Margaret E. “Peggy” Shupe, 95, of Catawissa passed away Oct. 2, 2019, at Emmanuel Center for Nursing in Danville.She was born Jan. 16, 1924, in Maddensville, a daughter of the late William and Jessie (Fraker) Linn.
She relocated to Catawissa from Norristown, 30 years ago with her husband, Philip, after he retired from the car sales business there. She worked alongside her husband in the of-fice of his business. They traveled extensively together and were active in many civic and business-related organizations.
Always known for her hospitality, Peggy loved being grandmom to her grandchildren and their friends as they grew. There was always something to eat at “Grandmom’s House.” She could frequently be found baking pies or other goodies and a four-course meal could appear out of thin air before everyone had their coats removed.
Peggy’s life was a living testament to the gospel of putting others before yourself. She gave selflessly to any who had need and often overlooked others’ shortcomings.
In addition to her parents and her husband, Philip Shupe Sr., who passed in 1995, she was preceded in death by a daughter, Janet Cox, in 2014; a granddaughter, Lori Duttera; and a sister, Eleanor Wilson.
