Cynthia Damelio, 3rd Grade Teacher


Cindy is a veteran teacher who is extremely well organized. She teaches 15 children in her third grade class and also teaches Mathematics to 14 children during “class crossover” time. Signs in Cindy’s classroom remind children of the times for various events: get ready, morning work, spelling and vocabulary, reading, group, grammar, lunch, mathematics, writing, integrated studies, and homework/jobs.


Cindy received a BA in Elementary Education with a Concentration in Early Childhood from Notre Dame College. Later, she was certified with a Concentration in Special Education. Cindy has taught 1st, 2nd, and 3rd grades at ECS for 30 years. She has also coached softball, helped in the Homework Club, and worked on AR night with Karen Goulet.


Cindy loves to watch how her students grow. She always tells her kids, “We learn from each other, and should help each other. We’re a team.” Cindy enjoys the small community atmosphere of ECS. She says, “I have great teammates. We get along well, plan together, bounce ideas off each other, share lessons, and support and compliment each other.” She reflects fondly on how many students she has had who are children of former students. Cindy is proud that one former student is a teacher because of her. 


Cindy would recommend that parents sit down and talk with their kids about their day and ask what it is they enjoyed about the day. She says parents should believe that “Their kids will get there eventually, so don’t worry. It’s not a race, it’s a journey.”


Cindy lives in Concord with Ava, her rescued spaniel mix. When she recently lost an older dog for which she had cared for over 10 years, she got a sympathy card from a student with five sentences (“Just the way Ms. Damelio likes it.”). In her spare time, Cindy likes to read, walk, and go to the theater, movies, and Red Sox games. 




Joanne M. Canavan


Joanne M. Canavan, 60, died unexpectedly, Sunday, August 4, 2013 at her home on Chestnut Pond Road.


Born in Marblehead, MA on June 15, 1953, Joanne was the daughter of Robert and Shirley (McCarthy) Canavan.  She grew up in Marblehead, MA and was an alumna of Salem State University. She had also lived in Goffstown before moving to Epsom 27 years ago.


She had spent several years working for NYNEX in their IT department and then as a teacher at Concord High School, Trinity High School and in Newmarket, specializing in computer training.


She was a member of the Dover Friends Meeting (NEYM) and enjoyed computers, genealogy, reading and volunteer work. She also liked the outdoors, especially the babbling brook that runs alongside her home on Chestnut Pond, bird watching, and her beloved cats, Izzy, and the late Frankie and Wicket.


Joanne is survived by brothers, Paul Canavan and his wife Kathleen of Marblehead, MA and Michael Canavan of Burlington, VT; nieces, Kelly (Canavan) McCann and her husband Joshua of Ballston Spa, NY and Katie (Canavan) Theriault and her husband Mark of Winchester, MA; great-nephews, Jack McCann and Andrew “Drew” Theriault; great-niece Emily Theriault; and her good friend, Nancy Winterbottom of Durham.


A memorial service is planned for a later date. Burial services will be private.
