Marguerite A. “Peg” Fasino

Marguerite (Corbo) Fasino passed away peacefully on July 25, 2023.  She was 95 years old.  

Marguerite was born on January 25, 1928 in Weymouth and was baptized at the Immaculate Conception Church. She was a lifelong parishioner of the Immaculate Conception Church and cherished her fellow parishioners, many of whom became like family. 

Marguerite devoted her life to her family, her faith, and educating others. She taught CCD and RCIA from the time she was a teenager, well into her eighties. She developed her parish’s confirmation curriculum and was recognized by the parish for her work in religious education in 1996. 

Marguerite was a graduate of Weymouth High School and went on to receive her Bachelor of Arts from Emmanuel College, majoring in English and French.  She took graduate courses at Laval University in Quebec, Canada. Later in life, she studied English Language Learning at UMass Boston.  

In her early teaching career, Marguerite taught French at Jeanne d’Arc Academy in Milton.  After marrying and raising her four children, she returned to teaching as Weymouth Public Schools’ first English as a Second Language (ESL) teacher.  Marguerite was a pioneer in the ESL field, and her work reached beyond the classroom.  She helped immigrant families within her community and was an important figure in her students’ lives.

In 1995, Marguerite received the Martin Luther King, Jr. award for her work with refugee and immigrant students and their families.  She was nominated by her students and received the Who’s Who Among American Teachers award in both 1998 and 2002.  

She enjoyed reading, time spent with family on holidays, birthdays, and trips on the family boat.  She was an avid fan of all Boston sports.  

Loving wife of the late James J. Fasino, Esq., daughter of the late Rose and Fred Corbo, and beloved sister of the late Emma Denaro of Watertown and the late Eleanor Cardinal of Hingham.  Marguerite is survived by her four children, James and Susan Fasino of Mansfield, Paula Collins of Mansfield, Ellen and John Clifford of Marshfield, and Marguerite and James Clifford of Attleboro.  Marguerite was a devoted and loving grandmother to her ten grandchildren, James Fasino, Aprill Lane, Michael Fasino, Elizabeth Fasino, Stephanie Collins, Kristina Daniel, Caitlin Morey, Cara Boliver, Danielle Cumberbatch, and Marguerite Beaudry.  She is also survived by eleven great-grandchildren and three great-great-grandchildren, as well as her cherished nieces, nephews, and friends.
