Martha Peabody Obituary

Martha Peabody, 75, a lifelong resident of Newbury, passed peacefully on December 26, 2023, at The Sunrise of Lynnfield surrounded by the love of her family. Martha was born in Newburyport, MA on June 16, 1948, to the late Albert and Rita (Pettengil) Peabody.

 

Martha graduated from The University of Maine Orono with a Bachelor's Degree in Anthropology.  A true artist in every way, Martha owned several gift shops throughout the years where she sold her handmade items. In addition, she was a talented seamstress making Halloween costumes for her kids and grandkids, endless pillows and drapes and multiple prom dresses. She was also gifted in floral arranging and gardening, which was proven by being on the Newburyport Garden Tour (a lifelong goal). She had an amazing ability to make everything she touched beautiful and everyone she met feel special.

  

Martha kept social and enjoyed her time with The Ipswich Summer Theatre, The Newburyport Garden Club as well as The Choral Society of Newburyport.

 

Martha is survived by her loving children, Stephen L. Hopping Jr. and his wife Rebecca of Hampton, NH, Christopher R. Hopping and his wife Kris of La Quinta, CA and Emily M. Field and her husband Daniel of Lynnfield, MA, her cherished grandchildren, Collin Dyes-Hopping, Juniper Dyes-Hopping, Lucas Dyes-Hopping, Jacob Hopping, Stephanie Hopping, Brady Field, Grayson Field and Sawyer Field as well as her dear sister, Molly Shamus and her husband David of Newbury, MA.
