Obituary for Elizabeth M. Legare
Elizabeth M. (Duffy) Legare, 84, formerly of Seekonk, passed away peacefully surrounded by her family on Monday, May 10. Born in Pawtucket, Beth was the daughter of Edward J. And Elizabeth (O’Neill) Duffy. She was married to the late Robert K. Legare for nearly 50 years until his passing in 2007. She leaves her three beloved children, Edward J. (Ned) Legare and his wife Beth (Alger) of Dover, MA, Robert D. Legare and his wife Maura (Toole) of East Greenwich and Elizabeth Susan Legare with whom she lived and enjoyed many years of companionship and tender care.
She was the proud grandmother of 7 grandchildren including Sarah Paine (Dave), Patrick (Kylie), Mark (Kaila), Caroline, Robert, Daniel and Mae Legare. She was thrilled to have become a great-grandmother to Henry, Emily, Jackson and Anabella.
Educated by the Sisters of the Sacred Heart, to whom she was fiercely devoted, Beth graduated from Elmhurst Academy and Newton College of the Sacred Heart. She also attained a Masters’ Degree in Reading from Rhode Island College. She taught in the Seekonk school system for over 35 years and volunteered at Ronald McDonald House for 14 years. Her warmth, kindness to all, deep faith and love of her family and friends were evident to all who were lucky enough to know her. She will be sorely missed. The family wishes to thank the residents of the Stratford Arms apartments in Riverside for their abiding friendship and kindness over the past several years.
