When she was 13 years old, Peggy and her family moved to Los Angeles, California. She met her future husband William J. O'Neill at a party in Hollywood. Bill and Peggy were married July 2, 1949 in Los Angeles. They moved to Riverside in 1951, Orange in 1963, and Sun City in 1988. Peggy was the first school secretary at La Purisima Catholic School in El Modena and a real estate agent in Orange, but her best and most favorite job was her family. Peggy learned to play golf after retiring to Sun City. She won multiple Niners Golf Tournaments. She enjoyed bridge, knitting, crocheting, sewing, needlepoint, and gardening.

She is also survived by her cat Sammy, several nieces and nephews, and dear friends, especially childhood friend Ruth Wagner. She was preceded in death by her husband of 57 years, Bill, her parents, her brothers, Tony, Jerry, and George, and her sister Wilma "Billie" Morris. Funeral Mass will be celebrated by longtime family friend Fr. Joseph Cornely on Tuesday, October 28 at 10:30am at St. Vincent Ferrer, 27931 Murrieta Road, Sun City.
