Biographical information / Informations biographiques

Mary spent all of her life in the neighborhood where she was born and raised. Mrs. Legere was proud to say she was a graduate of the Machon Elementary School, entering shortly after it opened. She was followed by her children and grandchildren as was celebrated at the closing ceremonies of Machon School last spring, citing three generations of her family attending Machon. She continued her schooling in Swampscott, graduating Swampscott High School, Class of 1947. After graduation, Mrs. Legere had worked at the Marshmallow Fluff plant as well as the Champion Lamp Company, both of Lynn. Mrs. Legere met her husband of 53 years, J. Arthur Legere, where she worked at Lollipop Lane, in Swampscott. They were married in Holy Family Church on September 12, 1953. Together they built a home in the Swampscott neighborhood where she grew up and raised four children, Arthur Frederick “Ricky”, David James, Lisa Marie, and Denise Jean. All of whom after marrying, stayed in the neighborhood moving within a few streets of their parents home, to raise their families, completing three generations. During her life there, Mrs. Legere was a member of the Machon School PTA, a former Machon School Aide, a member of the Woman’s Group of Saint John the Baptist Club, a Pack 56 Cub Scout Troop leader and Den Mother, and Brownie Troop Leader. She was a communicant of the Holy Family Church, and enjoyed her times working with her sisters at the church’s annual Festa Italiana. Mrs. Legere was innovative in her many hobbies. In her teens, she not only developed and printed her own film, she made her own cameras. In an era of “black and white” film, she developed her own way of colorizing her prints. She loved drawing and would often spend time conveying her talents to her children and then to her grandchildren. Mary loved to cook. Whether it was Sicilian pizza, pasta, meatballs and sauce, pizzeles, or one of her many beautiful birthday cakes, all of the family gatherings revolved around Mary’s good food. Most recently, she and her husband Arthur took the whole family to Disney World, creating memories for their children and grandchildren to enjoy for many years to come.

Mrs. Mary Legere was from a time in which men and women are characterized as the “Greatest Generation”. She was a woman who possessed a remarkable blend of talents which she has nurtured and passed on to her children. Mary Lucy Legere was a wife, mother, grandmother, mentor, friend, artist, a great cook, and a lady who will surely be missed.2
