Margaret L. Taros (McNamara), a long-time resident of Milton, passed away peacefully on June 10th at The Springs at Lake Pointe Woods in Sarasota, Florida.
Margaret was the beloved wife of the late Albert V. Taros. She was the devoted Mother of Karin T. Antin, Esq., and her husband Roger, of Chappaqua, New York, and of Erik A. Taros, and his wife Amy, of Swampscott. She was the cherished Grandmother of Reid Antin of Los Angeles, California and Trent Taros of Worcester. Margaret was predeceased by all of her siblings: Maurica Nugent, Alice Gannon, Anne Parent, Marie Norris, Elsa Erickson, and Martin McNamara. She is survived by many nieces and nephews, all of whom she loved dearly.
Born and raised in Charlestown, Margaret graduated from Brighton High School in 1942. She was proudly crowned “Miss Dorchester” in 1943. She and her husband, Albert, lived most of their life in Milton, where they raised their children. Margaret enjoyed working for many years throughout her life as a bookkeeper at various businesses in the area. In particular, she enjoyed working for the late Malcolm Kent in the Milton Building Department.
Margaret loved cooking and she also loved to sew – often spending days in her sewing room in Milton creating her own designs. She was a wonderful dancer and spent many Saturday nights with her equally talented husband, Albert, dancing with her friends and family at the Viking Club in Braintree, where she was a life-long member. She and her husband were also life-long members of the Savin Hill Yacht Club, where they enjoyed many friendships with fellow members.
Margaret loved to travel – especially to Florida. She spent many wonderful summers on Cape Cod with friends and family. Margaret loved everything beautiful in life. May she rest in a very well-deserved peace.
