Margaret "Peggy" A. DeMone

April 6, 1937 ~ August 7, 2023 (age 86) 86 Years Old


Margaret Anne DeMone (Peggy) passed away surrounded by the New Hampshire woods that she loved while being cared for at the Jack Byrnes Palliative and Hospice Center in Lebanon. Peggy was born to Archibald George DeMone and Isabelle Alice DeMone (Klim) on April 6, 1937, in Medford, Massachusetts.

Peggy grew up in Stoughton, Massachusetts and graduated from high school in 1955. She attended Bridgewater State Teaching College where she earned a BA (1959) and a Master’s degree in teaching.

Peggy taught first grade for 35 years at Chemung Hill Elementary School (now Hansen Elementary) where she participated in the Stoughton Teachers Association and represented the teachers as a member of the Stoughton School Committee. A former colleague and friend of 55 years attested that “Peggy’s students were all well prepared for the next level of education” and that “she had many friendships throughout the school system”.

When she was younger, Peggy loved to travel during her breaks from teaching and shared her explorations with her students, including a 1967 summer in Japan, Hawaii, and California.

She was a devoted New England Patriots fan, attending home games as a season ticket holder for many years. Peg watched every game, collected Patriots team gear, and had enough Patriots Christmas tree ornaments to decorate a whole tree!

Peggy enjoyed spending time with family and friends throughout her life at the “camp” O’ Marge on Blaisdell Lake in Sutton, NH. One of her favorite things to do was to sleep out on the screened in porch under the quilted blankets. She taught her nieces and nephews how to water ski and enjoy all types of lake activities. Peg served on the Blaisdell Lake Property Owners Association for decades, protecting and preserving the lake for all to enjoy.

Importantly, Aunt Peg was the aunt who kept in touch with her adult nieces and nephews, enjoying their children with them as “Great” Aunt Peg.

Margaret was predeceased by her brother George DeMone (July 1, 2023). She is survived by her brother A. James DeMone and his wife Sandra DeMone, as well as George’s wife Joan DeMone. Aunt Peg leaves nieces: Gretchen DeMone, Jaimee DeMone, and Jennifer D’Amico. She leaves four nephews: Greg DeMone, Jim DeMone, Jay Czaja and Jon Czaja. She was known as “Great” Aunt Peg to 9 great nieces and nephews.
