Margaret E. Roulier (Peggy) was born in Sundern, Germany on June 29, 1926 to Johannes and Elizabeth Willecke. She had three brothers and a privileged upbringing. On September 9, 2013 she passed away after a hard fight against cancer. Peggy loved life even with all its ups and downsof which she had her fair share. She survived a world war, married Robert A. Roulier (1923-1981) afterwards and became a fiercely patriotic American. She spent her next 26 years as an Army wife and raised two children: Raymond (1955-1997) and Denise (1956). She and Bob retired in Tucson and after Bob passed away, Peggy attended the University of Arizona and earned her B.A. in Liberal Arts majoring in German Literature. She then worked for an insurance firm for 12 years. She lost her son and granddaughter, Kelly Snow (1985-2010) before their time. Peggy is survived by her daughter and son-in-law, Doug Snow, as well as her long-time companion, Leo Bernu and her best little dog friend, Fritz. She will be remembered by all as a very social yet independent person, who was always physically active, ardent golfer, dressed stylishly and was so young at heart, that she refused to grow oldright up to the end. She was naturally "cool." Peggy will be laid to rest with Bob in the peaceful Old Post Cemetery on Fort Huachuca. Over the years, she belonged to several organizations and clubs including the Elks, American Legion, VFW, bowling leagues, etc. gathering many friends. Peggy spent her last six years outraged over what is happening to our country and what is going on in D.C.; she would have wanted to know how it all turns out
