Margaret T. Healy

September 5, 1926 — January 12, 2023




Margaret T. (O'Toole) Healy, a Westford resident and wife of the late Richard K. Healy passed away surrounded by her family on Thursday, January 12, 2023. She was 96.


Born in Clinton on September 5, 1926, she was a daughter of the late William and Florence (O'Brien) O'Toole.


Margaret and Richard established RK Healy & Son Paving in 1962 and she has served as the company bookkeeper since then. As the matriarch of her family they meant everything to her. She was happiest when with her family. Margaret looked forward to Wednesday bingo and ice cream with them. Margaret loved crossword puzzles and was an avid reader. She loved knitting, and her specialty was making sweaters for her family with their initials. She was a deeply spiritual woman who prayed the Rosary daily and was a lifelong communicant of St. Catherine’s church. She was a wonderful confidante who always gave sound advice without judgment. 


In the 1970’s, Margaret and Richard spent weekends at the “trailer park”, Old Stage Campground, with friends and family. Beginning in the 1980’s, they became snowbirds in Winter Haven, Florida, spending many afternoons at Chain O Lakes Park watching the Red Sox at Spring training. They also enjoyed summer vacations at the Highland Avenue Inn at Hampton Beach.


She is survived by her four children and their spouses, Kathleen and Jay Pacsay, Brian Healy and his Annie, Mary and Peter Sudak, Maureen and Thomas Cauley all of Westford; ten grandchildren, Joe Pacsay, Kimberly Pacsay Downing, Michael Healy, Jonathan Healy, Charles Britt, Dean Sudak, Nick Sudak, Courtney Sudak, Erin Cauley, Timothy Cauley; ten great grandchildren, Jack, Maggie, Sam, William, Riley, Jackson, Nathan, Paxton, Luca, Lilyanna; a brother in law James Dickhaut of Needham; and several nieces and nephews. Margaret was the sister of the late William O'Toole, Marie McNamara, Barbara Dickhaut, and James O'Toole.
