Peggy grew up in Baltimore on Tremont Road and lived her entire 92 years not far from her original roots. In 1952, she married Chuck Brannan and later had two daughters. She resided in Catonsville and Ellicott City throughout her married life. She worked doing various secretarial jobs prior to having her daughters and worked at CCC (Catonsville Community College) as a secretary to the president of the college until her retirement. Peggy loved her time spent at CCC and had many fond memories with many wonderful friends. Peggy and Chuck traveled to many exciting places which included England, Ireland and many trips with family and friends in the United States.
She loved her family with all her heart! Her husband, daughters, sons-in-law, grandchildren and great-grandchildren, as well as, extended family meant the world to her. After her husband’s passing, Peggy wanted to make lasting memories, so she took the family to amazing trips to Riviera Maya Mexico, Punta Cana and Hawaii. These memories are something that will always hold a special place in each family member’s heart. She was kind, thoughtful, generous, caring and loving beyond measure. Peggy held her faith at the core of her values. She was a member of St. Paul Lutheran Church in Catonsville for more than fifty years. She always loved her church family and still has many cherished friends at St. Paul.
Peggy enjoyed being with her family first and foremost. Knitting, crocheting, cross stitch, needlepoint, reading novels, playing cards and listening to Johnny Mathis brought her joy.
Her memory will always be imprinted on the hearts of those that loved her. Peggy truly made a wonderful lasting impression on each individual she met for her loving and kind spirit and for that we are all truly blessed!
