Margaret "Peggy" Young Obituary
Margaret "Peggy" Young passed away peacefully surrounded by her family on Saturday, January 8, 2011 in Newport Beach, CA. She was a long time resident of San Pedro. She is preceded in death by husband, Duke Ward. Peggy and Duke were married 36 years and had two daughters, Pam and Jeannine. Duke passed away in 1976. Later, she met Bud Young on a blind date and they married, and the two families, including Bud's son Bob and wife Janet happily joined together. Soon after their marriage, Bud retired as captain from the LA City Fire Dept, and Peggy retired from Los Angeles Harbor College. They traveled the world, golfed and enjoyed family and friends. They spent many summers fly fishing in West Yellowstone, MT. They were happily married and very much in love for 24 years, until Bud's passing in 2001. As a child, Peggy performed in many episodes of "The Little Rascals" with her dance troupe. She continued to dance her way through life, enjoying every step. She was a member of the Firebelles and Wives of Firemen. She also golfed weekly with the Harbor Park Women's Golf Club. She had a beautiful smile that lit up a room, and loved entertaining family and friends with wonderful dinner parties. We will miss her amazing spirit, her sense of humor and her passion for life, love and laughter. She was a blessing to all who knew her. She is survived by daughters, Pam (Mike) Furman and Jeannine (Don) Shearing; son, Bob (Janet) Young; grandchildren Kellie (Craig) Smith, Scott (Maria) Shearing, Patty Shearing, Allison Young and Melissa (Todd) Meleen; 11 great grandchildren; and her sister, Virginia Sanders. Funeral services will be Wednesday, January 12, 2011 at 11:00 AM at Green Hills Memorial Chapel in Rancho Palos Verdes. Please sign the guestbook at www.dailybreeze.com/obits.
