Dear Friends and Fellow Parishioners of Ascension Memorial Church,
Earlier this week Charlie Laughton, husband to Ellen, father to Cindy (Laughton) Quimby, and grandfather to Charlie and John, suffered a heart attack at his home. He was taken to the hospital in Beverly where he died several hours later. Charlie was just 74 and a much beloved, highly respected member of the Ipswich community. His kind, generous, jovial, live-each-day-fully presence and character will be greatly missed and long remembered by his close-knit family, his many friends, and by his deeply loyal fellow Masons and VFW Veterans.
The Burial Office Rite with Holy Communion in honor of Charlie will be held this Saturday, April 9th at 10AM at Ascension Memorial Church, with Committal service at Highland Cemetery and reception at Boone Hall to follow.
