Margaret was born in Syracuse on Jan. 7, 1950, the daughter of the late Carlton Kehoe and Mary Shaugnessy. She was a communicant of Sacred Heart Church and a retired office clerk for Hanson Aggregates in Skaneateles.
Margaret (Peg to her friends) enjoyed gardening, hanging out with her girls of the “Bible Bunch,” and board games with her family. More than anything else, she took joy in doting on her grandsons.

Private services will be held at the convenience of the family. Margaret will be entombed beside her husband in St. Joseph’s Mausoleum.
In lieu of flowers, the family asks that Peg be remembered with donations to the Fleming Fire Department #1.
