Margaret Ellen O'Rourke Obituary
PORTSMOUTH - Margaret Ellen O'Rourke, 75, of Portsmouth, N.H., died on Tuesday, March 10, 2020, after a two year battle with cancer. She was born on Flag Day, 1944, in Westfield, Mass.

Margaret was a graduate of St Marys, UMASS-Amherst (Summa Cum Laude) and Boston College Graduate School of Social Work (MSW). During her career, she held various administrative positions in Franklin County, Seattle, Boston, and Denver.

Margaret is survived by her loving husband, Jay Feeney, of 29 years (and a friend for 61); her daughter Meghan of Amherst, Mass.; her grandchildren Sean and Sarah Towse; and her stepson Brendan Feeney and his family of Littleton, Colo.

She delighted in each sunrise and sunset, and was an avid swimmer, skier, gardener, and reader. She was a volunteer for many years at the Portsmouth Music Hall, and a strong supporter of Al-Anon, which helped her through some of her pain and doubt. She and Jay traveled extensively, seeing many rainbows amid the ruins and ancient churches. It all made for a good life. She will be missed.
