Lifelong Resident Margaret “Peg” Prescott passes at 90

Published on

The family of Margaret (Mulhern) Prescott, 90, of Hopkinton, sadly announces her passing on Monday, June 5, 2023, due to the ailments of old age. She passed away peacefully and was surrounded by her family.

Margaret “Peg” was born in Milton to J. Leo Mulhern and Margaret (Nickerson) Mulhern; sadly, her mother died in childbirth. Margaret was raised by her maternal aunt and uncle, Mary (Nickerson) and William Kirley of Hopkinton. She enjoyed a loving and joyful life living in the “big house” on Hayden Rowe and their farm. She grew up with three siblings: the late William Kirley, Jr. (Patricia), the late Marie Darling (Jerry), and her sister, the late Eleanor Gallagher (John). Margaret spent her entire life in Hopkinton and was a true “Hopkintonian.”

Margaret fell in love with a Natick man, Orren C. Prescott, Jr. They married in 1958 and started their family in Hopkinton. She was a homemaker until their four children were older, she then drove a bus for the Hopkinton school system. She held different office positions in the area until retiring early to help care for her growing grandchildren, who were her life and her passion. Her home was the gathering place for all family functions, and we will miss her love and guidance.

Loving mother of Mark Prescott, and his wife Cheryl, of Downers Grove, IL, Mary Lou Pagucci, and her partner Joseph Golter, of Greenland, NH, Michael Prescott, and his wife Mary, of Hopkinton, and Matthew Prescott, and his partner Stephanie Flood, of Wellesley.

She is also survived by the loves of her life, her seven grandchildren: Brian (Laura) Prescott, Samantha (Eric) Prescott, Jake (Michelle) Pagucci, Kyle Pagucci, Robby Prescott, and Daisy and Emma Prescott. She recently welcomed her first great-grandchild, William Prescott, in November. We are thankful she was able to see him regularly and spend time with him. She also leaves behind many nieces and nephews who loved their Aunt Peg.

Relatives and friends may visit on Tuesday, June 13, 2023, from 9:00 – 10:00 a.m. at the Callanan Cronin Funeral Home, 34 Church St. A funeral Mass will be celebrated at 10:30 a.m. in St. John the Evangelist Parish. Burial will follow in St. John’s Cemetery, Hopkinton.
