NORTH ATTLEBORO – Margot L. Pirnie, 74, of North Attleboro passed away unexpectedly on Sunday, November 14, 2021 at home.  She was the beloved wife of Lyle Pirnie with whom she celebrated fifty years of marriage this past August.

Born August 16, 1947 in Frederick, Maryland, she was a daughter of the late Edward J. and Mary M.. (Mussetter) Larson.

Margot’s father was an Air Force Veteran, so Margot moved around from Germany, England, Ft. Meade in Maryland among other bases before moving to North Attleboro in 1985.

She graduated from the University of Maryland with a BA in Elementary Education and later a MA from Elmira College in New York in Remedial Reading.

Margot taught at Corning West High School in New York for 11 years and most recently worked as a part-time substitute teacher at the Sage School in Foxboro since 1998.

She was a ‘master’ quilter and a member of Grace Episcopal Church in North Attleboro where she previously taught Sunday school.  She was also devoted to animals and her cats.

In addition to her husband, she is survived by two sons: Eric and Christian Pirnie both of North Attleboro; a brother, Jack Larson and wife Ginnie of Silver Spring, MD; and two nephews: Andy and David Larson.

A funeral Mass will be held on Friday, December 3 at 11 a.m. at Grace Episcopal Church, 104 North Washington Street, North Attleboro.  Burial will be held at a later date at Arlington National Cemetery, Washington D.C.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the North Attleboro Animal Shelter, 43 South Washington Street, North Attleboro, MA 02760.

  • Margot was a lovely lady and neighbor of our family when we lived at 6 Deer Hollow Road for 15 years. My daughter Lori Ann Austin would babysit their children when she was a teenager. When Lori called me of this sad news, I was in shock and feeling so sad. Margot and I loved our gardening and she gave me some great tips on gardening my flowers,etc. To this day I still do my gardening now living in Tennensee, prior to that did it in South Carolina. We also belonged to our neighborhood Bunco group. A fun night at each other houses once a month. I also belonged to Grace church with my husband Richard and our children Lori and Richard. My thoughts and prayers? are with you Margot and your family at this most difficult time. God Bless you always❤ as you are now resting in peace. You will be missed by all who knew you.  God Speed. ❤? Sincerely and Love, Joanne and family.  I know my husband Richard greeted you in heaven❤?He has been there since February 17, 2008 a day after our 45th wedding anniversary.  

  • Margot was my biggest cheerleader.  I always thought I could call her tomorrow.  My regret is I didn’t call her yesterday…

  • No one was more genuinely caring than Margot. I’m her cousin and spent some time in summers at her family’s home in Fort Meade, MD. Imagine a 16-yr-old with a busy social life who let a 10-yr-old tag along! I idolized her, needless to say. The world is a little darker without her bright spirit.

  • Margot was such a lovely and deeply caring individual.  She was an exceptional teacher and I am blessed to have met her through her time at the Sage school, having two children who were Sage lifers.  I am deeply sorry for your loss and wish you comfort in all the great memories you all shared together.  I am truly grateful to have known Margot and to have her touch the lives of my children with her kind soul.
