Peggy Jeanne Donohue Soric

Peggy Jeanne Donohue Soric, 86, of Springfield, Mo., died March 15, 2014, in Kansas City, Mo., after a very long illness.

She was born in Moberly, Mo., and lived most of her young adult life in St. Louis, Mo., where she worked for the St. Louis-San Francisco Railway. It was there that she met her husband, Milton G. Soric, who preceded her in death in 2003. The couple started a family in Dellwood, Mo., and then moved with the Frisco to Springfield, Mo. in 1964, where Peggy worked for Burge Hospital as director of volunteers and later as a newspaper writer, columnist and reporter for the Springfield Leader and Press in the 1970s, '80s, and '90s.

Peggy is survived by her daughter, Susan and partner Claire, both of Chicago, IL; her daughter, Jennifer of Kansas City, Mo.; grandchildren, Isobel and Harry of Chicago; and nephews and nieces.
