Obituary

Margaret Virginia Queeley Greer entered this world on November 16, 1926 in Boston, Massachusetts. Margaret (Meg to her older brothers) was the second child born to Samuel W. Queeley and Ann Daley both of Montserrat, British West Indies.

Margaret graduated from Girls’ High School and completed an accounting program at Boston Clerical School, and also attended Fisher College. She started her career with the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. From there she went to Boston Public Schools where she held several accounting positions before retiring in 1992 after 24 years of service. Not too long afterwards, Margaret started her second career, caring for her baby granddaughter Daria with much joy and delight.

Margaret enjoyed playing sports in her high school years and continued her interest in staying healthy over the years with racket ball, tennis, daily exercise workouts, walking and Tufts wellness newsletters which photocopies frequently made their way to the mailboxes of her daughters. She was born with the Queeley “curiosity” gene and was a lifelong learner, and believed in exposing her daughters to many different experiences including ice skating, piano, violin, dance and the visual and performing arts. Margaret didn’t believe in collecting dust under her feet. She loved to travel. In 1988, combining this with her love for the arts, she journeyed to Atlanta by herself to the first National Black Arts Festival. It soon became an important gathering place for our family and an important professional opportunity for her daughter, Laura. Margaret also loved jazz and hanging with her daughters at such venues as Wally’s in Boston, the Village Vanguard and the Blue Note in New York City.

In her later years, after deciding she didn’t want to cook any more, Margaret moved to Standish Village in the Lower Mills area of Dorchester where she was served three square meals a day (not always up to her culinary standards). While residing at Standish Village she enjoyed morning exercise, music, rediscovered her love of poetry, started oil painting and acquired an incredible sweet tooth for chocolate ice cream.

Margaret leaves to carry on her legacy of strength, curiosity and love: three daughters, Virginia Greer-Turner, Laura Greer, Sandra Greer-Sanders; granddaughter, Daria Anne Greer Turner; devoted siblings, Helena Queeley, George Queeley and Mary Queeley Crowell; sons-in-law, Darnell Turner and Robert Sanders; brother-in-law William Crowell and nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her brothers Charles (Link) Queeley, Thomas Queeley and her former husband George Greer.

I can’t imagine the sadness you must be feeling from your loss. May the love of Those around you help you through the days ahead. 2 Corinthians 1:3,4 says “that God is the God of comfort who comforts us in all our trials”. Jehovah hates death he views it as an enemy (1 Cor. 15:26). At John 5:28,29 it speaks about a resurrection when” all those in the memorial tombs will come out “and live life to the full without pain, suffering, death. Through God’s kingdom these promises are sure to come true! May you take comfort in loving memory and friends, family that surround you. 🌹🌹🌹
