Regina A. McArthur

December 8, 1940 — June 28, 2024

Lifetime resident of Lowell, Regina "Jeannie" McArthur, age 83, passed away on Friday, June 28, 2024. She went peacefully as she held the hand of her youngest son, David, who took extraordinary care of her in her final year. Jeannie was a beloved teacher at Greenhalge Elementary School and was fondly remembered by her students long past her retirement. Until her passing, she was an avid learner, eager to share any knowledge that she thought her friends and family could benefit from. Jeannie was a spirited woman with a great sense of humor and many interests. She enjoyed going to flea markets, crafting, reading magazines, and talking on the phone for hours. If she gave you a ring, you knew you were in for a lengthy conversation! Jeannie also enjoyed some travels with her late husband, James McArthur Sr., having had a summer home in Lakes Region NH, a house in Florida, and trips to other places like Maine and Hawaii. We can't forget the woman's sense of fashion, as she collected clothing and accessories. She had a wardrobe unlike any other and wasn't too shy to sport a hot pink cheetah print track suit! Her favorite thing to do, however, was be in the presence of her family - unless, of course, it was her hair wash day! Jeannie is survived by her siblings, Donna Jarek and Robert "Bob" Zusin, as well as her sons and their families: David (Sr.) and Michelle McArthur and their three sons David Jr., Domenic, and Jaccob. John and Renee McArthur and their daughter Lorinda. James "Jimmy" McArthur Jr., his wife Maureen, his daughter Danielle and her children, as well as Jimmy's daughter Christina and her children. Though there will not be any services following Regina's passing, her ashes will be shared amongst her family. She will be missed, but her loved ones are sure that Jeannie is happy and at peace on the other side... with her idol, Elvis Presley. "There'll be no sadness, no sorrow, no trouble, trouble, I see. There will be peace in the valley for me, for me." We will all meet again, Somewhere In Time.

It being her wish, there will be no visitation and services will be private.
