Our dear classmate Janice Breen Clutterbuck passed away on Dec. 17, 2019.
 
Janice joined our class in first grade. During high school, she was a member of the Red Cross Club and Spanish Club.
 
Here are excerpts from her obituary which appeared in the Scituate Mariner newspaper, Scituate, MA:
 
Janice M. (Breen) Clutterbuck, 67, of Scituate, MA, formerly of Plainville, passed away on Tuesday, Dec. 17, 2019 after battling Alzheimer's disease.
 
She was the beloved wife of Peter Clutterbuck for 46 years. Devoted mother of Todd Clutterbuck and his wife, Paige of Ringwood, NJ; Jason Clutterbuck and his wife, Sheena of Wrentham; and Ryan Clutterbuck and his wife, Alycia of Scituate. Cherished "Nanny" to eight grandchildren. Loving sister of Marianne Breen and her husband, Arnold Duclersaint of Deham; Maureen Breen and her partner, Kate Chesley of Palo Alto, CA; and John Breen and his wife, Gloria of Sebastopol, CA. She was predeceased by her parents, Jack and Louise Breen of Scituate.

Janice was born in Boston and grew up in East Longmeadow. She and Peter were longtime residents of Plainville, where they raised their three sons.
 
She worked for many years as a physical therapist assistant in Attleboro. Upon retirement, Janice lived in Scituate and spent the winters in Punta Gorda, FL.
 
Throughout her life, she was a voracious reader, often completing a book a week. Long walks were enjoyed daily in some of her favorite locations by the water. Janice also adored visits from her grandchildren, especially during those warm days that could be spent enjoying the outdoors.
 
In lieu of flowers, contributions in her memory may be made to the Alzheimer's Association, 309 Waverley Oaks Rd., Waltham, MA 02452.
