Marjorie Ann (Glover) Verre, born in Dorchester and proudly raised in the D Street public housing project, formerly located at the corner of D Street and West Broadway, in South Boston. Marjorie graduated from Cardinal Cushing High School located in South Boston and went on to work for Boston Edison after graduation. Marjorie met her husband Mike on White Horse Beach in Manomet and would eventually settle in downtown Plymouth and raised a family.
Marjorie was survived by her two sons, Michael Daniel Verre and his fiancé Sandra, and Marc Jude Verre, both of Plymouth. She also leaves behind her granddaughter, Madison. Marjorie was predeceased by her loving husband, Bernard “Mikey” Verre, who passed in Sept 1998. Marjorie was also preceded in death by her pre-adolescent sister Joanne Glover, and mother Florence (Laws) Glover.
Marjorie was retired from the State of MA, Division of Employment Security, where she worked for 25 years. In retirement, Marjorie was an active volunteer giving back to the community; always on the go, with an overflowing to-do calendar. Marjorie enjoyed volunteering at the Catholic Charities Thrift Store, the Plymouth Public Library, the Jordan Hospital Blood Drives, and the Plymouth Council on Aging, to name a few local organizations. Marjorie was also actively involved in the St. Peters Women’s League as well as the Plymouth Woman’s Club, serving as the Treasurer of the later for some time.
Marjorie enjoyed reading her daily newspaper while relaxing and watching television in the evenings. Marjorie was an avid fan of all the Boston Sports teams, and especially enjoyed watching the Red Sox and Patriots games. Marjorie was quick-witted and blessed with a great sense of humor. Marjorie was always up for the challenge of some back-and-forth banter with her sons as well as her son’s friends – always resulting in great laughter and smiles for all.
