Born November 13, 1927, in Squirrel Hill, Pennsylvania.  She was the daughter of James and Dorothy Ewing.   

She married the late Daniel R.

After attending Allderdice High School in Pittsburgh, Peggy worked for a short period of time in the banking industry.  She was a member of Holy Sepulcher Catholic Church, Penn Township Woman’s Club and delivered Meals on Wheels.  She enjoyed traveling, gardening, cooking, reading, and making wine. She loved to share stories about her childhood growing up at Dalzell Place in Squirrel Hill.   She always provided positive support and love for her family.  She was a kind and caring person, who will be deeply missed by all who knew her.
