STRATTON/SAVANNAH, Ga. -- Mary Jane “Midge” Peer, 78, a resident of Savannah, and longtime seasonal resident of Stratton, died suddenly on Wednesday, July 13, 2005, at the Southwestern Vermont Medical Center in Bennington. She was born in Milwaukee, Wisc., Nov. 2, 1926 and was the daughter of Herbert and Lillian (Christie) Hazlewood. She attended and graduated from local schools and went on to graduate from Perdue University, West Lafayette, Ind. She met George Peer, also a Perdue graduate and the couple got married Feb. 14, 1948, in Indianapolis.

The Peer family grew with the addition of four children and Midge became a full-time mom. Besides her very busy home life, Midge was an active volunteer with Planned Parenthood and her church throughout her adult life. She was also an accomplished athlete and was ranked in the top 10 senior woman’s doubles by the USTA. She also enjoyed skiing, gardening, reading and a good game of bridge. Midge was always cheerful and was able to stay active to her last days. She was very happy with her tennis game the day before her death. She will be deeply missed by her family and friends.

Mrs. Peer is survived by her husband, George; her sons, Gary Peer of Pleasanton, Calif., Steven Peer of Washington, D.C., and Scott Peer of Glendale, Calif.; her daughter, Linda Peer of Salt Lake City, Utah; and four grandchildren: Brian, David, Sophia and Michael Peer.

A memorial service will celebrate her life on July 24, at 3 p.m. at the Skidaway Island Presbyterian Church in Savannah. The Rev. John Wall will officiate. Following the service all are invited to a time of fellowship and refreshment in the Liston Hall adjoining the church.
