Anita MacFee

February 17, 1955 — March 8, 2024

Weymouth

Anita MacFee (Farrin), age 69, of South Weymouth passed away peacefully at home with loving family by her side on Friday, March 8, 2024.

Anita was born in Lewes, Delaware to the late Dr. Leon H. and Bonnie (Buchholz) Farrin. She is also predeceased by her sister, Linda.

After graduating from Weymouth South High School in 1973, Anita went on to study music education at Wheaton College. She loved to play the organ and piano and later served as choir director at South Shore Baptist church for many years.

Anita met her high school sweetheart, William, when they both took summer jobs at Monahan’s Marine in 1972. They were married in 1981 and settled in Weymouth to raise their family. Blessed with two daughters, Laura and Sarah, Anita dedicated herself to creating a nurturing home for her family, also later acting as Comptroller to the family business, Systems Support Corporation. Willie and Anita both retired in 2010 and enjoyed their time cruising the Caribbean, vacationing in Florida, and fishing in Maine.

Feeling most at home on the water, she had a special passion for sailing and held deep pride for the time she spent serving in the United States Coast Guard Auxiliary.

She is survived by her beloved husband, William MacFee, her daughter Laura Jackson and her husband Stephen, daughter Sarah MacFee, and her grandson, Ethan. Anita will also be dearly missed by her dog, Teddy, and granddog, Charlie.

Anita will be fondly remembered for her warm heart, genuine kindness, strong faith, sense of humor, Patriotism, and devotion to her family. She radiated love to all those around her and was a proud Christian throughout her life. The family would like to extend heartfelt gratitude to Shanika Gray, Neusa Monteiro, and Kanisha Johnson who so lovingly cared for her.
