A funeral service for Margery A. Perrow Papile, 83, will be held Saturday at 10 a.m. in Bolea-Buonfiglio Funeral Home, 116 Franklin St., Quincy.
Mrs. Papile died April 19 at Milton Hospital, surrounded by her loving children and grandchildren.
Along with nine siblings, she was born to Alan and Arletta (Nickerson) Perrow and raised in Weymouth, but built most of her life in Quincy with her husband of 64 years, James P. Papile.
Mrs. Papile attended Weymouth schools and was very athletic in her younger years, especially at bowling where she held many individual awards. She enjoyed all sports, especially following all the Boston professional teams with her husband, “Jimmy.” She was excellent at playing Scrabble and found it extremely difficult finding challengers to her expertise. People meeting or friendly with her could attest to her profound sense of humor and her ability to befriend people in all walks of life.
Her interest in music was very unique, encompassing opera, country western, and pop music of her generation. Her interests in them were strong; she could quote the names of great opera stars going back many years and their most famous and not so famous arias. Her interest in country western and pop were also as legitimate.
Mrs. Papile’s most ardent affection and interest was in family. Further than the love and interest she felt for her own children, the appreciation, interest and deep affection she had for her grandchildren was immeasurable. Their visits with were with deep affection and were extremely enjoyable to her.
She leaves behind her husband of 64 years, James P. Papile; daughters Jane M. Battaglia and her husband James of Blackstone and Julie A. McCormack and her husband Stephen of Quincy; and her son Dr. Christopher J. Papile and his wife Tuana of Arlington. She was “Grannie” to five grandchildren, whom she loved very much and was very attentive to: Anthony Battaglia, Melissa E. Papile, and Stephen J., Jordan N., and Bryan P. McCormack. She also leaves two sisters, Judith Corcoran of Stoughton and Dianne Faubert of Quincy, both of whom she shared luncheon visits with in her later years, and brothers Robert of OH and Steven of Harwich. She was the sister of the late Barbara Gonsales, Jeanne Hodgdon and Douglas, John and David Perrow.
Visiting hours are tomorrow (Friday) 4-8 p.m. in the funeral home.
Interment at Pine Hill Cemetery, Quincy.
