CUMBERLAND — Margaret “Peggy” Daley McLeod, 92, of Cumberland, died suddenly on Feb. 12.
She was born in Philadelphia on Jan. 23, 1923, the daughter of William and Catherine (Gallager) Daley.
McLeod lived a full and active life. She loved shopping, football, the Boston Red Sox and, most of all, her family.
She is survived by her husband of 66 years, Fredrick H. McLeod; her four children, Sandra, Donald, Catherine and Victoria; her sister, Theresa; 10 grandchildren; 18 great-grandchildren, with a 19th expected in August; five great- great-grandchildren, with a sixth expected in April; her “extra kid,” Carol, who was “grafted onto the family tree”; and numerous nieces and nephews.
There were no calling hours, but a memorial celebration of McLeod’s life is being planned for April.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests that any memorial donations in McLeod’s name be made to St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital.
The McLeod family would also like to express thanks to all who attended her, including the employees of Wal-Mart in Falmouth, who responded so quickly; the EMS personnel, who transported her; and the staff of Maine Medical Center, who provided such professional care.
Arrangements are under the direction of Funeral Alternatives, in Yarmouth.
