Margaret Louise "Peggy" Berry

Margaret Louise "Peggy" Berry was an amazing wife, mother, and grandmother. She left this life peacefully in her sleep on February 9, 2014 in Stanwood, WA.

Peggy was born in Seattle on January 24, 1926, the daughter of William and Pauline Davis. She attended St. Anne's School and Holy Names Academy in Seattle, and worked as a clerk in the Exchange Building downtown.

After marriage, Peggy was an avid homemaker until she took employment in the Bellevue School District. In her 23 years with the district, she was promoted through the ranks from a part-time cashier to the kitchen manager of Newport High School.

Peggy is survived by her children, Mike Berry (Wendy Leavitt), Sheila Donoghue (Coll), and her grandchildren, Ryan, Owen, Mackenna Carruthers (Patrick), and Collin. She was preceded in death by her husband of 53 years, Robert Berry.

A Mass of the Ashes will be held at noon, March 1, 2014, at St. Cecilia's Catholic Church in Stanwood, WA.

Memorials can be made to Providence Hospice in Everett, WA or to Children's Regional Medical Center, Seattle.
