Margaret "Peggy" (Pappa) Will, 72, of Apollo Pennsylvania entered into Heaven's Gates on April 15, 2021 after a month long battle of COVID-19. Peggy was born in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania on March 25, 1949. Peggy was born on the Catholic Feast Day, The Annunciation to the Blessed Virgin Mary. Peggy always felt a connection with the Blessed Mother as she would pray to her often for intercessory prayer. Peggy was a graduate of Penn Hills High School Class of 1967.
She was a caring mother and homemaker. Peggy was an excellent cook and enjoyed preparing meals for her family and friends. She had a love for all ethnic foods but Italian food was her favorite by far. She loved to watch cooking channels and belonged to many cooking forums on social media. In Peggy's leisure time, she enjoyed being on her computer with her many internet friends who became family to her over the last 20 years. Peggy was in her own zone and was her own commander in chief at her computer station. Her dog Rocco kept her company by her feet as she went about her day. Peggy liked to do gardening and always made their home and deck beautiful for the spring and summer seasons. She also enjoyed her occasional glass of merlot. Peggy enjoyed spending time with all of her family, especially her husband Monte of 52 years. They were inseparable and enjoyed eating out and shopping together. Peggy also loved to learn new dance moves that her granddaughters would teach her through TikTok. She had a love of music, but Motown was her favorite. Peggy taught all her daughters how to cook at a young age and they keep the family traditions going today. Peggy was the perfect grandma of six who always made each one feel so special. She has two sons-in- law who are like sons to her that she loved very much. Peggy will be truly missed by her husband Monte with whom she truly shared all her love.
Peggy was preceded in death by her loving parents Albert and Frances (DeRiggi) Pappa of Penn Hills and her loving sister Linda (Pappa ) Murray of Verona. Peggy is survived by her husband of 52 years Monte R. Will Jr of Apollo. She has four daughters, Tina (Jack) Stavros of Plum, Monica (Chris) Musco of Apollo, Lori Will of Vandergrift and Mary Will of Apollo. She has six grandchildren Luke Musco, Alexander Will, Johnny Ioannou, Karissa Will, Ava Will, Haley Will. Peggy also has two brothers Louis (Lesley) Pappa of Oakmont and Richard Pappa of Waxhaw, North Carolina. She also had numerous beloved cousins, nieces and nephews.
