In memory of
Margaret "aka Peg" (Sterne) Holdway
Margaret Holdway, aka Peg (Sterne) passed away suddenly on June 15, 2016, in her home at Grandview Terrace, Sun City West, AZ. Peg was 85 and is survived by her loving and devoted husband, Robert C. Holdway, to whom she was married for over 64 years. She was born in Philadelphia, PA, and met him there while they both worked at Dun & Bradstreet. Peg and Bob raised their four sons in New Jersey. During those years she ran a busy household, and worked as a bookkeeper maintaining the financial records and payrolls for several small businesses and as the manager of accounting and human resources at a privately-held chemical company. In 1987, they retired to Sun City West, where she pursued an interest in weaving and served as the president of the local weavers club. Peg was a wonderfully caring mother and grandmother who baked cookies, sent cards and gifts, and took a thoughtful interest in each member of her growing family. She will be deeply missed and lovingly remembered by son Robert G. of Chestnut Hill, MA, his wife Elin H. Graydon, and their daughters Alison T. Holdway and Laura E. Holdway; son David W. of Palm Springs, CA; son Richard D. of Palm Springs, CA and his husband Craig J. Magaw; and son Kenneth W. of Calabasas, CA, his wife Debra L. Holdway, and their children Cynthia A. (Levy) Canchola (and her husband Cristobal), Michael S. Levy (and his husband Enrique L. Mendoza), and Matthew W. Holdway. She is also survived by her sister-in-law Anna Sterne of Fort Myers, FL, and her nieces Barbara Sterne and Deborah Schrimmer.
