Margaret Harrison Obituary
Margaret "Peggy" Folkes Harrison

Margaret "Peggy" Folkes Harrison late of Fair Oaks, at 78 years of age after a ten year fight with ovarian cancer. Peggy was a true southern lady, gracious, hospitable, and loving, and proud of her roots. She was an elementary school teacher and retired recently from the Bank of America. Daughter of Col. and Mrs. John Folkes, she enjoyed a life of travel and adventure with the military as a girl. Peggy dearly loved her husband of 57 years, Chuck, daughter Vanessa (Dave) and son Chip (Linda), and adored her two grandsons, Ryan and Duncan, all of whom survive her. Peggy's favorite time of year was Christmas and she kept it in her heart all year long. An informal memorial for her will be held on Saturday, November 2. Those wishing to attend may contact vanessa_gillis@yahoo.com. In lieu of flowers the family asks for donations to the National Ovarian Cancer Coalition, Alzheimer's/dementia charities, or children's charities.
