Margaret Sheaffer Obituary

Margaret “Peggy” Sheaffer, 69, of Newport PA passed away peacefully at home surrounded by her
family. Peggy was the widow of George E. Sheaffer, also of Newport PA. Peggy was preceded in death by
her parents John and Doris George, and by her sisters Doris Kanagy and Martha Moyer.
Peggy is survived by a brother John George of Newport and her 3 children Gen (Kurt) Howell of
Millerstown, George (Billie) Sheaffer of Ickesburg and Geraldine (Landon) Sheaffer of Newport. In
addition to her children, she leaves behind 7 grandchildren (Brittany Chubb, Maddie Heller, Grace
Howell, Garrett Howell, Tyler Sheaffer, Layla Sheaffer and Eric Sheaffer) and 11 great grandchildren.
Peggy loved to spend time with family, especially around the holidays where she enjoyed cooking and
making pies. She would always make sure those coming to her table had a pie that they liked to eat. She
loved to watch her soaps on TV or her “olden” shows as she liked to call them. She loved listening to
country music, watching the RFD channel, jigsaw puzzles, crossword puzzles and quilting. She was also
known to fancy a ride in Gen’s VW Beetle convertible, even if it was to one or her many doctor’s
appointments or for treatments. It was the simple things in life that Peggy enjoyed and appreciated.
Peggy had a stubborn side that was well known by those that knew her best. Even during her recent
health struggles, she was a spitfire when she needed to be, but also appreciative of the love and care
that her kids provided her during the last 18 months. She was a strong woman that battled courageously
until the end, and the grace she showed while enduring the horrible hand that was dealt her is to be
admired and respected. She may now rest in peace with Junior, as they are now together again.
A private family viewing will be held prior to the graveside service. The graveside services will be on
November 25 th at Noon at the Landisburg cemetery. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that
donations to Hospice of Central Pennsylvania or the Perry County Animal Rescue be made in Peggy’s
