Marguerite M. (Brogneaux) Ferguson, 97, passed away peacefully at her home on Sunday, October 13, 2019, surrounded by her loving family.

Born August 17, 1922 in Point Marion, PA, she was the daughter of the late Roger and Augusta (DuBois) Brogneaux.

Marguerite graduated from Point Marion High School in 1941 and from the Pittsburgh School of Nursing in 1944. Upon her graduation, she proudly served her country as a lieutenant in World War II as a US Army Nurse at Woodrow Wilson Hospital in Staunton, VA, acting as both a duty nurse and a charge nurse.

On November 17, 1945, she married George Ferguson at St. Francis Church in Staunton, VA by Rev. George McLaughlin.

George and Marguerite relocated to Warren County in the late 1940s and raised their family. Marguerite enjoyed cooking, sewing, knitting, reading, flowers and gardening, family photography, swimming and spending time with her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.

Marguerite worked for many years as a registered nurse at Glens Falls Hospital.

In addition to her parents, Marguerite was predeceased by her daughter Geraldine Ferguson, her grandson Jeff Johnson, her sister Joanne Jordan, and her brother Roger Brogneaux.

Left to cherish her memory are her husband of 74 years, George Ferguson, her children; Renee Johnson and husband Alan of Queensbury, Eileen Tarantino and her companion Jack MacDonald of Queensbury, George Ferguson and wife Kathleen Ross of Chicago, IL, John Ferguson and wife Lisa of Delmar, and Tim Ferguson and wife Carol of Glens Falls, her grandchildren; AJ Johnson and wife Megan, Brian Johnson and fiancée Lori Murillo, Lisa Tarantino and fiancé Gonzalo Garcia, Jessica Tarantino, Nick Tarantino and wife Tamara, George Ross Ferguson and wife Rachel, Peter Ross Ferguson and wife Meghan, Theo Ferguson, Andrea Ferguson, Erica Morgan and husband Eric, and Marissa Ferguson, 11 great-grandchildren, as well as several nieces, nephews and cousins.

Friends may call from 10-11am on Wednesday, October 16, 2019 at St. Mary’s Church, 62 Warren Street, Glens Falls, NY. A Funeral Mass will follow the calling hours at the church.

Rite of Committal will take place at St. Mary’s Cemetery in South Glens Falls following the services.

In lieu of flowers memorial donations in Marguerite’s name can be made to the Open Door Mission P.O. Box 3306 Glens Falls, NY 12801.

We lived across the street from George and Marguerite for 10 years in Queensbury. She was absolutely the sweetest woman. We always enjoyed our chats with her, and she adored my son...always had a piece of candy or cookies for him whenever we stopped by! Our sincere condolences to the family on the loss of a wonderful lady.
