The Rev. Dr. Jeanne Wynn Marechal

The Rev. Dr. Jeanne Wynn Marechal

Passed on Sunday, 13 October 2019
News from the Rev. Ms. Laura Gronberg, Pastor of Second Congregational Church, Boxford, MA:
 
I am writing to share with you some unexpected and very sad news.  The Rev. Dr. Jeanne Marechal, former pastor at Second Church from 1992 through 2007, died suddenly on Sunday, October 13.  She was 75 years young.
 
While I know that you are as shocked and dismayed as I was to receive this news, please know that she died peacefully in her home in Belize.  She had been snorkeling the day before and was packing for a trip to visit two of her children and her irresistible 7½ month old grandson the following day.  Instead of joining her children and grandson this week, Jeanne joined her beloved husband, Rick, who died in 1997, and her parents, in God's eternal home.  I trust that God welcomed her, saying, "Well done, good and faithful servant."
 
As you can imagine, Jeanne's children have so many details to manage at this time. Nevertheless, they have expressed interest in celebrating Jeanne's life here at Second Church at some point in the coming months.  Furthermore, they have shared that they might like to collect remembrances of Jeanne's life from those who knew and loved her.  We will let you know more about these ways to show your love for Jeanne, and your care for her family, as we learn more.
 
Please join me in holding Jeanne's 3 children, Kate, Drew (and his wife, Lauren) and Mark, along with Jeanne's grandson, Alexander, in your prayers.  And join me in giving thanks for Jeanne's life, and for her ministry among us.
 
In faith,
 
Laura
