Obituary for Delores Markt

Delores Markt
GRAFTON: Delores I. (Serra) Markt, 85, of Grafton, MA, passed away peacefully at her home on Friday, March 17, 2017, surrounded by her loving family following a brief illness. She is survived by her seven children Sandra Markt-Reardon and her husband Michael of Falmouth, Denise Markt of Whitinsville, Donna Rana of Sutton, Judy (Noel) Hendricks and her husband Greg of Sutton, Donald Markt, Jr. and his wife Kristina of Grafton, Jean Kimball and her husband Michael of Auburn, NH and David Markt of Whitinsville. She was the proud and loving grandmother of seventeen grandchildren Jarrod Fowler, Patrick Reardon, Michael Reardon and his husband Vincent, Andrew Markt and his wife Erin, Rachel and Michelle Dorval, Earle Fleming IV, Jenna (Fleming) Mercier and her husband Chris, Michelle (Noel) Granger and her husband John, Dakota Motto, Zachary Markt, David Markt, Jr., Jacob Markt, Alisa Labowitch and her husband Ben, Kevin Hendricks and his wife Ashley and Laura Lambert and her husband Aaron. She was predeceased by her grandson Frankie Noel III. She also leaves ten precious great-grandchildren Riley and Aidan Markt, Conor O’Neil, Alivia Ruggieri, JJ, Gavin, and Teagan Granger, Jack and Emma Labowitch and Everett Hendricks and her nephews Harold and Mark Davis. She was also predeceased by her former husband, Donald Markt, Sr. and her sister Roberta (Bobbi) Davis.
Delores was born on April 11, 1931, in Manhattan, NY, the daughter of the late Michael A. and Irene (Robarge) Serra. She grew up in New York, NY and Worcester, MA. Delores graduated from Commerce High School in Worcester, MA in 1949. Then attended the Salter School and became a Medical Secretary before leaving work in order to dedicate her full time to being a mother, which was her proudest accomplishment. After her children were in school, she worked as a Keypunch Operator for Massachusetts Electric and later established and served as the librarian for the Engineering Research Library at Yankee Atomic Electric Company until her retirement in 1993. Mrs. Markt was a resident of Grafton for over 50 years. Her greatest joy was being with her grand and great-grandchildren who affectionately called her Memere (aka “the white flash”). She was always more concerned for the well-being of her family and friends, than she was for her own. She was a devoted mother, grandmother and great-grandmother and a true and loyal friend. Delores had a passion and knack for crocheting and all types of crafts and created many beautiful and personalized gifts for family and friends. She was also an avid Jeopardy fan.

Following cremation, all are welcome to gather with Delores’ family for a memorial calling hour on Saturday, March 25th from 1pm to 2pm at Roney Funeral Home 152 Worcester St. N. Grafton, MA 01536. Final services and burial will be private. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to the Francis “Frankie” Noel III Memorial Scholarship c/o Grafton Town Clerk 30 Providence Road Grafton, MA 01519.
