OBITUARY:

Marjorie P. (Lavacchia) Amato passed away at the Merrimack Valley Hospice Home in New Hampshire, Sunday evening after a brief illness. The beloved wife of the late John Amato, who just passed away a yeas ago, was ninety three years of age.

Born in Woburn, she was the one of five children and the only daughter born to the late Charles and Lillian E. (Grammer) Lavacchia. Raised in the North Woburn section of the city, Margie went to the Linscott Elementary and then off to Woburn High School where she was a proud graduate of Woburn High School, along with the Class of 1941.

Margie had met her dear husband John at a football game while in high school. He had entered the service during WWII and when home on leave he married his sweetheart and together they journeyed the next seventy two years together.

Margie had worked at Sylvania after high school and after the children were grown she worked at the Woburn District Court House during the tenure of Judges Cullen, Gilgun and Jackson which covered twenty five years, retiring in 1997.

They brought two children into the world, whom they where devoted. Margie was the consummate Mother. Her home always immaculate, she was a wonderful cook, making outstanding Italian dishes, which as years went on were the highlights of many Sunday dinners at the homestead ! Always treasured times with the family. Once the children married and began families of their own the chairs at the dining room table increased and conversation was plentiful.

Sporting events were a high priority in the Amato homestead. Whether it was the children, grandchildren or Red Sox, they were all actively involved in many sports and always there to route each other on! When Margie had some quiet time she always enjoyed reading the newspaper and then proceeding on with the puzzles, criptaquotes, and brain teasers all throughout the years.

A very sweet woman Margie was always there to lend a helping hand not just to her own family, but to really anyone in need. Her very kind and gentle demeanor was truly a comfort, at any time, any where and for any purpose, as Margie was always, genuine and compassionate throughout her ninety three years.

Sadly in addition to her parents Margie was predeceased just over a year ago by her beloved husband John and her dear brothers Gerald, Charles and William Lavacchia.

Margie was the loving mother of Jacquelyn E. “Jackie” Langenfeld, her husband Charles of Nashua, NH and Charles J. Amato, his wife Gail of Tewksbury. Dear sister of Francis Lavacchia of Woburn. Doting grandmother of Christopher, Brian Langenfeld and his wife Clare,Candice Sousa and her husband Bryant and Nicholas Amato and great grandchildren John, Jacob, Declan, and Aileen Langenfeld, Evan and Thomas Sousa. A Funeral Mass will be held Wednesday, November 9th, at 11:00 a.m. in St. Anthony’s Church, 851 Main Street, Woburn. Interment in Calvary Cemetery, Winchester. Relatives and friends are respectfully invited to call at the Lynch-Cantillon Funeral Home, Wednesday morning from 8:30-10:30 a.m. before the Mass. Remembrances may be made in memory of Marjorie to the Community Hospice House, 210 Naticook Road, Merrimack, NH 03054.
