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.

Newburyport - Joan V. O'Brien, Professor emerita in Classics from Southern Illinois University, author of 'The Transformation of Hera', 'In the Beginning: Creation Myths from Ancient Mesopotamia, Israel and Greece' and 'The Guide to Sophocles' Antigone', died peacefully in her sleep at the age of 96. Born in Meriden, CT, she graduated from Albertus Magnus College in New Haven, then taught in Hamden, CT for two years before entering the community of the Dominican Sisters of St. Mary of the Springs as a novice in 1949. She began her teaching career in 1952 at Dominican Academy on E68th St. in New York, where she taught Latin and Greek by day and slept in her classroom at night. Every morning, she and her colleague would scurry around to clear the classroom of any traces of their personal belongings. She always told of the day the students found her stockings and other paraphernalia hanging in the bathroom. She received her Ph.D in Classics from Fordham University in 1961 and taught at Albertus Magnus College. In 1967 she left the Dominican community and joined the Classics department at Southern Illinois University in Carbondale, Illinois, where she spent the next 30 years bringing the ancient Greek playwrights to vivid life, leading the students in the staging the plays of Sophocles and Aeschylus. Joan was a master teacher. She cried at the thought of retirement. She led many student groups to Rome and Greece, opening their eyes to the treasures of antiquity there. In researching her book The Transformation of Hera, Joan spent several summers bicycling to archeological digs on the island of Samos. She traveled widely, from Greece and Italy to the USSR and Egypt, swimming in the beloved ocean whenever possible, whether it be the Atlantic, the Mediterranean, the Adriatic or the Ionian! Joan did not wish to be called Doctor. She much preferred Joan. She was devoted to the Catholic Church and her commitment to the underdog was unwavering. She donated large portions of her income to the poor. She was always there to provide a listening ear to anyone in need. She dressed simply, paying no attention to the fashion of the day. She was very partial to her camouflage-design pork pie hat and for the last several years she sported a fleece hat with fur trim (a gift from a dear friend) that stopped people in their tracks. She looked like Russian royalty. Her attire was so odd that over the years, she was stopped several times by the cops, who thought she must have wandered away from some nearby asylum. Once, when she was staying in a motel to officiate at her niece's wedding, she decided to take an early morning walk from her hotel to find the local grocery store. A police cruiser stopped and the cop asked her what she was doing walking along such a busy road. This was not her first traffic stop. She answered, "I'm looking for a banana." He gave her a ride to the grocery store in the cruiser. Music was at the heart and soul of Joan O'Brien. She began piano lessons at age five and never stopped, playing Mozart, Grieg and her beloved Beethoven well into her 90's. She hosted numerous informal gatherings of faculty and friends at her home in Carbondale, which always featured food (potluck – Joan was no cook), laughter, piano-playing and singing –everything from 'When Irish Eyes Are Smiling' to church hymns to The Hut-Sut Song. Every church choir she ever joined (and she joined plenty) was delighted to add her strong tenor voice. Singing was central to her life. She had many friends, former students and a band of friends from her Dominican days that never broke apart. They were all devoted to one another until the end. Her Catholic faith was her guiding light. She was devoted to the church, but at the same time very involved in the push for change, for the ordination of women. She was there for some of the first meeting of The Voice of the Faithful in their push for transparency about child abuse by priests. In her last years, she moved to Newburyport, MA to be near her niece. There, she quickly became a beloved figure, known simply to townsfolk as 'Aunt Joan'. She walked to Immaculate Conception Church for daily Mass, rain or shine, winter or summer. Traffic stopped when she crossed the street; lucky thing, because she often neglected to look both ways! She will be missed by her many nieces and nephews and her devoted community of friends, but she will have a joyous reunion with her God and all the saints who have preceded her! All are invited to Joan's Funeral Mass at 10:30 a.m. on Friday, December 9, 2022 at Immaculate Conception Church, followed by burial at St. Mary's Cemetery. Her niece Kate Sullivan and other family will greet guests in the Church from 10 to 10:30 a.m. before her Mass. The Twomey, LeBlanc, & Conte Funeral Home 193 High St. Newburyport, MA 01950 is assisting Ms. O'Brien's family with her arrangements.

He was educated at Bishop Fenwick High School where he graduated in 1964 and was later inducted into their athletic hall of fame. After serving in the Naval Reserves, he met and married the love of his life, Beverly (Rideout) Tardiff in 1968. They enjoyed fifty three years of marriage together. Filled with the entrepreneurial spirit, Paul walked away from his job at a printing company to go out on his own.

Paul and Beverly started Defiance Graphics in Rowley in 1971 and ran it successfully for nearly 40 years. In 1976, as a way to give back to the community, Paul became a lifelong Rotarian. He served as a president of the Ipswich Rotary Club and was a seven time Paul Harris Fellow. During his active years with Rotary, he constantly advocated for Polio Plus and women's rights.

Paul is survived by his wife Beverly and their two children, Brian (Melissa) Tardiff of Spring Hill, TN and Paula (Matt) Jones of Danvers and seven grandchildren – Justin (Olivia), Bradley, Kelsey, Ally and Sarah Tardiff of Spring Hill, TN and Ellie and Luke Jones of Danvers and a brother, Ray (Sandy) Tardiff of Conway, SC. He was preceded in death by his parents, Luke and Georgianna Tardiff and sister Constance (Sonny) Borowski.

Salisbury - Louis D. Masiello passed away at his home in Salisbury, MA on November 23, 2022. Lou was born in Chelsea, MA on March 31, 1938, and was the son of the late Louis A. Masiello and Antoinette A. (Montecalvo) Masiello. Lou is survived by his beloved wife of 53 years, Dianne (Noe) Masiello; their three children, Louis C. Masiello, and his wife Renee of Holliston, MA, Gina Britton, and her husband David of Medway, MA, and Candice Skiba, and her husband Chris of Newburyport, MA. He also leaves eight cherished grandchildren; Anthony, Molly, Joseph, Jake, Louis, Patrick, Thomas, and William. Lou graduated in 1956 from Lawrence High School, then earned a Bachelor's Degree in Electronic Engineering from Lowell Technological Institute in 1960, and a Master's of Public Administration from Northeastern University in 1975. He served in the Air Force Reserve from 1960 to 1965, then began his forty years of service to the United States Defense Department as a civilian engineer, mostly in the Air Force Electronic Systems Center (ESC) at Hanscom Air Force Base. During that time, Lou was one of eleven Air Force civilian employees selected to attend the Air Force Command and Staff College at Maxwell Air Force Base. He managed the acquisition of various Air Force command, control, and communications systems for use by the U.S. Air Force and U.S. allied nations. He worked on ground, shipboard, and airborne systems, including eighteen years assigned to the U.S. Air Force Airborne Warning and Control System (AWACS). Lou retired in 2002 and was honored with the Outstanding Civilian Service to the Department of the Air Force Medal. His commitment to public service extended beyond the Air Force to his community as well. He has served on many boards, commissions, and non-profit service organizations. He is a past chairman of the Salisbury Board of Health, a former Secretary of the Board of Directors for the SCTV, a member of the Board of Directors of the Salisbury Beach Betterment Association, a member of the Advisory Committee to the Salisbury Beach Partnership, and was a past volunteer for Roof Overhead Collaborative, an organization which serves the needs of the homeless in the greater Newburyport area. Lou was a volunteer at Bread & Roses, and a dedicated parishioner of Star of the Sea Church. He has served as a member and vice chair of the Salisbury Planning Board. His work on the Salisbury Planning Board led him to also being appointed to the position of Salisbury Commissioner on the Merrimack Valley Planning Commission. He was also a long-time member of the Newburyport based discussion group known as New and Views – an involvement he treasured. Lou has long had an interest in good government and Democratic Party politics. For many years he has been an activist in the Democratic Party and for 14 years served as Chair of the Salisbury Democratic Town Committee. Lou enjoyed playing drums for most of his life, but his avocation was his keen interest in history, foreign policy, politics and his community. Family and friends may call from 10:00 to 11:30 A.M. on Saturday December 3, 2022 at the Twomey, LeBlanc, & Conte Funeral Home 193 High St. Newburyport, MA 01950.

West Newbury - Robert "Bob" Joseph Smith, 96 years old, passed away comfortably on Saturday, November 26, 2022 surrounded by his loving family. Bob is survived by his sister Genevieve Frass and Margarete Waye, his sons, Richard Smith and his wife Nikki, Robert Smith and his wife Molly, David Smith and his wife Anne, Chris Smith and his wife Amy, and son-in-law Raymond Hemond, his grandchildren, Jennifer Tremblay and her husband Derek, Joe Hemond and his wife Marianna, Stephanie Powell and her husband Adam, Patrick Smith and his wife Jenna, Samantha Smith, Sarah Smith, Benjamin Smith and his wife Jesse, Matthew Smith, great-grandchildren Twyla Hemond, Natashia Hemond, Olivia Powell, Jake Tremblay, Nick Tremblay, Greyson Powell, and Madeline Powell. Bob was preceded in death by the love of his life, his wife of fifty years, Charlene Taylor Smith, and his loved daughter Julia Hemond, and his younger brother Joseph Smith. Bob began a passion for flight early in his life. He attended the Manhattan School of Aviation and Trades in New York learning about the science of flight. He served his country during WWII, entering the Navy in 1944 and received medals for service in the American and European Theaters, as well as Victory and Commendation. He was honorably discharged in 1946. Bob then reentered the Navy for the opportunity to attend pilot training. Shortly after pilot training Bob advanced to Parks College in St. Louis Missouri, receiving a Bachelor of Science degree in Aeronautical Engineering. After graduating, he began working at Westinghouse Electric Corporation (Aviation Gas Turbine Division) in Kansas City Missouri. Bob met Charlene during that time. They then married and moved to Massachusetts where Bob began a long career of thirty-two years in aviation engineering at General Electric in Lynn Massachusetts, retiring in 1987. Bob continued his lifelong passion for flight, spending time building, designing, modifying, flying and "fixing" model airplanes. He passed his passion for flight on to his children and grandchildren. Bob's time spent at the model field flying remote controlled airplanes, sharing time, and helping other RC enthusiasts, friends, and family were the happiest of his times. Bob's greatest passion, however, was being a loving husband, brother, father, grandfather, great-grandfather, and friend, touching and influencing countless lives, taking on each day with gratitude and a smile. He will truly be missed and will never, ever, be forgotten. There will be a celebration of life held in Bob's honor with a visitation from 5:00 to 8:00 P.M. on, Thursday December 1, 2022 at the Twomey LeBlanc, & Conte Funeral Home 193 High St, Newburyport, MA.

Groveland - Janet E. Connors passed away in the early morning of November 26 after a brief illness. Born in Haverhill to Albert B. Paradis, Sr. And Gladys L. Paradis on October 1, 1932. Janet grew up in Haverhill and attended the Haverhill Public Schools. She worked at Allen Shoe in Haverhill for many years, but eventually Jan joined her husband Jim to work for Western Electric, eventually becoming AT&T. She worked in the office as an exceptional secretary with short hand dictation, proofreading skills, and typing speeds that were highly regarded. Janet was humble in giving herself any credit, but others recognized her many endearing qualities and talents. She knitted intricate themed sweaters for her grandchildren when they were young. Her special chicken wings, fudge, and pineapple cream pie are family favorites, and her math, accounting and attention to details to any task were remarkable. Janet was a proud, independent woman who recently celebrated her 90th birthday. Providing her love, time, devotion and care to her family was of utmost importance to Janet. She always put their needs above her own and cared for family members throughout her life. Many a day she sat in her chair praying the rosary for her loved ones. Always foremost in her thoughts and prayers, was her dearly beloved late husband James Connors whom she married on April 7, 1956 and spent 47 devoted years until his passing in 2004. With great sadness Janet leaves behind her son, Timothy Connors, his lifelong partner, Mary Handley, daughter Sandra Ouellet, son-in-law, Kevin Ouellet, grandson Tyler Kevin Ouellet, granddaughter Courtney Janet Ouellet, and brother Stanley Paradis and wife Donna. Janet was predeceased by her older brother Albert Paradis, Jr. She will sadly be missed by all her family and friends. Services will be held at Holy Family Church in Amesbury, on Saturday, December 3, at 10 A.M. and burial will follow at Holy Angels Cemetery in Plaistow, NH. Arrangements were by Paul C. Rogers Family Funeral Home, 2 Hillside Avenue, Amesbury.

27 Nov 2022 at 4:00pm
Concord - Dr. Bob Papaioanou, the son of Greek immigrants whose distinguished career as a physician spanned private practice and emergency rooms in small town New England and the highest peaks of corporate America, and who was a beacon of strength for his family even as he confronted his own medical afflictions, died November 25, 2022, at Hospice House in Concord, New Hampshire with his wife and daughters by his side. He was 90 years old. Dr. Papaioanou, who had lived in New Hampshire for more than 30 years, was born Xenophon L. Papaioanou on July 20, 1932, in Springfield, Massachusetts. His parents, Vasilike (Legeros) and Leonidas Papaioanou, known as Vicki and Louis, wanted an American-sounding sobriquet for their son. When his mother heard a neighbor summoning her own son home for supper with shouts of "Bobby!" the nickname search was over. Dr. Papaioanou attended Bowdoin College in Brunswick, Maine for two years before transferring to American International College in Springfield to be closer to his family. In 1952, he was approached by Lola Kamaros, a fellow AIC student who had been dispatched as an envoy by a girlfriend who was interested in dating the handsome Greek undergrad. Yes, he knew of her friend, Bob told Lola, "but who are you?" It was an encounter he would recall with a smile until the final days of his life, 69 years after he and Miss Kamaros were married. After college, Tufts Medical School beckoned and the newlyweds were off to Boston. Dr. Papaioanou thrived at Tufts and completed his residency at St. Elizabeth's Hospital in the city's Brighton neighborhood. The Greek Orthodox doctor was something of a novelty at the Catholic facility, so much so that a confused nun admonished him for missing Mass. It was also at St. Elizabeth's where, in 1957, Mrs. Papaioanou gave birth to the first of the couple's four daughters. After his residency, Dr. and Mrs. Papaioanou moved their young family to a Revolutionary War-era house on the Merrimack River in Amesbury, where he went into private practice as a general practitioner and established deep and lasting friendships across northern Essex County. Patients found in Dr. Papaioanou a caregiver of profound humanity and good humor, qualities that defined the arc of his life. The Papaioanous eventually moved to nearby Haverhill, where Dr. Papaioanou served as Director of Emergency Medicine at Hale Hospital and, years later, as Medical Director of Whittier Rehabilitation Hospital. In 1974, Dr. Papaioanou's career went in a new direction, when he began working for the financial conglomerate Prudential, initially based out of the Prudential Tower in Boston and later, as Vice President and Medical Director, at company headquarters in Newark, New Jersey. Fate intervened in 1982, when he was diagnosed with relapsing remitting Multiple Sclerosis. As with all challenges in his life, Dr. Papaioanou faced his diagnosis with fortitude and no complaints, concerned only with the impact on his family. Neither MS (fortunately his case was comparatively mild) nor the Alzheimer's disease Dr. Papaioanou would endure much later dimmed his enthusiasm for life and all its wonders. He loved dogs, especially his German Shepherds. He was an accomplished painter and photographer, hobbies he passed to his children and grandchildren. And, from his Datsun 240Z to his Boston Whaler to the occasional motorcycle, he had an irrepressible love of speed and fresh air. By any measure, he was a renaissance man, though his humility was such that he would have scoffed at the term. In the twilight of his life, long after he put his daughters through college, long after he cared for his parents and mother-in-law, and long after he taught his grandchildren how to fish, the center of Dr. Papaioanou's universe remained his beloved wife, Lola. From their early courtship in Springfield, when he struggled to take her out because he couldn't get a Saturday night off from his job tending bar at The Welcome Inn ("there are six other nights in the week", said his boss, who also happened to be his father) to gingerly slow dancing to Willie Nelson in old age, their love story was a triumph; illness never took away his sweetness and generosity. "The best thing I ever did," he told his grandchildren at his 90th birthday party, "was marry your grandmother." As go the lyrics of their favorite Willie Nelson song, "If I had my way, we would never grow old." In addition to his wife of 69 years, Lola Kamaros Papaioanou, Dr. Papaioanou is survived by their daughters, Maria Papaioanou Gray, Vicki Papaioanou Murphy, Iris Papaioanou Hardin, Amy Papaioanou Moffett, and their partners; their grandchildren Jack Gray, Rose Moore, Caitlin Gertsev, Krista Murphy, Riley Murphy, Louis Roberts, Adam Roberts, Madeline McGonagle, and step-grandchildren Sarah, Laura, and Philip Hardin, and Caleb Moffett. Dr. Papaioanou is also survived by several great-grandchildren and many nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his parents, mother-in-law Mary Kamaros, sister Helen Misogianes, several sisters-and-brothers-in-law, nieces and nephews, and dear friends. The family would like to thank the doctors, nurses, and hospice staff who so lovingly cared for Dr. Papaioanou in the same compassionate tradition that he cared for his own patients. Arrangements are private. A memorial service will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations in Dr. Papaioanou's memory can be made to the Alzheimer's Association at alz.org or 15 Constitution Dr Suite 1G, Bedford, NH 03110.

Haverhill - Haverhill: Cynthia Lynn Harris, formerly of Amesbury, passed away surrounded by her family on November 21, 2022, after a courageous battle with esophageal cancer. Born on May 24, 1957, to Ralph and Martha Harris, Cindy grew up in Burlington, MA with her sisters Robyn Thorstensen, Vicki Leary, and Margaret Gibson. Cindy moved to Amesbury, MA where she spent her adult years and raised her son, Blake Harris. Cindy embodied strength, lightheartedness, love, and perseverance. She found joy in putting others first while asking for little in return.
