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.

Newbury - It is with aching hearts and tears that we announce the sudden passing of our beloved daughter, niece, granddaughter and friend Anna Gavel. Anna passed away on May 17, 2023, at 27 years and 5 days-old. Anna is the daughter of Paul Gavel, of Salem, NH and Heather Tabacco, of Mooresville, NC. Anna graduated from Triton High School and attended NECC and Middlesex Community College. Her studies included Business Administration and Medical Assistance and more recently was studying toward a nursing degree. Anna loved all creatures great and small, from dogs, horses and chickens. Her aunt Jenn got her hooked on horseback riding at an early age. She spent many happy days after school at Cressbrook Farm doing whatever she could to help and later at Cornerstone Farm where she won many ribbons. Anna ended her riding career by competing in Maryland at the Capital Challenge Horse Show. She lived for the excitement of competitive horse showing each year. It taught her to be confident in her abilities and trust in herself. Cornerstone remained a source of comfort and friendship. At 22, Anna was diagnosed with Leukemia. Her world turned upside down and she was hospitalized for months at a time. Luck was on her side - as she was fortunate to have Dr. David Avigan as her oncologist. Dr. Avigan and his team of exceptional nurses and assistants brought her through 5 years of treatments and stem cell transplant. We want to thank them for all they did for her and know that those at Shapiro and Feldberg held a very special place in Anna's heart. The support and care that Anna received got her through many difficult days. We will never be able to thank them enough. During her time in the hospital, she dreamed of getting a dog. That dream came true when Daisy was found at a NH shelter. Their love was immediate and Daisy became her baby. Anna shared a home with her boyfriend, Ryan Carney, and Daisy in Merrimac, MA. They recently renovated and decorated the home together. She loved vegetable gardening and cooking, especially wonderful desserts and pastries that she always had freshly made. Since Anna grew up loving horses and was always on a farm, she inevitably became "The Chicken Lady" starting with five chickens and recently added more to their coop; always hoping to add more animals and have a farm of her own one day. When Anna and Ryan met in 2017, she knew he was the one, and she quickly became a key part of the Carney family. They shared family events, beach days, holidays, vacations, and of course going to Red Sox and Patriots games. But more importantly, Anna filled a role for the Carney family that we didn't know we needed. She did what she does best and she brought us all closer together, making us more unified. When Anna came into our lives she made holidays important and birthdays feel special again, always finding someone or something to celebrate as a family. Anna will be deeply missed by us all. She was known for her thoughtfulness and great sense of humor, for knowing every word to every song and never hesitating to belt it out, and for always giving Richard the business and getting it right back. Anna had worked at Liberty Law, Newburyport and recently had taken a position at Mirra Co of Georgetown, MA. She was so happy to be part of Mirra Co. A special thanks to the Mirra family for their love and support of Anna. It will never be forgotten. In addition to her parents, Anna is survived by her sweetheart, Ryan Carney of Merrimac, MA. Grandparents Gary and Ginny Brown of Newbury, Ma. Grandmother Karen Gavel of No Grafton MA; her maternal great-grandmother, Mary Blake of Reading, MA; her sister and brother, Tanya Gavel and Martin Gavel of Salem, NH. Her sister, Amber Trumann and son Franklin of Bridgton, ME. Many aunts, uncles, cousins and friends who enriched her life. And the Carney family who made her a part of their lives. They were so loved by Anna. Daisy is waiting for her to come home and so are we.... Family and friends may call from 4 to 8 p.m. on Wednesday, May 24, 2023 at the Twomey, LeBlanc, & Conte Funeral Home, 193 High St., Newburyport, MA 01950. Anna's funeral service and burial will be private. In lieu of flowers, contributions in Anna's memory can be made to Dr. Avigan's Research Fund at BIDMC by visiting Or by check to Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center with Dr. David Avigan's Research Fund in the memo line sent to BIDMC Office of Philanthropy, 529 Main St, 4th Flr, Charlestown, MA 02129. Please consider "Be the Match", 500 North 5th Street, Minneapolis, MS 55401 - the New Hampshire Humane Society or an animal shelter of your choice.

Salisbury - In loving memory of Donald Franklin Pike, 86, of Salisbury who was called home to be with the Lord on May 19, 2023, after a brief illness. He was a faithful and dedicated husband, loving father, devoted brother and steadfast friend and he will be missed by all who knew him. Don was born on September 4, 1936, in Amesbury to Franklin and Dorothy (Rogers) Pike and raised in Salisbury. After graduating from Amesbury High School in 1954 he attended Essex Agricultural School studying horticulture and landscape design until his graduation in 1956. He then attended the University of Massachusetts for an additional year in 1957 before he became an apprentice plumber. After training he went on to a long career at the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard as a nuclear inspector until his retirement. Don met the love of his life, Joan, while they both attended Amesbury High School. He was a football player, who would captain the team in 1954 and she was a majorette. They married after he finished college and settled in Salisbury where they raised their four children Tim, Tom, Stephanie, and Julie. For all who knew him, Don was a force of nature; hard working, dedicated, loving, kind, generous, and faithful. He was always ready to share a story or joke to lighten the mood. Most of all he was determined to provide for his family and give them the life he felt they deserved.

Born to Peter and Agnes (Wilmot) Paul, Terry was raised on Eel Ground Reservation, Miramichi, NB Canada, and attended nursing school in New Brunswick, then moved to Boston to pursue her career. Soon after, she met and married the love of her life, Alfred J Smith. Terry and Al raised their five children in several Massachusetts towns where Terry was a dedicated nurse for many years. She retired from Anna Jaques Hospital in Newburyport, and she and Al enjoyed many years of traveling, eventually settling in Port Charlotte, FL. where they made some very dear friends and thrived in the Florida lifestyle. Terry enjoyed regular trips back to Miramichi through the years, and was proud to share her Mi'kmaq heritage with her children and grandchildren. One of her favorite times to visit was during the annual Powwow, where she could watch the Native dances and see the eagles soar with the beat of the drums. News from her extended family always brightened her day. Terry is survived by her children and their families Kevin and Judy (MacCannell) Smith, Karen Janowski, Sue McDonald and Heather (Kuske) Smith. She loved to share stories with her friends about her nine grandchildren and five great-grandchildren, and many nieces and nephews. She was pre-deceased by her husband Al in 2017, and her sons Paul in 2016 and Al Jr in 2020. She was also pre-deceased by her brothers J. Willard Paul, Gordon Paul and Kenneth Paul. The family will celebrate Terry's life with a gathering later this summer.

Rowley - John Edward (Jack) Grundstrom, 91, of Rowley, passed away peacefully at home, surrounded as in life, by his loving family. He was born at Cable Memorial Hospital in Ipswich, MA June 16, 1931 to John F. and Abbie E. (Savage) Grundstrom, both lifelong residents of Rowley. He attended the Rowley Grammar Schools, Newburyport High School and Ipswich High School where he graduated with the class of 1949. This is where he met the love of his life Helen (Hill), who predeceased him in 2019 after 67 years of marriage. The joy of his entire life was his family. Wife Helen and children, Deborah Grundstrom, John (Gump) Grundstrom and his wife Karen, Jan Saunders and her husband Joseph. Grandchildren Kristina Hardy and her husband, Mike, Alyssa Grundstrom, Patrick Saunders and his wife Kelsey, Kelsi Rocha- Grundstrom and her husband Denys and Sean Saunders; great-grandchildren, Andres Rocha- Grundstrom, Fischer and Marin Saunders. He has especially enjoyed his family trips to Disney World and fishing in Key West. He joined the US Navy in 1950 where he volunteered for special services in Naval Aviation and was assigned to VF 71, a jet fighter squadron assigned to Quonset Point RI. From there he served a tour of duty in Korea aboard the carrier USS Bon Homme Richard CVA 41. Among the service metals he earned his most cherished was from the South Korean people as a token of their thanks. Following his Korean duty, he enjoyed a stay in Cuba where he had the opportunity to visit Port Au Prince, Haiti and other scenic areas. Next, Jack cruised the Mediterranean aboard the carrier USS Bennington where he visited many exotic ports including Istanbul Turkey, Athens Greece, Genoa Italy, Cannes France, Madrid Spain, Lisbon Portugal, and Gibraltar. After his four years of Naval service, he worked many local jobs including boat building for Hilmer Boat Co. in Ipswich, an electrician for the Boston and Maine Railroad, carpentry for John Carey, snow removal for the Town of Rowley, quartz crystal development for Western Electric Co. in North Andover and as always, a side job digging clams. During this time Jack attended night classes at Northern Essex CC, Lowell Technological Institute and then graduated from Wentworth University as a Heating Ventilation and Air Conditioning Engineer. After operating his own clam shucking business, he took a job with Cargocaire Engineering Corp. moving up to Field Service Engineer and Service Manager. These positions took him all over the US and the world training maintenance crews in the operation of dehumidification equipment. This included many trips to Canada, Mexico, Alaska and Puerto Rico. Jack also enjoyed business trips to England, Sweden, Hawaii, Germany, Japan and the Philippine Islands where he witnessed the beginning of the 1968 eruption of the volcanic mountain Mayon in Legaspa City, Luzon. His most interesting assignments were the start-up and prototype testing of fifty-four Titan II missile sites in Kansas, Arkansas and Arizona, also the start-up and testing in Davao City, Philippines of a system installed in copra tankers to prevent spontaneous combustion and sinking at sea. This trip entailed a forty two day trans Pacific tanker trip back to Long Beach CA. He worked on the first nuclear powered cargo ship Savannah while it was anchored in NY Harbor next to the Statue of Liberty and on the launch platform of a space shuttle at Kennedy Space Center in FL. He supervised dry down and testing of the oil storage tanks at the Valdez end of the Alaska pipeline and the start-up and testing of the dehumidification system on the shakedown cruise of the first LNG tanker launched out of Pascagoula, MS. Others interesting assignments were Wilson Greatbatch in Buffalo NY in the early development of lithium batteries, working on the top floor of the Time Life Building in New York City in the preservation of historic films and photos and working in the storage caves along the Hudson River some of which were up to seven hundred feet below the surface. After his retirement from Cargocaire Jack went to work for Charles Hazzard, owner of State Street Associates of Newburyport as the property manager of his real estate company. He had earned his Real Estate Sales and Brokers licenses in MA, NH and FL. After several years Jack purchased the property management division and founded State Street Properties of Newburyport Inc. He continued, along with his children, to manage the existing properties and contracted with the US Marshall Service to manage properties that had been seized for drug trafficking until his retirement in 1998. Jack did not stop working at retirement. He had been on the Rowley River since childhood not only digging clams but with his own herring boat. He found the attention to the clam flats to be lacking so he volunteered to fill the position of Shellfish Constable for the Town of Rowley. He successfully completed the Shellfish Constable course at the Massachusetts Maritime Academy and became a certified Shellfish Constable. He then went on to become a student of Dr. David Belding, who wrote the bible on Massachusetts shellfish. He learned all that was known on raising soft shell clams, oysters and quahogs for this area. He then experimented with, promoted, and engaged very successfully in programs enhancing the shellfisheries in Rowley and on the North Shore. "Some time at eve when the tide is low, I shall slip my moorings and sail away, With no response to the friendly hail Of kindred craft in the busy bay. In the silent hush of the twilight pale, When the night stoops down to embrace the day, And the voices call at the waters flow- Some time at eve when the tide is low, I shall slip my mooring and sail away." -Elizabeth Clark Hardy- At his request there will be no services. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in his name to: Any local veterans' organization of your choice or Mass Audubon, 87 Perkins Row, Topsfield MA 01983. *Please include a note requesting it be directed to 'marsh restoration or coastal resilience'. To light a memorial candle or to leave a message of condolence, please visit Arrangements entrusted to F. S. Roberts & Son Funeral Home of Rowley.
