Marine owned the Tuscan Rose on the Grafton Common, a European Gift Boutique, for many years.  She had previously worked for over twenty years at Bergson’s 1790 House in Westborough, retiring as function manager and coordinator.

She was a member of Saint Anne’s Church, where she happily dedicated her time as a Eucharistic Minister, decorating the Altar for holidays and seasons throughout the year.  She also taught CCD and made certain the parish priests were well taken care of.

Marine enjoyed portrait painting and loved music and dancing.  She and Butch would often go to the Frohsinn Club or the El Morocco to listen to music and dance the night away.  She loved her grandchildren and was happy to spend time with them, whether a quiet night or an all-day shopping adventure.  The family that surrounded her gave her great joy.

There are no calling hours.

A Funeral Mass will be celebrated on Wednesday, October 26, at 11 a.m. at Saint Anne’s Church, 120 Boston Turnpike Road (route 9 east), Shrewsbury. (Please go directly to church).  Interment will follow in Mountain View Cemetery, Shrewsbury.
