Lois M. (Mugford) Scipione, a longtime resident of Hingham and summer resident of Chatham, formerly of Duxbury, passed away on Saturday, January 1, 2022, at the Pat Roche Hospice Home after a brief illness. She was 83.
Born in Plymouth on March 21, 1938, she was the daughter of the late Loring R.C. and Minerva (Sprague) Mugford. Lois was raised in Duxbury and attended local schools. She was a graduate of Simmons College with a degree in business.
