Jean F. (Anderson) Lord

November 29, 1926 — January 4, 2024



Born in Concord, MA in a blizzard and transported to Emerson Hospital on a dray pulled by horses, Jean Lord was a longtime resident first of Concord and then Bedford, MA and Bolton, MA. She was the daughter of Irene (Pedersen) Anderson and Carl F.N. Anderson, both of Concord. Married to Charles Lord (1925-2011) she was the mother of four children: Linda K Mansfield (of Stow), W. Chuck Lord (of Bolton), Stephen Lord (of Bolton) and Jonathan D. Lord (of Hardeeville, SC). Grandmother of ten children and eleven great grandchildren, she also leaves a sister, Pauline Oliver (of Concord) and two other sisters, now deceased, Ruth Anderson and Ingrid Anderson

Graduated from Concord High School class of 1944, she remained active with her fellow alumni until recently. A long-time employee of Jordan Marsh Company, where she rose from temporary salesperson to running the executive office, she also remained active as an avid bowler up until her 90th year. In addition, she worked for the family farm, Carver Hill orchards, as apple picker and started the Carver Hill Orchard Farm stand.

She was a model 1950’s mother. Den Mother, friend to many, with a large social circle from Voter Volunteer - ten years in Bolton - to Meals on Wheels, for which she drove for twenty-one years and was honored for it.  Both Jean and Charles live to travel - a trip to Hawaii, yearly trips to Myrtle Beach, Germany to visit Jonathan while stationed there, three Trans Canada first class train trips to Banff, almost every state in the country and a very special trip to Alaska by plane, boat and train.

She was a devoted member of Hawthorne Chapter of Order of the Eastern Star and served in many offices, including Matron.

If anyone chooses to honor her memory with a charitable contribution, her two favorites are Northeast Animal Shelter in Salem, MA and the Red Cross where she worked numerous blood drives over many years.

Family and friends will gather to honor and remember Jean on Saturday, January 13, 2024, from 2:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m. at the Fowler-Kennedy Funeral Home, 42 Concord Street, Maynard. Her Memorial Service will be celebrated on Tuesday, January 16, 2024, at 10:30 a.m. at Trinity Church 14 Wattaquadock Hill Road, Bolton.
