Margaret Rose "Peggy" Flagg, 78, of Columbia, MD passed away on February 6, 2019. She was the loving wife of the late Richard A. Flagg. She was a devoted mother to all of her sons, David Flagg , Paul Flagg and his wife Mary Cassil-Flagg, and was preceded in death by her son Michael Flagg. She was the adored grandmother of Jeremy Cassil and his wife Jamie, Nicholas Flagg and Adam Flagg. Peggy was an avid business woman and mentor in the field of antiques and geneaology. She expanded that knowledge to jewelry and gemstones as her love for making jewelry grew. Her knowledge and willingness to teach and help others were unmatched. She would spend many summers in her garden, enjoying the springtime when she could watch the fruits of her labor grow. She had many joys in her life, family, friends, gardening, a great student of history and lover of all knowledge. Her many friends in and outside of the business loved her as much as we did. Her love and joy for life will sustain those left behind. She will be greatly missed.

Here is one of Aunt Peggy and Uncle Dick - I would guess just before their wedding.

I have found a few choice pictures of Aunt Peggy in my folks 50th Wedding Anniversary album. Here is one of her as a little girl.

My dear Aunt Peggy will be missed. I always loved seeing her when we would visit as I was growing up.

Unfortunately, we only had the occasion to see her a few times over the past 40 years, since Bob and I live more that half-way across the country. But my husband has never forgotten the way that she welcomed him into the family 42 years ago. We two hippies arrived at my folks 30th wedding anniversary in our ancient VW bus after having just been married (3 days before) in our chosen home of New Mexico. We had driven non-stop cross country for the occasion. Aunt Peggy enveloped Bob in her arms and made him feel completely welcome. Later when we would see Aunt Peggy and Uncle Dick at other family occasions, she again made him feel a complete part of the family.

I treasure the amount of family history that she shared with me. Much of that history surrounds objects - photos and family heirlooms that have been passed through the Detrich & Scherer families down to me and my siblings. Aunt Peggy was the reference that made those objects live for me. I still reference the detailed family genealogy record that she and Uncle Dick assembled for our family lines of Detrich and Scherer. It is so important and comforting to know what lines of love, learning, vision, and effort converge to create the people that we become.
