Her beauty and outstanding personality was why she was voted Miss Interclub of 1974. Peggy’s whole life was her family. She lived for them as they did for her. She loved to watch cooking shows with her only Granddaughter, Sadie. Her legacy of showering her loved ones with food and love will be carried out by the next generation. Holidays filled with love and the abundance of food will live on. She loved the beach, spending summers on the Cape and in N.H with friends and family. Peggy was the biggest Patriots fan there was. She can go, happily know she witnessed the greatest Super bowl game ever played. Due to her history with design, she loved home renovations and interior design. She was always redoing a room, the house was ever changing, and it was her true passion. Another hobby Peggy enjoyed was knitting and sewing, she loved to knit hats and blanket for newborn babies in the hospital. Along with all of Peggy’s interests her most beloved was weekend trips away with her husband to Foxwoods. Even in death Peggy was giving back, she was able to donate her organs to the New England Organ Bank. Throughout her 3 children’s lives she took an active role in their education as a volunteer in all of the schools. As a grandmother Peggy made sure to instill a passion for learning and reading in Sadie, they spent countless hours talking about math and science and what it meant to be a strong and confident woman. She loved that Sadie was so interested in science and math and we hope to carry on that legacy. In lieu of flowers we have set up a Memorial fund to foster love and learning through math and science.
