HERES, Marjorie Elizabeth Reuter Petersen (Marge) Marjorie Elizabeth Reuter Petersen Heres (Marge) received the gift of Eternal Life on July 14, 2015, at the age of 94. Born in Forest Hills, Long Island, New York to Elizabeth and Aage Petersen, she was an only child who considered her four cousins in Gonzales, Texas to be her "brothers and sisters." Marge graduated from Maryland College for Women where she was a member of the competitive women's equestrian team. She continued her education at New York-Presbyterian Medical Center, obtaining a degree in Physical Therapy. She married John Heres in 1944 and, following the end of WW II, they moved to Austin. While her husband attended the University of Texas, Marge worked as a Physical Therapist at the UT Athletic Department. Her professional career in the Dallas area included working as a PT for Region 10 Education Service Center serving multiple school districts, and her love of horses ultimately brought her to EQUEST Therapeutic Horsemanship in Wylie, where she finished her career and retired at the age of 80. A lifelong Presbyterian, Marge was involved in church work serving as a Sunday school teacher, youth group sponsor, and member of the Women of the Church. A strong and committed Christian, Marge loved the Lord, her family, gardening, camping, traveling, and making new friends. She was a fun-loving Mom and Grandma who leaves a legacy of optimism, selfless devotion to family, and genuine love for all mankind. Predeceased by her parents and former husband, John, Marge is survived by her three children: Sharyn Dearen (Dee), Lesley Martinelli (Bill), and Peter Heres (Barrie); eight grandchildren: Steven Dearen (Sarah), Andrea Dearen Davidson (Justin), Allison Martinelli Allison (Phillip), Brent Martinelli (Kim), Brian Martinelli (Meagan), Hunter Heres, Helen Heres Fendley (Andy), Hannah Heres; and fourteen great-grandchildren; and cousin Jim Randle of Frederick, MD. Marge selflessly donated her body to the UT Southwestern Medical School's Willed Body Program for medical education and research. The family wishes to express sincere gratitude to the staff and caregivers at Grace Presbyterian Village for their loving care. A memorial service in celebration of Marge's life will be held on Friday, August 14, 2015 at 11:00 am in the sanctuary of Preston Hollow Presbyterian Church, 9800 Preston Road, Dallas, TX. Memorials may be made to the Preston Hollow Presbyterian Church Foundation or EQUEST. Marge was a beautiful child of God who loved life and was at complete peace. We will cherish her memory forever.

NEWMAN, Peggy Sears On July 26, 2015, Peggy Sears Newman made it to Heaven just in time to host the morning show. Radio personality, performer, wife, mom, and "GG," Peggy was a star both in public and at home. A native of Dallas, Peggy grew up with her sisters, Doyle Ann and Laura, singing and mastering every instrument she could find. CBS cast seventeen-year-old Peggy to sing and play her guitar in the primetime variety show, "The Newcomers." From Hollywood back to Highland Park High School, Peggy loved cheering on the Scots, attending Young Life, and spending time with her high school girlfriends, the self-proclaimed "Rejects." Soon crowned "Miss Teenage Dallas," she was off to Ole Miss, where you could find her hanging out with friends at the Tri Delta house or shouting Hotty Toddy for the Rebels on the football field. After graduation, Peggy's father, Dr. A.D. Sears, heard about a radio contest on country western's KBOX 1480 to find a co-host for the famed Allan Peckand the "Peck and Peggy" show was born. For years, the twosome entertained the Metroplex on the morning commute, interviewing country music's legends from Waylon to Pride. Next stop, 103.7 KVIL, where Peggy hit the morning show scene as the News Director alongside Ron Chapman, Suzy Humphreys, and Larry Dixon. For twenty years, the KVIL crew dominated the Dallas airwaves. Throughout the 80's and 90's, Peggy also wowed crowds as a star of the Junior League Ball, a frequent soloist with the Vocal Majority Chorus, and a headliner in the Dallas Gridiron Show, where she roasted then-sitting Governor, Ann Richards. In 2007, Peggy rounded out a long career in radio with an induction into the Texas Radio Hall of Fame. Like a good country song, Peggy met Lynn Newman back at Hyer Elementary, and they reconnected at the Byron Nelson after college. Peggy and Lynn married in 1978, and it wasn't long before Abby, Ben, and Drew were on the scene. Peggy was out the door for KVIL at 3:30 a.m. and at the PTA by 10:00 a.m. She was the room mom, first grade play director, 8th grade dance chair, baseball booster, wrestling mom, and "Newman of the Year" award winner, otherwise known as Super Mom. Of all of her hats, she wore wife and mom most proudly. On Mother's Day of 2009, Peggy suffered a stroke. She fought fiercely through a year of inpatient rehab, learning to walk and talk again. Back in action for five very full years, she was a source of positive inspiration and endless wit. "GG" was wild about her grandchildren, Lucy and Rex, and rarely a day went by that she didn't spoil them with a surprise she scored off of E-Bay. Never bet against the Pegsternot in life, and certainly not on E-Bay. The night before a second, unexpected stroke, Peggy hosted a pool party at home with the grandkids. The next morning, she went straight to Heaven, where she's back on air, delivering the Good News. Thank you to the incredible community of family and friends that have supported and encouraged Peggy and the Newmans. A special thank you to Irma, Reba, and Jeanette, who acted as Peggy's caregivers for the past 5 years. Peggy is survived by her husband, Lynn; children, Abby and Peter Ruth, Ben Newman, and Drew and Ashley Newman; sisters, Doyle Ann Sears and Laura and Joe Milburn; grandchildren, Lucy and Rex Ruth; and nieces Mary Brynn and Joan Milburn. A celebration of Peggy's life will be held at Park Cities Pres-byterian Church, on Wednesday, July 29th, at 2:00 p.m., Rev. Ron Williams officiating, with reception to follow. Please make gifts to Park Cities Presbyterian Church or Baylor Institute for Rehabilitation.
