Obituary for Marilyn Jekot (Bateman)

Marilyn J. (Bateman) Jekot, 74, of Somers, loving wife of 53 years to the late, Edward J. Jekot, Sr., entered into Eternal Rest on Wednesday, June 5, 2019, in the comfort of her home surrounded by her loving family. Marilyn was born December 5, 1944, in Chicopee, MA the daughter of the late Harold and Irene (Tetreault) Bateman. While Marilyn worked as a bookkeeper for many years, her most important job was being a wonderful wife and outstanding mother who gave her heart and soul to the job. She made every holiday special with her delicious cooking and meticulous decorating. Marilyn loved traveling, dancing, dressing up, and dining. Traveling to warm destinations and ship cruising with her husband, Ed, were the highlight of her winters, while her summers were lovingly spent in the Berkshires. She enjoyed antiquing, collecting beautiful textiles, and gardening. She handcrafted quilts to be treasured by her children and grandchildren. In her last days, she took joy in gazing at beautiful blooms from her gardens that she had nurtured over the years and watching God’s creatures, such as hummingbirds, finch, chipmunks, and a special raccoon. These more quiet days gave her repose to rest from all the time and effort she had put into making life perfect for her loved ones and finally allowed her to be taken care of. Her son, Ed Jr., and daughter, Darlene, as well as special caregiver, Sylvia made sure her last days were full of comfort and peace. She will be remembered as a loving wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister, and friend. She is survived by her four children, Darlene Cyr and her husband, Brett of Enfield, Frances Kula and her husband, Peter of Enfield, Edward J. Jekot, Jr. of Neptune Beach, FL, and Wayne Jekot and his wife, Deborah, of Canton; her grandchildren, Amanda Cumbo and her husband, William, Sr., Steven Milotte, Danielle and Samantha Cyr, Stephanie and David Kula and Hugh Jekot; four great-grandchildren, Abigail, Autumn, Averie, and William, Jr.; two brothers, Robert Bateman and his wife, Gladys of Truro, MA, Francis Bateman and his wife, Virginia of Chicopee, MA; a sister, Beverly Scott and her husband, Richard of Chicopee, MA, and several nieces and nephews. Relatives and friends are welcome to join the family on Monday, June 10, 2019, from 4 pm to 7 pm at Leete-Stevens Enfield Chapels, 61 South Rd., Enfield. A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated on Tuesday, June 11, 2019, at 10 am at All Saints Church, 25 School St., Somersville. Please meet at the church. Burial will follow in St. Adalbert’s Cemetery, Enfield. Memorial contributions in memory of Marilyn may be made to the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, 501 St Jude Place Memphis, TN 38105.

I would like to extend my deepest condolences to you all. I enjoyed meeting Marilyn and getting to know her during our time together at the cancer center. She struck me as such a special woman and reading her obituary further reinforced that thought. I am terribly sorry for your loss and I wish you all much peace in knowing that you were blessed by her love for so many years.
Fondly, Dorine
