Jean L Marenghi (Gallagher) 79

Jean was born in 1944 and grew up in Framingham,  MA. After high school, she married the love of her life, John Marenghi. John and Jean had their only child Pamela and soon after moved to Franklin, MA. Her years there were full of fun, laughter and the camaraderie of her neighbors, family and friends. Jean worked for several organizations during this chapter of her life and was very successful in sales. She and John later purchased a summer home in Dennis, MA, where they spent weekends and summers on Cape Cod. Upon retirement, they followed the warm weather south to Port Charlotte, FL, and eventually found their permanent home in Venice, FL.

Jean loved life and was often the life of the party. She will be remembered by her big smile and her ability to make others laugh, no matter what it took. She had a big heart, positive attitude and compassion for others. Jean was an excellent cook and enjoyed entertaining and preparing gourmet meals for her friends and family. She adored her granddogs and loved doggie sitting for extended periods of time. Her other interests included travel, boating, biking and picnics with her husband and granddogs.
