It is with sad hearts and loving memories that the family of Edith (Peggy) Lacey Robinson age 91, announces her passing on March 22, 2019. The world has lost a dear sweet woman.

Peggy was born in Wilmington, DE to Ernest Martin Lacey and Florence Emma Maclary and was raised in the family farm in Marshallton. Peggy graduated from Conrad High School then earned a degree from Goldey Beacom College. She worked as a secretary at AAA Motor Club for 7 years until she married in 1952 to the late Raymond E. Robinson who she met by writing to a soldier during the Korean conflict. They began their life journey in Wilmington then Elsmere raising two daughters, Linda Marie Galloway and Sharon Kay Hobson. Once retired they moved to Captains Cove on the Chincoteague Bay enjoying boating, fishing, crabbing, golfing and gardening for 20 years.

In 2010 they moved to Westminster Village in Dover. Sadly, Raymond passed in 2011. Peggy kept busy volunteering, helping to run the community gift shop and organizing the holiday cookie and soup fundraisers. Peggy enjoyed being with the ladies of the Red Hatters and regularly attended church services. She was known by friends and family for her good nature, wit and sense of humor.
