Jean Duxbury Obituary
Jean Duxbury, 92, of Plymouth, formerly of Quincy, died peacefully in the early morning hours of March 16, 2017, after a long battle with Alzheimers disease. She was the beloved wife of the late Harry Duxbury. Born and raised in Liverpool, England it was there that she met and married Harry, a Private serving in the US Army during WWII. In 1946 after the wars end the two moved to the US, where they settled in Quincy and started their family. To support her family following her husbands untimely death in 1972, Jean took a job as a customer service rep with the former Quincy Savings Bank, retiring after 20 years. She was a longtime volunteer at the former Quincy City Hospital, the Thomas Crane Library and at the polling stations during elections. She had long been an active supporter of many civic causes and fundraisers in the city, and served as a Deacon for many years at Quincy Point Congregational Church, where she was also active in the Merrymakers Group and serving meals at 1000 Southern Artery. Jean enjoyed bowling in various leagues around the South Shore, gardening, reading and knitting but her favorite times were those spent with her children and grandchildren and travelling each summer to England to visit her family. She was the loving mother of Jennifer D. Hart-Brokmeier and her husband Paul Brokmeier of Kingston and Steven H. Duxbury and his wife Sandra of Buzzards Bay. Dear sister of Doreen Huston and Margaret Davis, both of Liverpool, England and the late Wyn Edwards. Cherished grandmother of Katelyn Hart and Steven, Christine and Catherine Duxbury. Her memorial service will be held Wednesday, March 29 at 10 a.m. in the Quincy Point Congregational Church, 444 Washington Street, Quincy. Interment to follow at Mt. Wollaston Cemetery, Quincy. In lieu of a wake, all are welcome to the collation at the church following the funeral service and burial. Assisting the family is Hamel, Wickens & Troupe, Quincy Center.
