Beverly A Racine

August 26, 1948 — January 12, 2024

Gardner

Beverly A. Racine, a beloved figure of the Gardner community, passed away on January 12, 2024. Born in Gardner, MA, on August 26, 1948, Beverly graduated from Gardner High School in 1966 and furthered her education with a certificate from Fisher College. Her career spanned many years with the Social Security Administration in Fitchburg, where she skillfully operated as a teletypist. Her dedication to her work in the public sector was an embodiment of her commitment to serving others, a quality that was ever-present throughout her life. As Maya Angelou once said, "I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel." Beverly had a knack for making everyone around her feel seen, heard, and loved.

Beverly was a woman of many interests. She had a profound love for books and could often be found immersed in the world of her current novel. An avid bowler, she enjoyed the thrill of competition and the camaraderie of her team. She was also a devoted member of St. Camillus Church in Fitchburg, where her faith and community spirit were always evident. 

Beverly is survived by her siblings Lillian Newton, Pamela Martioski, Deborah Hart, Kathy Cormier, Rosemary Uppgard, Robert Martioski, Kenneth Martioski, Theresa Shappell, and Daniel Martioski. She was a loving aunt to many nieces and nephews. 

She is preceded in death by her parents, Joseph and Lillian Martioski, her husband Norman Racine, her brother, Joseph Martioski, and her sisters Pearl and Ann Martioski. Each of these individuals held a special place in her heart, and Beverly will be fondly remembered by each of them for her kindness, love, and warmth.

Beverly's funeral will be held on Tuesday, January 23, 2024, at 11:00 a.m. in the Mack Funeral Home, 105 Central Street, Gardner, MA 01440, there will be a calling hour before the funeral from 10:00 - 11:00 a.m.
