Beverly Mae DeSorcy


Our mother died peacefully at the Martha’s Vineyard Hospital on Dec. 2, 2018, surrounded by her family and while listening to her favorite Christmas carols.

Beverly Mae DeSorcey was incredibly proud of her family and spoke highly of them often. They were, without a doubt, the light of her life. She was also a passionate fan of the Boston Red Sox and the New England Patriots. She was fortunate enough to be able to see the Patriots beat the Vikings shortly before she died.

The family would like to extend a heartfelt thank-you to the wonderful staff of Hospice of Martha’s Vineyard, the Martha’s Vineyard Hospital, and Windemere, who filled her last years and days with compassion and kindness.

To honor Beverly’s memory, the family asks that you enjoy a long walk on the beach, decorate profusely for every holiday, do something kind for another, smile often as she always did, and enjoy a jelly doughnut.

Beverly was predeceased by her husband, Ronald A. DeSorcy. She is survived by her son, Willard Marden, and her daughter Patricia (DeSorcy) Gazaille and her husband Michael Gazaille. She is also survived by her five grandchildren, Lora and Kyle Marden, and Darren, Lily, and Caroline Gazaille.

There will be a private family remembrance at a later date.
