Marian E. Wyman of Tavern Way in Hanson passed away peacefully at her home on Wednesday, June 24, 2020

Marian was born in Weymouth, Massachusetts on June 3, 1929, daughter of Marion and Vernon Mathews. She grew up in Hanover and graduated from Hanover High School in 1947.

She married the love of her life, Les Wyman, in 1948 and they lived in California and Ohio before settling in Hanson and building their home and family.

Marian was an avid reader and loved gardening, traveling, and bird watching. She was a regular contributor to her husband's newspaper column, Grass Roots, as "Mrs. Garden Writer." She also loved spending time with her many grandchildren. She will be dearly missed.

Marian was a person who cared deeply for family and friends and never met a stranger twice, quick to make friends and strike up conversations wherever she went.

Surviving family includes her sister, Doris Mathews of Hanson; daughter Joanne Gauley and her husband Bill of West Buxton, Maine; son Philip Wyman and wife Jean of Hanson; daughter Nancy Hughes and her husband Rob of Meredith, New Hampshire; son Paul Wyman and his wife Winnie of Plymouth; daughter Karen Monahan and her husband Kevin of Newport, New Hampshire; along with 16 grandchildren and 10 great-grandchildren.

Lester "Bud" Wyman Jr. passed away on Wednesday, August 19, 2020.

Born in 1927, Bud called Hanson, Massachusetts, home since 1958. He was a graduate of Rockland High School (Class of 1944), and an alumnus of the University of Massachusetts Amherst (BS 1953) and Bridgewater State University (MEd 1965). In his lifetime, he was a China Marine; a Hood milkman; a Hanson firefighter; a school teacher at Silver Lake Regional High School; a Hanson town assessor; and the owner of his own business for decades: Wyman Nursery. He was an avid reader, a devoted library patron, and a Red Sox fan. He was a member of Wampatuck Lodge A.F. & A.M. for over 50 years. Bud was a loyal member of the Silver Lake Chapel in Plympton. Most importantly, he was the beloved father of five children and a devoted husband to Marian Wyman for 72 years until her passing on June 24 of this year.

For most of his adult life, Bud greeted family, friends, and customers at his garden center with a genuine smile, a wholeheartedly sincere handshake and a greeting that often included one's full and complete name. He remembered not only your name, but your children's names, and your address because he was – truly – the quintessential "people person."

Bud – and later Marian, too – authored a regular column in The Brockton Enterprise, "Grass Roots." Those columns were eventually compiled into a book that Bud loved sharing with admirers and strangers alike. Stepping out for a meal at one of their favorite restaurants, Bud was often stopped with a question on a gardening dilemma. He reveled in giving advice on the topic that was both his vocation and avocation. At one point, he extolled that advice on a call-in radio show on WATD. He built a community one garden question at a time. The nursery that he envisioned, then created, is still more than a garden center – it's the locus of memories for the many kids and adults that once called it their workplace; the place families still go to buy Christmas trees; the place dreamers buy their best-ever vegetable garden seeds, and so much more. Their Hanson neighbors and community will miss Bud's friendly presence; the nursery will miss his guiding presence, and Lester and Marian's family will miss their loving presence.

Lester is survived by daughter Joanne Gauley and her husband Bill; son Philip Wyman and wife Jean; daughter Nancy Hughes and her husband Robert; son Paul Wyman and his wife Winnie; daughter Karen Monahan and her husband Kevin; and a number of grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
