JEAN GORDON ANDRY Obituary
ANDRY, Jean Gordon (Baker) Born September 30, 1926, and surrounded by her family, passed away peacefully on July 16, 2014. Born in Springfield, Massachusetts, Jean grew up in Worcester, MA and Providence, RI, graduating from Providence Central High School in 1944. After working as a bookkeeper in Rhode Island, she moved to Southern California in 1955 where she worked and enjoyed life for 17 years. She moved back to the east coast in 1972, and spent the next chapter of her life living in West Yarmouth, raising her family and was employed as a bookkeeper at Myers Furniture Corporation where she worked for 31 years. Predeceased by her father, Merrill Ellsworth Baker and mother, Ida (Dempsey) Baker, a son, Paul and brother, Dr. Donald Whitelaw Baker, she is survived by her loving daughter, Juliet Jean Mazurczak, Duxbury, MA, her husband, Michael and two grandsons, Maxwell and Cooper Mazurczak of Duxbury. She was an active member and volunteer of the South Yarmouth United Methodist Church. In her retirement years, she taught English as a second language, was an avid reader, dabbled in Bridge, and cherished spending time with her two grandsons and family. She was a passionate Celtics and Red Sox fan. She will forever be remembered for her Irish sense of humor and wit, her kindness and open arms for friends and family. Jean was never too busy for a good story or, in many cases a good debate. Her engaging personality and love of people and laughter, were evident to all up until the end. Her family will be forever grateful to the loving and caring staff of The Newfield House in Plymouth, MA led be Geoffrey Stewart and Eli Meyer where she spent her last three years.

A memorial service, celebrating Jean's life, is planned for August. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions in honor of her memory can be made to Residents of Newfield House Scholarship Fund, 19 Newfield St., Plymouth, MA.
