Marion R. Prado

August 7, 2019


Marion R. (Aspinall) Prado, age 74, entered into eternal rest on August 7, 2019 at Mass General Hospital, after a lengthy illness.

She was the beloved wife of the late David A. Prado.

Born in Taunton, she was a daughter of the late Herbert and Marion (Waterman) Aspinall.

Marion was raised in Berkley and was educated in Berkley and Freetown schools. She was a longtime member of the North Taunton Baptist Church as well as a secretary and Assistant for many years. She worked at the former Paul A. Dever State School for 20 years and was then transferred to the A.E.I. work center in Wrentham where she was employed for 10 years before retiring in 2003. Marion also worked at Arc of Northern Bristol County before and after retirement. Through this agency she also did volunteer work at Morton Hospital.

Marion enjoyed reading, gardening, dining out, crocheting, going to Plymouth, swimming in her pool, and going on day trips with her husband. She especially enjoyed spending time with her grandchildren. She was always doing little things to make others happy and was always willing to lend a helping hand to others. Marion had a smile for everyone.

She is survived by her daughters; Brenda White of Taunton, and Barbara Alphonse and husband Kenneth of Taunton, grandchildren; Justin White, Noah Alphonse, Kaylee Alphonse, Selena Alphonse, and great grandmother of four, step-son; David Prado of Taunton.
