Margaret “Peggy” had many interests. She enjoyed traveling, sewing, painting, decorating, baking and various crafts. She loved nothing more than spending time with her family, dining out and shopping. Even at the age of 93 she never missed a chance to go out with her family or friends to the grocery store, an overnight in Boston or a weekend trip to NYC or Newport. Her last adventure was the Christmas Pops, which she truly enjoyed.
