Margaret B. "Peggy" (Farley) Paine, of Boston, formerly Brookline passed away on February 8, 2021 at the age of 68 in the company of her close family. Born in Lowell, she was the daughter of the late Edward P. & Gertrude M. (Dalton) Farley. She was educated in Lowell Public Schools, and was a graduate of Lowell High School, Class of 1969. Together with her husband Stanley, they raised their family in Brookline. In addition to her devoted groom of over 46 years, she is survived by her three sons: Kyle of Boston, Sean & his wife Beth of Northborough, and Matthew of New York, NY, as well as two young grandchildren and many loving (and loved) nieces and nephews. She was the dear sister of the late Mary Susan (Farley) McHale, Peter M. Farley, Edward A. Farley and Nancy (Farley) LaFerriere. Her family will remember her fondly for her unconditional love, sweet voice, and angelic blue eyes. A professional auctioneer for over three decades, Peggy was at one point the most well-traveled female auctioneer in the Commonwealth, traversing the highways conducting hundreds of foreclosure sales, and doing so with the same empathy and kindness she exhibited in all aspects of her life. In retirement, she realized her dream of traveling the world with Stanley, took up motorcycling, and vacationed in Arizona during her last few winters. Due to the current health crisis, funeral services are private. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Massachusetts Association of Mental Health (www.mamh.org
). Her family looks forward to a fond in-person remembrance of Peggys life later this year, with loved ones and friends. Levine Chapels, Brookline 617-277-8300 www.levinechapel.com
