Margaret “Peggy” Bailey, 82, died peacefully on Nov. 27, 2014. She had vascular dementia and had suffered a stroke 7 months earlier. Peggy lived many places including Florida, Germany, Boston, Madison, NJ (where she raised her family), Washington, DC (where she retired from the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace), Newport Beach, California (her paradise), Chestnut Hill, PA (where she doted on her two beloved grandchildren), and most recently with her daughter in Chesterton, Indiana (where she spent her final two years). But Peggy always considered herself a New Yorker where she was born and raised. A fashionable theatergoer, avid bridge player, and voracious reader Peggy is remembered by her many godchildren, nieces, nephews, and grandnieces as a “beautiful, special, and unique woman” with “fabulous homes just like her” … “one hell of a lady.” Peggy is survived by her brothers Sarsfield, Paul, Danny, and Peter, daughter Trish, son Adam, and grandchildren CJ and Anna. A celebration of her life will be held in Concord, MA on December 13.
