Obituary for Mary Margaret DeMarco (Fitzgerald)

Mary M. (Fitzgerald) DeMarco, 84, of Marco Island, Florida and Wells Beach, Maine and formerly of Laconia, New Hampshire, passed away on January 6, 2019. Mary (Chickie) was raised in North Adams, Massachusetts where she met and married the love of her life, Patrick DeMarco. She graduated from the Elms College with a bachelor’s degree, taught Elementary School for years and retired from teaching at Woodland Heights Elementary School in Laconia, NH. Mary loved spending time at the beach, treasured her family and many friends, and her love of travel took her to dozens of countries around the world.

Mary combined her love of family, friends, and travel in many of her adventures. Mary and her husband, Patrick, traveled throughout the United States, Europe, England, Bermuda, the Caribbean, Mexico, Hong Kong and China. She loved to travel with her family; spending time backpacking through Eastern Europe, touring Ireland and the Caribbean, exploring Mexico, Italy and Spain and visiting her grandchildren in Costa Rica, Arizona and New England. She especially enjoyed cruising and took many trips on an Irish-themed Caribbean adventure, always returning with new music and stories to share and looking forward to her next trip.

Mary also loved the theater; she held seasonal tickets to theater in Naples, FL and Ogunquit, ME and enjoyed attending both Broadway and Off-Broadway shows as well as productions abroad.
Mary was active in her community and church wherever she went. She was a member of the Holy Spirit Parish in Wells, Maine, and the San Marco Catholic Church in Marco Island, Fla and served as a Eucharistic Minister until her passing.

She was predeceased by her husband of thirty-seven years, Patrick DeMarco and her beloved son Christopher DeMarco. She leaves behind five children, Kim Woodford and husband David of Leominster, MA; Patrick DeMarco and wife Heather of San Tan Valley, AZ; Kevin DeMarco and wife Cheryl of Wells, ME; Kristin Shaw and husband Jeff of Epping, NH; and James DeMarco and his partner Francisco (Paco) Navarrete from Guadalajara, Mexico. She is also survived by her grandchildren, Sydney and Aaron Woodford, Angelina, Sofia, Juliana and John-Patrick DeMarco and two step-grandchildren Nichole and C.J. Senarosa.

Visiting hours will be held on Friday, Jan. 11 from 5-7 p.m. at the Bibber Memorial Chapel, 111 Chapel Rd, Wells, Maine. A mass of Christian Burial will be held at 11AM, Saturday Jan. 12 at St. Mary’s Catholic Church, 236 Eldridge Rd, Wells, Maine.
