She was preceded in death by her parents and one son-in-law, James Woodward. Peggy retired after a long career with R.R. Donnelley in Dwight. Peggy very much loved her family and friends. She found happiness being on the go and spoiling her grandkids with shopping sprees. Peggy enjoyed doing puzzles in the solitude of her home in Canada, as much as she loved playing cards and dominoes with a couple of cocktails while in Citrus Park. Peggy loved to travel and soak up as much sunshine as she could find. She was an amazing wife, mother and grandmother, and will be greatly missed.
