We are deeply sorry for your loss - the staff at MacDonald Rockwell & MacDonald
Marjorie Mary Gorman, age 76, died at Pine Rock Manor in Warner, NH on July 30th, 2022.
Born and raised in Cambridge, MA, daughter of Gertrude (Finnegan) and Arthur Gorman, she was predeceased by her only sister, Lynda Gorman-Henderson of Portsmouth, NH.
She graduated from Cambridge High and Latin School, then earned both undergraduate and graduate degrees from Boston State University. Marjorie taught second grade for over 30 years at Powder House School in Somerville, MA, and retired in 2004 to her family’s summer home in Bristol, NH.
Hobbies included quilting, knitting, crafts, music, and travel. She especially enjoyed participating in summer craft fairs in the Newfound region; her favorites being Hebron, Alexandria, and Danbury. She also volunteered at the annual Tapply-Thompson Community Center Santa’s Village in Bristol and was a member of the Danbury Grange.
Marjie loved retirement in NH, children, her grand niece and nephew Piper and Silas, and her many cousins and their children and grandchildren in SC, NH, GA, CA, and MA. Her only pet ever was her beloved West Highland Terrier, Angus McNutt.
She is survived by her niece Pia (Henderson) Bloom, husband, Aaron, and children, Silas and Piper of Mahtomedi, MN; her brother-in-law, Richard Henderson and wife Debra of Stratham, NH; cousin Jack O’Brien and wife, Linda of Summerville, SC and Bristol, NH; cousin Barbara Finnegan of Attleboro, MA; and Cousin Richard Finnegan and wife Kathleen of St. Augustine, FL.
Marjie will be sorely missed.
The family would like to thank Golden Crest Assisted Living in Franklin, NH; Pine Rock Manor in Warner; NH; Helen O’Brien; and Bristol friends and neighbors.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Marjie’s memory to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
A private burial will be held in Mt. Auburn Cemetery, Cambridge, MA.
