WILMINGTON — Marguerite Anne Miller DiFulvio, 67, of Wilmington, passed away Saturday, Nov. 26, 2016, at her residence surrounded by her family.

Born July 30, 1949, in Johnson City, N.Y., she is a daughter of the late Louis Miller and Dorothy Elizabeth White Miller. In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her siblings, Moe, Gary and Elaine.

Marguerite is survived by her daughters, Jacquelyn McDonald, and her husband, Bill, of Bel Air, Md., and Courtney Newcomb of Creedmoor, N.C.; her six grandchildren, Jocelyn, Hailey, Savannah, Dylan, Allison and Will; her four siblings, Dottie, Marilyn, Betty and Michael; and numerous nieces and nephews.

Marguerite was a dedicated educator. Although her family came first, she is remembered for her drive to better the lives of her students and their families in and out of the classroom. For over 40 years, Mrs. D. gave her best to provide a quality education to her students and to create an environment that gave the students the skills to succeed. In her retirement, she enjoyed spending more time with her grandchildren as well as cooking, photography and traveling – especially cruises. She was also known as quite the prankster.

A memorial service will be held at 11 a.m. Friday, Dec. 9, at St. Mark Catholic Church.

In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made in Marguerite’s name to St. Jude’s, 501 St. Jude Place, Memphis, TN 38105; or Lower Cape Fear Hospice, 1414 Physicians Drive, Wilmington, NC 28401.
