Obituary of Margaret Ann Loftus

Please share a memory of Margaret to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.

Margaret Ann Loftus, nee Chatary, passed away suddenly on February 13, 2024. She was 81 years old. She was

born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania to Michael and Elizabeth Chatary on May 1, 1942.


She grew up and lived in Philadelphia with her parents and five siblings, until marrying John

Loftus on February 27, 1962, upon which she began her journey as a military wife.

Together, with their children, they were stationed at many different places throughout the

country and in Germany. Margaret was an amazing mother and proud military wife who made

raising three children while John was deployed look easy. No matter how difficult this may have

been at times, Margaret made it very well known that she wouldn’t have done anything

differently. She was extremely proud of her husband and children for enduring this lifestyle.


After 23 years as a military wife, she and her family settled down in Edgewater Park, NJ in 1983,

where she and John resided for the rest of their lives.


Margaret had many interests, including camping with her family and friends, traveling the

country, numerous military support organizations, selling Avon for more than 50 years, as well

as spending quality time with her family.  She made many loving friends along her journey.

Margaret was also an amazing grandmother, taking any and every opportunity to spend time

with all of her grandchildren.


Margaret is predeceased by her husband: John (2018), a son: Thomas Michael (1965), and

two siblings: Michael Chatary and JoAnn Flynn. She is survived by her three children: John J.

Loftus (Linda Lamb), Cathryne Smith (Gregory Smith), and Barbara Primiani (Anthony

Primiani), her five grandchildren: Kayleigh Smith (Fiancée-Blair Kokotajlo), Noah Primiani

(Katherine Primiani), Nicholas Smith, Zachary Primiani (Teresa Primiani), and Peter Primiani

(Girlfriend- Sara Rothemich), one great-grandchild: Veronica Primiani, and three siblings:

Elizabeth Austin, Frances Kowalski, and Helen Brockow.
