Margaret N. "Peg" Stannard

1924-2013 Margaret N. "Peg" Stannard passed away Friday morning, March 1, 2013 at her home at Equinox Village in Manchester.

She was born on December 28, 1924 in Newburgh, New York; the daughter of Jacob R. and Margaret (Adams) Noller.

She received her education in Newburgh, New York. She was first married to Robert W. Burns of Dorset, Vt. and they lived in Newburgh. Mr. Burns passed away in May of 1975. She then married Richard N. Stannard, also of Dorset, and they lived together until his passing in 2010.

In her early days while married to Robert she worked as a telephone operator in Newburgh. She also worked as a secretary in the health care industry. She was a member of the Court St. Rita Catholic Daughters of America, American Legion Auxiliary and the Northshire Seniors, Inc.

She was a very generous and caring woman and never one to talk much about herself; preferring instead to learn as much about you as she could.

When asked how she was feeling she would reply, "I've felt better. How are your kids doing?"

Survivors include many cousins and her nephew, Robert J. Stannard.
