Robert E. Barrett | Supervisor
Margaret “Peggy” Bertrand passed away peacefully on August 14, 2018 with her loving family by her side.
Peggy was born on November 16, 1935 in Midway, PA, the daughter of the late Frank & Irene Lukan. In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her loving and devoted husband, Deane L. Bertrand and her beloved son, Thomas Bertrand.
Peggy is survived by her son, William Bertrand (Joey & Meghan) and her son, Harry “Buddy” Bertrand (Felicia). Also her grandchildren Hilary (Ben) Campbell & Chad (Melissa) Bertrand and her two great grandchildren Avery & Karsyn, who she adored and loved to the moon and back. Her Wednesday lunch dates with these two is what she lived for!
Peggy worked as a telephone operator for Bell Telephone where she met the love of her life, Deane. They made their home in Burgettstown, PA and raised 3 boys. Peggy was full of life! She is well known as the first female wrestling referee in the state of Pennsylvania. She took this role very seriously and ensured she could support her calls, no matter what! Peggy enjoyed spending summers in Deep Creek Lake, MD boating, having campfires and happy hours with the Deep Creek Gang. She also spent several years in Bradenton, FL making new friends and memories she cherished. She was a volunteer at Blake Memorial Hospital in the cardiac unit as a runner for the surgeons in the OR. She took great pride in helping others.
Peggy moved back to Pittsburgh in 2011 where she made her home at the Masonic Village, Sewickley PA. She quickly made many new friends and jumped in to help wherever she was needed. She sat at the front desk every Monday morning greeting visitors, she made countless puzzles in the puzzle room, and played bingo and cards weekly.
Peggy continued to have a sense of humor and a pleasant demeanor in spite of her illness. She will be missed by all of us and will be remembered as a caring and loving Mother, Gram & GiGi Gram.
At the request of Peggy, there will be no public viewing. The family will hold a cocktail reception to celebrate her life and receive family and friends at The Hyeholde Round Room on Tuesday, August 21, 2018 from 6-9 PM.
