West Newbury - R. Michael Fosburg of West Newbury, passed away on March 17, 2023, after a brief illness. Michael was born April 30, 1940, in Detroit and was adopted by Euvenza L. Lindbergh Fosburg and Robert L. Fosburg in September of 1940. In his early years, Michael's family lived in Detroit, Cleveland, Philadelphia, Warren, PA and Lexington, MA, where he attended high school and was graduated in 1958 as Class President and Best Dressed. Michael went on to be graduated from Williams College in 1962 with a BA in history and political science. He taught at Cushing Academy in MA and at the Dalton School in New York City. After earning an MA from Columbia University Michael taught history at the Stevens Institute of Technology, Douglass/Rutgers College, and Lesley University. Michael met his wife, Patricia, at Douglass/Rutgers College in 1970. In 1972, with son John R. Skibbee, Pat and Michael moved to Groveland, MA so that Michael had access to Boston libraries for his PhD thesis research. After teaching at Lesley University Michael moved into his second career as an executive recruiter in 1979. Subsequently he founded his own company, Quality Search, and worked successfully in that field until his retirement. In 1981, Michael and Pat's daughter Katharine E. Fosburg, was born. John, Kate, and Pat were the central joys of Michael's life. With the addition of his grandchildren Kane and Olivia Skibbee and his children's spouses, Kirsten and Matt, he was surrounded by an active and loving family who created endless beautiful memories together. Michael sang with the Cantemus Chorus for 20 years. He was an active member of the First Religious Society Unitarian Universalist Church in Newburyport, MA for 30 years where he read the weekly announcements to the congregation prior to worship for 14 years. Michael was active in fundraising and part of the team tasked with recruiting the newest reverend. Michael always had a love of history and geography; some might call him a history savant. He was able to recall dates, presidents, state capitals, sizes of cities by area and population. He loved pouring over maps and receiving postcards from anywhere that his friends and family visited. If you were a lucky single woman, Michael may very well have brought you a rose each year on Valentine's Day. Over the last 28 years, Michael loved spending time at his family lake house in Maine. He travelled with family and friends to Wales, France, England, Ecuador, Turkey, Egypt, Jordan, Israel, Romania, St. Kitts, Mexico, Costa Rica, Galapagos Islands, South Africa, Zambia, Austria, Zimbabwe, Italy, Greece, Ukraine, and Bulgaria, as well as extensively throughout the U.S. One of his favorite places to visit was a small village in Transylvania called Ujszekely, the home of the partner UU church. Michael was a high school athlete and a runner who had a life-long love of both playing and following sports. As well, Michael had a lifetime passion for music. Belonging to various choirs, including Cantemus Chorus, he was also a proficient piano player. He was a born performer and loved going to shows, as well as acting in local theater. Starting in his 40s, Michael joined the High Pointer's Club and climbed 37 individual U.S. state's highest peaks. Michael served as president of the Historical Society of Old Newbury. He was a faithful attendee at the Friday morning men's breakfast group at Angie's and was an enthusiastic participant in CODGERS zoom meetings (Certified Old Dudes Gathering for Entertainment and Recreation). Michael's most outstanding qualities were his unwavering dedication, love, and affection to and for other people, both family and friends. He took sincere joy in people. Wherever he went and whomever he met, he was genuinely interested in learning and knowing the context of people's lives and who they were as individuals. He was truly a person who wanted and needed people. He had an extraordinarily high degree of social intelligence. Michael loved people and was beloved by them. Michael will be sadly missed each and every day and lovingly remembered by his wife Pat, his son John, daughter-in-law Kirsten, daughter Kate and partner Matt, and his two grandchildren Kane and Olivia Skibbee, as well as by the hundreds of friends he brought into his life through the years. In lieu of flowers it would be meaningful if you would please consider donating to one of two important institutions in Michael's life: The First Religious Society Unitarian Universalist Church of Newburyport (FRSUU) at or Cantemus Chorus at His memorial service will be held at the First Religious Society, Unitarian Universalist, at 26 Pleasant Street in Newburyport, on April 1, 2023, at 1 p.m. Immediately following the service there will be time for us who knew and loved Michael to gather downstairs in the church building to share in our sadness at his loss, as well as to celebrate his amazing life.

Amesbury - Timothy Kirk Boyle departed this life on the 13th of March, passing peacefully from natural causes. Loved ones and friends will remember him the same way he reportedly arrived in this world: big, blue-eyed, and happy. Tim was born on the 16th of November in 1973 to the delight of his parents, William and Sharon (Gouldthorpe) Boyle of Newburyport. He was the family's first-born grandchild and showered with love. Tim's childhood was spent in the north end where he and his younger brother Christopher forged the friendships that carried them into adulthood. Loving brothers and best friends, the two made a memorable pair. As little boys, donning their orange life jackets, they'd zoom the family dinghy around Steephill Beach in Ipswich, not far from where the family dropped anchor most summer weekends. Together they developed a passion for boating, inspired by their father. A graduate of Newburyport High School, Tim knew that his life's work would be in the family trucking business - TC Leasing. From the first time he went to work with his father at 5 years old, he wanted his own tractor-trailer. He spent hours at the garage beginning at a young age - soaking up all the knowledge he could. As soon as he was eligible, he earned his CDL. For more than three decades he worked hard to ensure the family business was a success, ultimately managing operations following his father's retirement. He was a well-known member of the New England trucking community; a proud, repeat winner of the Coastal Truck & Auto Body Annual Truck Nationals for Best Truck/Trailer Combo (still running his trophy-worthy 1999 Peterbilt every day!); and an innovator whose custom designs caught the eye of Ohio-based MAC Trailer and landed him a showcase at the New England Truck Show. Away from work, Tim was known for giving the greatest hugs, especially by those lucky enough to receive them. He was at peace on the water and in the sun. Whether visiting Sandy Point, searching for the sandbar in Essex, or simply wading alongside his Mako at low tide – cold Miller Lite in hand – Tim could always be found swapping stories and poking fun amongst his favorite people. Finally, and only with maturity, came true love. On the deck of his riverside home in Amesbury, Tim was happiest birding and dreaming alongside his soulmate Nicole (King) Demeritt. Tim is survived by his parents of Newburyport; his brother, sister-in-law, and much adored niece of Hampton Falls; and his girlfriend of North Hampton whose loving family he willingly inherited when the two decided to share their lives. Countless aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends will miss Tim dearly. Family and friends may call on Saturday April 1, 2023 from Noon to 3:00 P.M. at the Twomey, LeBlanc, & Conte Funeral Home 193 High St. Newburyport, MA 01950. In lieu of flowers, please consider donating in Tim's memory to the Massachusetts Audubon Society at For directions or to offer online condolences please visit

Jeff was a member of the Brown University Class of 1966, where he majored in European history, and minored in French and Russian, subjects which remained lifelong interests.

Jeff enjoyed traveling to Canada with his son, to New York City with his daughter, and throughout New England with the whole family, as well as annually to West Virginia where Nancy's roots lay. Jeff had a notable passion for finding and collecting unique and vintage items, including international flags (displayed on the backyard flagpole and often causing passersby to stop and talk), vintage diner and restaurant dishware and silverware (shared with the Newburyport community at exhibitions at the library and senior center), and many, many LP records (played for family and friends on Jeff's turntables). Jeff is lovingly remembered by his wife Nancy Alcorn of Newburyport, son Brian (Sarah) of Washington D.C., daughter Kristin Masoud (Tarek) of Belmont, MA, grandsons Hamza and Ali Masoud, granddaughter Annaruth Alcorn, and brother Bruce Alcorn (Julieann) of Wells, ME.

Brentwood - A Tribute to our Dad Our dad's life began from very humble beginnings early in the last century. He was the youngest of six children born to Lewis H. and Olive Harraden Dodge on November 8, 1927. His mother Olive, at age 31 and sister Dorothy, at age 5, both succumbed to the influenza epidemic of 1929. Our dad and his 4 surviving siblings were placed in an orphanage in Franklin New Hampshire shortly thereafter. He was placed with a loving foster mom until her passing when he was age 5. He was returned to the orphanage where he lived until the age of 17 when he joined the United States Navy. Our dad proudly served his country for 12 years traveling by Naval ship to Africa, Italy, and other ports of call around the world. In 1959, at the age of 32, our Dad met our mother, Jeannine Hudon, while both working in a plastics factory near Pattons Hollow in Amesbury, MA. Our Dad's greatest ambition in life was to have a family of his own. On November 20, 1959, our dad married our mother and on that day he became a loving father to Robert Harlan and Susan Diane Estabrook. In 1960 Lisa Ann was born followed by Lewis Howard, III (Chip) in 1962 and Christopher Hudon in 1965. Our dad spent the next 25 years raising his large family in Amesbury, MA and working at the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard in Kittery Maine in the transportation and delivery departments. After his retirement our parents moved to a retirement community in Seabrook, NH where they made their home until relocating to Brentwood, NH in 2018. Our dad loved to read. Growing up and until his passing at age 95 our Dad read 1-2 books per week. He loved his trips to the Seabrook Library and monthly trips to Barnes & Noble where he would circle the bargain tables for, well, seemed like hours. And he always went home with a smile and bags full of books knowing his next great adventure into a nonfiction novel awaited him .. this was his joy. He also loved cats .. especially his cat Teddy who was probably the meanest cat I ever knew ... just had to put it out there. But he knew no greater joy than his family. He is lovingly survived by his wife of 63 years Jeannine Dodge of Brentwood NH and his children. He was a loving father, father-in-law, grandfather and great-grandfather to his son Robert Estabrook and his wife Jacqueline of New Castle NH, and their children Melodie Dylla and her husband Scott, and their son Stellan; Bobbi Estabrook and her wife Lauriane Bourgeon; Bradley Estabrook and his wife Stephanie, and their children Evie, Aiden, Shealyn and Elise; his daughter Susan Stewart and her husband Jeffrey of South Carolina, and their children Jessica Oskorep and her husband Ed and their children Haley and Emily; Jodi Stewart and her daughter Allison; Andi Gaudreau and her husband Josh; and Jeffrey Jr.; his daughter Lisa Bowman and her husband Kenneth of Merrimac, MA, and their children Derek Bowman and his wife Tara and their children Taylor Bennett, Trinity, Ryan and Bella; Kaytee Bowman and her husband Brett Murray, and their children Nikki and Freya; and Rebecca Brown and her husband Dylan, and their children Ryker and Leila; his son Chip Dodge and his wife Michelle of Kingston, NH, and their children Beth York and her husband Doug, and their children Corinne and Peri; Luke Dodge and his wife Erika and their children Hadley and Lowen; and Tylor Dodge and his wife Shoshana and their child William; his son Christopher Dodge and his wife Lisa of Amesbury, MA; and Gary Dodge and his wife Cherie of Amesbury along with their children Stephanie, Angela, Matthew, Gary, and Kerrie-Ann.

Newbury - Sophia Renee Jackman, loving daughter to Colby Jackman and Jonathan Carrion, born May 9, 2013, went to heaven March 14, 2023. It was very calm and peaceful, her mother and father held her in their arms until she took her last breath. The storm broke and the sun shined down on her, I believe her uncle Jed Jackman was there to receive her. Sophia was born with a rare form of dwarfism called Rhizomelic Chondrodysplasia Punctata. Ever since Sophie was born we've wanted to celebrate every moment here with her on earth. I am so thankful for all the time we were blessed with. She touched every person who interacted with her. She shined bright in every crowd. She made me who I am today and I couldn't be more thankful to be her mother. She got to spend her last days with her mother and her father, making memories with her sisters Remy, Lily, and Sophia. She also leaves behind her auntie Janelle and Uncle Sam Spector as well as her grandparents Eva and Jack Jackman. She loved her dogs Blanco, Loca, and especially her dog Chico who spent nights in the hospital by her side until the end. She loved going to school at the Professional Center for Child Development with her team of nurses and teachers who gave her the best care everyday. The amount of people she's had step up over the years and help raise her and give her the best care possible is unimaginable. Friends, family, and even strangers. Services will be held at the First Parish Church, 20 High Road, Newbury, MA, on April 1, 2023, at 3 P.M. Please wear pink or yellow in her memory. Donations can be made directly to family, or to Elliott, Woodworth & Rogers Family Funeral Home, 35 Green Street, Newburyport, MA 01950.

Exeter - Samuel L. Baily died peacefully on March 3, 2023 with his family at his side. He was 86-years-old. Sam was raised in Reading, PA and in Philadelphia, PA where he attended Germantown Friends School. He earned a BA in History at Harvard University and a PhD in Latin American History at the University of Pennsylvania. Professionally, Sam was a scholar, teacher and mentor. He taught Latin American and Comparative Migration History to undergraduates and graduate students at Rutgers University in New Brunswick, NJ for thirty-eight years. Sam was a popular teacher who won teaching awards both at the undergraduate and graduate levels. He directed the PhD work and oversaw the master's degrees of nearly three dozen students. He was very proud of their professional success. Sam was the author and/or editor of seven books and dozens of scholarly articles. His best-known works are his prize-winning comparative study, Immigrants in the Lands of Promise: Italians in Buenos Aires and New York City, 1870-1914, and his co-edited collection of letters, One Family, Two Worlds: An Italian Family's Correspondence across the Atlantic, 1901-1922. Sam's Quaker faith was a foundational part of his life. He was a member of the Coulter Street Meeting in Germantown, PA from birth, as was his father and grandfather. As a conscientious objector to military service he undertook alternative service working in a small Mexican village for two years, which profoundly affected his life and influenced his choice of profession as a Latin American historian. He was an active member of Amesbury Friends Meeting, where he served as Clerk and he and his wife Joan were among those who founded the Amesbury Friends Peace Center. Sam had many interests outside of his work. He was very active in the development of several lay organizations devoted to finding a cure for Huntington's Disease (HD), a neurological disease of which his mother died. Music brought him great joy. He began singing in choirs at a young age and continued throughout his life. Sam learned to play guitar when he lived in Mexico and would entertain children in the family with songs to sing and dance to. Sam loved to travel. He and his wife Joan spent many years living abroad in Mexico, Spain, Italy, and England and also for his research work in São Paulo, Buenos Aires, Toronto, and Rome. After raising their family in Piscataway, NJ, Sam and Joan retired in 2004 to Newburyport, MA, then RiverWoods, a retirement community in Exeter, NH. Everywhere he lived, Sam made friends and maintained these friendships throughout his life. Most important to Sam were his family including his beloved wife and partner in life of 61 years, Joan Baily (deceased), his daughter Jennifer Baily (Michael Zona), daughter, Sarah Baily (Thomas Galligan), son, Benjamin Baily (Erin Shaw), sister, Babs Butts (deceased), brother, Nick Baily, and his eight grandchildren, who brought him great joy, Josie, Luke, Tessa, Will, Eva, Jackson, Violet, and James. Burial will be private in the Quaker Cemetery within the Union Cemetery, Amesbury, MA. At a later date, a Memorial Service will be held at the Amesbury Friends (Quaker) Meeting, Amesbury, MA.

Merrimac - With sadness, love and profound gratitude, the family of Charlotte Eileen Stepanian, announces her passing on March 11, 2023, at High Point House in Haverhill, MA after a brief illness. She now rests comfortably in the arms of the Lord. She was 90 years old. Born Charlotte Eileen Black in Amesbury, MA, she was the daughter of the late James and Delma Black of Merrimac, MA. She was graduated from Merrimac High School in 1950 and went on to attend Mount Auburn School of Nursing and graduated with a degree as a Registered Nurse. This was only the beginning of a decade's long love of further education in nursing and service in the health care field. Ever thirsting for knowledge, she earned her degree in health care administration and was 64 years old when she received her bachelor's degree in nursing. Never one to back down from a challenge, she then completed her master's degree in nursing at the age of 70. In 2005, she was hired by St. Joseph's College to teach online classes in public health which further sparked her interest to begin pursuing her doctorate. She spent countless hours working toward her degree all the while performing her job as the public health nurse for the town of Merrimac as well as teaching at Endicott College. Eileen was initially hired as the town nurse in 1971 while she was also employed at Lawrence General Hospital. Over the course of her career she visited patients recently released from the hospital to make sure their recovery was complete, gave countless flu shots (and even did rabies clinics!) as she was always looking for ways to serve her community. As the field of public health nursing changed she adapted, educated herself to provide the best care for her community. She organized and ran flu clinics, taught about communicable diseases, instituted a Used Sharps Collection Program before it was mandated to ensure safety for the public and the trash handlers, she held blood pressure clinics all while teaching and running community wellness programs. She initiated public health prevention initiatives, public health emergency preparedness support and in 1998, she joined other public health nurses in forming a statewide organization, The Mass. Association of Public Health Nurses. She also began writing a monthly column written for the Senior Center newsletter called, "Thought You'd Like to Know" in order to help educate her peers about health and nutrition. Undaunted and unafraid, during the Covid Pandemic, she worked tirelessly with other town officials to safeguard and protect the citizens of Merrimac. Throughout the years, Eileen worked at Lawrence General Hospital, Amesbury Hospital, and Holy Family Hospital while raising four boys and three girls, never slowing down. The word vacation didn't really have a place in her vocabulary but she did thoroughly enjoy her trip to the United Kingdom and reconnecting with her family in Scotland. Her Scottish heritage was very important to her. Eileen received many awards and citations but one of the highlights of her career was traveling to San Francisco where she was honored as the recipient of the prestigious Lillian Wald Service Award from the public health nursing section of the American Public Health Association on Oct. 30, 2012, one day after her 80th birthday. This distinction, granted to a nurse for exemplary public health nursing practices, is a prestigious national award that she was proud to receive and share with several of her children that made the journey with her. Upon her return, the town held a luncheon celebrating her award and she was given a certificate by the Board of Selectmen proclaiming Nov. 7 "Charlotte Eileen Stepanian Day" in Merrimac. Her town recognized her invaluable service once again by making her the Grand Marshal of the 2021 Santa parade. These were honors she cherished. In June of 2022 Eileen retired at the age of 89 successfully completing 52 years of public service to her beloved town of Merrimac and the state of Massachusetts. Over the years there have been many articles written about Eileen and her accomplishments. Words used to describe her are; incredible, determined, intelligent, driven, teacher, mentor, advocate, always seeking knowledge, service, duty, adaptable, unstoppable, tireless, remarkable, loving, devoted, loyal, honest, humble, a joy to work with always going above and beyond. Eileen was a consummate professional and she wore many hats but to us she will always be "Ma." She will be remembered for her quick-witted humor, famous one-liners, her open arms and giving spirit and being there whenever we needed her. Sunday dinners, fantastic meals, laughter, faith, love and comfort just by being in her presence. She will be missed beyond words "...but as God calls us one by one, the chain will link again." She is survived by her seven children whom she loved with all of her heart; James Stepanian (Ferne), Robert Stepanian (Lori), Steven Stepanian (Stephanie), Patti Jaffarian, Scott Stepanian (Coralie), Kimberly French (Patrick), and Bonnie Stepanian; several beloved grandchildren; Annie Stepanian, Chrissy Stepanian, Megan Belair, Michele Jaffarian, Nicholas Carrier (Brittany), Joshua Gleason, Corey French (James), Benjamin French, Meagan French, and eight great-grandchildren; Isaiah Cassell, Code Smart, JJ Yokley, Greenley Stepanian, Jackson Carrier, Jaylah Gleason, Alaric and Aurora Riley. Eileen was predeceased by her daughter-in-law, Christine Stepanian and her son-in-law Paul Jaffarian. Calling hours will be Friday, March 17th from 4 to 7 p.m. at Paul C. Rogers Family Funeral Home, 36 W. Main Street, Merrimac, MA. A celebration of Eileen's life will be held Saturday, March 18 at 11:00 a.m. at the Pilgrim Congregational Church, 27 Church Street, Merrimac, MA. Interment will be held at a later date. To honor Eileen, donations may be made in her name to the Merrimac Council on Aging Gift Account, 100 E. Main Street, Merrimac, MA 01860 or to the local charity of one's choice.

US Special Committee on Aging

The United States Senate's Special Committee on Aging, currently chaired by Senator Bob Casey (D-PA), 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.
