Matron of Honor - Barbara & Emil's Wedding
Welcome to this online memorial the Newill Family has created in loving memory of Mom...Peg...Peggy...Margie...Granny.
She was a remarkable lady that lived a life that was full of family, friends and significant contributions of her time and efforts to the community. Mom had an enthusiastic and optimistic outlook on life that was infectious. If you are visiting this site then you knew our Mom. And, you know what we are talking about. You would walk away from a conversation with my Mom feeling good. Or...you might have walked away thinking "How did I get talked into that?" She was also very persuasive. If there was a challenging situation at hand, she would figure out a way to overcome it. If you needed a pep talk, she would sense this and become a cheerleader. If you needed advice or counsel, she was there for you. And....if you needed advice or counsel and didn't know you needed it...she would figure out a positive way to influence you....for your own good. Mom always looked for the "win-win". And, all of this was delivered with a beautiful smile, a laugh and a big hug.
Mom had a big heart and the generous capacity to spread this heart and her interests in many directions. All of us have been a recipient of her heart. She spread a lot of love around.
We helped write her obituary. In doing so, we were reminded of how active she was in so many things. She was a natural leader. In most cases, she ended up being a President of the organizations she was involved in. Personally, we don't know how she fit all of this into her life. She was amazing.
Her strong values were evident in everything she did. Just imagine what the world would be like if everyone lived life as she did. The world would be a different place...that is for sure. Of course, there would be a lot less need, a lot more education and definitely -- there would be a lot more flowers!
Please sign Peg's guest book and leave a message for her and story about her.
Mom...we miss you dearly. You will always be in our hearts.
Love to all,
Dave, Barbara and Ted
