Marguerite T. DeVito, passed away at the Hathorne Hill Nursing Home on Saturday, May 5th, at ninety-three years of age.
Born and raised on Richardson Street in Woburn, Marguerite was one of several siblings born to the late Constantino and Josephine ( Memoli) DeVito.
After graduating from Woburn High School, Marguerite began an incredible forty-three year career for Raytheon Company where she assisted in the production of the first Patriot Missile Defense System for the United States Military.
Marguerite was very devoted to both her family and friends. Along with her siblings, her nieces and nephews were her entire world and always made sure to be there for them. She loved taking them to Horn Pond, the annual Halloween parades and many family cookouts at the homestead on Richardson Street.
She developed very close friends from her work and enjoyed traveling with her girlfriends whenever she could. A passionate bingo player, Marguerite loved going to the Italian Club in Woburn for Bingo Night. She loved knitting sweaters for family and friends and always enjoyed reading a good book. In addition, she was a devoted member of St. Charles and went to Mass every Saturday night and Sunday morning.
Marguerite was always the one to be there for you when you needed someone to lean on. She took care of her family, friends and even neighbors if they needed anything from her. She was quick-witted, loved a good debate and always had a smile on her face.
