In memory of
Margaret F. "Peggy" Bradley
Margaret F. 'Peggy' Bradley April 15,1938-Oct. 5, 2019 In the early morning hours of Oct. 5, 2019, Peggy Bradley left this world for Heaven, while holding the hand of her husband of 60 years, Bob Bradley. She let go of his hand to grab the hand of God, and she will be missed forever. She was 81 years old. Margaret Frances Bradley (nee O'Malley) was born in Orange, N.J., on April 15, 1938. Her parents, John P. O'Malley Sr. and Catherine O'Malley (nee McPadden) raised her in West Orange N.J. Peggy graduated from West Orange High School in 1957. Peggy's high school quote stated that she wanted to earn a "Mrs." degree. All she ever wanted was to be a wife and a mother, and for the past 60 years that is exactly what she was. On Sept. 19, 1959, she married Robert F. Bradley, who had come to the U.S. from Ireland in 1957. Together they raised five children and became grandparents to 10. She lived in West Orange for most of her life, and moved to Mendham, N.J., in 2006. Peggy crocheted beautiful blankets when each of her grandchildren were born and then she crocheted blankets, in school colors, for them as they went off to college. Peggy loved Irish music, dancing and singing. Her famous Irish soda bread and chocolate cream pie will be missed by many. She was an amazing friend to anyone who needed someone and she was like a sister to her lifelong friends. Peggy leaves behind her husband of 60years, Robert F. Bradley; her children, Mike Bradley; Kevin Bradley and his wife, Debbie; Anne-Marie Cavallo and her husband, Louis; Rob Bradley and John Bradley; her 10 grandchildren, Jack and Joe Bradley, Kevin, Sean and Madison Bradley, Louis, Bobby, Stephen and John Cavallo and her youngest grandchild, Caroline Bradley. Peggy also leaves her brother, John P. O'Malley Jr., as well as many loving brothers and sisters-in-law, nieces and nephews. Peggy was predeceased by her parents, John P. and Catherine O'Malley; her sister, Helen Thomas; her brother, Michael O'Malley, as well as many loving sisters and brothers-in-law. A Funeral Mass will be offered on Saturday, Oct. 12 at St. Joseph's Church, 6 New St. in Mendham at 10 a.m. Interment will follow at Gate of Heaven Cemetery in East Hanover, N.J. In lieu of flowers, donations in Peggy's name may be sent to: Lupus Foundation of America 150 Morris Avenue, No. 102, Springfield Township, N.J. 07081. Arrangements are entrusted to The Dangler Funeral Home of West Orange, 340 Main St., West Orange, N.J. 07052. Letters of condolence may be posted at danglerfuneralhome.com .
