Obituary for Marguerite M. (Pelletier) Braska

Marguerite M. (Pelletier) Braska, 90, of Ludlow, passed away peacefully on November 7, 2023 surrounded by her loving family. Born in Ludlow, daughter of the late Joseph and Alice (Charland) Pelletier, she grew up in Indian Orchard and was a graduate of Cathedral High School. She raised her family in Springfield and had a long career at Monarch Life Insurance Company from where she retired. Marguerite was a woman of strong faith and a communicant of St. Elizabeth Parish in Ludlow. She was an avid reader and enjoyed her puzzle books, making puzzles, playing family card games, her frequent lunch outings and taking annual trips to Ogunquit, ME; but her greatest joy in life was spending time with her family. She had a great sense of humor and a quick wit. A special thanks to the Gendreau family who shared weekly outings with our mom, which she so treasured. She will forever be remembered as a woman of Godly character who showed unconditional love to all. Her patience and perseverance through adversity taught us all so much. Marguerite was the beloved wife of the late Robert R. Braska who predeceased her in 2017; a loving mother to Robert Braska and wife Nora of Springfield, Dianne Herman and husband Albert of Phoenix, AZ and her late husband Donald Garden, David Braska and wife Lee of Feeding Hills, Anne Goncalves and husband Nundi of Ludlow with whom she lived, and the late Jeannine Pelletier and her widower Albert of Fitzwilliam, NH; a dear sister to Lucille Gendreau, Pauline Sotiropoulos, and the late Roger Pelletier; a cherished grandmother of 18 and great-grandmother of 27; and also leaves many loving extended family members and dear friends. Family and friends may call on Tuesday evening, November 14th from 4-7 PM at Ludlow Funeral Home. Funeral services for Marguerite will be on November 15, 2023 at 9:00am from Ludlow Funeral Home followed by a Liturgy of Christian Burial at 10:00am at St. Elizabeth Parish followed by burial in St. Aloysius Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Marguerite’s memory to Shriners Hospital for Children 516 Carew St. Springfield, Ma. 01104
