Margie was born in Worcester, daughter of the late Joseph LaBoffa and Evelyn Kittredge. She graduated from Commerce High School in 1950 and lived in Shrewsbury for 60 years.
Margie married the love of her life, Ed, in 1952. Together they raised their 5 children with an unwavering love and affection. Her love of family and her generous, fun-loving nature were evident in everything she did. She looked forward to hosting large annual summer pool/volleyball parties along with holiday and birthday celebrations. In their later years, Ed & Margie spent many winters in Tequesta, Florida and enjoyed traveling extensively with friends and family.
Marge was an avid mahjong player for over 50 years playing as often as possible with the “Mahjong Girls” right up until recently. She was an avid reader, enjoyed cooking, playing golf, bridge, dominos, Uno, and any games that would bring family together for some fun and laughter. She was a faithful member of Saint Mary’s Parish in Shrewsbury and a long-time member of the Daughters of Isabella.
