Marjory J. Goodwin, age 89, passed away peacefully on Tuesday, September 26, 2023, at her home in Walpole, Massachusetts. Born in Boston, Massachusetts on November 20, 1933, she was the daughter of the late Harry and Annie (Neilson) Weston. Marge was raised in Dedham, Massachusetts, where she graduated from Dedham High School with the Class of 1951.
Marge married her beloved husband, Richard S. Goodwin, on October 10, 1952, in her hometown of Dedham. Following Richard's discharge from the Army, the young couple initially made their home together in Westwood, Massachusetts, before settling in Walpole in 1965. Three years later, Marge began her career with the Town of Walpole, working in the cafeteria at Walpole High School. After several years at the high school, Marge transferred to the cafeteria at Fisher Elementary School and went on to retire in 2011, after many years of dedicated service to her students. In her retirement, Marge picked up a part-time position at Stop and Shop in Walpole, working in the Seafood Department.
Throughout her life, Marge enjoyed tending to the flowers and plants around her home, ensuring her yard and house looked beautiful.

Most of all, Marge was a social butterfly, who looked forward to getting out and seeing her friends and acquaintances around town.
