Back To Front Page



Margaret Alice “Peggy” Pomeroy, age 55, passed away peacefully in her Schererville home on August 4, 2016.

She was born on August 17, 1960, in Valparaiso, IN, to Wallace and Alice (O’Connor) Pomeroy, who preceded her in death. She was also preceded in death by her sister, Rosie.

Peggy is survived by her faithful companion Frosty; sisters, Kathy (Oscar) Pace and Mary (Julie) Pomeroy of Chesterton, IN; brothers, Daniel (Katherine) Pomeroy of Chesterton, IN, and Donald (Shari) Pomeroy of Brazil, IN. Also surviving are aunts, an uncle, several cousins, nieces, nephews, great-nieces and great-nephews, all of whom she thought of dearly.

Peggy received her Master’s Degree at Purdue University and went on to be a Chemist at Innophos Inc. Peggy was an avid collector of cook books, Coca-Cola and Wizard of Oz memorabilia, and of course Elvis. She enjoyed making her famous cheesecake which we will miss almost as much as Peggy.

Respecting her wishes, a private memorial service will be held at a later date.

Donations in Peggy’s honor may be made to your local animal shelter, or to the American Diabetes Association at, or American Heart Association at
