Marjorie E. “Margie” (Hill) Gorman – a long time resident of Woburn, passed away peacefully, February 11th. She was the beloved wife of 52 years to the late Robert E.  Gorman.

 Born in Winchester, Margie was a loving daughter of the late Leslie P. and Ruth Alison (Erksine) Hill. She was educated in Woburn and a graduate of Woburn High School, class of 1948.

Marjorie worked in the office of Filenes Basement in Boston until she married her husband Robert “Bob” and raised 5 beautiful children that they raised in the Horn Pond area of the City.   For many years, Margie worked as a Lunch Aide at the Clapp School, alongside her sister-in-law Helene. Margie also worked as A Ward Deputy and Clerk for over thirty years during elections at the Ward One Polls of Woburn. She then worked as a telephone operator for over 10 years or more at Dig Safe until she retired.

Margie loved her family and spending time with them was her greatest joy. Many family vacations were taken at Hampton Beach and in Nashua, NH as well as at Grand lake Stream in Maine.  Growing up, Margie made many memories and fun times with her cousins in Milford, NH and then they all moved to Florida. After Retirement Margie would fly to Florida for the Winter reuniting with all of them while staying with her Cousin Barbara. 

Margie was not fond of cooking but will be remembered for her tuna casserole, which her whole family loved. She enjoyed reading magazines, books and newspapers and loved keeping up with celebrity news and current events.

Margie loved people and never ever spoke a negative word about anyone! She loved animals, especially cats and had many over the years. She would tell stories about each one as if they were humans.  If a cat needed a home, you could always depend on Margie to open her door.  She was a wonderful storyteller with a great memory and would tell a story like it happened yesterday.

 Margie was the sweetest, kindest and most loving person who had a great sense of humor and always put a smile on your face anytime you saw her. She was always dressed in the latest fashion and would always sparkle with her earrings, watches and of course her pocketbooks! 

Margie is survived and will be deeply missed by her children, Robert E. Gorman Jr., his wife Joyce of Groveland, Stephen D. Gorman, his wife Donna, William C. Gorman, his wife Maryanne of Tewksbury, Alison Duran, her husband Joseph of Woburn and Christopher Gorman, his wife Melissa of Tyngsboro. Dear sister of the late David Hill, his wife Millie of Hingham. Proud grandmother of 15; Ryan, Lisa, Elaina, Seth, Matthew, Patrick, Melinda, Renae, Alicia, Eva, Cooper and Liam Gorman, Shaun, Joseph and Justin Duran, as well as 5 great-grandchildren Sam, Annie, Ethen, Mackenzie and Cole, and her darling cat Pennykins. Loving Sister-in-law of Richard  Gorman, his wife Helen of Woburn and Marion Dauphinais of Dracut.  Also survived by many living nieces and nephews.
