A native & life resident of Hornell, she was born November 18, 1953 and was the daughter of James & Marion (Baker) Clark.
Peg grew up in Hornell where she attended Lincoln School and St. Ann’s School. She later graduated from Hornell High School (class of 1971).
She was employed for 28 years as a secretary at the New York State Department of Transportation (NYSDOT) retiring in 2009. Peggy was a member of Our Lady of the Valley Parish and a livelong communicant of St. Ignatius Loyola Church. She had also been a member of the Hornell Elks Lodge.
Peggy will be remembered as a warm & gentle woman with a heart of gold. Although she lived a simply, quiet life, she always found time to laugh with her friends or lend a helping hand to anyone in need. Her true joy in life, however, was simply spending time with her family and caring for her dogs. She will be truly missed by everyone that had the pleasure of knowing her!
In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her sister, Rosemary.
