Known to her family and friends as Peggy, she was the eldest daughter of the late Nancy Dow of Portland, and the eldest granddaughter of her grandparents from Falkirk, Scotland.

She is survived by three sons, one daughter and a small army of grandchildren and great grandchildren.

Peggy grew up in Portland and met her husband Bill at her first job working at Hay’s Drugstore on Upper Congress Street in Portland.

Peggy was very active in the community, volunteering at St. Andrew’s Church in Framingham, Massachusetts, Sherborn Swim Team, Little League, Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts and a variety of community causes sponsored by the Dover Sherborn Regional school system.
