Obituary for Loretta M "Peggy" Ledger (Dilling)

NORTH BROOKFIELD- Loretta M. “Peggy” (Dilling) Ledger,94, passed away peacefully early on Sunday morning, October 21,2018. Peggy had been living with her daughters, Susan Sacco and Carol Wexler, in Whitinsville, MA at the time of her death. She had lived with Susan over the last eight years but previously had been born, raised and lived in North Brookfield for most of her life.

Peggy was married to the late Clifford J. Ledger, Sr. and is survived by her two daughters, Susan Sacco and Carol Wexler, of Whitinsville, and her son Capuchin Franciscan Friar Clifford (Kip) J. Ledger, Jr. of Philadelphia, PA; 5 grandchildren, 7 great grandchildren, many nieces and nephews. She was the daughter of the late Bernard and Evelyn Dilling of North Brookfield and is predeceased by sisters Pauline Dilling, Ruth Miner, Myrtle Rebello and Shirley Rogers, and brothers Raymond Dilling, Ernest Dilling, Wilford Dilling, all of North Brookfield and brother Bernard Dilling of East Brookfield. At the beginning of her secretarial career, Peggy worked at American Optical in Southbridge and then at Warren Pumps in Warren.

Peggy was an avid gardener for most of her adult life. She loved her flowers and had beautiful flower gardens. She loved to sew and quilt and always played a mean game of scrabble, playing Words With Friends on her iPad for hours on end and was rarely beat, as many can attest to. She also loved crossword puzzles and jigsaw puzzles and was an avid reader. Family was very important to Peggy and she was always happiest when surrounded by her loved ones.
She had a great sense of humor and was loved by everyone.
