Marjorie (Ragucci) Baldassarre, 97 years, life-long resident of Everett, died May 9, 2019 at Artis Senior Living of Reading, MA. Daughter of the late Alfonso and Virginia Ragucci, she was predeceased by siblings Dr. Antoinette, Charles and Robert Ragucci. She was married for 39 years to the love of her life, Ralph Baldassarre. Marjorie was a graduate of Everett High School and was employed by BayBank and Everett Public Schools.

Marjorie was an active member of her community serving as Trustee of the Parlin Memorial Library, Board Member of the Mystic Valley Elder Services, Treasurer of the Everett Garden Club and one of the founding members of the Village Seniors.

The center of Marjorie’s home was her kitchen. She loved to cook for her family and guests, especially Sunday dinners of pasta gravy and meatballs. Her dining room table was the site of many lively discussions, and much warmth, laughter, and love.

Marjorie was immensely proud of her family. She was a loving wife, mother, and matriarch and she was loved by all, especially her children, Ralph (Cathy) Baldassarre, Dianne (Dennis) Stratton, Linda (Charles) Hannon, Angela (Richard) Jervey, John (Joyce) Baldassarre. Gram will be dearly missed by her grandchildren Christopher (Amy) Hannon, Matthew Baldassarre, Suzanne (John) Poyant, Dr. Lauren Baldassarre (Dr. Marcelo Cassini), Robert (Katie) Ouellette, Benjamin Jervey (Laurie Beyranevand), Justin and Peter Baldassarre and ten great-grandchildren. She is also survived by many nephews, nieces, and dear friends. All have learned through her example to face whatever life brings with dignity and grace. She leaves them with many beautiful memories.
