OBITUARY: Marilyn (Joyce) Lamson, 62

WILMINGTON, MA — Marilyn (Joyce) Lamson, 62, of Wilmington, passed away on Thursday, June 15, 2017 at Mass General Hospital, after fighting cancer off and on for several years.

Originally from Everett, MA, Marilyn was the daughter of Joseph H. and Marilyn (Munroe) Joyce. She graduated from Everett High School, Class of 1973, and attended North Shore Community College. She worked at a variety of companies in the Cambridge area until stopping to become a full-time mom to three wonderful daughters. She eventually returned to the workplace, most recently as the Executive Administrative Assistant for Adheris Health in Burlington.

She had a wide range of friends whom she loved dearly, and enjoyed skiing, travel, and book club with those friends and her husband and family. She and her family have traveled to Canada, Germany, Italy, France and last fall to Ireland, a bucket list trip for her.

Marilyn was a member of the Wilmington School Committee for a time, and had been involved with Friends of the Library.

She is survived by her parents, Joe and Marilyn, her husband, John A. Lamson, with whom she recently celebrated their 35th wedding anniversary with a trip to New York City, and her three daughters, Elizabeth and her husband Jeff Anderson and grandson Julian of Rowley, Caroline and her husband Ricky Sims of Peabody, and Lauren Lamson of Wilmington. She was also the sister to three brothers Paul, Kevin, and Joseph, all of Colorado.
