Margaret L. ‘Peggy’ Merz
May 30, 1922 – Oct. 31, 2010
L. "Peggy" Merz, 88, passed away peacefully surrounded by her
family Sunday, Oct. 31, 2010, at AngelsGrace Hospice.
She was born May 30, 1922, in Milwaukee. On Dec. 7, 1946, she was united
in marriage to her beloved husband and soul mate, Roland "Rolly"
Merz, and together ran Merz Electrical Service for more than 40 years
before passing it on to their sons.
Peggy had a zest for life. If she wasn’t on the golf course, playing
cards, baking or twirling across the dance floor, you could find her
spending time with her family. Peggy was a member of the Waukesha Service
Club for many years. Those that knew her were truly blessed.
She was the loving mother of Mark (Jeanne), Paul (Jayne) and Muffin Merz.
She is further survived by seven grandchildren, Noll, Taylor, Kelly
(Josh), Karly, Brandon (Shelli), Megan and Nathan; six
great-grandchildren, Maddox, Ryland, Asher, Lauren, Cadyn and Alexandria;
and many other relatives and friends.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Anthony and Clara (nee Phippen)
Milhalovic; husband, Rolly; sister, Betty Konrath; and brothers, Robert
Noll Jr. and Virgil Ganz.
A memorial visitation will take place from 2 p.m. until the 4 p.m. funeral
service Sunday, Nov. 7, at First Presbyterian Church, 810 N. East Ave.,
In lieu of flowers, memorials to AngelsGrace Hospice or The Caring Place
would be appreciated.
