Margaret "Peg" Ormsby died peacefully at her home at the age of ninety-five.

Peg was born in Brooklyn, NY, the third of four siblings. Peg married John J. "Jack" Ormsby in 1942 and together they raised six children. The family resided in White Plains, NY and Bridgeton, NJ before moving to Los Angeles. Peg and Jack retired to Redondo Beach.

Predeceased by her beloved husband Jack, after sixty-one years of marriage and son, Gary Ormsby, Peg is survived by her children: John Ormsby (Jane), Maureen Kozoll (Lawrence), Therese Wolf (William), Margaret Zelenay (James), and Regina Gassner (Randall); nineteen grandchildren, seventeen great-grandchildren (and counting), and many nieces and nephews.

A devout Catholic and member of St. Lawrence Martyr Church, Peg's faith and love of family were the hallmarks of her life. Her courage and fortitude were inspirational, as were her patience and empathy. She rejoiced in her large family and they in her. She will be greatly missed.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated on Saturday, September 17, 2011 at 11:30 a.m. in the Chapel of the Risen Christ at Holy Cross Cemetery, Culver City.
