Margaret E. LaRocque Obituary
Margaret E. "Betty" LaRocque, 86, of Lee, passed away Thursday, February 8 at her home with her loving family of children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren and her cousin delivering into the waiting arms of Jesus and all of her family of angels, who went before her.

Margaret was born February 3, 1932 in Lee, the daughter of John E. and Margaret J. Tarmey Ford. She was raised and educated in Lee.

She married Francis B. LaRocque on August 2, 1952 and raised a huge family whose devotion and love for her never wavered and will shine on. Francis died June 17, 1993.

"Betty" as she liked to be called was dearly loved by her family and all those who knew her. She had an uncanny ability to laugh at herself in any situation. The lessons she taught of unconditional love will never be forgotten and will live on.

Betty leaves behind one son, Thomas LaRocque, of Lee; five daughters: Nancy Peetros and her husband Mark, of Lee, Christine Barber and her husband Dave, of Pittsfield, Pamela Rabbu and her husband Abdul, of Lee, Karen LaRocque and her husband Robert Jones, of Stockbridge, and Kim Rock of Rochester, NY. In addition she leaves behind 17 grandchildren, 12 great-grandchildren and her dear cousins LeeAnn Tarmey Sutton and David Tarmey.

Besides her husband, Betty was predeceased by two sons; Richard and Peter, her daughter, Kathy; her brother, John Ford, Jr. and her grandson, Thomas LaRocque, Jr.

SERVICES: Funeral Services for Betty will be held Thursday, February 15, 10AM at St. Mary's Church with a Liturgy of Christian Burial. Burial will follow in St. Mary's Cemetery. As per Betty's wishes there will be no calling hours.

In lieu of flowers those wishing may make a donation to HospiceCare of the Berkshires in care of Kelly Funeral Home, 3 Main St. Lee, MA 01238.
