Drucker, Mary J.  
Dr. Mary J. Drucker DOVER - Dr. Mary J. Drucker, 70, of Durrell Street died suddenly at Wentworth Douglas Hospital from complications following a successful stent procedure on Wednesday January 14th, 2015, her husband and daughter were in attendance. Mary was born December 23, 1944 at Flower Hospital in New York City. Her father's death at sea when Mary was four had a profound effect on her as did her young, Brazilian mother's English that was so often misunderstood Mary would have to act as "translator". Some years later Mary, her mother and brother moved from W84th Street NYC to East Stroudsburg, Pa. which became her hometown. Mary grew up poor fuelling her determination to help marginalized and dispossessed people become empowered to overcome their challenges. Mary was determined to finish her education despite a series of setbacks. She earned a BA in Journalism at Salem State College, an MA in English as a Second Language at UMass Boston, and a Ph.D. in Reading and Literacy at Syracuse University. The path to it was long but she was proud of her doctoral degree. All through those education years she worked as well: Salem (MA) Hospital, Harvard Community Health, Maynard Plastics/Chelsea Industries, The Lynn (MA) Sunday Post, Salem State College, and Utica College. After leaving Pennsylvania Mary lived in Danvers and Salem, Massachusetts and Utica, N.Y. before moving to the Seacoast in September 2013. She was passionate about moving to the Seacoast where she could be physically closer to family than she had been for many years. She found a "home" at South Church in Portsmouth. In the little time she had remaining to her she became a Fellowship Associate, Small Group Ministry co-convener and President of the Choir. Mary was also a member of the Community Chorus of South Berwick, Maine and a Docent in Training with the Marine Docent Program of the UNH Sea Grant. Mary's infectious enthusiasm for the causes of people in need touched many hundreds of lives. Many of them have stayed in touch with her over a period of decades and are bereft to now be denied her ability to lend an empathetic ear to their troubles and take action against injustices she sees perpetrated on the defenseless. Mary is survived by her husband, Dr. R. David Drucker of Dover, her two sons Terry Lee Buck of Hanson, Mass. and Adam Henry Buck and his son (Mary's grandson) Corey Arnett of Plano, Texas, her daughter Diana P. Pamplin with her husband James and their children (Mary's grandchildren) Rachel and Christopher of Thornton, N.H., her brother Ralph James Carter of Pa., his wife Joan, their children Candy, Josh and Pamela and their children.
