Marilyn B. Fitzgibbon, 82, of Hampton, N.H., formerly of Braintree, died with her loving family by her side on Saturday, April 19, 2014 at the Exeter Hospital after a brief illness. Marilyn was born on Aug. 18, 1931 in Boston, a daughter of the late Malcolm and Rita (Reardon) Morrison. She was raised in Brookline and was a graduate of Brookline High. After attending secretarial school, she went to work for the Navy at the shipyard in South Boston. She met the love of her life and future husband, Joseph W. Fitzgibbon while at a local dance. The couple married in 1953, lived in Dorchester, and settled in Braintree to raise their six children. She was a full time Mom and taking care of her family was always the most important part of her life. Marilyn worked for many years as an information operator for New England Telephone. She moved to Hampton in the early 1990s after the death of her husband so she could be near family. Marilyn was a faithful communicant at Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal Church and a member of the Stephen Ministry. She also did volunteer work at the Exeter Hospital, liked to work out and stay fit at the Positive Steps Fitness Center in North Hampton and especially loved her long walks on the beach. Family members include her daughters, Mary Hurley of Hampton, Linda Carter of Hampton and Teresa F. Zuckerman and her husband Craig of Sudbury; her sons, Joseph W. Fitzgibbon, Jr and his wife Tracey of Braintree and Stephen Fitzgibbon and Michael Fitzgibbon of New Mexico; her grandchildren, Rachel and Joseph Fitzgibbon, III, Jeanine and Phillip Hurley, Sarah Carter and Madelyn and Shelley Zuckerman; and her sisters, Carolyn Goblick of Acton and Katheryn Boyle of Newton. She also leaves several nieces, nephews and many dear friends.
