  6. The “ Gabriel Girls” & boys have been so blessed in recent years to enjoy many reunions and school picnics with the Class of 1962. It was so great to see Peggy again on these occasions. She reminded me that we were in the First Communion procession together with a vintage photo of the two of us in our veils, dresses and white gloves.
    We had lunches, dinners and laughs and so much fun reminiscing about our years together at St Gabriel’s Parish School. Peggy’s bicycle adventure through Ireland with her touring group was one of many stories she described to us.
    Peggy was without a doubt devoted to family, her teaching career, her faith and friends. Peggy has always been a very special person in so many ways. I am so sad about her passing but good to know she will be reunited with all the people she loves.

  9. Pegatha, a joyous reunion with your parents and other deceased family members is being celebrated; but you leave a hole in the hearts of those left here. I know your smile is lighting heaven. Hope there is a bicycle there! Miss you dear friend!

  10. So sad. I remember best, being with Peggy being on a European ride organized by Don Humphrey from The Touring Cyclist bike shop. It was a wonderful experience and Peggy made it delightful with her optimism and passion for biking, She will always have a place our heart.

  11. Peggy,
    It was so good reconnecting with you here at Cedarhurst, after so many shared experiences at St. Cronan. You left too soon, and I miss you.
    Say hello to Jim Krings for me.

  13. The Class of 1962 reunion committee will miss Peggy! Those meetings were not always about reunions, but to touch base on how everyone was doing. It was eat, drink and be merry, and maybe a little business. Peggy we will miss your many contributions.
    I have a memory of Peggy…. She was returning from one of her bicycle trips in Europe and we met in the airport overseas. She really enjoyed her cycling! She enjoyed life and adventure.
    I saw Peggy in late January. I enjoyed the time we shared. Life is short – enjoy it.
    Chris and family, my sympathy on the loss of your sister and aunt. She will be missed.

  15. Peggy could light up a room with her smile. I was blessed to have gone to St Gabe’s and DuBourg with Peggy. Peggy was always a part of the committee planning our grade school reunions. She enjoyed reconnecting with former classmates. I loved hearing about her biking adventures and also talking to her about her love of Ireland. She will be missed. Rest In Peace, dear friend.
