Deborah Ann Field

Deborah Ann Field, 69, of Brighton, died peacefully on July 7 surrounded by members of her extended family. Deborah suffered a tragic accident a week prior which left her a quadriplegic. She was the daughter of the late Nancy (Leahy) and John Field. A graduate of Girls Latin School, where she worked on the literary magazine, Deb earned a perfect score in the College Board Entrance Exam. She attended Emmanuel College, was on the staff of the literary magazine, and maintained a close connection with the school, including serving as president of the Alumnae Association. She earned a master’s degree in Celtic studies from the Pontifical Institute of Medieval Studies at the University of Toronto and taught Celtics topics at Harvard College. She is survived by cousins Joseph, James, Christopher, Kenneth, Paul, Peter and Gerard Leahy. Deb was a long-time employee of Boston University Dept. of Physiology and Bio-Physics and a dedicated fan of the Boston Red Sox but it was her association with Boston Ballet that filled much of her time. She was a volunteer at Boston Ballet Company for more than twenty years serving as past-president and past-treasurer of the Boston Ballet Volunteer Association and as a guide for backstage tours. She was honored as the recipient of the Golden Toe Shoe Award. She was an avid reader and enjoyed almost any type of music, especially Irish, both popular and traditional. She was always upbeat, fun, interested and ready for the next thing. In lieu of flowers, kindly make a donation to the Boston Ballet, Development Department, 19 Clarendon Street, Boston MA 02116 with “In Memory of Deborah Field” written in the notes, or online at Funeral from the Dolan Funeral Home, 460 Granite Ave., EAST MILTON, Friday, July 31 at 10:00 AM.

Sharon was a dedicated mother and a fighter. Her beautiful spirit and loving energy made everyone to want to be around her. She was kind, friendly, happy, positive, sweet, upbeat, silly, caring, and loving. Her smile was infectious and her laugh instantly cheered you up. She was always supportive and encouraging to her family, friends and even random strangers she would meet.

Sharon graduated Lynnfield High School in 1994 and went on to Alabama State College (ASU). She returned to Boston five years later and started her career at the Tufts Dental School of Medicine, where Group Practice 8 was her staple. Sharon was a dedicated worker and gave 110% of herself every day. She received numerous awards, positive evaluations, and attended several appreciation dinners to honor her hard work. She enjoyed her work and co-workers so much that even when she was under the weather it took her supervisor’s prodding for her to seek medical attention.
