Did You Know? (Steve and Deanna Furey)

That Steve and Deanna met and became sweethearts while attending Gloucester High School, and are still together 5 kids and 7 grandkids later?  They don’t look anywhere near old enough to have 7 grandkids, do they? They now live in Jacksonville, FL, but come back each year to visit.  Also, did you know that Deanna’s maternal great grandfather was Percy Wheeler, Mayor of Gloucester in the 1920’s, and that Steve’s Dad, John Furey, was the football coach for Gloucester High in the late 60’s and early 70’s?  Also, Deanna’s paternal great grandfather, Antonio Landoni, came here from Italy and became a stonecutter at the Lanesville Quarry.  And Deanna’s Uncle, Jack Sawyer who was the electrical inspector for Gloucester, lived in the Fitz Henry Lane house when he was a boy.  Steve and Deanna are also new subscribers to Good Morning Gloucester after meeting Joey yesterday at David Cox’s antique store on Main Street yesterday.  When it’s time for the GMG bug to bite you, it bites hard and repeatedly.  Two great new additions to the GMG family.

About E.J.

Artist, researcher, writer, spiritual traveler of this fascinating orb we inhabit, lover of life and all it has to offer. Hi everyone out there in GMG land. My name is Ellen “E.J.” Lefavour (a/k/a “Ejay Khan” – the pseudonym I used during my years as a political activist artist). I moved to Cape Ann in September of 2010, and was thrilled to be invited by Joey to become a daily contributor to Good Morning Gloucester in December of that year. I am a painter, photographer and writer who has lived and worked as an artist for 20 years, since leaving the corporate world in 1990 to pursue my passion. My contributions to GMG will consist of images (either my paintings, photographs, montages or the occasional video) and a little history about the image, called “Did you Know?” I hope to come up with tidbits of information that people don’t already know, or had forgotten they knew. As I am new here, everything is new and fascinating to me, especially the amazing history, so bear with me if I post something that is common knowledge – I’ll eventually come up with something that’s new to you. As an artist, I will also write about the incredible art scene on Cape Ann. Please take a minute to comment on my posts, like them or not, especially if you have corrections or something to add, as that is how I, and all of us, learn. Have a Good Morning Gloucester, and a blessed day.
