Her first husband was Lt. William H. Turner - US Naval Academy, class of 1944, who was killed in action in WW II.

Peg married G. Robert Spaulding in 1947 and together they raised their family of three sons in Hawthorne.

After being widowed again in 1979, Peg remarried for the third time in 1991 to Cmdr George G. Peery, USN(ret).
Cmdr Peery was also a member of the USNA class of '44. They resided in Annapolis, MD until his death in 2005.

Peg's life, beyond raising her family, was dedicated to numerous community volunteer efforts. She was a founding member of the Hawthorne Homeowners and Taxpayers Association; she taught Sunday school at the Hawthorne Gospel Church; she served for many years on the Boards of Directors of the Westmont Home of Wayne, NJ and the Salvation Army Corps of Paterson, NJ. For many years she provided support to Mr Spaulding in leadership roles with the Rotary Club of Paterson, where he served as club President and then as International District (#749) Governor for Bergen and Passaic Co., NJ plus the island of Bermuda. Once membership became available to women, Peg was amongst the first women in the world to join Rotary on their own behalf and served with both the Paterson, NJ and Annapolis, MD clubs.

Survivors: Peg will be forever lovingly remembered by her three sons - William Turner and wife Nancy of Bethlehem, PA, Robert and wife Gail Spaulding of Plummer, ID and George and wife Chris Spaulding of Fairlawn, NJ - plus seven grandchildren and six great-grandchildren.

Memorial services to be announced at a future date. In lieu of flowers the family requests donations be made in Peg's name to the Alzheimer's Association or The Salvation Army Corp of Paterson, NJ.
