Peggy Edgett of North Palm Beach, Florida passed away on Tuesday August 11, 2020.

Margaret Ann Plummer Edgett, beloved wife of George Reynolds Edgett (deceased) and wonderful mother to Andrea Arnold and son-in-law Sandy Arnold, Curtis Edgett and daughter-in-law Cindy Edgett and Lorinda Goldsmith and son-in-law David Goldsmith. Grandchildren Lee Arnold and his wife Erin, Ariel Yount and her husband Ben, Brandon Edgett, Reid Edgett and his wife Melissa, Keith Edgett, adopted daughter, Thayse Campos, Drew Goldsmith, Zachary Goldsmith and Great Grandson Kellan Gray Arnold. Peggy grew up in Melrose, Massachusetts and went to Kathleen Dell Secretarial School in Brookline, after graduating from Melrose High School. She worked several years at MIT for various professors. She enjoyed going up to the lake in Maine, sailing her own sail boat, working and being with people. Her 54 years of marriage to George was one she treasured. Once her children were born she spent her time loving and nurturing her children to become independent loving adults.  

She was a wonderful mother to not only her children but to anyone willing to get hugs and lots of love. She made sure her children were always challenged and each one felt they were her favorite.  She participated in many of her children’s activities as a Den Mother for Cub Scouts, Troop leader with the Girl Scouts and made sure her children had a well-rounded education and life experiences.  She dedicated her life to making her family a loving home full of positive reinforcement and encouragement.

Later in life as her children became older, she went back to work with Polaroid and participated in beta testing the newest Polaroid camera at the time called the SX70 camera. She always had a smile on her face and made others smile even when they didn’t want to.  Her family lived in Reading and Westwood, Massachusetts until 1973 when the family moved to North Palm Beach, Florida. She spent several years working at National Golf Foundation spreading her happiness and making new friends while she worked. She enjoyed playing tennis, tobogganing with her children, skiing, boating and gardening. Her gardens were always full of beautiful plants and flowers.

She loved watching hockey games with her family and friends. Planning parties and entertaining people was one of her favorite activities. She was always a wonderful host to neighbors, co-workers, family and friends.

Even in her final years of life with dementia she still provided a loving smile and happiness to those that cared for her. Although she could not verbalize what she was thinking you knew it was love in her heart. She will be forever missed and loved.
