Ann Verge

1932 - 2021


Ann Verge of Malden, 89, passed away suddenly and too soon on Tuesday, November 9th. Daughter of the late William L. Hunt of Charlestown and the late Mary E. Thomas of East Boston, Ann graduated from Charlestown High School in 1950 and then worked as a teenager in the Schrafft’s Chocolate Factory.

After her high school sweetheart, the late Edward B. Verge, Jr. (“of the dreamy blue eyes”) returned from service in Korea, Ann married the dashing soldier and settled in Malden. They had two children during their 46 year marriage.

Ann Verge was an active, full-time mother, attending Little League baseball games, baking brownies, and leading Girl Scout Troops. An artist at heart, she loved to sew, paint, make dolls, and bead jewelry. She decorated her house with knitted blankets, handmade quilts, and butterfly appliqués. She adored the Red Sox but couldn’t bear to watch them very much, at least until 2004.

Ann was predeceased by siblings Thomas Hunt and Dorothy J. Riley and survived by two children and their spouses, Robert (Jennifer) Verge of Florida and Lisa Verge (Thomas) Higgins of New Jersey, as well as six grandchildren, Trace Lacasto, Brennan Verge, Eason Verge, Caitlin Higgins, Molly Higgins, and Maeve Higgins.

She will be dearly missed by friends, family, and all the early risers she would greet during her daily walks around Malden.

Funeral services for Ann will be held at the Weir-MacCuish Golden Rule Funeral Home, 144 Salem Street, Malden, on Monday, November 15th, at 10 AM. Interment will take place in Woodlawn Cemetery at a later date. Visitation will be held at the funeral home on Sunday, November 14th, from 4 – 8 PM.
