OBITUARY

Evelyn M. “Evie” (Martin) Love of Ipswich, MA formerly of Woburn, MA and Deerfield Beach, FL passed away on January 12th. Evie was an active octogenarian until her gallant battle with ovarian cancer began over a year ago. Evie began most days with her positive attitude, declaring “today is a new day”. She has been a dear friend and sage to many, a skillful voice of common sense. Most important to Evie, was her role as a wife, mother, mother-in-law, grandmother and great-grandmother. She was a kind and caring matriarch to her family which was clear from the continuous stream of visitors over the past months.

To her husband Al of sixty-five years she was a constant companion friend and confidant, they were like Velcro – always together. He recently wrote to her “I’m thankful I got your telephone number the night we met XOXO, Al”.

Evie is survived by her children, Shirley L. Kearns and her husband Charles of Rockport, Karen E. Love and her husband Brian Silva of Gloucester, John A. Love Jr. and his wife Maureen of Maryland, Scott E. Love and his wife Rose of Stratham, Elizabeth M. Coakley and her husband Ralph of Woburn, Louise Love–Keough of Gloucester, Robert M. Love and his wife Sheryl of Reading, David A. Love and his wife Tricia of Topsfield and Dear sister of Hugh Martin Jr.,and late wife Connie of RI, Robert; her siblings, Martin and late wife Ellen of Woburn, Richard Martin and his wife Madeline of NH, Louise Buschemi and her husband John of Woburn, Claire Murphy and late husband John of Burlington, Rita Martin of Andover and her cherished nineteen grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren. Evie is also survived by many loving nieces, nephews, great and grand.

She is predeceased by her daughter Lois M. Love, her grandson Daniel Coakley, her parents Hugh and Anna (Dolan) Martin and her siblings Francis Martin and Marie Martin.

A Funeral will be held from the Lynch-Cantillon Funeral Home, 263 Main Street, Woburn on Friday, January 19th at 11:45 a.m. followed by a Mass of Celebration in St. Charles Church, 280 Main Street, Woburn at Noon.

  1. To the Love family- my prayers are with you all at this difficult time. I have some wonderful memories of “Aunt Evie” as I know many people do. Her upbeat, optimistic loving way always made you feel good no matter what was going on. She had a wonderful sense of humor and always had a story to tell the way only she could. She cherished her time with family and I know she will truly be missed. May you feel Love, comfort, and peace knowing you will see her again. Much love- Carolyn (Murphy) Beltran and family

  5. Mr. Love, Shirley, Karen, John, Scott, Liz, Louise, Bobby, David.
    I’m so sorry to hear of your wife/mother’s passing.
    An amazing woman with an unforgettable smile!
    I had the pleasure of seeing her at the grocery store this winter . I heard “it’s little Mary McAvoy”. I saw that incredible smile. She gave me the biggest hug. We talked, she told me about the cancer. I told her how sorry I was to hear that. With a huge smile she replied, “oh well what can you do.”
    I have so many wonderful memories of Pine St and Hampton beach.
    I feel so fortunate to have known such a positive and loving person.
    Unfortunately I won’t be able to attend the service on Friday but know that each and everyone of you will be in my thoughts and prayers.
    With love Mary McAvoy

    She sure did adore her family!

    Our mom, mother-in-law, grandmother, great grandmother, and most of all our friend….Nanny. She made us laugh and always ‘looked up’ and kept us on the sunny side of things. Her great example is helping to guide us through this sad time even now. We are so thankful for the gift of her life. We love her always and in all ways.

    My Dad and I are so sorry to hear about Aunt Evie’s passing. I will always think fondly of how kind and caring Aunt Evie was to me. She had a magical way of making me laugh and see the positive in life. Having battled cancer myself this past year, I personally can admire her courageous fight. Her legacy of a life well-lived goes on.
