Lois Jennett (Jean) MacKay (nee Clifton), 93, of Hopkinton and formerly of Portland, Oregon, passed away May 6. She was the daughter of the late Sarah E. Clifton (nee DuPuis) and John D. Clifton of Vancouver, Washington.
A loving wife, mother and a devoted and adored “Gramma Jean” of Oakhurst Road, Hopkinton, she was loved by all in her neighborhood — kids and animals alike. She loved to visit everyone with her little white dog (among others), Micky.

She leaves behind three children, Barbara Jean Thorne and husband Richard of Jacksonville, Florida, Fredric C. MacKay and wife Gail of North Kingstown, Rhode Island, and Jennifer Bachman and husband Roland (Joe) of Upton; her grandchildren, Kristin Davis and husband Sheldon, Hilary Banda and husband Christopher, Lindsey Mastroianni and husband Philip, and Caitlyn Albano and husband Joseph. She also leaves eight great grandchildren.
