Margaret Donnelly McLeod Obituary
May 28, 1923 - December 27, 2017 Peggy passed away on December 27, 2017. She was a native Angeleno, the daughter of Dorcas M. and Charles E. Donnelly, Jr. She was predeceased by her parents, her brothers George S. Donnelly and Charles E. Donnelly III, and her husband Angus M. McLeod. Peggy is survived by her children: Susan K. Willen, Robert E. Kendig (Sue), Richard C. Kendig, and Margaret K. Brown (Scott), and the 7 grandchildren she adored: Glenn and Alex Willen, Libby and Robby Kendig, and Molly, Casey, and Chris Brown. She was a proud graduate of Marlborough School and Pomona College, where she nurtured her love of the sciences. She loved paddle tennis, swimming and sailing, all learned during childhood summers spent at her family home on Balboa Island. In addition to devoting herself to her family, Peggy devoted herself to the service of others, volunteering throughout her life. She began as a young wife and mother, going door to door for the March of Dimes, then gave her time to the Children's Hospital and the Assistance League. She served as President of the Junior League of Los Angeles and gave countless hours of energetic service to Good Samaritan Hospital, which culminated with many years as a member of the hospital's Board of Trustees. Private family services were held. In lieu of flowers, the family would appreciate donations in Peggy's name to her beloved Good Samaritan Hospital, 1225 Wilshire Blvd., Los Angeles, CA, 90017.
