Margaret L. Tagg

AGE: 82 • Hockessin

Margaret "Peg" Tagg, 82, of Hockessin, DE., passed away on March 15, 2014, surrounded by her loving family. Born on July 27, 1931 in Elmira, NY., Peg was the daughter of the late Frederick and Lucy Mold.

She was employed as a teaching assistant in the Horseheads School district until her retirement in 1991. Peg thoroughly enjoyed the time spent with her close friends, Mary and Joe Belloma, Bruce and Gail Kelts, and Georgina Hinckley. Peg was deeply thankful for those friends and family who supported her throughout her life.

She is survived by her three children: her daughters, Teresa (David) Roach of Hockessin, Delaware with whom she has lived since 1999, and Kathleen (Jerry) Donahue of Kernersville, North Carolina; and her son Michael (Delores) Tagg of Beltsville, Maryland. Other survivors include her cherished grandchildren Kristen and Greg Roach, Ryan and Justin Donahue, and Kyerra Heyliger as well as several nieces, nephews, and extended family members. In addition to her parents, Peg was preceded in death by her loving husband Charles Tagg and her brothers, Francis and John Mold.

At her request, a memorial mass and celebration of her life will be held at Saint Mary's Church, Elmira, New York at a later date. A private burial service will be held at that time. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Seasons Hospice, 4755 Ogletown- Stanton Road, Newark, Delaware 19718 or to the Ronald McDonald House of Delaware, 1901 Rockland Road, Wilmington, DE 19803.
