Joann L. 'Jody' (Burgoyne) Goldberg, age 71, of Beverly, formerly of West Springfield, passed away in the arms of her devoted husband at the Kaplan Family Hospice House on Friday, August 13, 2021. She was the beloved wife of Mark Goldberg. Raised in West Springfield, she was the dear daughter of the late Glenwood and Margaret (McBride) Burgoyne. She attended the University of Massachusetts at Amherst and Boston State College prior to eventually getting her Master of Education at Salem State University where she was in the National Honor's Society all while raising her family. She was a proud employee of Beverly Public Schools, where she loved the friends she made and the students she taught. She retired from her position as a fourth grade teacher after twenty years at Ayers Ryal Side Elementary School. She was a woman of many talents including painting, sewing, cooking and gardening. She made entertaining look easy and was always dressed to perfection. When she became a grandmother in 2011, she devoted much of her time to being a loving presence to her grandchildren, caring for them at least once a week and recently again resuming the teacher role, helping them with home learning in the pandemic. In addition to her husband Mark, with whom she shared fifty-one years of marriage, she is survived by her devoted daughter, Stephanie Goldberg Paskievich and her husband Barry Paskievich of Swampscott; her three cherished grandchildren, Sara Jean, Hannah Mae and Joseph Matthew Paskievich; two brothers, David Burgoyne and William Burgoyne both of Westfield and her five nieces. She was also the loving mother of the late Matthew Goldberg. Funeral Services will be held privately.
