NEW YORK CITY — Sr. Rose Maureen "Peggy" Dormer, 91, entered into eternal rest at De Paul Residence in Kittay House, Bronx, New York City, on May 10, 2016.

Born in Shamokin April 5, 1925, she was a daughter of the late Kyran and Rosemary (Feori) Dormer.

Her mother died young and she was raised by her beloved stepmother, Margaret "Quinny" Quinn.

She entered the Sisters of Charity of New York Sept. 8, 1945. She ministered at St. Agnes, Manhattan, New York City; St. Barnabas Elementary and High School, Bronx, New York City; St. Peter, Poughkeepsie, New York; St. Mary Star of the Sea, Brooklyn, New York City; St. John, White Plains, New York; Our Lady of Mercy, Port Chester, New York; St. Mary and St. Joseph, Yonkers, New York; and Trinity High School, Shiremanstown.

She was a graduate of St. Edwards High School. She went on to earn her bachelor's degree in history from the College of Mount Saint Vincent and her master's degree in counseling and psychology from Manhattan College.

She had an esteemed 50-year career in education in which she served as teacher, administrator and guidance counselor, imparting her love of teaching, sense of humor and compassion onto her students and colleagues.

In 2002, she moved to the Convent of Mary the Queen where she continued her devotion to God.

Peggy is survived by her brother, Kyran Dormer, and wife, Lois, of Hamilton Square, New Jersey; several nieces and nephews; and the Sisters of Charity with whom she has shared life for 71 years.
