Tribute & Message From The Family

Lois Ann (Goldsbury) Macy, a longtime Concord resident, passed away peacefully on September 9, 2020 in Concord. She was 93-years old. Lois was the wife of the late Thomas White Macy, Jr., with whom she shared a 52-year marriage.

Born in Lynn, MA in 1927 to John and Inez (Jameson) Goldsbury, Lois was an only child who grew up in Lynn and Lynnfield, MA. Lois was a graduate of Wakefield High School, earned a B.A. in Political Science at Mount Holyoke College, did graduate work at the University of Vermont, and worked at GE Riverworks in Lynn, MA.

Lois was active in her community throughout her life. She was a Girl Scout as a young girl, a camp counselor, and later Assistant Scoutmaster. At the Trinitarian Congregational Church in Concord she served on the diaconate and multiple committees. Lois spent many years at the TriCon Gift Shop in Concord's historic Wright's Tavern, which was run by the women of the church with proceeds donated to various charities. As a member of the Concord Women's Club, revenues from her hand knitted sweaters, hats, and mittens helped fund scholarships for local high schoolers.

Lois was proud of her New England heritage and loved spending time in rural Warwick, MA, home of her ancestors. There she enjoyed outdoor activities, gatherings with family and friends, and attending the Congregational church.

Lois was an avid swimmer, doing laps with friends well into her 80's. Like her father, she loved to garden, as well as grow and preserve fruits and vegetables. Lois was a dedicated reader of history and biography, was active in several hereditary organizations, and was devoted to assisting others with genealogical research.

Lois is survived by her daughter Virginia, of Concord, and her son Thomas, of Acton, as well as her grandchildren Kristin and Thomas, of Acton.

It is with great love that we remember our mother and grandmother.

Due to pandemic restrictions a private service will be held in Warwick, MA.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be sent to Trinitarian Congregational Church, 54 Walden St, Concord, MA 01742, Trinitarian Congregational Church of Warwick, 32 Athol Rd, Warwick, MA 01378, or the Alzheimer's Foundation of America in NY.

Condolence & Memory Journal

I am so sorry to hear of the loss of Lois. I had spoken with her as we were moving to CT and had hoped to come up and meet some of my extended family. We had some very nice conversations and I had truly hoped to meet her and then Covid struck. My mother, Maeva Hamilton Hipps, and Lois continued to be in correspondence until a little before my mom's death. It was nice that the two cousins remained close over the years. May her memory be for a blessing and may your family know no more sorrow.

I'm so very sorry to hear about your mothers passing. I knew her from being in the group of knit wits from church, which she would donate her knitting projects. She was always true friend and always had time to talk. She will be surely missed!

My condolences to Lois's family. She was a TriCon friend and very productive fellow member of the Knitwits, the church knitting group. With my sympathy and memories, Barbara Feehrer
