OBITUARY:

Jeanne C. Hines of Woburn, well-known to patrons of the Woburn Public Library for many years, passed away at Winchester Hospital Monday evening, February 19th, following a brief illness. She was the wife of the late Edward F. Hines, Sr., who died thirty-two years ago.

Born in Woburn eighty-eight years ago, she was the daughter of the late Dr. Thomas E. and Ellen (Moore) Caulfield, Sr. She received her early education at St. Charles School and Notre Dame Academy, and went on to earn a bachelor of arts degree from Emmanuel College.

Her life revolved around her husband and children, to whom she was devoted. Following her husband Edward’s death in 1975, she went to work at the Woburn Public Library, where she started as a staff member and eventually became the Acquisitions Librarian. She was a fixture at the library for twenty years until retiring at the age of seventy-five. Her love of reading, particularly mystery novels, was a lifelong passion. Knitting and crossword puzzles were also pastimes she enjoyed.

Mrs. Hines held membership in the Burbeen Lecture Society and was a longtime member of the Choate Hospital Board of Incorporators.

In addition to her husband Edward, she was preceded in death by her son, Edward F. “Ned” Hines, Jr., who died last August, and her brother, Dr. Thomas E. Caulfield, Jr.

Surviving are three daughters, Mary Hines of Woburn, Ellen Carbeau and her husband Christopher of Burlington, and Susan Maguire and her husband Paul of Woburn, and two sons, Dr. Thomas C. Hines and his wife Jean of Arlington and Stephen Hines and his wife Mary Beth of Reading.

She was also the loving mother-in-law of Elaine Hines of Andover, sister-in-law of Elizabeth Lynch of Hudson, and beloved grandmother of Jonathan and Carolyn Hines, Rebecca Carbeau Lowney and Joseph Carbeau, Abigail and Joshua Maguire and Jessica Maguire Peretti, and Edward and Elizabeth Hines.

  1. When I first came to the library as Children’s Librarian in 1986, Jeanne was already there. I watched her knit an
    extremely taxing Irish cardeigan during morning coffee breaks; learned her recipe for Soad Bread, and was taken in overnight during one unexpected blizzard. SHe shred my father’s birthday and always was surprised when I brought her a bouquet on July 11. A lovely lady whose cool porch was often my lunch spot,
    all sympathy to her family.

  2. My mother (Kay Coughlan, who passed away in 2001) and Jeanne were co-workers at the library and friends for many years. They had so much in common – from having attended the same schools to growing up in Woburn, to having children about the same ages. Jeanne was a kind and wonderful person. Her warmth and sense of humor shone through each time I had the good fortune to see her. Please accept my condolences on her loss. I know how hard it is to loose someone so dear.

  5. I re-entered the work world in 1989 and was so fortunate to land at the Woburn Public Library. Jeanne, along with Mary Bramley and many others on staff, were the most wonderful people to work with. Jeanne had such a gentle, kind, and soothing manner. I learned so much from her and consider her both a mentor and a friend. She will be missed. My deepest sympathies to the Hines family.
