Marguerite attended Milford Public Schools and Elizabeth Otis Hair Design School, working as a hairdresser until she had children. Her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren were the light of her life. Marge loved to cook and bake, especially traditional Italian food and cookies. Sunday dinners around her dining room table were memorable events. Her Friday pizza nights were legendary. Marge loved sitting at the Tuesday night Milford Band Concerts listening to her husband Ed play trumpet. She spent many happy years living in Florida, where she loved to cook for, and entertain, her friends and neighbors, especially her good friend Liz Melpanigano. Marge and her husband could be found sitting on their porch reading books every afternoon.
She was a communicant of Sacred Heart Church in Milford and St. Francis Xavier Church in Ft. Myers, FL.
The family would like to thank the entire staff of Genesis of Milford for their support and loving care for the last 9 months. And to Seasons Hospice Palliative Care
and her hospice nurse Brandy for their compassionate care.
