Marguerite D. Severance

June 23, 1927 - September 06, 2018

Holly Hill Marguerite "Peggy" Severance, 91, passed away September 6, 2018, at her home at the Bishops Glen Healthcare Center in Holly Hill, FL. She grew up in Aroostook County, the daughter of Simon and Pearl Deveau of Monticello, ME. She lived her working and family-raising years in Bangor and her retirement years in Ormond Beach, FL.

After high school she came to Bangor for secretarial training at Husson College and used those skills as a school secretary in Bangor where she developed lifelong friendships.

Marguerite and her husband, Avon, enjoyed camping and dancing and were members of local organizations for those interests. She had a love for card games and was a frequent winner at Bingo in her retirement community! More importantly, she was a homemaker, creating an environment of love, support, and encouragement to each of her four children, nine grandchildren, and eight great-grandchildren.

Marguerite is predeceased by her husband Avon, her brother Paul Deveau, and her partner in her later years, Everett Gray of Brewer. She is survived by her children: Rebecca of Philadelphia , Kathryn of Ormond Beach, Stephen of Bangor, Brenda of Ormond Beach, and their families. Also survived by her nephew Paul Gregg Deveau of Florida. Her burial will be alongside her husband in Mt. Hope Cemetery. The service to celebrate her life will be private.

So sorry to hear of Peg's passing. We have been out of touch for many years but I do have fond memories of our camping day when both our husbands were living. Prayers for her children and families.

I am saddened to hear of the loss of your mom. Peggy was the secretary at 14TH ST. when I first started teaching. She was lots of fun and a big help to me. I corresponded with her through email a few years ago. My condolences to your family.
