Margaret and Karl Gronberg, formerly of Grafton


Margaret and Karl GronbergGrafton – Margaret “Peg” (Clark) and Karl Gronberg were inseparable in life and will be lovingly remembered together as their souls are reunited once again. Peg passed away on Sept. 1, 2021, at Cape Cod Hospital following an illness, while Karl passed on March 24, 2020, at Sterling Village.

Peg was born on Sept. 3, 1948, in Weymouth, daughter of the late Grace (Sullivan) and Robert Clark, while Karl was born March 27, 1949, in Quincy, son of the late Mary (Pietila) and Karl Gronberg.

Peg and Karl both attended Weymouth High School, but ironically never actually met there. Their life-long romance began at Sears and Roebuck where they both worked several years later, and they went on to celebrate 50 years of marriage together.

During the late 1970s they moved to Grafton where they lived for many years before realizing a dream, they had to live on Cape Cod where they called Yarmouthport home throughout their retirement. While their happiness was easily found once they crossed the Bourne Bridge, Peg and Karl traveled often and treasured their time in Hawaii and also Colorado where they would travel to visit their grandchildren.

They leave behind their loving children, Karl Gronberg, Kerri Higgins and her husband Dave, Kathryn Leofanti and her husband John, and Erik Gronberg, and their grandchildren, Ty and Brynn Gronberg and Conor Higgins. Peg also leaves her brothers, Kevin and John Clark, and was predeceased by her brother, Robert Clark, while Karl is survived by his brother, Mark Gronberg.
