Obituary For Marguerite L. Pedracine

Madison - Marguerite L. Pedracine passed away on Sunday, November 27th, 2022 at the age of 95, after battling the complications of growing old.

Born in Bear Valley WI, Marguerite had a long and fulfilling life. She was the other half of "Pedracine Rentals" managing bookkeeping and apartment leases that catered to UW students. This garnered friendships that spanned over 55 years. On top of all that she managed to raise four children. In her spare time Marguerite was an avid bridge player and gardener. She made braided rugs, quilts, refinished furniture, and knitted caps for newborns at Meriter Hospital. She was best known among her progeny for her delicious cinnamon sweet rolls and oatmeal chocolate chip cookies. Fond memories include huge pots of Italian sausage in bubbling tomato sauce. Not bad for a red headed Irish girl!

Marguerite was preceded in death by Leroy "Bud" Pedracine her husband of 67 years and seven siblings. She is survived by her children Allan (Georgia), Marcia (Tom), Steven (Leticia) and David; Grandchildren Christopher, Nicholas, Andrew, Nathan, Caitlin, Nathalie, Sarah, and Lauren; Great-Grandchildren Nicky, Anabelle, Harvey, Margot, Owen.

All friends, family and tenants will remember Marguerite for her feistiness. She loved all things Badger and Packer, and it is only fitting that she passed during a game. We love you and miss you already Mom/Granny! In lieu of flowers we suggest you give someone you love a hug or do something kind for another.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be held on Friday, December 2, 2022 at 10:00 a.m. at Good Shepherd Parish at St. James Catholic Church, 1204 St. James Court, with Monsignor Tom Baxter presiding. A private interment will be held at Forest Hill Cemetery.

    It was the early 80's... Danny (her little brother) had an appointment in Madison but needed Marguerite to babysit us little ones (me, Moria and Bryant). Not only only did she look after us for the day, but she treated us to the Smurf's Ice Capades at the Coliseum. I rolled my eyes thinking it was going be totally boring BUT it was just the opposite. We loved it! Her and Leroy were always very hospitable and welcoming. I think she was dad's favorite sister and she's definitely my favorite aunt. I'm happy she's looking down on us.... - Ryan Clements

what our families say

Tiffany Foster went out of her way to fulfill all my requests, talked me through problems I was facing, and tried to make me feel as comfortable as possible when I was a wreck, totally crushed, and I thank her with all of my heart for that.

The professional manner of the staff made a difficult time a little easier.

Lynda R. | July 2020

Services provided for both parents were perfect, on time, and no issues. Brenda is awesome and strong!

Michael M. | July 2020

Skyler was absolutely amazing. She was so caring and helpful through this whole process. She even went above and beyond to meet with us in DeForest and even to make a stop at our home to drop off or pick up anything needed. While it was a small gesture, it was so helpful and greatly appreciated.
