Obituary

Geraldine Congdon (Dargenio) died peacefully in her home on September 20, 2022.

Born to Antoinette Dargenio (DiCesaro) and Louis Dargenio in 1943, Gerry grew up in Swansea and graduated from Joseph Case High School. She met many of her friends there and maintained those relationships throughout her life.

Gerry was a licensed practical nurse and worked for several years at Stanley Street Treatment and Resource Center. She loved yard sales, time at the beach, and reading in her car at the Somerset boat ramp. Above all she loved her family and friends, and enjoyed sharing meals and memories with them. She was an avid cook, who was known to make lasagna, spaghetti, or eggplant parmigiana for her family at every holiday. She had a wry sense of humor and her laugh was infectious. Anyone who spent time with Gerry will remember her sensational laugh and quick wit, along with her no-nonsense approach to life. 

She is survived by her daughters Elizabeth Forand and Tammy Acim, her grandchildren Jessica (Matteson) Marcil (husband Scott), Meghan Matteson, Jeffrey Paquette, Samantha and Joshua Congdon, as well as her daughter- in-law Stacy (Astorino) Congdon and son-in-law Thomas Forand. She also leaves a great grandson, Harrison Marcil. 

She was predeceased by her devoted son Peter R. Congdon Jr., who passed away in October 2021, as well as her sister, Grace (Dargenio) Fisher, who passed away in 2010.
