William F. MacKenzie
Born: April 01, 1944
Died:
 December 27, 2009

HAMILTON - William (Bill) Forrester MacKenzie always had a new joke to tell and a camera in his hand. In the past few years, he regularly shared these loves at Henderson’s Coffee Shop and at the dinner table. Mr. MacKenzie, a lifelong resident of S.Hamilton, MA, died unexpectedly on Sunday, December 27, 2009 at his house. He was 65 years old. He leaves behind his wife of 42 years Maridia MacKenzie, and daughters, Amy MacKenzie of Portland, OR and Cindy Black and grandchildren Austin and Kailyn Black of Ipswich, MA.

Hamilton, MA to William and Eleanor MacKenzie (deceased), he had two sisters, Susan Lewis of Inverness, FL, and Jane Jenkins of Gloucester, MA and one brother, David  MacKenzie (deceased). He is also survived by his mother-in-law, Lois Jernigan with whom he had a very close relationship. As a cherished uncle of thirteen nieces and nephews and their children, he was highly involved in their lives. The door was always open for a warm meal or a soft bed. Prior to retiring, he was the Chief of Police of a local town for about 11 years. Before becoming chief, he was a police officer for 24 years. He is remembered by many who attended Hamilton-Wenham Regional Middle and High School as the DARE officer. In addition, he served as President of the Essex County Chiefs of Police Association; member of the MA Chiefs of Police Association and Former President of the Hamilton-Wenham Rotary Club. He served in the United States Marine Corp for 4 years which included a tour of duty in Vietnam. He was honorably discharged in 1967. Mr. MacKenzie was a graduate of High Mowing School in Wilton, NH. He received a Bachelors’ degree from Salem State, Salem, MA and Masters of Criminal Justice from Anna Maria College, Paxton, MA. All his life, he had an unquenchable thirst for knowledge. He was an avid reader of classical literature, an expert on the MacKenzie family tree and student of American history. He gave retirement a good name. He became a freelance travel photographer and journalist who worked for seven travel companies in Latin America. There are several published books of his travel photography. At least twice a month, he won “photo of the day” for the submissions of his photographs to the daily contest on www.bestfoto.com. He has been interviewed and substantially quoted for National Geographic’s Traveler Magazine. Plenty Magazine published his pictures and interviewed him for an article about Nicaragua. The Latincoming Alliance website with his pictures won the travel category award at the ILTM Luxury Tourism Fair in Cannes, France.

TEAL, Jim Died at the age of 67 at Salem Hospital on August 26, 2009. Jim was the eldest sibling in a family of seven, born in Lynn, MA, on June 17, 1942. He was a current resident of Peabody, MA. Jim was married to Diane Marie (Comeau) Teal, formerly of Lynn - she predeceased Jim 15 years ago this summer. Together they had two children, James and Michele.

Jim was a dedicated employee of the General Dynamic Shipyard in Quincy for many years. He later went on to become a Master Craftsman Machinist at GTE Laboratories of Waltham and retired from that position. He and his family lived in Lynn, Rockland and Burlington predominantly in their life. Jim served during the Vietnam era and in 1960-1962 was called to serve duty on the CVA-64 USS Constellation - on it's first world cruise that crossed the equator. Jim, his father Lincoln, and brothers Robert and Richard were present for the christening of the ship in 1960.

Jim enjoyed many years of camping with his family and enjoyed drives to Marblehead Neck. He had an insatiable passion for cutting edge knowledge that kept him well ahead of his time when it came to the latest and greatest technology. One especially strong trait of Jim was that when he had a personal opinion on any given topic, he was never afraid to express it.

Jim leaves behind his son James M. (Jim), his son's wife Ginger, and his grandson Zachary of West Newbury, his Daughter Michele of Burlington, and his grandchildren Melissa and Shawn, and his 9 month old great grandson Logan. Jim also leaves behind his Father, Lincoln Lee Teal (age 92). Jims' Mother Shirley (Anderson) Teal pre-deceased him.

Attorney Marguerite H. (Mosher) Dolan, age 89, died at the Bertram House in Swampscott early Wednesday morning, February 25th, following a long illness. 

One of five children, she was born and raised in Greenfield, MA, the daughter of the late Fred A. and Helen V. (Mills) Mosher. Her family moved to New York City when she was a teenager where she graduated from Julia Richmond High School and attended Columbia University, studying journalism.  Mrs. Dolan returned to Greenfield and became a reporter for the Greenfield Recorder-Gazette.

She married the late Robert P. Dolan, Jr. in June of 1946. For many years she was a mother and homemaker and raised their five children.  Mrs. Dolan pursued her interest in journalism, writing novels, plays and magazine articles.  Later, she worked as a law librarian for the Franklin County Law Library for over 10 years where she became interested in and made the decision to pursue a law career.  During this time she clerked for Attorney Sebastian Ruggeri and, on her own, studied for the Bar.  She is believed to be the last person in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts to be admitted to the practice of law without attending law school under the old practice of “reading for the bar.”

After passing the bar and commencing her law practice in 1971 at age 51, she worked with Attorney Ruggeri until establishing her own firm in Turners Falls, later becoming partners for a time with Thomas Simons, Esq.  She became an attorney at a time when women lawyers were a rarity, and did much to mentor and encourage other women in their pursuit of careers in the law.  She retired in 1990 at age 71.

Marguerite loved outdoor activities such as hiking, swimming, tennis and picnics.  She was an intrepid traveler who relished her many trips to exotic places.

Attorney Dolan is survived by five children; Kathryn Lien of Swampscott, Constance LaFleur, Anne Dolan-Wieting and her husband John Wieting of Durango, CO, Robert Dolan, III, and his companion Michele Webster of Brattleboro, VT and Joan Dolan of Springfield, MA; one grandchild, Erik Lien, of Boston, MA and many nieces and nephews. 

Funeral arrangements are under the direction of the Murphy Funeral Home, 85 Federal St., Salem, and services will be at the convenience of family and announced at a later date.  Those who wish may make memorial contributions to the Bertram House, 565 Humphrey St, Swampscott, MA 01907 or to All Care Hospice, Development Office, 107 Audubon Road #201, Wakefield, MA 01880.  For online guest book or additional information please call (978)744-0497 or visit www.MurphyFuneralHome.com.

She played games and went swimming with them and accompanied her son and daughter to their school activities and sporting events. Additionally, she was a very active and dedicated member of the Trinity Church in Woburn. 

Lillian was perpetually in motion, whether it was cutting the lawn or shoveling snow. She will always be remembered for her love of family, her youthful outlook, her abundance of energy and her eagerness to keep going.
