She graduated from Brockton High School in 1960 and from the Chandler School for Women in 1962.

Over the years, she served as secretary to directors, vice presidents, and deans in BUs School of Education, Sargent College, and Metropolitan College, among others. She graduated from BU in 1974 with a degree in long-range planning. In 1969, she married Timothy W. Horan, and they decided to move to Marshfield because of Jeannes fond memories of summer day trips to the beach, Johnsons A&W Drive-In, the roller-skating rink, and more. Following the births of their three children, Jeanne turned her attention to the community of Marshfield, and joined the Newcomers Club, eventually becoming its vice president. In 1979, she was elected to the Town of Marshfields Planning Board and served in this capacity for 10 years. In 1980, the North River Arts Society (NRAS) in Marshfield Hills invited her to join their board of directors, as secretary, then treasurer, and ultimately president of the organization for eight years. Among her countless contributions to NRAS, Jeanne co-chaired the organizations largest event, the annual Festival of the Arts, for 25 years. In 1982, she was appointed to the Ventress Memorial Library Board of Trustees, and joined both the Library Building Committee and the Library Fundraising Committee. Her commitment to this project supported the construction of a brand-new library for the citizens of Marshfield. She even participated in the Book Brigade effort to transport library books, by foot, from the old building to the new. Throughout the 80s, Jeanne became actively involved in town politics, managing the campaigns of numerous Selectmen candidates. Throughout the 1980s and 90s, she took on a mentorship role as a Marshfield troop leader for Girl Scouts of America. She also volunteered for Marshfield Friends of Music, the Historic Winslow House, and the towns Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Committee, among many others. In recognition of her efforts, the Marshfield Chamber of Commerce honored Jeanne as the 1989 Marshfield Citizen of the Year. She was the first woman to receive this award. The Ventress Library has planned to rename its art gallery space in her honor. In addition to all of these extraordinary accomplishments, Jeanne is known by her family, friends, colleagues, and the community as a woman who could be counted on to offer leadership and mentorship; ideas and wisdom; emotional support and friendship; and generosity of time, energy, and spirit. She will be remembered as a tireless, dedicated volunteer and advocate; a loving and proud wife, mother, aunt, and grandmother; an avid fan of the Boston Red Sox, New England Patriots, Boston Bruins, and Boston Celtics; a prolific reader and book-sharer; a caring friend and trusted confidante; an accomplished knitter; and an Aruba enthusiast.

Margarette (Keeley) Larkin of Marshfield, passed away April 15, 2014. She was the beloved wife of sixty-three years of the late Philip Larkin, former National Director of Maintenance, Howard Johnson's Co.; devoted mother to Dr. Kevin Larkin, Robert Larkin, Margarette Larkin, Michael Larkin, his wife Bonnie, the late Joseph Larkin and his wife Catherine; loving grandmother of Arianne and Andrew Larkin; dear sister of the late Stanley Keeley and his wife Lynne; loving aunt of her Keeley girls, Sharon, Diane, Moira and Tara; daughter of the late Joseph and Lillian Keeley. She was born, raised and educated in New York City. Margarette, true daughter of the American Revolution, she was a proud humble patriot who served her country as an Air Transport coordinator during World War II at Idlewild Field in NYC. She, as her many preceding generations and husband, served this nation with honor, distinction and great personal sacrifice. This she preferred to keep to herself, displaying her "Betsy Ross" flag as the only hint. Margarette, a Queens College graduate in the mid-forties, believed deeply in the value of education. Reading, history and genealogy were among her passions. To her, what you did mattered, possessions were of less concern. Margarette was a volunteer reading teacher in Marshfield. She was employed at National Amusements/ Sumner Redstone Corp., retiring in 1996. Margarette, Phil and family traveled widely, living in Istanbul, Turkey for a time with the intention of exposing their children to different cultures, people and languages. They were before their time, of their time and after their time, in the path they took may illuminate life just a bit for those that follow. They loved without condition and their final wish was that their likes will be seen again. In the end it is the love you create, little else matters. Their children feel they can never repay the love and lives they have given.
