MILLBURY — Marie E. Jurgelonis went home to the Lord on January 9, 2021, after suffering complications due to COVID-19. She passed on at UMASS Memorial Medical Center in Worcester.
Born on March 18, 1954 to Joseph J. and Helen A. (Markunas) Jurgelonis, she grew up in Millbury, attending town schools and graduated from Millbury Memorial High School. She leaves her brothers, Rev. Joseph J. Jurgelonis, Jr., retired pastor for the Diocese of Worcester and Paul J. Jurgelonis with whom she resided, at the family home in Millbury.
Marie lived a simple life, enjoying going out to eat, watching humming birds in the garden and especially walking with her canine companions, currently her Labrador Retriever Sophie, whom she nicknamed “Hungry”.
Her last job before retiring for health reasons was at Stop-and-Shop in North Grafton where as she often said, “Not everyone enjoys food shopping, but I would try to lighten their burden”.
Due to the Covid-19 Pandemic, service will be held at the convenience of her family.
