Summer months were spent at their home at the Regency in North Wildwood, N.J., sharing the beach life with all of her grandchildren who came to visit.
Arrangements will include a cremation in North Carolina followed by a celebration and Mass at St. James Catholic Church in Pennington, N.J., which will be determined at a later date. Peg devoted her life to the Lord and will be deeply missed by all who knew her.
