January 17, 1930 – December 4, 2020
Margaret Theresa (Bono) Broger, 90, of Woodbridge, VA, died peacefully surrounded by family on Friday, December 4, 2020. She was a resident of Woodbridge and a member of Our Lady of Angels Catholic Church for 57 years. At Our Lady of Angels, she was active with the Knights of Columbus Council 5750 Ladies Auxiliary, a member of the St Paul United Methodist Church Fun Bunch, and participated in numerous volunteer activities throughout her life where she made life-long friends. Born in Springfield, NJ, in 1930, Margaret was the ninth child of Phillip and Margaret Bono; and a graduate of Jonathon Dayton HS in 1948, where she was a member of the business school. Preceded in death by her parents, beloved husband John F. Broger, daughter Sharon Hash, and granddaughter Sydney Horowitz-Broger . She is survived by her 5 children, John II (Laurie), Margie Rahm (Jack), Tim, Billy (Luanne), and Becki Rinker (Mike); 13 grandchildren, Destini, Rachael, Gina, Amber, Colleen, Demi, Taylor, Jacquelyn, Chuck, Michael, Samantha, Nick, and Lauren; and 8 great-grandchildren Elijah, Terrance, Jordan, Karlie, James, Reed, Wade, and Styles.
Margaret was a huge fan of Elvis Presley and loved cardinals. She enjoyed traveling and the associated adventures as an Air Force wife and with friends, but she always said there was no place like home. Margaret was a devoted wife and homemaker and raised her children with love and devotion. She was happiest when she was surrounded by her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Margaret loved to cook, bake, and family trips to Myrtle Beach, but mostly she loved just hanging out and spending time with her family and friends. She will be remembered as being committed to her family. She will be missed dearly, but she will be celebrated daily as her loving spirit and heart lives on in the lives she touched.
Her family will receive friends on Sunday, December 20, from 12-1 pm at Demaine Funeral Home, 10565 Main Street, Fairfax, VA, immediately followed by a Catholic Funeral Mass at 1 pm. Interment will be at Arlington National Cemetery at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation at https://www.jdrf.org/donate/

To John, Margie, Tim, Billy, Becky, and all the family, my sincerest condolences to you all at this sad time. Wishing you all peace, comfort, courage, and lots of love at this time of sorrow. I wish I could be there with you all and my three beautiful granddaughters but the Pandemic has kept me from making the trip with the girls. I was happy to see Margaret last fall at Amber's and Wade's baby shower. Her memory will forever be in our hearts. RIP Mrs. Broger

My youngest Aunt Margaret had an infecives laugh and a great sense of humor. Living so far from all the family I didn't see her often but last time I saw her was very nice at Janice's
birthday party. So glad she was able to be there.

One of my favorite memories of your mom is when Tom and I would fight over her lemon squares. She always said they were so easy to make but NO ONE could make them as special as your mom did. She was the best and will be remembered fondly.

Our deepest condolences to John, Margie, Tim, Billy, Becky and all the family. Your Mom was a special one of a kind woman! She will always be remembered with great memories, from when we moved in next door with tales of being family with Cher!! We believed, for a little while. She will be remembered of her love of anything Elvis, but mainly how she loved each one of you. May you take strength in knowing she is with Jesus, your Dad, and of course Sharon.
You will be in our prayers.
