Meet Marjorie Gadue

Marjorie (Biafore) Gadue was born and raised in Meriden, Connecticut.  After graduating from Orvill H. Platt High School in 1975, Marjorie came to Vermont to attend Saint Michael’s College.  Majoring in History, Marjorie had many classes with American Studies major Mark Gadue on the small campus.  They were friendly, then became friends.  In mid-sophomore year, Marjorie transferred to Wesleyan University in Middletown, Connecticut.  However, she and Mark began writing letters back and forth.

In those pre-email days, the arrival of the mail was a small daily joy.  Through their letters and (after 11:00 p.m., $8 per hour) phone calls, Mark and Marjorie’s friendship grew into love.  When Marjorie graduated from Wesleyan, she came to Vermont to be with Mark.  Intending to pursue a graduate education, they decided instead to get married and begin their lives together.  With Mark’s Dad having passed away a few months earlier and his Mom struggling to run the One-Hour Martinizing on North Avenue, the young couple saw an opportunity to work together.  Thus they found themselves in the dry cleaning business.

In the early years, Marjorie worked at the counter, managed the payroll, and helped Mark however she could, while also raising their two children.  Gadue’s Dry Cleaning’s first forays into advertising took place on the radio, and it was here that Marjorie became The Voice of Gadue’s Dry Cleaning.  Writing all original radio ads and recording them herself, Marjorie has been an integral part of the company’s brand for almost 30 years.  In fact, though she is no longer involved in day-to-day operations, some clients still ask for Marjorie when they call us—and people who live hours outside of Chittenden County have credited her radio ads as the reason they became Gadue’s clients.

In 2001, Marjorie received her bachelor’s degree in nursing from UVM, and pursued a career in medical-surgical nursing at Fletcher Allen Health Care, later adding wound and ostomy care specialties.  Marjorie took a hiatus from nursing in 2007 after her first granddaugher was born, but plans to return to active practice in the near future.  In the meantime, you can hear her tales of dry cleaning on various points of your radio dial, including 104.7 WNCS, STAR 92.9, and 101.7 WCVT.
