Margaret T. (Peggy) Emerson



Margaret (Peggy) T. Emerson, beloved daughter of the late Margaret Lawrence and niece of the late Clara Talley, died at New Hanover Regional Medical Center on January 5, 2013, surrounded by loved ones.

Peggy was born in Harnett County on August 22, 1935. After graduating from Campbell College, she held several administrative and secretarial positions, retiring from the City of Wilmington. Peggy had a zest for life and a great affection for her friends, family, and dogs. Her happiest days were spent while living 40 years on Harbor Island. Upon moving from the beach, she reestablished herself in Eastwood Village and enjoyed her many new devoted friends and experiences.

She leaves behind many cousins and friends who will miss her dearly.

Special thanks to the caring staff at NHRMC, and especially, Dr. Falyne Shapiro, MD

A private memorial service will be held at a later date.
