Peggy Hurtt Obituary

Margaret "Peggy" Hurtt, a woman who could bowl a strike with her eyes closed and solve a sudoku puzzle faster than you could count to 9, took her final bow on November 14, 2023. Born on Valentine's Day in 1958, in Maryland, Peggy was a woman who loved fiercely, laughed often, and never missed an opportunity to cheer her granddaughter on at a swim meet or soccer match. She left us from Glen Burnie, MD, and while we're all a little bit sadder, heaven just got a whole lot funnier.

Peggy was a woman who lived life with a vibrancy that shone a light on everyone she encountered. When she wasn't knee-deep in a good book, you could find her solving a challenging puzzle or having a "spa day" with her granddaughter. Her favorite season was football season and she was always willing to help refs call penalties during a Redskins - I mean Washington Football Team... or, sorry, Commanders game. Her love for football was only rivaled by her love for "watching her shows." And when we say "her shows," we mean high brow reality series such as The Kardashians or her beloved General Hospital.

Peggy was a loving mother to her daughters, Jennifer Usquiano and Stephanie Fortis. She was a doting Nana (or "Wobbuffet") to Genesis Usquiano, who inherited her grandmother's fiery spirit and quick wit. Peggy was a beloved sister to John and Nancy Rogers, and a cherished daughter of the late Margaret Sheila Rogers and John Rogers. Peggy's family was her rock, and she was theirs. Her selfless nature was evident in everything she did, from her endless support of her family to her willingness to lend a helping hand to a friend in need, and always keep "busses rollin'" at work.

In the words of the great Robin Williams, "You're only given a little spark of madness. You mustn't lose it." Peggy was the embodiment of this quote. Her spirited nature and zest for life were unparalleled, and she had a knack for making the ordinary seem extraordinary.

Peggy's life was a testament to the power of love, laughter, and living life to the fullest. She was a beacon of light in a sometimes-dark world, and her spirit will continue to shine brightly in the hearts of those who loved her. As we remember Peggy, let's not dwell on the sadness of her passing, but celebrate the joy she brought into our lives. After all, as Peggy would likely remind us, laughter really is the best medicine.

So, here's to Peggy Hurtt, a woman who knew how to celebrate even the smallest of moments. May we all strive to embrace life with the same passionate spirit, and humor that she did.

"Go for Peggy."

There was nothing that brought Peggy more joy than being Nana to her granddaughter and it is because of this we ask that in lieu of flowers family and friends consider donating to a GoFundMe that has been created as a trust for Genesis.https://gofund.me/04ec078e
