Marguerite continued to work as a seamstress, her work was her passion. She loved to sew and make creations. While she was raising her family, she continued as a seamstress working from her home. Her client list grew as everyone would seek her out for their tailoring needs. She never let anything go to waste and she would find various uses for all of her materials. Her talents were endless and so were her limits. She could turn a pair of old drapes into a dress, re-wire a lamp, refinish a piece of furniture, upholster a chair or whatever needed to be repaired. Marguerite was also a proud homemaker and excellent cook. Her greatest achievement was her family, it was her biggest love and her favorite place to be was with her family.

Mary worked as a waitress at the famous Frank’s Steakhouse for 25 years. Her witty and fiery personality allowed her to love what she did.

Family was paramount in her life, from playing jokes on her siblings to being surrounded by her children & grandchildren. She loved spending time with them and always was ready for a good time with endless laughs. Mary also was an avid Boston Sports fan and loved the Red Sox & Patriots. We also think that the secret to Mary’s long life may have been her nightly glass or two of wine. Her family lost their matriarch but they will always have her in their hearts & minds for the rest of their lives.
