Obituary for Marjorie Evelyn Collagan

Marjorie “Marge” Evelyn Collagan was a caring wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother and friend. She left this world peacefully in her sleep the morning of July 18, 2022 at the age of 90. She was the epitome of a strong, New England woman. She was stubborn, fierce, sassy, strong-willed and a prankster, as well as loving, caring and would do anything for those she loved.

She was born on May 11, 1932 and grew up in Belmont, Mass.. She attended Belmont High School. As a teenager, she met the love of her life, Bob Collagan. Bob’s brother Wally married Marge’s cousin. The two met through family and quickly became family themselves. A true love story for the ages.

Marge went on to her career as a typist and together, Bob and Marge had 3 children: Jill, Sharon and Laurie. Jill left this world too early, and Marge is survived by her husband Bob, her daughters Sharon and Laurie, Laurie’s husband Paul Roach, 8 grandchildren, Jessi Robinson and her husband Randy Robinson, Nicole Teabo, Scott Teabo, Kaitlyn Fusco and her husband Nicholas Fusco, Megan Roach, Kristan Roach, Matthew Roach; and 5 great grandchildren Cassidy Robinson, Christopher Robinson, Colin Robinson, Aubrey Fusco and Olivia Fusco.

Marge battled things throughout her life, but her smile and attitude would never show it. She conquered ovarian cancer like the warrior she was.

Marge loved spending time with her family, especially her grandchildren, who were the highlight of her life. On days where she could spend with her grandchildren and their dogs, Marge could not be happier. Marge was always quick to say how proud she was of someone, especially her grandchildren.

She also loved spending time with those in the close knit community of The Hamptons in Florida where lifelong friends were made.

Marge enjoyed the challenge of a good game night, where she would inevitably always win, especially in Scrabble or Rummy.

A Celebration of Life will be held at the Paddock Estates Clubhouse Friday, July 22 from 1 p.m. - 6 p.m. The Paddock Estates are located at 1 Paddock Ln, Boxborough, MA 01719.

Cards of condolences can be addressed to Bob Collogan at 421 Bolton St., Marlborough, MA 01752.
