Obituary for Margaret A. "Peggy" Palange

Margaret Ann Palange
December 11, 1942 to July 27, 2020

Margaret (Peggy) Ann Palange of Lynn MA passed away on July 27, 2020 at the age of 77.

Peggy was born in Atlanta, GA on December 11, 1942, the first child of Ralph (Raffaele) Carmen Palange and Margaret Virginia (Chisolm) Palange. Peggy was the sister of Stephen Ralph Palange and the aunt of Victoria Newcomb and Isabella Palange.

Peggy’s parents and brother predeceased her.

Peggy grew up in Cincinnati, Ohio, graduating from McNicholas High School in 1960 and the University of Cincinnati. Peggy was an avid photographer, and while at UC, Peggy documented the career of Neil Armstrong, as a professor (1971 to 1979.) Peggy’s photos are featured on the University of Cincinnati Neil Armstrong Commemorative Website and live in the university’s archives. Her photos are also in books about Neil Armstrong registered with the Library of Congress. Peggy worked for the Cincinnati Enquirer during the 1970’s as a photojournalist.

Peggy had previously worked at Posternak, Blankstein & Lund, LLP, a law firm in Boston, as a Legal Assistant.

Peggy’s ancestors came from the mountain town of Roccasicura, Italy. Her father, Ralph, was born there and traveled to the U.S. at the age of eight. After Ralph graduated from Tufts and Harvard, his work as a commissioned officer for the U.S. government in public health offered Peggy and her family the opportunity to travel and experience many adventures together.

As with most Italian families, Peggy had a large network of aunts, uncles, and cousins whom she stayed connected with. A remarkable conversationalist, Peggy was always keenly interested in talking with others. She enjoyed times spent with family at annual picnics, dinners and holiday events.

Peggy will be dearly missed. Peggy was passionate about caring for animals. Donations in her name can be made to the New England Animal Rescue, 1090 Washington St, Hanover MA 02339.

Oh my friend Peggy. I just now read of your passing. I tried to reach you and couldn’t .
I will always cherish our 30 yr friendship.
You taught me how to shop at Filene’s Basement. You were my cat lady who helped me care for my stray cat, Athena. I met you at Della Sport and you said you’d help me w moral support while the stray cat healed from a broken pelvis.
You did and Athena lived for 20 yrs.
Your independence was enviable. Tthank you for your friendship, intelligence and our conversations.
What a loving and devoted daughter you were to your parents all those years caring for them and the traveling back to your job at the Prudential in Boston.
What a great advocate for cats.

I am very sorry to hear of Peggy’s passing. I was a former co-worker of hers from Posternak and I always enjoyed having conversations with her. She was a very interesting and kind woman. My deepest sympathies to her family and friends.

To Peggy, one of your favorite poems,
Do not stand at my grave and weep,
I am not there, I do not sleep.
I am in a thousand winds that blow,
I am the softly falling snow.
I am the gentle showers of rain,
I am the fields of ripening grain.
I am in the morning hush,
I am in the graceful rush
Of beautiful birds in circling flight,
I am the starshine of the night.
I am in the flowers that bloom,
I am in a quiet room.
I am in the birds that sing,
I am in each lovely thing.
Do not stand at my grave and cry,
I am not there. I do not die.
We will all miss our visits with you and having you right around the corner. Rest in peace, dear friend.
Judith, Anthony, Sara, Katie & Nora 🌹🌾🌹
