"Peggy" Margaret L. Hershey, 57, passed away on Saturday, February 18, 2012. A native of New Castle, PA, she had been a resident of Hampton for most of her life.
She had worked for Pepsi Cola Bottling Co. in the early 1980's and most recently worked for Howmet Casting Alcoa as an administrative assistant in the purchasing department.
Peggy is preceded in death by her parents, Patrick and Carol Joyce; and her sister, "Patty" Patricia K. Joyce. She is survived by her husband of 35 years, Dana J. Hershey; son, Dana J. Hershey, II and wife, Tina; daughter, Ryan LaDelle; sister, Suzanne Rackley; several nieces and nephews; aunts, Patsy and Dorothy; her special supportive friend, Sue Johnson; and brothers-in-law, Marvin T. Hershey and wife, Sue, and Paul D. Hershey and wife, Cheryl.
Peggy also loved and adored her four legged furry friends, Ziggey, Winston, and Mr. G., who she cared for during their lives. Marley and Chewie were her current companions and we know they too will miss her.
The family thanks Dr. Kruger and the staff at Virginia Oncology, especially nurse Laurel. Special recognition is given to Dr. Dennis Cruff who went above and beyond for Peggy's care during her illness. And a special thank you to Peggy's support group.
