On Saturday, August 28, 2021, Margaret (Egazarian) Urbec, age 91, passed away peacefully at the Westerly Health Center in Westerly RI.  She was the beloved wife of the late John G. Urbec.  

Margaret was born in Worcester, MA on November 13, 1929, and was the daughter of the late Kachadoor and Araxe (Asadoorian) Egazarian.

Margaret shared her love of cooking with the community as a local caterer for many years.  She was a communicant of St Pius X. Church of Westerly.  Margaret also volunteered her time at the Westerly Hospital and with Meals on Wheels.  

Margaret’s warm and caring nature made her loved by those who knew her, but especially by her adoring children.  The most important thing to Margaret was her family, and she would always put them first.  Margaret shared her Armenian heritage with her family through her love of cooking.   Holiday meals were always spent with extended family, and Margaret would make some traditional Armenian food for everyone to enjoy.   She also enjoyed spending time at the beach with her family and friends.  

She is survived by her children, Matthew M. Urbec and his wife Rhonda of Westerly, Andrew A Urbec and his wife Wendy of Ashaway, Julia M. Huesman and her husband Christopher from Stonington CT, Susan F Ewans of Worcester, MA, James S. Urbec of Spencer, MA, Elizabeth J. Urbec of Worcester MA, Clara Urbec of Worcester MA, Martha W Heirtzler of Virginia Beach, and predeceased by Jack Urbec of Florida.  She was a loving and devoted Nana to many grandchildren and great-grandchildren.  She was the sister of the late Harry Egazarian and Rose Sachetto.
