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 - It is with great sadness that the family of Jeffrey Alcorn announces his death on March 15, 2023, from complications of Alzheimer's disease. A beloved husband, father, grandfather, uncle and friend, Jeff was born in Boston in 1945 and graduated from Melrose High School in 1962. 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. The state of Rhode Island always held a special place in his heart because it is there he met his wife of 55 years, Nancy (Brown University Class of 1968). Jeff served in the U.S. Army during the Vietnam War years and was commissioned a second lieutenant after attending Officer Candidate School at Ft. Sill, Oklahoma. Throughout his life, Jeff's having served his country continued to be a memorable point of pride for him. Following his military discharge, he worked in banking in New York City, and he and Nancy welcomed two children, Brian and Kristin. Jeff's career brought the family to Newburyport in 1979, and here they stayed. Jeff loved Newburyport. He was a member of the Continental Navy, coached youth soccer, participated in focus groups and fundraising efforts for the Firehouse Center, was a member of the Exchange Club, and was a Ward 1P poll worker over multiple election cycles. 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. He also leaves behind nephews Michael Holdsworth, Commander Jeffrey Holdsworth, U.S. Navy, and niece Mother Maria Consecrata Holdsworth (of the Servants of the Lord and the Virgin of Matará). Funeral and interment services for Jeff are private; memorial donations may be made in the name of Jeffrey Alcorn to the Alzheimer's Association of MA and Southern NH, 309 Waverley Oaks Road, Waltham, MA 02452 ( The family is grateful to the staffs at Holy Family Hospital and High Pointe House in Haverhill for their expert care, attention, and compassion.

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. Our dad was the last surviving child of Lewis and Olive Dodge. He was predeceased by his sisters Annie, Emma, Florence and Dorothy and his brother Elmer.

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 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.

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.

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.

Ipswich - Sodiri "Gunny" Kafulides, 96, husband and best friend to Deborah (Lord) Kafulides, passed away at his home on March 3, 2023, after a brief illness. He was born on September 15, 1926 in Boston, Massachusetts to Theodore S. and Katharine "Irene" (Ostopesides) Kafulides. Serving as a machine gunner in the Marines during WWII on the Islands of Tinian and Saipan in the Pacific Theater, Gunny won awards as a sharp shooter. After graduating from photography school in New York, he worked for the Kodak Corporation and the House of Hinlin. Working at the Ipswich Post Office for over twenty years, Gunny became well-known as a fun-loving, cigar-smoking mail carrier. Later, he and his wife operated the Stained Glass Connection out of their home on Farley Ave for 25 years, while also working as carpenters, and he used those skills to improve his home and those of his children. He built the famous Trojan Horse still featured at the annual Greek Picnic at the Hellenic Center on County Road. He was a voracious reader, lover of PBS, and would debate many subjects, as Greeks do, with whoever dared take him on. He enjoyed meeting up with friends at the Agawam Diner or Dunkin Donuts in Rowley. He enjoyed camping with his young family at White Lake State Park in the pop-up camper he handcrafted, towing his daughters on water skis around Ipswich Bay, and teaching his youngest the fundamentals of hitting a softball. He also loved lounging with his cigar on his well-worn beach chair on the sandbar, Steep Hill Beach, and Back Beach. He loved to dance, especially to disco, with his beloved Debbie. As members of the Rowley Country Club, he and Debbie joined a large group of golfers five days a week until just a few years ago. Gunny leaves four children: Joanne Damon and her husband Bill of Salisbury, Karen Katherine Davis and her partner Charles Hewitt of Groveland, Katherine Elaine Thibault of Rowley, and Scott Stuart Allie and his wife Elisabeth of Portland, Oregon. He also leaves former sons-in-law Skip Thibault and Philip Davis. He leaves behind several grandchildren who loved their Grampa, or Papou: Courtney Irene Thibault of Rowley, Andrea Estelle Davis of Groveland, Jordan Joseph Thibault and his wife Brigid of Ipswich, Sidiri and Sarah Allie of Portland, Oregon, May and Arya Collins of Ipswich, and his great-grandchild Toby Reynolds. He also leaves his ShihTzu, Skylo. He was pre-deceased by his beloved daughter Katherine Constance, who died in early childhood; his grandchildren Michael Aaron Michon and Bethany Damon; his former wife Theodora Kafulides; and his two brothers, Stephen and John Kafulides. He was one in a million, and, as he often speculated, may very well have been a direct descendant of Alexander the Great and Zeus himself. A graveside service with military honors will be held Friday March 10th at 11:30 A.M. in the Cowles Memorial Cemetery 29 Town Farm Road, Ipswich. Relatives and friends are respectfully invited to attend. Please omit flowers, consider making a donation in Gunny's name to: the Ipswich Humane Group Shelter 17 Fowlers Lane Ipswich, MA 01938. Arrangements are under the direction of the Morris Funeral Home of Ipswich. To send a letter of condolence to the Kafulides family please go to: .
