Madge Ruth Fraser, 63, formerly of Ogdensburg, died in Naples, Fla., on Friday, October 22, 2010.

Visitation will be from 10 a.m. to noon on Wednesday, October 27, 2010 at Fuller Funeral Home, 1625 Pine Ridge Road, Naples with a funeral ceremony following at noon.

Interment will be in Milanville Cemetery in Beach Lake, Fla.

Madge is survived by many cousins and very good friends.

She was predeceased by her loving parents, Leila and Andrew Fraser, long-time residents of Pelican Bay in Naples.

Madge was born in New York City but spent the majority of her childhood and young adult life in Ogdensburg. She was a graduate of The Ogdensburg Free Academy and attended Saint Lawrence University in Canton.

She and her family moved to Wilmette, Ill., where her father was one of the owners of Acco Business Products. It was here that Madge started her successful business career.

Madge moved to Cambridge, Mass., and with her intelligence and hard work became a Vice President and senior loan officer at the headquarters of The Bank of Boston, which at the time was a particularly unique accomplishment for a woman.

She loved the Boston area and made many friends and participated in the many social opportunities that Boston offered.

After her father's retirement, her parents moved to Pelican Bay in Naples.

Madge eventually retired and joined her parents while maintaining her beautiful condo on the banks of the Charles River in Cambridge.

She and her father purchased a property in Mashpee, Mass., where they spent their summers.

Madge did not forget her roots and along with her parents was a generous supporter of the Remington Art Museum and the A. Barton Hepburn Hospital in Ogdensburg.

Donations in Madge's memory may be made to a charity of choice.
