Grafton– Marcia I. (Gilbert) McGee, 93, passed away September 27, 2023. Her husband Frederick McGee predeceased her in 2008 and she was also predeceased by her daughter Susan McGee in 2000.
Marcia leaves her son James McGee, her grandchildren Anthony and Nick Marro, Amanda Nye and Michelle Makrinos, her sister Joanna England and several nieces and nephews.
Marcia grew up on a working turkey farm in Sudbury MA where she met her future husband Fred McGee. After a quick courtship the two married and moved to Marlborough where they began raising their two children eventually selling their home there and moving to Grafton.
A graduate of Lasalle College she worked part time in a dental office but spent most of her time raising her children and helping out on the family farm.
Marcia was from a bygone era, besides being a talented artist she could plant a garden, sew a quilt or cook a delicious meal. She had a sweet and loving disposition, a fact that never changed even as she suffered from dementia in the later years of her life.
She was always there to lend a helping hand and seldom thought of herself whether it was taking care of her husband in the final years of his life or helping out with her grandchildren after the untimely passing of her daughter Sue. She never considered it a chore only a blessing.
She was small in stature but had a huge presence and will be greatly missed by her friends and family.
All are welcome to gather with Marcia’s family and friends Tuesday October 3rd from 5 to 7pm at Roney Funeral Home 152 Worcester St. N. Grafton, MA 01536. A prayer service will be held Wednesday October 4th at 11:00am at the funeral home. She will then be laid to rest at Fairview Cemetery in South Grafton.
