Peggy Caponegro was a bright light, whose love and compassion knew no bounds. She has left an indelible mark on the lives she touched and will be missed forever. Interment will be private and a celebration of life will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers donations may be made in honor of Peggy to St. Mary’s Roman Catholic Church in Colts Neck, NJ or the Alzheimer's Association. It can be a great comfort to a grieving person or family to hear that others thought highly of their loved one, too.
