Margaret Evelyn McGuinness Morton (Sis/Maggie/Marge), 84, passed away on May 15, 2017 in Jupiter, FL surrounded by her family. She was born on January 25, 1933 in New Brunswick, NJ to Francis McGuinness and Margaret Oliver McGuinness of Metuchen, NJ.

Marge graduated from Metuchen High School in Metuchen, NJ in 1952. After high school she worked at the Acme Store in Metuchen where she eventually met her future in-laws and husband.

Marge married William (Red) Morton in 1958 in Metuchen, NJ and was happily married for 55 years. Although she loved listening to Big Band music, bowling and making ceramics, her children, family, pets and friends were her passion and delight.

Margaret is survived by her sister Sharon McGuinness Ridzyowski of Jupiter, FL; daughters Dawn Rech of Apex, NC and Debbie Heal (husband James) of Dublin, CA; sons Glenn Morton (wife Cassie) of Jupiter, FL and John Morton (wife Ellen) of Maple Grove, MN; and grandchildren Katie and Elizabeth Rech, Joanna McGuinness, Felicia Johnston, and Townsend Heal. She is pre-deceased by her husband Bill Morton, brothers Frank, Billy, George, Tommy, John and Jimmy, and sisters Roberta and Jean.

Marge was a great daughter, wife, sister and mother who was considered a second Mom to many of the lives that she touched. She will be sorely missed!

In lieu of flowers the family requests donations be made to Hospice of Palm Beach.
