Obituary for Margaret Louise "Peggy" Craner

Craner, Margaret L. (Peggy) - 84, of Northfield, passed away on May 1, 2019. Peggy was born at Long's Maternity Home in Wildwood. She attended St. Ann's church and school. Later she was a freshman on the opening day of the Wildwood Catholic High School's founding, and worked at West Jersey Title Co. of Wildwood after graduation. She married Joe in 1955 and started to raise a family. After one too many storms in March of 1962, they moved to Northfield, NJ. When her children were older she worked at Prudential in Linwood where she made many life-long friends.
She was a member of St. Bernadette's Church in Northfield since its founding. It would take an act of God to have her miss mass, choir, or say her daily prayers. From the day of her birth her love of God and the baby Jesus was only equaled by the love of her family. She is predeceased by her father, Lewis Conover, her mother Anna, sisters Anna Best, and Diana Thomas, and brother Lewis Conover Jr.. Also going before her was her best friend Gloria Davison. Peg's greatest sorrow was the death of her beloved son Stephen. Left to mourn her is her husband Joe, sons Joe Jr., Alan (Theresa), Rich (Carrie), daughters LouAnn (Steven Miller) & Trish Cowan (Rob), grandsons Dan (Shannon), Quinn and Ryan, granddaughters Jesslyn, Kiara, Jolie, and many nieces and nephews. The family would like to thank Betty Timm and her choir family for their love and support, and the excellent staff at Holy Redeemer Hospice. Rest in peace dear Peggy. You were and are loved very much. Because Peggy always wanted everybody to have enough to eat, we request in lieu of flowers, donations be made to the Community FoodBank of New Jersey in her name. A Mass of Christian Burial will be held on Monday May 6, 2019 at St. Gianna Beretta Molla Parish Church 1421 New Road Northfield, NJ 08225 at 11:00 AM with a visitation from 10:00 AM until 11:00 AM prior to the mass at the church. Interment will be held at St. Mary Cemetery and Mausoleum Cape May, NJ. Arrangements by and condolences at

My sister-in-law Peggy was one in a million and she was loved by everyone who knew her.She will be sadly missed by all of us but I know there are two people up in heaven who were overjoyed to greet her;my mother who always considered her another daughter rather than a daughter-in-law and her friend Gloria.Our loss is their gain but we rejoice at the time we had her in our lives.I have known
Peggy for at least 70 years and I know she was kind,thoughtful and loving to everyone she knew and I especially know how much she love her husband and children.
I have never known any one who lived her faith as Peggy did and it was a privilege to not only know her, but to have had her be part of our family.
I will miss Peg always and I will keep her in my mind and heart for the rest of my life.
Goodbye and God speed, Helen

We loved our Aunt Peggy all of our lives. She was a beautiful and spiritual soul who always lightened our lives and our hearts when we saw her at our weddings, first communions, confirmations and all of those other important times in our lives. She was always willing to be in the background, but we always knew she was the loving and special aunt that we looked forward to seeing throughout our lives. Your memory will live in our hearts and minds and we know that you have blessed us by being in our lives. We love you. Denise and Tony

Our "Aunt Peggy" was truly the model of a selfless soul. As we live next door to her, she always had time for our children and they couldn't wait to get outside to run over to Aunt Peg and Uncle Joe's...even though you were allergic to dogs, you always made sure ours stayed full with biscuits and treats and then you would go back inside to wash your hands so you wouldn't get a reaction...You were truly a Saint here on this earth, thanks for embracing us with your friendship and love, you will be so missed with your smile and never-ending kindness..We love you Aunt Peg! Love, Laurane, Jim, Jason, Steve, Sarah, Maggie and Orion

Aunt Peggy was an angel living here on Earth. Those who were fortunate to have had her in their life, were truly blessed. She really was a very special woman. I will carry her memory with me forever. She has earned her wings.
My thoughts and prayers go out to Uncle Joe and family. May God give you strength and surround you all in a comforting embrace.
