Margaret Curtis Aquino  1928 – 2021


Margaret (Curtis) Aquino, age 93, went to be with the Lord at her home in Carolina Shores, NC, surrounded by her loving daughter Mary Margaret Aquino-Cooper and her son-in-law Jim Cooper.

Born in Gouverneur, NY, to Leo and Louise Curtis, Margaret attended the Crane School of Music at Potsdam State Teachers College (now SUNY Potsdam) where she received a BS and later her MA in Music Education. She was a sought-after piano accompanist at Crane, and it was through that talent she met her husband, Antone. They became tenor and accompanist, then married in 1955.

Active in the arts around the greater Boston area from 1969–1994, Margaret accompanied the Paul Madore Chorale, played organ at Holy Family Roman Catholic Church, and sang with the John Oliver Chorale and the Tanglewood Festival Chorus for many of those years.

In 1994, she moved with her husband to Carolina Shores, NC, where she volunteered with the Brunswick County Literacy Council and remained active in the arts, accompanying and singing with the Myrtle Beach Choral Society.

Margaret was predeceased by her husband Antone (d. 2012), her parents, her brother, and her half-sister. She is survived by her daughter and son-in-law, and by her son.
