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.
