Christine Sullivan Oct 25, 2016

Christine Barr Sullivan who lived in Salem with her husband of many years, John Neely, died suddenly on October 25 at age 72. Christine led a rich and remarkable life. A true renaissance woman, her multifaceted career took her from Capitol Hill and the State House, to serial entrepreneurship and community development. She led a community non-profit, chaired a college department, and served on many, many boards. Among her many accomplishments, she was particularly proud of one of her most recent: achieving a life-long goal of voting for a woman President of the United States - if only in the primary.

And for over forty years, she balanced her deep community and career engagement with being a devoted wife, mother, and grandmother. In an era when careers were uncommon for women, Christine managed to have it all, even if, as she was known to say, “not all at exactly the same time.” An extraordinary career, a loving family, and a community of friends, neighbors, and colleagues she treasured. As anyone who knew her will tell you, she was fierce, generous, and loyal to the people and city she loved.

Born on May 24, 1944 in Boston, MA, Christine grew up in Belmont, the daughter of William and Helen (Dolan) Sullivan. She graduated from Vassar College in 1965 and the Harvard Kennedy School of Government in 1975.

Descended from a long line of public servants, Christine’s first stop after college was Washington, D.C., where she worked for North Shore Congressman Michael Harrington, eventually serving as his Chief of Staff. Next finding a home in state government, Governor Michael Dukakis appointed her Secretary of Consumer Affairs, where she served from 1976 to 1979 as his youngest cabinet member.

While Secretary, Christine married John Neely and started their family of five. Entrepreneurship offered her the opportunity to work more flexibly while raising children. She embraced this new challenge, starting Best of Salem magazine, then launching a successful marketing and public relations firm: Hawthorne Associates. In between, she Chaired the Communications Department at Endicott College. In 2002, she became CEO of the Enterprise Center at Salem State University. This was the perfect capstone to her career, blending entrepreneurship and education, community development and government, mentoring small businesses and nurturing the creative economy. Christine loved the Enterprise Center. She knew and loved the whole North Shore, from Lynn to Ipswich and beyond. Most of all, she loved Salem.

In addition to her work life, Christine served for ten years on the Salem Planning Board, was a member of the Creative Economy Council of Massachusetts, and co-founder with Patricia Zaido of the Creative Economy Association of the North Shore. She also served as president of Historic Salem, Inc., on the Salem Award Foundation Advisory Board, and on the boards of the Salem Chamber of Commerce, the North Shore Chamber of Commerce, Beverly Bank, the Salem YMCA, Northeast ARC, and the Bentley Academy Charter School. She was about to join the board of the Salem Family Health Center. It is this commitment to public service that lives on in her family, and in the hearts of all of the people whose lives she touched.

Most recently, as a trustee of Salem’s Bentley School she was thrilled when it was upgraded by the state Department of Education from Level 4 to Level 1. She was immensely proud of the grade schoolers, parents, faculty and staff. She was in the third year of her “retirement” and constantly looking for new things to do.

In addition to her husband, Christine leaves her children: John Neely, Jr. and wife Justine of Lexington, MA, Abigail Neely and partner Alexander Breslaw of West Lebanon, NH, and William Neely of Salem; her grandchildren Rose and Koji Neely; her brother and sister, William Sullivan of Orange, MA and Mary Sullivan of Brookline, MA; and many cousins, nieces, and nephews.

Bill Baker Oct 9, 2013

William (Bill) Terence Baker, known to his closest friends as Bakes, died on October 9, 2013 at the age of 70 in his home in Reno, NV.  Bill passed in the loving care of his wife, daughters and granddaughters after a long, courageous fight with cancer.

Bill was born on May 11, 1943, in Austin, TX to Herschel Clay Baker and Barbara Ann Morris Baker, and grew up in Boston, MA with his sisters Ann and Pamela.  Bill excelled academically, scoring in the top one percentile of S.A.T. scores in the Nation.   Following in his father’s footsteps, he attended Harvard University. During college he enrolled in the Naval Reserve Officers Training Corps and out of 21 men (7 from Harvard, 7 from Princeton and 7 from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute) he was chosen 1st Cadet, the #1 Midshipman.

Bill always has an adventurous side, however, and despite his New England roots in academia, in his early 20s he left Boston to chase his dreams west.  Hitchhiking across the States, he worked many odd jobs, like bar keep and ranch hand, until the road led him to the love of his life, Carol Sue Casaday and her young daughter, Lauren.   The romance sparked at campfire sing-alongs on a guest ranch in Arizona, with Bill on his guitar and Carol singing harmony and took the two on a road trip across Europe, to a cottage on Cape Cod, and through a couple of “Goodbye, Forevers” before the real love story officially began.

Bill married Carol on September 2, 1970 in Nogales, Sonora, Mexico.  Together they raised three daughters, Lauren, Molly and Amy, living in North Lake Tahoe, CA until 1986, when they moved to Reno.  Bill made his career in the gaming industry and his work ethic, loyalty and dedication earned  him respect from both his co-workers and employers, many of his work relationships developing into lifelong friendships.  In 2011, after over 45 years of working in casinos, Bill retired from Circus Circus.

Bill loved music, dogs and children, and most of all appreciated a good joke, a good story, told “verbatim” and a good time.   An avid reader, he was rarely without a book, either in his pocket or on his desk, and always enjoyed a good detective novel.  He loved to play his guitar and had a terrific voice. He and Carol entertained all of their friends and family for many years singing together and one of their best was Donovan’s “Try and Catch the Wind”.  Bill was also a skilled stone mason, capable of building almost anything and his beautiful work can be found in homes and landscaping throughout Tahoe. His remarkable intelligence and sense of humor, combined with his vast knowledge of the world, made him approachable and loved by all he met.

His study was where he loved to spend the majority of his time in his later years, and it was a place where our family would often gather, tell stories and share a lot of laughter.  Even in the worst of times, Bill was a man who could lighten your sadness with his humor, and make you feel that everything would be ok.  His generosity was renowned, as was his integrity.

 Most of all though, Bill was just a guy that you wanted to spend time with, and he will be so very missed by all of us that were fortunate to know him and have him in our lives. Shortly before his death Bill told his family he believed, "Living a good life is its own reward." Bill Baker lived a good life.

Bill is survived by his wife of 43 years, Carol Casaday Baker in Reno, daughters Sauret Casada in Garberville, CA, Molly Baker in Seattle, WA, and Amy Baker in Reno, granddaughters Hana Farley in Santa Cruz, CA, Casaday Baker in Reno, and sisters Ann (and husband Jon) Reed in Walker Valley, NY, and Pamela (and husband Steven) Rearden in Herndon, VA, as well as his loyal companion and best friend “Whippy.”

Pauline F. Carlson

Bev Cunningham sent this memorial for Pauline:

My oldest friend, Pauline Carlson passed away on January 2, 2013. She succumbed to pneumonia when her rheumatoid arthritis destroyed her ability to fight infection. Not only does RA ravage one’s immune system, it leaves its victims in constant pain. Pauline once told me that she never had more than fifteen minutes free of pain. Despite her discomfort, Pauline continued to work as an RN case manager; she refused to become the ultimate “couch potato”. She loved to travel and managed to keep up with the pace as I dragged her through the streets London, Paris and northern Italy. Pauline even bounced back from a tumble on the cobbled sidewalks in Florence. She was a real trooper with a sense of humor. Pauline and I were Girl Scouts, Rainbow girls and members of the Methodist Youth Fellowship. We saw the Eagles at Boston Garden engulfed in a cloud of marijuana; James Taylor and YoYo Ma at Tanglewood; a Shakesphere play at his restored theater in the round in London. We went to the Moulon Rouge in Paris and Denali in Alaska. We smelled the flowers in Monet’s garden and walked the mysterious formations at Stonehendge. We were in each other’s weddings. We partied together and we supported each other in the not so happy times. Pauline loved her pets. She was an avid sports fan. She followed the Bruins and the Sox and supported her great nephews’ athletic endeavors. She enjoyed knitting, reading and music. She loved her cars. She relished travel and “fine dining”. Pauline could be brutally honest yet she was compassionate and loving. She was a loyal friend. There will never be another Pauline Carlson; she was, in the words of Tina Turner who we saw at TD Garden together, “simply the best”. Because she was my friend, my history is richer and more memorable. A day does not pass that I do not think of our adventures together and feel the loss of her company. May she be free of pain and resting happily in the loving company of her beloved parents and pets.
