North Andover, MA — Marjorie A. (Foster) Raymond, passed away peacefully on Thursday, November 14, 2013, at the Sutton Hill Center in North Andover after a period of declining health. Marjorie was born on February 20th, 1932, to Kenneth and Margaret (Burke) Foster in Brockton, MA. She was educated at Saint John School in Canton, MA and Dean College in Franklin, MA where she earned an A.S. degree in Business.
Marjorie worked as an Accounting and Finance professional for several companies and eventually retired in 1994 from Ciba Corning Diagnostics in Walpole, MA after 30 years of continuous service.
Marjorie lived in eastern Massachusetts her entire adult life moving from Franklin to the Merrimack Valley to be closer to her children in 1998. The greatest joy of her life was attending to her “girls,” granddaughters, Libby and Maggie. Most days she could be found picking them up from school and taking them to and from their various activities.
She had a lifelong passion for arts and crafts including painting and quilting. Marjorie was a member of several quilting groups over the years including the Merrimack Valley Quilters in Haverhill. In retirement, she spent more than 25 summers at Pinewood Lodge in Plymouth with family and friends as a seasonal camper.

Raymond and his wife, Mary, of North Andover; her granddaughters, Elizabeth (Libby) Raymond and Margaret (Maggie) Raymond, also of North Andover; her sisters-in-law, Joanie Foster of Whitman, MA and Anne Thomas of Elkton, MD and numerous nieces and nephews throughout Massachusetts, Maryland and Delaware.
