<![CDATA[The Eagle-Tribune: Obituaries]]> (11)

Amesbury - Duncan Lowell Noyes, lifetime Amesbury resident and all around good guy, died surrounded by loved ones at the family homestead on July 2, 2024, at the age of 71.A 1970 graduate of AHS, Duncan always enjoyed the competition and camaraderie of sports and games. From playing first base on an undefeated Little League team to the many bowling leagues he joined in Florida, from learning cribbage and bridge in elementary school to marathon games of Mexican Train Dominoes and a national ranking as backgammon player, he got tremendous satisfaction from that intersection of competition and sociability.Duncan grew up along the Merrimack River, making it and the woods behind the house his playground. It was the realization of a dream, when, after his retirement, he was able to buy the property from his parents' estate, and spend the rest of his life living on and improving the property.After graduating cum laude from Amherst College in 1974, Duncan started his work life in banking. He very shortly got a job with Raytheon, working as a project planner in their missile systems program. During his career there he earned his MBA from Southern New Hampshire University. Wanting to spend more time with his wife, Bonnie, and wanting to travel while they both had their health, he joined her in retirement in 2007. They soon bought a condominium in Clearwater FL, and became snowbirds and started building a community of friends there.There is a saying "the first third of your life is for learning, the second third is for earning, and the last third is for returning." Duncan embodied this. He chose his charities carefully and gave generously. In retirement he served as a treasurer to numerous organizations, including St. James Episcopal Church, the Merrimack River Watershed Council, and the Salisbury Point Cemetery Association. And, he was a patriarch, giving counsel generously to his children, grandchildren, nieces and nephews.Duncan was blessed to grow up in a stable, loving family. His parents, William H. and Eleanor L., and his siblings, Bart, Debbie, and Greg were the classic nuclear family. He took the lessons he learned there to the true passion project of his life, the family he and Bonnie created. Through the highs and lows of family, he met it head on with resolve, compassion, and clear-eyed realism. He always did his best.Duncan is survived by his siblings, his wife Bonnie, three children; Paul and wife Juli, Sherri, and Amanda and husband David, nine grandchildren, two step-grandchildren, and three great-grandchildren. He was predeceased by a son, Jamie, and a great-granddaughter, Olivia.Calling hours at Paul Rogers Funeral Home in Amesbury, MA from 10 a.m.to 12 p.m. on Wednesday, July 10, 2024.

<![CDATA[The Eagle-Tribune: Obituaries]]> (33)

Naples - JoAnne P. Spencer, a long-time resident of Naples, FL, passed away peacefully with family by her side after a courageous nine-year battle with metastatic breast cancer on June 10, 2024. Despite the years of ongoing cancer treatment, she maintained her resolve, along with her warmth and smile, largely because she wanted to continue to be present in the lives of her loved ones and to enrich the life of anyone whom she met.JoAnne was born on March 23, 1947 to Rocco and Philomena D'Amato in Haverhill, MA.She graduated from Lesley College (now Lesley University) in 1969 and immediately began her career in the 1970's as an elementary school teacher in Massachusetts. The lessons she not only taught the students, but more importantly that she learned as a person during those years, she would later credit with much of her success in business and in life.Upon moving to Naples, FL with her previous husband, David Spencer, and after the birth of her only child, Eric, in 1979, she spent the first five years at home raising him. Once Eric began elementary school, JoAnne officially embarked on her real estate career as realtor at John R. Wood Realtors, where she would thrive for the next two decades. She infused her kindness and genuine interest in others into her role. So many of her clients from all over the world became close friends, and she was so proud of the level of success she achieved, but not nearly as proud as she was that she had positively impacted couples and families—as they built houses into homes and raised families.Even though JoAnne retired from working in real estate full-time in the early 2000's, she was far from done with being active and having an impact in the community. She volunteered for thousands of hours and for over a decade in the Cardiology department of the Naples Community Hospital (now Naples Comprehensive Health), where she was adored by the medical staff and patients.She was beloved by many because she was kind to everyone, remained humble, and showed genuine interest in their lives. She could make a family member feel like the most important person in the world, a friend feel like a close family member, and she could turn a complete stranger into almost an old friend in the span of minutes. And if there was a baby within a one-mile radius, you could bet that JoAnne was trying to make them smile and the mother feel special at the same time.She loved spending quality time with family and friends, long walks along the beautiful Naples beaches, and seemingly all entertainment related to the British monarchy. An avid reader, you could always find JoAnne at home no more than a few feet from her latest read (and often several at once). She always kept a calm, composed demeanor, except when the New England Patriots or Duke University's basketball team were playing important games—in which case she would nervously sit on the edge of her seat, the passion for those teams coursing through her veins, as she willed them to victory.Church attendance and aiding the church's ministries were always a priority in her life. In her first two decades in Naples, she was a devoted member of St. Paul's Episcopal Church, and in the more recent years she was actively involved at St. Mary's Episcopal Church in Bonita Springs, FL.JoAnne embodied what it means to live in the present moment each day and to lovingly put others before herself—picking up the spirits of anyone around her.She is survived by her son, Eric Spencer, of Naples, FL; her sister, Anita D'Amato, of Salisbury Beach, MA; step-daughters Kristin Cassidy (Scott) and Marcy Hesseling (Ryan) of Pensacola, FL; sister-in-law, Nancy Eberhardt (Eric) of Naples; brother-in-law, Dan Norris (Kathy) of Marietta, GA, in addition to extended family members and loved ones in both the United States and Italy.She was preceded in death by her late husband, Ted Norris of Naples, and her parents, Rocco D'Amato and Philomena D'Amato of Salisbury Beach, MA.From the all-time classic novel and one of JoAnne's personal favorites, The Prophet, by Kahlil Gibran:"In the sweetness of friendship let there be laughter, and sharing of pleasures. For in the dew of little things the heart finds its morning and is refreshed."A celebration of JoAnne's life is being planned in Naples, FL with a likely date in early September—with more details to follow. There will also be a private family ceremony in Massachusetts later this summer.In lieu of flowers, please see the donation information below for a favorite organization of JoAnne's, St. Jude Children's Research Hospital - https://www.stjude.org.

<![CDATA[The Eagle-Tribune: Obituaries]]> (36)

Andover - Mrs. Antoinette E. (DeVellis) Lord, a longtime resident of Andover, Massachusetts, beloved wife of Robert H. Lord and mother of Robert M. Lord and his wife Laura, and loving sister of Thomas DeVellis and his wife Patricia, passed away on Monday, June 17, 2024. She was 78 years old.Born in Somerville, Massachusetts on May 23, 1946, she was the daughter of the late Frank and Mary (Balzano) DeVellis. Annette was the first member of her family to go to college, graduating from Boston State College and later earning her master's degree in education from Lesley College.Her dedication to education was a lifelong commitment, teaching for more than two decades at Bancroft Elementary School in Andover and prior to that the Morse School in Cambridge. Known for her firm yet compassionate approach, Annette touched the lives of countless students throughout her career and left a lasting impact on all who learned from her.Along with teaching her students, raising her son Bobby, and making sure that there was never a single piece of dirty laundry in the hamper or so much as a lone fingerprint on the refrigerator, principal among Annette's many joys was traveling with her family. In 1988, she brought her mother to Naples, Italy, which marked the first time Mary had been back to her native country since emigrating to the United States in 1933 as a 12-year-old.In the later years of her life, Annette, her husband, son, daughter-in-law, brother, and sister-in-law spent a substantial amount of time traveling in Europe, the United States, and Mexico, visiting the places she had always dreamed of as a child.On these trips, she never hesitated to demand that the hotel be moved a bit to the left or the right, depending on conditions at the time. She holds an unofficial record for successful replacement requests from hotel and property management, including four refrigerators, dozens of lamps, pillows, linens, and dishes, and countless hair dryers.She was a deeply loving mother to her son, and this devotion extended to Laura, whom she regarded as her own daughter. Annette was fond of saying to Bobby and Laura that "what's mine is mine, what's yours is yours, and what's Daddy's is ours."Her dedication to her son was such that she successfully completed overdubbing handclaps on a track for one of Bobby's musical groups, hitting beats 2 and 4 effortlessly throughout the piece. Her husband, unable to do so, was summarily fired from the recording session.Besides her beloved husband, son, daughter-in-law, brother, and sister-in-law, she is survived by her sister Cecelia Hender and nephew Jeffrey Hender, his wife Christine, and her great-niece Adeline. She was predeceased by her sister Mary Grace Firth, brother-in-law George Firth, brother-in-law Stephen Hender, mother-in-law Mary F. Lord, and father-in-law Edward C. Lord.She was also predeceased by her former aide-de-camp, Mr. Giovanni of Sorrento, Italy, a manager at the Parco dei Principi hotel whose demise was undoubtedly hastened by Annette's frequent visits.Annette will be lovingly remembered as a dedicated wife, mother, teacher, and friend.Calling hours will be held on Sunday, June 23, 2024, in the Burke-Magliozzi Funeral Home, 390 North Main Street, Andover from 12:00 P.M. to 3:00 P.M.

They were married in 1968 and raised three children, Jaimie, Heather, and Lonnae.Jim began playing the saxophone professionally in 1958, and although he consideredhimself a self-taught player, he studied briefly with Lee Konitz and Jackie McLean. Heperformed with Lou Donaldson, Jimmy Garrison, 'Papa' Joe Jones, Phil Woods, Buddy Tate, Red Holloway, Teddy Kotick, and Clark Terry. During the '70s and '80s, Jim was prominent on the Boston jazz scene as a member of the Bunny Smith Quartet, playingall the major and not-so-major Boston jazz clubs and the Boston Globe Jazz Festival. In the 80's Jim toured the US and Canada with blues legends Katie Webster and Mighty Sam McLaine, and can be heard on several CDs from such labels as Brownstone, GM, and Sea Breeze. Jim performed at jazz clubs, concerts, and festivals around the world, including England, France, Portugal, Vancouver, and Japan.Until recently, he divided his time playing in three big bands, two nonets, a sextet, and various smaller jazz ensembles in the New England area.When he wasn't playing the sax, he was oftenfound at home doing yardwork in one of his beautiful gardens. Jim and his wife, Elizabeth were avid gardeners, and at one point both were NH master gardeners.He loved animals and spent decades adopting retired racing greyhounds until he ended up with one tiny Dachshund, Teddy, who is still waiting for his return. Jim enjoyed many forms of art and returned to painting in various styles repeatedly during his life. Jim could be a quiet man in large groups, but amongst friends and family was often quite the ham. Nothing made him happier than making his children laugh and the daily 5 p.m. family dinner was often a loud and rowdy affair with terrible jokes and lots of hilarity. He was a true friend and left behind many close relationships, some going back almost 70 years. Jim was a beautiful man and artist and will be missed in many ways. Jim was preceded in death by his wife Elizabeth and is survived by his daughters Lonnae and Heather Turrell and husband Tyrone, his son James and wife Mary, and his granddaughter, Freyja.The eldest of three siblings, Jim is survived by his siblings, Marilyn Proctor and Rosalie Mallia, and his brothers-in-law, Jeffrey Proctor and Anthony Mallia, as well as many nieces and nephews.Calling hours are Sunday, June 30th from 1 to 3 p.m., at Douglas and Johnson Funeral Home, 214 Main St., Salem, NH. There will be a gathering at Jim's house in Danville, NH after. All are invited to come eat, drink, and enjoy music.
