She is survived by her two sons; Mark Butcher of the West End, PA and Michael Butcher of Pittsburgh, PA; as well as her daughter-in-law, Marie Morgan and her two granddaughters, Maggie Butcher and Katie Butcher of Green Tree, PA, whom she considered her two angels. Peggy was born on December 28, 1939 in Madison, Wisconsin. She was a 1958 graduate of Crafton High School, Crafton, PA and a 1962 graduate of Allegheny College with degrees in both Psychology and English. Peggy had a love for writing that was exemplified in many different facets during her outstanding career. She retired after more than 25 years as the Publisher/Managing Editor of The Green Tree Times, where she consistently focused on positive and uplifting news to pass on to her readers. Peggy was greatly involved in numerous activities and various organizations, such as Animal Advocates, to enhance and better her community. She fervently strived to find the good in others and had a lasting, positive affect on everyone she met. Peggy was routinely willing to give helpful advice and was a great listener. She was an avid reader with eclectic tastes and enjoyed spending time with a good book and her two loving cats. Peggy will be greatly missed by her family and countless friends, including those she cherished, loved, and considered family for 50 years from the Chatham Village community. Her compassionate spirit will be dearly missed. Due to circumstances surrounding the current pandemic, a celebration of Peggy’s life with family and friends will be held at a later time, yet to be determined by the family.
