Margaret "Peggy" (Aubin) Sheridan died in Danbury, CT on April 10, 2019 at the age of 93. Raised in Maplewood, NJ, she graduated from Oak Knoll School of the Holy Child in Summit, earned a B.S. from the College of St. Elizabeth and M.S. from Seton Hall University.

After Bill's passing, Peggy moved back to Ridgefield and participated in several book groups and activities at Founder's Hall.

Peggy will be remembered for her humor, intellect, elegance and beauty. She took great interest in people and had a special gift of making everyone she met feel welcomed and accepted.
