Margaret and her family moved to Marlborough in 1963. She worked at Digital Equipment, Space Age Electronics, and Data Translations as a manufacturing technician and supervisor. While working she raised a family of seven children, was a parishioner of St. Ann’s Parish in Marlborough until its closing in 2004 and enjoyed spending time with friends. She loved cooking and bringing her family together for Sunday dinners. She also loved attending to her many gardens, giving advice on gardening, and helping others with their ailing plants.
Upon retirement, Margaret spent much of her time with her grandchildren, providing childcare, helping with homework, and attending sporting and school events. She was called Nana by all who came to know and love her. She was a parishioner and volunteer at St. Bernadette Parish in Northborough and a volunteer at Our Father’s Table in Marlborough. In her down time, she enjoyed crocheting and watching the Red Sox, many times “coaching from the couch.”
