    It’s hard to know where to begin when you’ve known
    and loved someone your whole life. Marguerite was
    a wonderful friend growing up and continued to be
    as we grew into adults. Her kindness, strength and
    love of life endured until the very end. I will miss
    having her in my life…our friendship lasted our entire 65+ years and I will never forget her. She will be in my heart and my thoughts until it’s time for us to meet up again. God bless you my dear friend…I’ll miss and love you forever.

    Marguerite was the Sister I never had. A best friend for 34 years. I loved her dearly, and always will.
    Thank you dear friend for being you.

    Marguerite has been a friend for 65+ years, so you can imagine that we shared many, many moments of lasting memories… as children growing up in Astoria projects, to mature women having experienced many of life’s joys and sorrows. I am deeply saddened by her passing, and not sure that i have completely processed this yet. My heart hurts for the void left in our lives, especially for her children and grandchildren, and at the same time, I am happy that she is no longer suffering. I have no doubt that she has gone straight to heaven and is reunited with Patrice and Johnny and her parents. I will think of her often and I’m thankful for having her in my life all of these years.

    Rest in peace, my dear friend. You will be missed. xoxo


    Joanie, I am so sorry to read this news about your sister. My sincere condolences to you and your family. My thoughts and prayers are with you and them.

    Words seem inadequate for what I feel upon the loss of my dear friend of 65+ years. Marguerite had a heart of gold and was kind and generous to family and friends. Remembering the times we shared, especially as teenagers and all our antics…..the laughter, and some tears also, brings comfort. My heart breaks for her family….her children and grandchildren. now facing life without her. But, Marguerite provided strength to them; they will find peace and joy in remembering her spirit — which remains in all our hearts.

    RIP Marguerite; I will miss you always….xo

    Marguerite was a wonderful person. She brought so much joy to everyone that knew her. She never complained – she was a real trooper. She loved life. It was very obvious how much she loved her children and grandchildren. Every summer I looked forward to our weekend visit to Marguerite in Wildwood. We always had a great time. Sitting on the porch talking and laughing. I will miss her and my heart goes out to her family. May she rest in peace.

    I am so sorry for your loss. I worked with Marguerite in the Verizon building she retired from. Marguerite was such a nice, kind hearted, and professional co worker. I recall sitting at her desk and looking at the pictures and talking about her family with her. We all hated to see her retire.

    Dear Marie and Dennis! No words can describe how much I and Liz sharing your loss. I met your mom 34 years ago at telesphere company. Marguerite was my first Boss in US. Being knowledgeable demanding as a boss she had exceptionally great human abilities to help to listen to help. During these years we became friends. Dennis I remember when your mom shared with me how wonderful her son is. Marie I remember how she was proud of your accomplishments and of course she was always talked about her kids, sisters family. Never forget our years working together and holidays in your house never forget how she helped others didn’t expecting anything in return. She always had time to care to help. I can’t forgive myself that didn’t look at Facebook a month to be able to come to the funeral. My family loved her and all of you very much and it will stays always. It’s hard to loose any family members but MOM is the hardest. Remember if ever need anything I can help you with or want to share I will be always there for you. Your mother was a special person with golden heart. We share your loss.
