Margaret Stansbery Obituary
Stansbery, Margaret
1931 - 2018
Margaret "Peg" Dorothea Vanderzee Stansbery, passed away January 17, 2018 in Columbus, Ohio. She was born in Tarrytown, NY to the late George Boyle Vanderzee and Dagny Petersen in 1931. One of Margaret's greatest joys was teaching. She served in the Columbus City School District for 27 years and was a proud union member. She was a devout Christian and a member of St. Andrew Presbyterian Church for 40 years. In 1957 she, together with her husband Leslie E. Stansbery, attended the Ecumenical Institute in Geneva. This framed her global perspective and commitment to fight for the oppressed. She was quick to laugh, share her opinion, and loved sports. Peg treasured her family and spending time with her grandchildren. She will be missed by her husband of 60 years, Leslie Stansbery; sons, Mark (Yoshie), Paul and Todd (Nancy) Stansbery; and a daughter, Joy (Mike) Sickles.
