Peggy Canepa sadly passed away due to Covid while in rehab after surgery. She was born May 20, 1925 in Lodi and raised on a ranch in Ripon. While growing up on the ranch there was no running water in the home so Peggy had to use an outhouse until she left home after graduating from Ripon High. At age 9 she was sent to Bret Hart for 9 months to "fatten" her up in order to prevent her from getting TB and during that time she only saw her parents on Sundays.
Peggy worked in Stockton until she was set up on a blind date and 2 years later married Virgil Canepa. They were married for 45 years until his passing in 1994.
Peggy lived in her home for 66 years and was a homemaker all her married life. When her kids left home she took up golf. Golf became her passion as well as playing bridge. She joined the Woodbridge Country Club at age 77 and truly treasured her time at "The Club" as she fondly referred to it. She was able to golf until she was 88.
Peggy is survived by her son, Gary and his wife Donna; her daughter, Joan and her granddaughter, Kristi Nyamathi, her husband Vinny and their daughters Kayla and Violet; and granddaughter Staci Halac, her husband Jason and their sons Dean and Connor.
Per her request there will not be any services.

I knew Peg from being a girlfriend to her daughter Joan since high school. She was always very nice to me wanting to know what I was up to. Peg had this wonderful laugh that just tickled me. My brother Richard and I sent our thoughts and prayers to all the Canepa’s

I enjoyed many bridge games with Peggy. She was sharp and witty. I will miss her. She was one of Lodi’s long living legends. Her many stories about Lodi in the “ good old days” made every meeting more interesting.
