DOHERTY MARGARET (PEGGY) December 3, 1906 - March 6, 2003 Passed away peacefully at age 96. Peggy embraced life and lived hers with great style, spunk and optimism. A native of Boston, she received her Master's Degree in Education and worked for the Boston Public Schools for 32 years as a remedial reading teacher. A truly gifted artist, she exhibited and sold her Chinese brush paintings throughout the U.S. Much admired for her beauty, elegance, and fashion sense, she liked nothing more than dressing up "to the nines" for any and all occasions. After her husband's untimely death after only eleven years of marriage, Peggy lovingly raised her three children and considered her greatest accomplishment to be seeing them graduate from college. She was the dearest, sweetest mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, aunt and friend. We celebrate her long and fruitful life and will remember her with great love. Survivors include daughter Grace Andes (John) of Belmont, sons Ted (Susan) of San Francisco and David (Linda) of Los Altos, two grandchildren and three great-grandchildren. She also leaves behind dear nephews, nieces and treasured friends. Sincerest thanks to the entire staff of Menlo Park Place for their wonderful care and kindness to Peggy during the past two years. In accordance with her wishes, there will be no services. She requested that her remains benefit humanity and, as such, be dedicated to research at the Stanford University School of Medicine. In lieu of flowers contributions can be made to: Samaritan House, 401 N. Humboldt, San Mateo, CA 94401.
