Margaret B. Kasprzak

June 26, 1935 — June 6, 2022

St. Marys

 

We celebrate the life and mourn the death of our beloved Margaret B. Kasprzak, who passed away Monday, June 6, 2022 at the age of 86.

She was born June 26, 1935, in Boston, MA; the daughter of Albert and Agnes (Sargent) Kenney.  Margaret lived in Boston for 40 years before moving to Maine at great personal sacrifice for the love and benefit of her children in 1976. Margie and her husband Adam raised their family and built their legacy of love on Sunset Hill in tiny Palmyra, Maine for the next 45 years.  Margaret tirelessly labored daily in the raising of 8 children. Kissing every booboo, washing every dirty sock, and putting every ounce of herself into raising them into the incredible, beautiful, parents they would all become. 

Margaret and Adam Nicholas Kasprzak were united in marriage in Roxbury, MA on June 19, 1955 and would spend the next 55 years deeply in love until his untimely death on July 9, 2009. Margaret is also preceded in death by her daughter Margie, her grandson Dennis, great granddaughter Katherine, and daughter in law Tracy. 

Margaret went by many names. To her husband she was Marge, to her children she was Ma (insert Boston accent), to her grandchildren she was known affectionately as Nana. No matter what the relationship however, no matter how you knew her, you loved her and you liked her. Marge was a storyteller. She would share her wealth of wisdom with enthusiastic flair. Her laugh was utterly infectious and her angry glare would stop you in your tracks and turn you to stone. She lived as a devout Catholic. She prayed faithfully for every member of her unbelievably large family every single day; 8 children, 43 grandchildren, 80 great grandchildren, and 4 great-great grandchildren. She had an immeasurable affection for her faith. She woke and walked in the light of Christ. She battled demons that would make a hardened criminal cry. 

Margaret had many talents and skills but her math was on another level. She enjoyed it and made use of this passion once her children had grown. She worked for many years for "Lovley Investments" and was a critical asset whom they deeply appreciated.

By the Grace of God, she died Catholic in the embrace of Holy Mother Church and with her final benediction. As such we have good reason to hope for the salvation of her soul. Be that as it may, please please continue to pray for the repose of her soul as was her practice and her wish. 

She is survived by her children, Julie & Brian, Adam & Susan, Laure & David, Michael & Cindy, Thomas & Gaye, James & Jennifer, Paul & Karen and the aforementioned 127 children of lineage who all miss her desperately already.

We would like to make a very special mention of gratitude for Brian & Julie McCann with whom Margaret spent her final years. Their tender care and unshakeable perseverance in the care of Nana in their home was a true effort of selfless love that is appreciated by everyone. 

Requiem mass will be at 11:15 A.M., Tuesday, June 14, 2022, at Assumption Chapel.  A Rosary will be recited at 5:20 P.M. Monday, June 13, 2022 at the chapel.  Interment will be in Palmyra Village Cemetery, Palmyra, ME.  In lieu of flowers, Margaret wanted Masses offered up for the repose of her soul.  Piper Funeral Home is in charge of Kansas arrangements.
