Margaret T. Costello

June 21, 1926 - April 28, 2020

Margaret T. Costello of Yardville, passed away peacefully on April 28th at RWJ Hamilton after a short illness. She was born June 21, 1926 in Elizabeth, NJ. She is the daughter of the late Margaret Freeman and John Fahey. Predeceased by her husband Bill Costello of Yardville, she is survived by her daughter Kathy and husband Paul Moravek of Old Bridge, daughter Ellen and husband Ken Harwood of Washington, D.C. and son Bob and his wife Janette of Santee, California.

She is also survived by her sister Catherine Gallagher of Grosse Ile, Michigan and brother, John and his wife Pat Fahey of Neptune, NJ as well as several nieces and nephews. She will always be remembered by her loving granddaughters, Brittany, Morgan, Hannah and grandson, Kevin. Marge had a great sense of humor, often self-deprecating, and was quick to get up and dance at any celebration big and small. She is well known by her granddaughters for her kick ball change tap dance step and willingness to allow them to put on her makeup and style her hair any way they pleased. Grammy will be fondly remembered running down Springdale Ave. to meet their car when visiting Yardville. Marge loved Irish music, visiting with family, and a good cookie.

Marge retired from GE/RCA in 1988 after 20 years of service and she was a member of the senior group at St. Vincent De Paul Church in Yardville.

Marge and Bill were famous for “taking a dry run” car ride to any new venue, just to make sure they knew the route and wouldn’t get lost. In this case, Bill paved the way to ensure Marge’s safe arrival. They will be dearly missed.

The family would like to extend a heartfelt thanks to the staff at Care One Hamilton for their tireless devotion to Margaret over the past 5 years.

Due to public health regulations a private funeral service was held at the Buklad-Merlino Yardville Memorial Home, 30 Yardville-Allentown Road in Yardville. Private Burial was in St. Mary’s Cemetery.
