Margaret “Peggy” Russell, age 81, of New Port Richey, FL, passed away January 28, 2018. Peggy was born March 2, 1936 to David A. Dee, Sr. and Veleda (Patnode) Dee in Schodack, NY. She spent most of her working years as a bookkeeper for a bank in Albany, NY. Peggy moved to the New Port Richey, FL area in 2000 after retiring.
Peggy did not have children of her own, but she was very close with her family and loved being an aunt to her nieces and nephews. She hosted family dinners that all her loved ones were happy to attend as she was a fantastic cook. She was also very talented with crafts, especially crocheting. She would sell her creations at craft fairs held in the Sunshine Lakes mobile home park where she lived. Peggy was a people person. She was so friendly – everyone she met was a friend. In her free time, she loved to visit the beach and go sightseeing, always making new acquaintances along the way.
Aside from her parents, Peggy is preceded in death by her beloved husband, Herbert A. Russell and brothers, Thomas Francis Dee and Warren Gregg Dee. She is survived by her brother, David Dee, Jr. (Charmaine); her sister, Mary Raymond; her sister-in-law, Linda Dee; seven nieces and nephews; and many more loving family members and dear friends.
