Marjorie R. Wallace Obituary
Marjorie R. Wallace, 74, of Cotuit, 30 year resident of Sudbury and of Brookline, Saturday, December 6, 2014 peacefully and painlessly at Cape Cod Hospital. Born in Boston on May 9, 1940, she was the daughter of the late Jacob and Sara (Klier) Wallace. Marge was the beloved sister of Deborah E. Wallace of Lincoln and David H. and Jessie Wallace of Wellesley; the loving and devoted aunt of Nina Feldman and Sylvia Vasquez, Liza Feldman and Katie Crapulli, and Julia and James Rosenthal, all of Maynard; and the cherished and playful great aunt of William and Alexandra Rosenthal. Marge is also survived by a huge network of dear friends whom she thought of as family. Marge was raised in Brookline and graduated from Brookline High School with the class of 1958. She received Bachelor's and Master's Degrees from the University of Michigan. After college, Marge moved to N.Y. City and worked for a short time as a stage manager for a flamenco dance company and then as a marketing specialist at Young & Rubicam. After leaving New York, she settled in Sudbury in the early 1970's and worked as a financial analyst with MetLife Insurance Company for over 30 years until her retirement to Cotuit in 2007. Marge was extremely active in the Sudbury and Cotuit communities. She was a selectman in Sudbury for several years and served on its finance committee. In Cotuit she was a member of the board of directors of the Friends of the Cotuit Library and was also very active in the governing of its Fire and Police departments. Marge was an excellent athlete in her youth and an especially accomplished tennis player. She was an avid gardener and an unwavering fan of the University of Michigan football team and New England Patriots. She enjoyed her retirement by spending many happy hours on the beach in Cotuit, watching the boats, reading, and talking for hours with her friends. Funeral services will be held on Wednesday, December 10, at 11:00 AM at the Duckett - J. S.
