MARGARET SPOERKE

Margaret “Peggy” Kathryn Spoerke went to join her beloved family in heaven, on November 8, 2017. Peggy was born on October 28, 1954, in Oregon, Ohio, to Ernest and Kathryn (nee Van Haren). She graduated from Rossford High School and less than a month ago attended her reunion where she had a “fabulous” time! Peggy’s first employment was at LaSalle’s in downtown Toledo, and she continued her lifetime career working in retail, primarily many years with the Bon-Ton Stores (Elder-Beerman) as a human resources manager. Peggy moved to the Dayton area 20 years ago, where she continued to touch others’ lives in a way only Peggy could–if one ever met her, one never forgot her! Peggy’s Catholic faith was important to her, and she lived her life accordingly. Also, she was an accomplished bowler, thoroughly enjoyed working in her yard, decorating her home for the holidays, and spending time with close friends and her beloved family. We will all miss her infamous “buckeyes” and everything else she did to make people feel special. L eft to cherish each and every memory of Peg are: sisters, Mary (John) Strzelecki and Suzanne (Michael) Brodbeck, and sister-in-law, Sandy Spoerke. Also surviving are her nieces, Angela (Aaron) Wade, Heather (Scott) Horoszewski, Patricia (Russell) Marriott, Amanda (Christopher) Szalkowski; her nephew, Nathan Brodbeck, and several great-nieces and great-nephews. She also leaves a host of very dear friends. She is pre-deceased by her parents; her infant sister, Mary Kathryn, and her brother, Joseph Spoerke. Friends and family will be received at Witzler-Shank Funeral Home, 222 East South Boundary Street, Perrysburg, Ohio 43551 (419-874-3133) Saturday December 2, from 10 a.m. to noon, with a memorial service to begin at noon. Burial will be private at St. Rose Catholic Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests a contribution to a charity of the donor’s choice in Peggy’s memory.
