Margaret “Meg” Fraser, 65, a lifelong resident of Littleton passed away on December 14th at Emerson Hospital surrounded by family after a sudden illness. She was a beloved wife, mother, and grandmother.
Meg was born in Concord, MA on March 3, 1957 to Wilfred Fraser and the late, Lee C. Travers Brodley. She attended Julie Country Day School in Leominster as a child, continued her education at Littleton Public Schools and graduated from Conval Regional High School in Peterborough, NH due to her family relocating. Shortly after, she returned to the town of Littleton to start and raise her own family.
Meg had a very strong work ethic and a big heart. While attending high school, she worked alongside her mother at Crotchet Mountain assisting children with special needs. She was quick to learn and liked to keep busy. She enjoyed donating her time when she could, most recently volunteering at the Meals on Wheels program for the town’s Senior citizens. For the past 27 years she worked as an Operations Assistant at the Littleton Light and Water Department. She was devoted to her job and a valuable member of the department. She enjoyed her role and being a part of the Littleton community.
She enjoyed experimenting with her vegetable garden, reading, cooking, a good family game and lending a hand. However, she most enjoyed spending time with her family and friends and being in the company of those with a good sense of humor (as she could be quite witty and sarcastic herself). She dearly missed her mother, Lee, who she spent a lot of time tending to in the remaining years of her life. She would visit her often at the Life Care Center, where she would not only spend quality time with her mother but would extend that same kindness, compassion & many sweet gestures to other senior residents she knew from growing up in town.
She loved when she had the opportunity to visit with her father and valued the time they could spend together as well, especially taking trips to the coast of Portsmouth, New Hampshire. Meg loved the ocean and had a lot of special memories of the family home on White Horse Beach. She cherished the time she spent there as a child with her grandparents and the bond that they had.
Meg lovingly cared for many dogs throughout her life, especially golden retrievers. She had fond memories of her childhood dog, Perfy, a standard poodle that always brought a smile to her face.
Meg was a caring person and always willing to help-out. She was a friend to many and will be greatly missed.
She leaves her husband of 31 years, Mark Romilly, of Littleton, two daughters Rachael Wayland of Weymouth and Jacqueline Wayland and her husband Matt Leach of Lancaster; her grandchildren who brought her much joy Nicholas, Jacob and Cara; and her siblings Michael Fraser & his wife Liesl of Sagamore, MA, Eileen Holman & her husband Gary of New Ipswich, NH, Rose Bangs & her husband Teddy of Merrimack, NH, Wilfred Fraser, Jr. of Fredericton, NB; many nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her mother Lee C. Brodley, stepfather Raymond Brodley, brother Raymond Brodley, Jr. and brother Richard Pacsay.
Family and friends will gather to honor and remember Meg for a period of visitation from 3:00pm to until 6:00pm on Tuesday December 27, 2022 in the Badger Funeral Home, 347 King Street, Littleton. A service will follow at 6:00pm. Interment will be privately held at Westlawn Cemetery, Littleton, MA at a later time.
