Marguerite Eleanor (Nicholas) Cocco, age 92, of Sudbury, passed away peacefully on Friday, December 23, 2022.
Margie was born in Brighton, Massachusetts on September 17, 1930, the daughter of the late Victor and Carmela (Umbro) Nicholas. She was raised and educated in Brighton, completing secretarial school after high school.
Margie married Thomas Cocco in 1954. The couple settled in Maynard, MA, and shortly afterward founded the Thomas A. Cocco Insurance Agency, located in downtown Maynard. Margie and Thomas ran the business together until his passing in 1977. Margie continued running the agency until her retirement at age 79, in 2009.
Margie married Christopher Cutaia in 1981, residing in Sudbury, MA, until his death in 2015.
Family was of great importance to Margie. She loved orchestrating family events at her house, and was especially generous with her grandsons and brothers that needed extra support. Chacha, her beloved dog, was lavishly spoiled over the years, becoming a very protective best friend. Margie loved to dance, attend musical shows, visit Foxwoods, go out to eat, and watch Sean Hannity!
Margie is survived by her three daughters, Deborah Watterson of Providence, RI; Carolyn Cocco and husband Arthur Romania of Wayland, MA; Rebecca Cocco and husband David Rubenstein of Los Angeles, CA; her siblings, Richard Nicholas of Mexico; Louis Nicholas and wife Patricia of Baltimore, MD; her grandchildren, Gabriel, Shane, Alex and Sam; and her niece, Valerie Cochrane. She was predeceased by her brother Joe Nicholas; and grandchildren, Sebastian and Zachary.
