William Philip "Wiffy" Cox 91, (long-time member of the DAC) passed away peacefully Saturday, July 6, 2013, at Merrimack Valley Hospice House, Haverhill, MA. Wiffy, as he was called by family and friends, earned the nickname in his youth as a connection to American professional golfer, Wiffy Cox, who won nine times on the PGA Tour in the 1930s. 

“Wiffy” Cox was born in Lowell, MA on June 3, 1922 and was the son of the late Patrick William and Annabelle (McLaughlin) Cox. He was educated and lived in Lowell until his marriage in 1952. He was one of five children and all of his siblings predeceased him: Isabelle McKiernan Nangle, Rose Nangle, Elizabeth Morrissey, and Donald Cox, who is survived by his widow, Mary (Quinn) Cox. 

Having served in the U.S. Army, Wiffy was a proud veteran of World War II. For more than 30 years, he worked as a motor vehicle supervisor for New England Telephone Company, retiring in 1984 to pursue many years of daily golf rounds and living between homes in Boynton Beach, FL and Drakes Island, ME. In 2010, to be closer to his children, all of whom live in the Merrimack Valley, Wiffy moved back to Andover and lived at Atria Marland Place. A man of generosity, good humor and unfailing optimism, some of his best memories with family and friends were created at his yearly Memorial Day weekend birthday parties. He was a proud member of Cape Arundel Golf Club, Kennebunkport, Maine and often spoke of his accomplished golf moments, which included a hole in one in Bath, Maine and a tournament win at St. Andrews Links, Scotland. 

Wiffy was the widower of Mary Frances (Moynihan) Cox of Andover, who died in 1995 and with whom he shared 43 years of marriage.

Gladys A. Page, 83, of Lynn died peacefully Tuesday, January 29th after a lengthy illness. Born and raised in Lynn, she was the daughter of the late Mary and Robert Kerr. In 1950 she married her best friend, Robert, with whom she shared the deepest and most sincere love for over 62 years. 

Gladys was a jack-of-all-trades, working at a variety of careers over the years including GE, Raytheon, Saugus General Hospital and as secretary for Dr. William Shub. She retired from NYNEX as a Telephone Sales Representative in 1989. Gladys was a long time communicant of Our Lady of the Assumption Church in Lynnfield where she also volunteered, teaching CCD to first communion classes for many years. She was a member of the Franco American AMVETS Women's auxiliary for many years donating her time and support for various charitable causes. 

A genuine and likable woman, Gladys made friends everywhere, with people and animals alike. She had an enchanting quality, which was apparent to anyone who had the pleasure to be in her company. For those who knew her well, she not only had an appetite for life, but for baking as well. When she wasn't in the kitchen trying new recipes or outside in the sun gardening, she could be found crafting or reading something from her stack of books. Her deep love of music came from her upbringing, and that passion stayed with her through the years. Later in life she could often be heard singing, humming or whistling a familiar tune. 

Gladys gave selflessly of herself, her time and her love. The memory of her warmth, charm and love of life cannot be dimmed, and we will keep her alive and smiling in our hearts. 

She will be dearly missed, and is survived by her devoted husband Robert Page and her children, Joan Dubis of Lynn and Robert Page Jr. and his wife Patricia of Danvers; as well as her grandchildren, Brian, Jennifer and Kristen Dubis, Kimberly Schneider and Kelly Pappagianopoulos; she is also survived by her sisters Margaret Melanson and Audrey Dancewicz, brother Donald Kerr, as well as many nieces and nephews.
