Margery Teggi

Margery attended schools in Great Barrington and was a graduate of Searles High School (1945) and Berkshire Business School. She was the office manager for Home Gas prior to having her children. She returned to the work force as an administrative executive for the Great Barrington Housing Authority. Margery worked for the Berkshire Hills Regional School District at Monument Mountain Regional High School for many years. She enjoyed working with the students and the teachers.

Margery’s interest largely centered around her family and friends here and in Boynton Beach, Florida. She enjoyed her “snowbird trips” to her Florida home right up until two years ago. She was a kind and loving woman whose generosity knew no bounds.

Margery is survived by her four children: Patricia (Brian) Gormley, Thomas (Barbara) Teggi, Mark (Valerie) Teggi and Jack Teggi; eight grandchildren: Brianne (Fred), Thomas, Jill (Keith), Courtney, Bridget, Robert, Mark (Amber), and Theresa (Austin); and two great-grandchildren: Nolan and Aubree. Margery was predeceased by her husband, Thomas Teggi. They were married Oct. 6, 1951, and shared a wonderful 61 years of marriage.

Services and burial will be private. The family requests that donations in Margery’s memory be made to either Dana Farber Cancer Institute or the Southern Berkshire Ambulance Service, both in care of the Birches-Roy Funeral Home, 33 South St., Great Barrington, MA 01230.
