Margaret enjoyed Sunday afternoon roller skating with her friends throughout her high school days. After graduating from Shrewsbury High School, she was introduced to the love of her life, Robert Tuttle by her brothers who were also in the Navy with him. After dating for a short time, they married in April 1953, which was the beginning of a twenty years chapter in her life as a Navy wife. They moved several times throughout the country, while Robert served our nation. Upon their departure from military service, they settled in Worcester, where they remained in the same home for over fifty years.
Margaret worked as a Nurse’s Aide for over twenty years at Mill Hill Nursing Home in Worcester, before she retired. She was a member of the former Saint Charles Borromeo Church in Worcester. She enjoyed camping, traveling, knitting and sunbathing. She was an avid arm-chair shopper right up until the end.
Margaret’s family would like to extend a gracious “thank you” to her PCA, Lori, who took wonderful care of Margaret and kept her comfortable in her own home. They would also like to thank the JHC Hospice, for the compassion and caring shown to Margaret as she completed her life journey. As well as her lifelong friend Barbara who also stayed with her and family throughout.
