Obituary for Margaret Rita Gagne Mickalowski

Margaret Rita (Gagne) Mickalowski of Stratford passed away on August 12, 2017 at the age of 88. Born in Norwalk on May 31, 1929, she was the daughter of the late Philippe and Aurora Gagne, who emigrated from Quebec with her older brother, the late Peter Gagne, two years before Marge was born.

Marge graduated from Norwalk High School in 1948. She married Leo Mickalowski in 1950, and they shared their lives together for more than 48 years, until his death in 1998.

She was employed as a secretary for the Norwalk Board of Education for 28 years, and retired in 1996. Marge was an avid reader, especially of mystery novels, and enjoyed reading French and doing cross-word puzzles. She also loved collecting elephant statues and figurines. She was a devoted daughter, wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. Marge's family always came first. She donated to numerous charities. She was a strong woman, with quite a sense of humor.

Marge and Leo loved lighthouses and enjoyed driving up to Maine for long weekends to see many of them. She stayed right by Leo’s side during his years of declining health. He was the love of her life.

In addition to her parents, husband and brother, she was preceded in death by her youngest daughter Linda Marhoeffer and one granddaughter, Torie Stratford. She is survived by her son, Gary Mickalowski and his wife Debbie LaFaucci (Winterport, ME), her son, Bruce Mickalowski and his partner Bea Huckabee (Norwalk) and her daughter, Nancy McDonald and her husband Peter (Monroe).
