bollea and a sister Anne (Bollea) Johnson who have predeceased her. Mary grew up in the Cross Roads section of Dartmouth above the family grocery store/gas station in an area in which almost every home was occupied by a family relative. She had a wonderful and rich childhood playing with her numerous cousins and attending family gatherings.She attended Dartmouth High School while also working in the family store, delivering groceries out of the back of a Chevrolet truck to residents in Dartmouth and New Bedford during The Great Depression. After graduation she worked at the W.T. Grant department store for 13 years as an outstanding salesperson primarily in the furniture and men's clothing departments. It is while at Grants that she met her future husband, Thaddeus (Ted) Fronczek. They were married in 1946, soon after Ted was discharged from the army following WWII.Mary and Ted moved to the Smith Mills area of Dartmouth where Ted built the family home. They had three children, Peter, Jeffrey (deceased in 1995), and Pamela. They enjoyed a long and loving marriage of 47 years until Ted's passing in 1993. It was a relationship that set the proper example for their children. Mary spent her time raising the children and running the household. Her skills at managing a limited budget were legendary within the family and allowed her children to attend college and begin their adult lives in a sound financial position. With the children grown, she worked as a waitress in several New Bedford area restaurants. She ended her working career at the Outlet Company department store where she again earned accolades as an outstanding salesperson. Whatever job Mary held she did it with a passion and with an attitude that she would strive to be the best at what she was doing. Mary leaves behind her son Peter and his wife Adele of Bethany Beach, Delaware and daughter Pamela Sanford and husband Ken of Rowley, Mass.

She graduated from Newburyport High School in 1964. Pat went on to secretarial school in Boston before working for the City of Newburyport for many years. She was employed with the Newburyport Redevelopment Authority and later secretary to Mayor Byron J. Mathews and Assistant to City Clerk George H. Lawler, Jr. Pat served as Newburyport Ward 5 City Councilor in 1972 and 1973. Pat's second home was the Institution for Savings where she was working at the time of her passing. As a 38-year employee of the Bank, Pat was truly the 'face' of the Institution for Savings. She started her career in 1982 as a teller when the Bank had only two offices and 20 employees. Her genuine warmth and desire to help everyone made her a favorite among her many customers who still came to her for assistance even after she was promoted to Clerk of the Corporation in 1995 and, later, Vice President in 2019. She loved going to work every day, she loved her co-workers and she loved being a part of the Bank. Pat also loved the City of Newburyport where she grew up, lived and worked and was passionate about making the days and lives better for everyone she knew. Right up until her passing, Pat remained enthusiastically involved in the community of Newburyport, having served on many boards and contributing her resources and time to so many non-profit organizations. Pat's love extended beyond her city, friends and co-workers. She was a passionate lover of cats and volunteered for many years at the Merrimack River Feline Rescue Society. Pat also enjoyed Greek food, thanks to her family heritage, and was known to be an early and frequent patron of the Greek Food Festival during Yankee Homecoming every year. Pat was also an avid Boston Celtics fan; when she wasn't enjoying games from the Bank's season ticket seats, she would stay up all hours to cheer on the team from home. Pat often said that one of the highlights of her life was meeting her beloved Tommy Heinsohn several years ago at the Boston Garden's center court. Pat was honored in 2018 when she was recognized with a coveted Paul Harris Fellow by the Newburyport Rotary Club, an award given to those who follow the Rotary mantra "service above self". In 2019, she received the Peace Prize Award from the Newburyport Human Right's Commission, an honor recognizing those who embody the values of the commission - inclusion, diversity and acceptance. Pat's heart of gold touched the lives of many. We will miss her beautiful eyes and smile, sense of humor, intelligence and most importantly her kindness. She was and will remain a true inspiration for all of us. Please honor Pat's memory today by doing something kind to make someone's day better. That is what Pat would want from all of us. She is survived by her sister and brother-in-law, Gayle C. and Charles F. Smith of Newburyport. Pat was preceded in death by her nephew, Stanley V. Boyd and great-nephew Jeremy V. Boyd. Pat also leaves behind Venus Chase, of New Hampshire who is Jeremy's mother. A private graveside service will be held for family and close friends at the Belleville Cemetery in Newburyport.

US Special Committee on Aging

The United States Senate's Special Committee on Aging, currently chaired by Senator Susan M. Collins (R-ME), 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!
