Margaret Ann Sullivan
April 24, 1934 – April 25, 2021
Margaret Ann (Peggy) Sullivan was a caring wife, mother, grandmother, aunt and friend. She was born to Michael and Sarah Doyle on April 24, 1934. She left this world one day after her 87th birthday with her loving husband of 64 years, John, by her side. Peggy was known for her keen sense of style and quick wit. Her long standing career in retail fashion was a great source of pride, especially the years she spent at Saks Fifth Avenue in Southampton, New York and Palm Beach Gardens, FL. She was very proud of the fashion shows she planned and narrated over the years. Her colleagues said she “made a statement” when she entered a room with her bold fashion jewelry and belts. Nothing was more important to Peggy than family. She was a proud mother of two sons, Kevin and John, and grandmother of seven, Matthew, Taylor, Mackenzie, Morgan, Samantha, Michelle, and Mattingly. She shared a beautiful and uniquely strong bond with her nieces Ellen, Joanie, Tara, Nora, Julia, Deirdre and nephew Tom McCabe. Peggy is survived by her husband, John, and sister, Maureen (Tommy) McCabe. Peggy had a “youthful spirit” and liked to stay up on pop culture. She became an avid country music fan in her 60s. When she moved to Florida, she became acquainted with the local news announcers and disc jockeys and kept up with Jennifer Ross, Roxanne Stein, Steve Weagle and others on Facebook. Her ability to connect with her younger co-workers, nieces and grandchildren was a beautiful thing to behold. She seemed to know when to offer support and consult, always infusing a bit of humor. Peggy and John’s favorite holiday was Christmas and they hosted a beautiful family Christmas Eve dinner each year. John decorated the house with inflatable Santas in every room. Presents abounded around the tree. Peggy and John spent weeks shopping for everyone and took great delight in watching others open their gifts. Peggy spent about half of her life in New York, and the other half in Florida. She loved her neighbors in Jupiter who provided friendship and support. Peggy and John lived in The Landing of Lake Worth, the last two years of her life. She had many friends there; both staffers and residents. In the first year there, she relished the title of “ambassador.” She was often selected to show potential residents through the facility. The family is forever grateful to the staff at The Landing for their care. Peggy was a kind and generous spirit. She will be missed by many. Visitation will be held on Monday, May 3, 2021 from 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM at Aycock-Riverside Funeral and Cremation Center, 1112 Military Trail, Jupiter, FL 33458, followed by a funeral service at 4:00 PM. Donations in her memory can be made to Trustbridge Hospice Foundation or Big Dog Rescue at www.bdrr.org/donation-form.

I met Peggy at 16 years old working at my brothers 7-11 in East Quogue. Instantly became friends....Her style, wit and sense of humor were flawless..I then worked with her at Billings in Southampton then at Saks Fifth Avenue...There was no one like Peggy and I'm sure she will be greatly missed by ALL who knew and loved her...
I am so sorry for your loss and will keep you and your family in my prayers....

peggy was so near and dear to me. she was the "star" of our yoga community, barefoot yoga in the bluffs, for over 5 years, always making us laugh and telling funny anecdotes. she had an irrepressible smile. her favorite yoga posture was half-moon and she used to hate it, til she "mastered" it and was so proud of herself for her progress in the forms and the breathing. most of all, she had a child-like faith in Jesus and gave me a white Bible one Christmas which i treasure. she was open to prayer and to "hearing from God" each class. i love her with all my heart! Peggy, keep heaven dancing until we arrive there and please influence the Big Man to send Jesus back soon- if anybody can YOU can!!!i love you always, carol serna owner thebarefootyogastudio.com fb/barefootjupiter

My wonderful cousin with her great sense of humor. Peggy was our other sister when we all grew up just blocks apart. She always had incredible energy even into her later years. She would often relate how she would babysit me by pointing my carriage into the sun to close my eyes. As my Mom would say “she had the divil in her”. RIP fave cuz!
