Margot E. Ivers, 69
Margot E. Ivers, age 69, of Marblehead, MA passed away on Wednesday, November 2, 2022 surrounded by her family after a two and a half year battle with esophageal and pancreatic cancers. She was the beloved wife of James Ivers with whom she shared 38 years of marriage.
Born in Chicago, IL, Margot was the daughter of the late John J. Enright and Patricia (Garvy) Enright Allen.
She was the devoted mother to Allison I. Bourque and her husband Ryan and Andrew Ivers and his wife Sara. She was also the cherished “Gram” to her 18-month old granddaughter. She was predeceased by her sisters Stella Demaret and Lynne Napolilli. She is survived by her siblings Dianne Guest and John J. Enright as well as many beloved nieces and nephews.
Margot grew up in Chicago, IL and graduated from Regina Dominican High School in 1971 and John Carroll University in Cleveland, OH in 1975. Being a foreign-language major with a passion for travel, she became a flight attendant with TWA where she met her husband and many wonderful life-long friends. She held various local administrative assistant positions over the years but was best known as the secretary to the principal at Marblehead High School for over 10 years.
Margot was an active volunteer within the Marblehead school system while her children were growing up. One of Margot’s greatest gifts was her devotion to her friendships. She maintained close life-long friendships with her JCU college girls, The Beach Club community, multiple tennis groups, book club friends and past coworkers, just to name a few. She was described as a “warrior” by her medical team at Massachusetts General Hospital Cancer Center and was a favorite patient to the nurses on Ellison 16. Despite her diagnosis and multiple complications, Margot was determined to meet her granddaughter and walk down the aisle at her daughter, Allison’s wedding on June 19, 2022. Both wishes were granted with many thanks to her MGH care team and the never-ending support of her family and community of friends.
Visiting hours for Margot will be held Wednesday, November 9, 2022 from 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at Eustis & Cornell of Marblehead, 142 Elm Street. Her Funeral Mass will be held on Thursday, November 10, 2022 at 11:00 a.m. at Our Lady Star of the Sea Church, 85 Atlantic Ave, Marblehead.
