Marguerite E. (Candura) Jones passed peacefully on February 11, 2023 after a decades long battle with MS. She was the daughter of the late Vincent and Marguerite Candura of Braintree. She is survived by her daughters Margaux Jones of Seattle WA and Michaela Plottke and her husband Peter Plottke of Naples FL. She will be greatly missed by her brothers and sisters-in-law Daniel and Marie Candura of Mashpee MA, Vincent and Julie Candura of Moultonborough NH and Michael and Sheila Candura of Laurens SC. She is survived by three grandchildren Jared Plottke, Marysa Plottke and River Hundven as well as three nephews and a niece.
Marguerite was an avid baker and made delicious cakes and cookies before MS took this past time away from her. She was an avid country music fan and especially enjoyed listening to Alan Jackson. A longtime Patriots fan she rooted for her home team each Sunday in the Fall. Although confined to a wheelchair she enjoyed being outdoors in the sunshine and watching the planes approaching Logan overhead.
For the past six years Marguerite was a resident of The Boston Home in Dorchester MA where she had many friends and was loved and cared for by the dedicated staff.
