Mary Margaret Faulstich Webber "Peggy" CHARLOTTE - Mary Margaret "Peggy" Faulstich Webber, 60, of Charlotte, NC, passed away on Sunday, May 8, 2016, surrounded by her family. Peggy was born on April 6, 1956, in Asheville, NC, and shortly after moved to Baltimore, MD, where her parents and her siblings were born. Her family moved to Charlotte in 1966 because of her father's job, and she graduated from Charlotte Catholic High School in 1974. She attended CPCC and Appalachian State University before graduating from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte with a degree in Anthropology. She married David Webber in 1985. Peggy was always an advocate for giving children the best possible start to life. She ran a home daycare for 10 years in order to stay home with her three children before they started school. After many years of volunteering as a La Leche League leader, Peggy became an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant in 1995 and worked for Carolinas Healthcare System helping new mothers learn to breastfeed. Peggy's varied interests always kept her life busy and joyful. She was an avid animal lover, always owning dogs, rabbits, and birds, as well competing in dog shows. She often volunteered with many organizations, including Mensa's Gifted Youth program. In her free time, she enjoyed sewing, crocheting, cooking, making jewelry, and spoiling her grandson. Her children were always her most important priority, and she was extremely supportive of their activities. She attended every game, every concert, and every musical. She volunteered as both a Girl Scout and a Boy Scout leader. She even continued her involvement as her children attended college outside of Charlotte and started lives on their own. Peggy is survived by her parents, Jerry and Helen Faulstich; three of her siblings - Betsy Freedman, Jim Faulstich, and Sallie Cune; her three children - Kate Angermeier, Geoff Webber, and Gregg Webber; her son-in-law, Billy Angermeier; and her grandson, Max Angermeier. A memorial mass will be offered for her at St. Matthew Catholic Church, 8015 Ballantyne Commons Pkwy., Charlotte, NC 28277 on Saturday, May 28, at 11am. In lieu of flowers, please send a donation to the Mothers' Milk Bank through the WakeMed Foundation (WakeMed Foundation, 3000 New Bern Ave., Raleigh, NC 27610); include "Mothers' Milk Bank" in the check memo line.
