Peggy moved to Meriden, CT, where she taught at Israel Putnam School for 36 years. She started as a fifth-grade teacher. In 1970, she received her master’s degree in Special Education from Central Connecticut State College, and her remaining years were spent as a learning disabilities specialist.

Peggy was also a member of Holy Angels Church, a member of the Meriden Council of Catholic Women and a past-president of the Holy Angels Women’s Club.

I'm so deeply sorry to hear of Peggy's passing. Many years ago, she was a veteran teacher while I was a "rookie". We were assigned a classroom to share at Israel Putnam. She welcomed me with open arms and a big jar of cinnamon gummy bears! I observed her kindness, generosity, and nurturing way of dealing with students that I tried to emulate the rest of my career. Although we only taught that one year together, we remained good friends and would see each other at seminars, and years later, retired teachers' luncheons, and even Home Goods! I will never forget her and will miss her deeply. With my sympathy, Kathy Nitkowski

A most wonderful lady. She was my mother's best friend all of her life. { Pauline Desruisseaux-Alves- Barboza}. My earliest memory was when I was 4 years old. She always remembered me on birthdays and holidays. This special memory was an Easter holiday and she surprised me with a beautifully wrapped chocolate egg that seemed so huge in my little hands and was filled with fruity deliciousness. She passed on my mothers birthday and I'm sure she was there to greet her as she entered her heavenly home. My sincere sympathy to her family.
