Margaret M. "Peggy" Delargy, age 78, passed away peacefully on Wednesday, November 18, 2020, at Quaboag Rehabilitation and Skilled Care Center in West Brookfield, MA after a short struggle with cancer. She was born on December 7, 1941, in Ware, MA to the late George Slattery and Mildred (Szadek) Slattery. She married her loving husband, John M. Delargy, Sr., on July 22, 1961, in Ware, MA, where they raised their family and spent their lives together. Peggy, as she was known, was a beloved kindergarten teacher at the former St. Mary's School in Ware for 15 years before her career ended in a tragic car accident that left her disabled. She never stopped reminiscing about her past students and her genuine love of teaching. She was a devout and proud Catholic, which was evident in every room of her home and by the rosary beads she kept by her chair. Peggy was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister, aunt and friend to so many who loved her. She leaves behind her wonderful husband of 59 years, John, two beautiful children and their spouses, John Delargy, Jr. and Melissa (King) Delargy of Ware, MA, and Kathleen (Delargy) Rougeau and Steven Rougeau of Milford, NH. She will be deeply missed by her grandchildren, Lee Barbiasz and his wife Jaelyn of Amherst, NH, Dwight Barbiasz of Oklahoma City, OK, Jamison Holder of Milford, NH, and Olivia Rougeau of Milford, NH, as well as her great-grandchildren Elijah Barbiasz, Eloise Barbiasz, and Baker Barbiasz of Amherst, NH. Peggy also leaves behind her siblings, George Slattery of Ware, John Slattery and his wife, Mary of Ware, and Dennis Slattery of Ware. She was predeceased by her brother Charles Slattery and his wife Marie, both formerly from Ware. She also leaves behind many nieces, nephews and family members of whom she was a great part of their lives growing up. A Funeral Mass will be offered for Peggy on Tuesday, November 24, 2020 at 10 AM in St. Mary's Church, 60 South St., Ware. Everyone will meet directly in the church on Tuesday morning. Due to the current COVID-19 state guidelines, masks must be worn and social distancing must be followed during the services.
