Peggy Ann Mallon
My sister always wanted the best for everyone. Peggy Ann handled a lot of sad times alone and never complained. Peggy loved everyone of her (9) siblings, although as a young child was separated from them, she was put in an orphanage for a time.
Going into the working world she often worked two jobs at a time. Peggy worked 16 hours a day. Peggy worked 49 years for Bell Telephone and loved all her friends there. She was always being trained to move up and forward as technology moved forward. Peggy worked until the age of 74. She was proud of her work.
Peggy was proud of her son Joseph who worked hard to get his MBA. Now he’s finished his Doctorate. She did not have to say she loved him-she just lit up when she saw him walk in the room. Peggy will truly be missed.
I loved taking care of her. The rolls changed from her being big sister to me being a nurse, a mother and protector to her. I had to fight for her to be in my home during her illness. Peggy Ann needed me and peace and comfort that she did not have as a child.
We thank Felicia for her loyalty and love she gave Peggy. Peggy took a piece of our hearts with her and thank you Ann for your devotion. A special thank you to her longtime physician, Dr. Richard Condon and her friends at Meals on Wheels.
Abraham Lincoln wrote- If you look for the good in someone, surely you will find it. That is what Peggy Ann believed.
Thank you all for being here to bid her farewell.
