Marie Louise Garvey

OLD TOWN and BRIDGEWATER, MA --Marie Louise Garvey “Mammie”, 76, passed away peacefully at Pushaw Lake, surrounded by her family on July 23, 2020.

She is survived by her daughter Amanda Marquis and husband Donald, her grandson Jack and his siblings Riley and Griffin, her sister Jeanne Delmar, and her nieces and nephews Amy, Mark and Jon, Denise and Keith, Lauren, Scott and Curtis, and many grand and great-grand nieces and nephews whom she adored.

She was born in Boston on March 14, 1944 to her mother Helen P. (Rice) Bianchi, and father Delmo Bianchi. She is also predeceased by her loving husband Thomas A. Garvey, in 2007, her sister Eleanor, and brothers Eddie and Gene, and nieces Jeannie and Paula.

Marie grew up in Boston, then lived in Bridgewater for many years with her husband Tom. She worked various jobs where she no doubt made many friends, but retired from her favorite job as a teaching assistant for students with special needs, followed by a job as a secretary in the Bridgewater school system.

She loved God, and was part of the heart of Central Square Congregational Church where she was a Sunday school teacher, leader, and volunteer. She will be missed, especially by her good friend Debbie. Marie was a loving wife, nurturing mother, and a good friend to so many people. Marie loved her family fiercely, and absolutely enjoyed family gatherings. Her infectious laugh was always heard around the one’s she loved. She was adored by her family as “Auntie Marie or Auntie Ree-Ree”. She bravely moved to Maine over 12 years ago to live closer to her daughter, and the whole Marquis family welcomed her with open arms. Her grandson Jack named her “Mammie”, and was a bright light in her life. Jack and Mammie enjoyed riding her scooter, watching Ellen, doing puzzles, playing “cahds”, and snuggling her grandpuppies. Marie touched many lives, was kind, and full of laughter.

Donations can be made in her name to the American Lung Association www.lung.org

A small outside service will be held at camp in Maine at a later date, followed by a burial that will be scheduled in Massachusetts for her to rest at peace with Tom.

I remember friday nights at the Bianchi's on Stratton street. They lived on the 2and floor of a 6 family tenement house. I lived on the other side, first floor. We were best friends. Friday nights Pauline Bianchi went food shopping and she always came home with treats for us.. We would watch the Perry Como show and take turns kissing him on the tv. We shared an almost idyllic childhood together with our pets, games, adventures and secrets. We became "blood brothers. " Rest in peace, Marie.
