Margaret “Peggy” Mary Keffer

Loving Sister, Aunt, & Friend -

Margaret “Peggy” Mary Keffer, age 72, of Camp Hill, and formerly of Harrisburg, passed away on Monday, June 12, 2017, after a long battle with Alzheimer’s Disease.  Peggy was born on Saturday, August 5, 1944 in St. Clair, PA to the late James Martin Keffer and Margaret Charlotte (Pretti) Keffer.  In addition to her parents, Peggy is preceded in death by her son, Michael James Keffer; her sister, Helen Kelley; and her three brothers: James J. Keffer, Robert C. Keffer, and Joseph H. Keffer.

Peggy’s survivors include her sister, Kathleen Kulp and her husband, Bryan, of Duncannon; her brother, Edward “Ed” Michael Keffer of Steelton; her niece, Bryanna “Bre” Kulp; and her nephews: Anthony “Tony” Keffer, James Kulp along many more countless nieces and nephews.

Peggy graduated from William Penn High School as part of the class of 1964.  She retired in 2001 from PennDOT in Harrisburg, after 30 years of service working in law enforcement services where she checked NCIC computers for the police.  Peggy was a lifelong member of the Catholic faith and she exhibited that in her everyday life.   She loved listening to Frank Sinatra and watching every movie that Gerard Butler starred in.  Peggy enjoyed making a day out going to a see a movie that was next in her favorite series especially Harry Potter, Twilight, and the Lord of the Rings.  She liked watching television and always had her favorite shows on such as Law & Order, NCIS, and SVU.  Once Peggy retired, she liked watching and feeding the birds as they came and went in her backyard.  She often delighted in playing bingo and frequenting the Hollywood Casino where she became a member of the Producer’s Club.  Most importantly, Peggy cherished the time she spent with her family and they will all miss her dearly.

All are welcome to join Peggy’s family at gathering of family and friends on Saturday, June 24, 2017, from 4:00 p.m. until time of the blessing service at 4:45 p.m. at Myers - Buhrig Funeral Home and Crematory, 37 East Main Street, Mechanicsburg, PA 17055; with Deacon Jack Paruso officiating.  Peggy’s family invites everyone to join them for a time of food and fellowship at The Stage & Studio Café, next door to the funeral home, following the service.

I remember Peggy quite well as a neighbor on Susquehanna Street in Harrisburg and as a member of our graduating class of 1964 from William Penn Senior High School in Harrisburg. It is quite interesting that Peggy enjoyed watching NCIS and Law and Order------two of my favorites----quite a coincidence!!! I was hoping to see Peggy at out 50th class reunion in September 2014 to possibly relive memories from Cameron Elementary School (playground), Camp Curtin JHS, and of course William Penn SHS. I remember the Keffer family quite well. May you rest in peace as you join you family members in Heaven. God Bless.

Spent many years as friends, from Cameron school days until a few years ago when several of us from Cameron days had breakfast once a month. Peggy was always fun and had us laughing every time we were together. Lost touch after we stopped going to breakfast, sorry I wasn't around to offer support when things were rough. Rest In Peace Ms Peggy, heaven has an angel that will bring joy to those around her. To her family, please accept my sincere condolences.

Peggy was a dear friend growing up, I grew up on Penn Street, good memories from the neighborhood. When I returned to the area, Peggy was living in the Cameron Apts. and had several of us to her home. Great memories, we talked often of our families, good times sledding, ice skating, thanks to Myrtle George, who took us many places, as a group. It was a good time to grow up, and I was blessed with friends who remained friends all my life. Rest In Peace dear friend, I will think of you often, especially on our shared birthday.

So very sorry to hear of Peggy's death. I was in her graduating class and wondered why she was not at our 50th reunion. I was not aware that she suffered with the Alzheimer's disease. She is in good hands now.

I'm so sorry to hear about Peggy's death. You know we grew up in the same neighborhood, went to Cameron School and graduated from William Penn H.S. in 1964. She always attended the class reunions and I know if she were able she would have been at our 50th. Bob Swope and Dick Ford from our class and Susquehanna Street both asked about her at the reunion.
You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers.

To the family of Peggy I am truly sorry I could not attend the Gathering on Saturday. My wife is going through some medical problems and I needed to be with her during that time. Again, my sympathies go out to Peggy's family and friends. I will continue to keep you in my thoughts and prayers. All take good care.
