I had the fortune of meeting Peggy during my sophomore year of high school (the 1999-2000 school year), when I would visit St. Mary's Home, as a part of my Sophomore Service Project. Peggy and I instantly hit off a friendship. We shared a love of board games, and I appreciated her quick wit, fun sense of humor, and interesting stories.
After my service project ended, I continued to visit Peggy, and we remained friends until she passed away. We developed a deep and genuine friendship. Although I came to St. Mary's to help the residents, perhaps God intended me to meet Peggy, so that she could help me. I learned so much about life and truth from her. Her deep Catholic faith and abiding belief in God, despite some very trying episodes in her life, were great inspirations to me. Peggy had a warm and caring heart. She was a treasure to all who knew her, and she possessed the sage wisdom, which can only be forged through the experience of life's various triumphs and tragedies.
Marguerite "Peggy" LaPine was truly a wonderful woman. While the death of a loved one is sad to those of us who are left behind (and Peggy truly will be mourned), death is the point at which the worthy enter their eternal reward. I have not met any more worthy of this reward than Peggy. The knowledge that Peggy is now in in a better place and with the God that she so loved is a great consolation.
Requiescat in pace, my dear friend.
