Margaret Farrington Obituary

September 29, 2023, Margaret Jean Talbot Farrington, a life-long resident of Auburn, passed away peacefully with many of her beloved family members by her side.

Peg was born in Auburn, NY on August 5, 1939, daughter of James T. and Betty Conrad Talbot. She was a 1957 graduate of East High School in Auburn. In 1969, she married James L. Farrington. Peg retired in 2001 after 30 years of employment at Community Computer Service. She previously worked at Columbian Rope and Red Star Express. She is survived by her loving husband, James L. of Auburn; son, Michael (Yvonne) Taggerty of Conway, SC; son, Daniel Taggerty of Rochester; son, James (Kathy) Farrington of Collegeville, PA; daughter Laurie Farrington of Rochester; daughter-in-law Catherine Farrington of Syracuse; 6 grandchildren, Amanda of NYC, Alyssa of Rochester and Maxwell Farrington of Syracuse, and Robert, Matthew and Lindsay Farrington of Collegeville, PA ; sister Bernie (Dick) Cornell of Auburn along with many cherished nieces, nephews and cousins. She was predeceased by son, Jeffrey Farrington in 2005, sister Lucelia Kempf in 2017 and brother James Talbot in 2021.

Peg had many interests and activities in which she was involved such as volunteering at Auburn Memorial Hospital, membership at the Rosary and Scapular Society of St. Mary’s Church and RSVP, reading and crocheting. What she looked forward to the most, though, was spending time with her family. She enjoyed competitive Yahtzee games with her husband, watching and discussing the Yankees and SU sports with her sons, Wednesday afternoon Bunco games with “the girls”, watching her grandchildren’s sporting events and concerts, planning the next family reunion and just catching up with a loved one over the phone. 

Calling hours will be held for family and friends at White Chapel Funeral Home, 197 South St on October 4, 2023, from 4-7pm. A Mass of Christian Burial will be held at 11am on October 5th in St. Mary’s Church, Auburn followed by the burial at St. Joseph's Cemetery.
