No. Andover - Beth Ann (Bentz) Bond, 89, of North Andover, MA passed away peacefully at High Pointe Hospice House in Haverhill, MA on April 29, 2024.Beth was born in York, PA on November 24, 1934, to Alfred Charles Bentz and Dorcas May (Slothower) Bentz and grew up in the Hillcroft area of York. Beth graduated from York High School and attended the American Theatre Wing Professional School in New York City where she studied dance, voice, and acting. Her earliest jobs were modeling shoes and acting in off-broadway productions.While acting summer stock in Peterborough, NH, Beth fell in love with the theater's handsome young business manager, Nathaniel Bond. They married just six months later, so that Beth could accompany him to Germany where he was stationed in the Army.Upon their return, the couple lived in Salem, MA and then in Georgetown, MA where they raised their three children. Second only to Beth's love of children was her love of animals. Wild animals always knew where to find a good meal and Beth provided spay/neuter services for hundreds of stray cats.Beth devoted countless hours to volunteer work. As a member of the First Congregational Church of Georgetown she served on the Board of Christian Education, organized elaborate coffee hours, and taught Sunday school and vacation Bible School. Beth volunteered in the Haverhill Municipal Hospital gift shop, and as a reader to the children in the Haverhill elementary schools. After hearing terrible stories of abuse and neglect, Beth began volunteering with the Department of Social Services, helping to create and execute an abuse-prevention program for the Haverhill Schools.When the family moved to Nantucket, MA and then to Glenburn, ME, Beth worked in several retail stores but continued her volunteer work in the schools. After caring for her mother with Alzheimer's disease, Beth became a fierce advocate for Alzheimer's research, organizing the Walk for Alzheimer's in Bangor, ME for several years.Beth loved to laugh. She enjoyed riddles, jokes and comedy shows and loved making others happy with her cooking. Whether harmonizing to music as she made dinner or dancing as she did the dishes, Beth was always a joyous performer. She also had a deep spiritual side and a firm belief in life after death.In 2020, Nat and Beth moved to Nichols Village in Groveland, MA and when Beth suffered a massive stroke in 2021, she moved to Prescott House in North Andover. She died 2 ½ years later from complications related to her stroke.Beth is survived by her children Jennifer Hickman of Andover, MA, Eben Bond (Laurie) of Fremont, NH, Kendra Niehaus (Bill) of South Riding, VA; her grandchildren, Jacob and Jason Bond and Campbell and Molly Niehaus; her brother-in-law William Hullmann, and several nieces and nephews. Beth was predeceased by her husband of 66 years, her parents, her brother, Alfred C.

Danville - On Saturday, June 15th, James (Jim, Jimmy) Cameron, 82, of Danville, NH, passed away from complications after a fall. He had been ill the previous few months as well, and his family would like to thank all of his doctors and various other caregivers from Elliot Hospital, Dartmouth Hitchco*ck, and Catholic Medical in Manchester, NH, as well as Parkland Medical in Derry NH, and the EMT services in Danville, NH. Their kindness and compassion did not go unnoticed and we are grateful to them all. Jim was born in Lowell, MA, in 1941, to Kenneth and Rosalie Cameron. He was raised in Lowell, attending Lowell High School, where he first began playing the saxophone. Jim briefly spent time at Boston College and Rhode Island School of Design before earning his degree from St. Anselm's College, in Manchester, NH, where he met his wife, Elizabeth. 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.

<![CDATA[The Eagle-Tribune: Obituaries]]> (40)

Lawrence - A self described independent spirit who shunned the limelight, Bill had an adventurous soul which saw him drive cross country as a young man long before GPS' and Google Maps ever existed with only a Rand-McNally atlas and a sense of adventure. He also hitchhiked his way across the USA with his backpack on his back on a few occasions. WIlliam Daniel Geary, 65, of Lawrence, passed away Friday, June 14, 2024.Bill was born in Lawrence in 1959 to Daniel Edward Geary and Mary (Bettencourt) Geary. Bill attended Lawrence Public Schools including the Essex Street School, Bruce School, and Oliver Jr High School. Bill graduated from Lawrence High School in 1977. While attending public schools, Bill played CYO basketball for St. Augustine's in Tower Hill, Lawrence. Several years later, he returned to coach youth basketball culminating in a championship season at the Lawrence Boys and Girls Club. Bill also attended and graduated from the University of Lowell, focusing on history and secondary education.Being the oldest of seven children, Bill was the typical oldest child - independent and self driven. After graduating college, Bill drove cross country by answering an ad in a magazine and settled in Thousand Oaks, CA for a couple of years. He later enjoyed several hitchhiking trips across the USA. Prior to embracing his love for being "On the Road" following one of his early heroes from another Massachusetts mill town, Jack Kerouac, Bill was very involved in coaching youth basketball at the Lawrence Boys and GIrls club where he was once named "Boy of the Year".Bill loved history. He shared this passion with hundreds of students over the years as a history teacher at Lawrence High School for 25 years before retiring several years ago. Although known as a "strict" teacher, students throughout the years came to know and respect him as a conscientious teacher who truly cared about them and their success. He knew their struggles but recognized their potential and worked tirelessly to have them recognize it as well. After retiring from Lawrence High School, Bill worked as a cook for Carleen's Coffee Shop. He also stayed sharp employing his keen sense of humor and cutting debating skills while working as a bartender for Hayes Tavern where he leaves behind many friends.Bill was also an avid reader and one of the most intellectually honest people to walk the earth. His sense of morals, ethics and justice were well developed and he always argued for the "common man". Bill also was an avid writer, both prose and poetry, influenced by such greats as Kerouac, Ginsburg, Burroughs, and Cassady. Earlier in life, Bill enjoyed works by Bradbury, Orwell and Hesse.Bill loved music, especially the blues. He co-owned and operated an alternative music store in Newburyport in the early 1980's. He maintained an extensive collection of all genres of music in a variety of forms; including an impressive collection of the one true medium of music - vinyl. Bill enjoyed running, riding his bike, and spending time at the beach. In his younger years, he was known to be a fairly decent body surfer and never hesitated to test his skills later on as well. Bill greatly enjoyed spending time with his siblings and nieces and nephews. Bill was famous for his early arrivals and silent Irish goodbyes at family gatherings - valuing big quality over limited quantity. His yearly Christmas gift, orange chocolate balls, to everyone will be sorely missed.Bill was predeceased by his parents, Daniel and Mary. He is survived by his six siblings, Kevin and wife Stacey West of Sandown, NH; Timothy and wife Cynthia of Claremont, CA; Stephan and wife Stacey of Merrimack, NH; Ellen and husband John Farrington of Atkinson, NH, Frances (Fran) and husband Ehab Morcos of Nashua, NH; and Mary of Atkinson, NH.

She was known to arrive at any hour and under any circ*mstance to help out family and friends in need. Known as KK by those closest to her, even by her grandchildren ("I am not Grandma!"), she was the ultimate caregiver to her three children and their eventual partners, and to her five grandkids and multiple grand pups. Her family was her priority. Even-keeled with a loving hand, she knew exactly what her "peeps" needed, from staying up all night to hold a hand, to hosting carbo loads for many sports teams, to "snuggle reads" with her grandchildren. She was so proud of each of them and never hesitated to brag about their accomplishments to anyone who would listen.KK loved photography and was quite skilled in framing the perfect shot as her Christmas cards attest. Many trips required her husband Bob to sherpa additional bags of cameras and equipment so that she was prepared for any possibility. A big fan of Jimmy Buffett and an early adopter of country music, she found amusem*nt in corny lines but solace in descriptions of the simple life, especially beach life, on which she based her own. She had a natural eye for fashion and decor, and enjoyed spending time in her gardens. From daily walks around town, to bike rides on Hilton Head Island, to tearing up dance floors, KK was always on the move. She relished her quiet time with a great book, but was a welcoming host who was revered for her killer margaritas.KK touched many lives, and will be remembered and missed by so many- including early friends in Salem, NH, her Alpha Xi sorority sisters at the University of New Hampshire, her Dartmouth gang, and her Exeter community. She was a wonderful friend, who found great joy in the human connection and went out of her way to support her loved ones.KK is survived by her loving family, by her adoring husband of 43 years, Bob Kelly of Exeter, NH; her three children and their spouses, Shalagh and Brook Bacon of Nashua, NH, Ryan and Lauren Kelly of Exeter, NH, and Devin and Caroline Kelly of Barrington, NH; her sister, Joy Wasz of Simsbury, CT and brother David Kerkhoff of Northwood, NH; her five grandchildren; and many in-laws, nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, and cousins. She is pre-deceased by her father, Phillip Kerkhoff, her mother, Joan Kerkhoff, and her older sister, Susan Lynn Kerkhoff. Susie passed away of kidney failure as a child, and was KK's first best friend. As her father also passed due to complications from kidney failure, memorial donations may be made in KK's name to the American Kidney Foundation. All are welcome to join the family at a Celebration of Life service at Phillips Church at 61 Front Street, Exeter NH on Sunday, June 23, 2024 at 1:30pm, with a reception at the Exeter Inn to follow.Her can-do spirit, giggly laugh, bright eyes and crazy beach hair will live on within all of us as a reminder of what true love is. Thank you, Karen Kay, for the life and love that you gave us.
