I am saddened to just now hear of Peggy's passing. She was truly a remarkable woman. The epitome of class and elegance. Having worked for Edie for a few years, I was lucky to have gotten to know Peggy well and saw firsthand the wonderful, devoted relationship that they both shared. May she Rest In Peace.

Dear Edie,
Although I never had the pleasure of meeting your mom, I feel I got to know her in some small way by reading her memoirs 'Lives Worth Living' and by getting to know you over this last year. You are such a wonderful, strong, caring and considerate 'real' person, I can only imagine you learned this from her. She must have been so proud of you!
Rest in peace Dear Peggy.
With love,

Your devotion to her, your commitment to ensuring her the best of care, your tireless efforts in memorializing her life and many triumphs, your unselfish philanthropic endeavors these things, Edie, are the tangible manifestations and true legacy Peggy has left behind.

Dear Edie,

My condolences on the passing of your mother. I learned of your mother's passing in the Miami Herald -- one of the most beautiful notices I have ever read.

I never had the pleasure of meeting your mom, but from reading about her, it is evident the apple did not fall far from the tree. How fortunate for me that I have worked with you, that I have experienced your razor sharp thinking, that I have seen your generosity to others through your philanthropy, and most enjoyably, have laughed with you -- through times that were "trying and appealing."

There is no doubt how proud you mom must be of you.

Dear Edie, I am sending you my loving prayer at this period of grief. Your Mother was such a caring and lovely person. It was a pleasure to spend time with her for the past several months.

Her amazing life story and her accomplishments were truly inspiring to me. The memorial service for your Mom was a beautiful tribute to her life.

Thank you for trusting me to care for your Mom. It was an honor to meet and work with you and Peggy. Your kindness and generosity cannot be explained in words. I think that you are an awesome daughter. Your loving patience & devotion to your Mom goes beyond words.

My love and support is with you. If ever you need me, I am always available to help in any way that I can.
Love, Kerralen Lewis, RN

Dear Edie and family,

My heartfelt sympathies and wishes for comfort as you say goodbye to your dear Peggy.

I only had a few face-to-face opportunities to meet Peggy personally over the years. Yet, through those meetings, through her book and through many important conversations with Edie, I felt blessed to have a real sense of who she was and her qualities as a true Eshet Chayil, a woman of valor.

There are many in life who are victims of their circumstances; and there are the relatively few among us who, in how they respond to trauma or misfortune, become exemplars of how to transform negative events into meaning, purpose and mission. What an inspiration and what a role model!

I want to share the notice that was sent to the Jewish Federation Board, Leadership and Staff last Friday. May Peggy's memory forever be as a blessing and may you all be comforted among the mourners of Zion and Jerusalem.

Much love,
Jacob Solomon


Dear friends,

Sadly, I'm writing to inform you of another recent loss in our community, the passing last Friday, December 29, 2017, of Peggy Tredler, beloved mother of our very dear friend and Federation Board member Edie Laquer.

Peggy was a remarkable and elegant woman who led a life filled with accomplishments, meaning and purpose. (Please take a moment to read the obituary below, which appeared in The Miami Herald.) Throughout her life and especially in recent years, she was cared for lovingly by Edie with endless attention and devotion. She is also survived by daughter Ashley Wyatt, three cherished grandchildren and seven adored great grandchildren. Private funeral services were held Sunday, December 31st.

As you will read, Peggy was a survivor of the Holocaust, a devoted wife, caring mother and doting grandmother and great grandmother. Her accomplishments were many. Her resilience and drive empowered her to become a successful businesswoman and, later in life, to write her autobiography not only to tell her own story, but also to provide hope to those faced with adversity in their lives. Publishing her book, Lives Worth Living, led Peggy onto yet another path in life, one which included book signings and public speaking engagements. She also became an accomplished artist.

Peggy Tredler will be missed by all who had the privilege of knowing her, but as Edie wrote to me Peggy is now where she wanted to be. May Edie and all of Peggy's family and friends be comforted among the mourners of Zion and Jerusalem and may Peggy's memory forever be as a blessing.

Shabbat shalom.

Edie: I am so sorry for your loss. You were a good daughter and a good friend to your mother. Ginny

Dearest Edie--

I just read the beautiful tribute to your mother in the obituary section of the Miami Herald. I am so sorry to hear this very sad news, and send my most sincere condolences to you and your family on your loss.

I know how much your mother meant to you and how deeply you must feel her loss. She was an amazing woman and lived a very long and special life. A true Woman of Valor. And you were the most devoted daughter imaginable. I hope that with time the pain of her loss will ease and you will be comforted by the many beautiful memories of your time together.

I also know that your mother's legacy will live on through your caring heart and strong sense of Tikkun Olam which was instilled in you as a child raised by Holocaust survivors. You learned firsthand that life can be very hard, and from that lesson you developed an inner sense of caring for those in need. You continue to honor your mother's memory as you carry that lesson forward into the future.

With love,
