Peg was born on May 27, 1963 in Detroit, Michigan and passed away at the age of 56 on Saturday, January 25, 2020 in Ann Arbor, Michigan after a hard-fought battle with cancer.

Peg was a loving and devoted mother, daughter, sister and friend. She created a loving home, had an endless supply of love and energy for her daughter and didn’t miss a chance to participate in her daughter’s school, activities, or sports life. For her friends and family, she was always there when she was needed, had a huge heart, and was one of the bravest souls we knew. The world was a much better place with her in it. She will be deeply missed by those who knew her.

She is survived by her daughter, McKenna May Pfeffer; her parents, Ron and May Pfeffer; her siblings, Daniel Pfeffer, Kathie (Kevin) Green, and Jim (Amy) Pfeffer; her niece and nephews, Megan (Brad) Lookabaugh, Andrew Green, Daniel Green, Zachary Pfeffer, Benjamin Pfeffer, and Alexander Pfeffer; many other close, loving family members; and her dogs, Hank and Sammy.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made in her honor to the Humane Society of Huron Valley; 3100 Cherry Hill Rd, Ann Arbor, MI 48105 or to the U-M Rogel Cancer Center; 1500 East Medical Center Drive, CCGC 6-303, Ann Arbor, MI 48109-0944.

The services have been cancelled. Please leave a condolence or memory for the family.

To the Pfeffer Family,

My sincere condolences for the loss of Peggy and apologies for not writing sooner. Having had the good fortune of getting to know her through time spent with Jim and the rest of your wonderful family years ago, the news of her passing hit me particularly hard and I've been struggling to write something meaningful. Please know how much I cherish the memories of spending time with you all back in day when we all lived in Livonia. I have so many warm memories of sitting with you in your family room laughing about some crazy story or joke that has somehow taken on a new life of its own! Although Peggy was usually the youngest one in the room at the time, she was always right in there with here own quick wit and comebacks! But what I mostly remember about Peggy is that she was such a warm, kind, genuine person that was always quick to smile or laugh (even at our dumbest jokes). I always felt that she was special, and having read some of the memories on this board only confirms my belief!
Please know how grateful I am for the time that I got to spend your company. Peggy's warmth and captivating smile will always live on in my memory.
All the best,
Jeff Brenner

The thing that I'll remember most about Aunt Peg is her big laugh and her amazing sense of humor. From playing games with us at the holidays when we were little to catching up when far too much time had passed between visits as we grew up, I can hear her laugh and see her big smile so clearly. She was kind, funny, and just such a good person, with the warmest heart. Aunt Peg was always there for her family, and was so dedicated to being the absolute best mom to McKenna every single day. We will never forget you, Aunt Peg, and will keep moving forward knowing that you'll be there laughing with us at every holiday, birthday, and milestone. We love you so much.

Peggi was such a wonderful, caring, loving person. I feel very blessed to have been able to spend time with her and all of her wonderful family. She was such a loving, amazing Mom to McKenna and such a loving aunt to our children. Everyone who met Peg could tell what a great person she was. I see so many of the same qualities in Peg, McKenna and Kathie (and Dan and Jim) which is a great tribute to Ron and May. I will miss Peggi very much.

Aunt Peg was an incredibly kind and genuine person. I was so lucky to be able to spend time with her, McKenna, and Uncle Dan during my time in Ann Arbor - it was such a comfort to have family close by being so far from home. I will miss her sense of humor and her fundamental goodness, which was so clear to see for anyone who spent time with her. We love you and miss you Aunt Peg.

As I read through this Book of Memories I see the consistent thoughts and feelings that we all had for Peg. She touched us all in a very deep way and likely didn’t even know it - that was her modest, unassuming way. Whenever I close my eyes and think of her, I can see those bright blue, happy eyes looking back at me. We weren’t able to be together all the time with the distance between our homes but I was able to spend some time over the last few years at her home, both with her and after she passed. I noticed a few poetry books long-since stored away and want to offer these two to all, both for my sister and, recently, our Mom:

She is Gone By David Hawkins

You can shed tears that she is gone or you can smile because she lived.
You can close your eyes and pray that she’ll come back to you or you can open your eyes and see all she’s left.
Your heart can be empty because you can’t see her or you can be full of the love you shared.
You can turn your back on tomorrow and live yesterday or you can be happy for tomorrow because of yesterday.
You can remember her and only that she’s gone or you can cherish her memory and let it live on.
You can cry and close your mind, be empty and turn your back or you can do what she’d want, smile, open your eyes, love and go on.

Peg might also say:
I’d like the memory of me to be a happy one.
I’d like to leave an after glow of smiles when life is done.
I’d like to leave an echo whispering softly down the ways, of happy times and laughing times and bright sunny days.
I’d like the tears of those who grieve to dry before the sun of happy memories that I leave when life is done.

I❤️U Peg
( I guess the holding one leg thing was our “thing”😜)
