Margo (Pelletier) Bard, 64, of Bristol, passed away on Sunday (July 3, 2022) after a long hard-fought battle with cancer with her loving husband, Ricky Bard, by her side.  Margo was born and raised in Meriden, and was one of five children of the late Marcel and Marguerite (Dutil) Pelletier. The ultimate Disney fan, she was a longtime General Manager for Friendly’s Restaurants, most recently on the Berlin Turnpike, Newington. 

In addition to her husband of 29 years, she leaves behind her four siblings: Marc Pelletier (Terra) of Middletown, Michelle Sattler of Southington, Michael Pelletier (Tracy) of Texas, and Marianne McCleland (Michael) of Florida; and many cherished nieces and nephews. She will also be missed by her large Friendly’s family which she cherished over the years. A special thank you for the caring care from the oncology department at UConn Health. 

Ricky will greet relatives and friends at St. Ann Church, 215 West St., Bristol on Saturday (July 12, 2022) between 9 and 10 a.m. followed by the celebration of Mass of Christian Burial at 10 a.m. Burial will follow in St. Joseph Cemetery, Bristol. 

Those wishing to say a cherished good-bye to Dear Margo are invited to bring a single rose to leave at her final resting place. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, 501 St. Jude Place, Memphis, TN 38105 or to the American Cancer Society, PO Box 22718, Oklahoma City, OK 73123.  Funk Funeral Home, 35 Bellevue Ave., Bristol, is honored to serve Margo’s family. Please visit Margo’s memorial website at .
