Once in a life time, if you are Lucky, an Angel crosses your path, and we, the children of Margaret G. Rose
were BLESSED to call that Angel, "Mom." It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of our
dear, brave mother, Margaret G. Rose who died December 15, 2018.
Margaret was born in Portland on December 18th, 1937 to Marie Gomes and Catino Fernandez. She
graduated from Cathedral HS, where her fervent faith was formulated and that faith would carry her
through many losses of her life, including her cherished child, Tara Ann, yet she never complained. One
of her first jobs was candy striper at Mercy Hospital stayed there for 20 years as Ward Clerk, Moved to
Wareham started her family, and returned to Maine to raise her children as single parent with all the
loving support ofher sister's and mother.
The joys of Margaret's life, aside from her knitting, cooking and jewelry making, were her loving family
and friends who adored her!
