Obituary for Laura Jean McGeoghegan

February 16, 1927 - June 20, 2019
Brockton, Massachusetts | Age 92


Laura Jean (Evans) McGeoghegan, age 92 was peacefully welcomed into the arms of her heavenly father on June 20, 2019, surrounded by love in Brockton, Massachusetts. Wife of the late Charles Michael McGeoghegan.

Born on February 16, 1927 to Thomas and Agatha Evans of St. Teresa, Prince Edward Island. She grew up a farm girl who played the mandolin and harmonica at local kitchen parties. Like most Islanders, work took her to Boston where she met and married Charles on February 5, 1947.

Laura was the loving mother to a baker's dozen and is survived by Michael (Mary), Charles (Debby), Margaret, Jean, Frank (Cheryl), Philomena, Leo (Eileen), Mary Lincoln (Donnie), Myra Hart (David), Philip (Kim) and Anthony. Also survived by 27 grandchildren, 48 great grandchildren, and 2 great-great grandchildren and many nieces and nephews. She had four "bonus" children as well, Kathleen Kopp Rose Weaver, Theresa DiGregorio and John William McDonald. Honorary mother to Ellen Harris, honorary grandmother to Megan Harris Anderson and honorary great grandmother to Molly Harris.

Predeceased by parents, nine siblings, daughter Joanne, son James, and son-in- law Bill Colleton.

She will always be lovingly remembered for her quick smile, her silly nicknames and the ditty's she always had on the tip of her tongue. Laura loved the Lord and her family. Her passions were reading, home cooked meals, a nightly drive and her PEI home.

Resting at Magoun-Biggins Funeral Home 135 Union St. Rockland for visitation on Tuesday June 25th from 4 pm-6 pm with funeral service at the funeral home on Wednesday June 26th at 10 am.

Burial will be at the Massachusetts National Cemetery in Bourne.

Family and friends are invited to her celebration of life following internment at Margaret's residence at 240 Battles St. in Brockton.
