Obituary for Margaret "Peggy" O'Boyle

Margaret Callahan O’Boyle (“Peggy”), 94, passed away peacefully on June 9, 2021, in Oak Park, Illinois. A Massachusetts native, Peggy graduated from Arlington High School and attended Wellesley College on full scholarship. She majored in Chemistry and graduated in 1948. She was married to James E. O’Boyle and raised six children in Birmingham, Michigan. Peggy later worked as a stock administrator at Bendix Corporation in Detroit, and in Shareholder Relations at Allied-Signal in Morristown, NJ. In retirement, Peggy lived in Wellesley for a few years, then in Charleston, South Carolina, and, more recently, in Oak Park, always near her children.

Peggy was known for her dry sense of humor, her love of reading, her independence and perfect posture. She was always a pillar of strength for her family.

She is survived by her children, Mark Callahan O’Boyle, Elizabeth “Betsey” O’Boyle, Megan Mary O’Boyle, Jane O’Boyle (William) Jordan, Marcy O’Boyle (Trevor) Jensen, and Midge O’Boyle Dinou. She is also survived by five grandchildren: Alice Grimm, Julie Grimm, William Grimm, Miles Dinou, and Penelope Dinou.

A private memorial and burial will take place at St. Stephen Cemetery in Framingham, Mass.
