Peg (Hunt) McKenna, 87, a lifelong resident of Lima, died Monday evening, April 1, 2019 in the emergency room at Mercy Health-St. Rita’s Medical Center. She was a loving mother, grandmother, friend and companion. In her younger days, she worked as a medical secretary but her greatest pride and joy came from her family. As a young widow, she devoted her life to her three children, making sure they had the best life possible. She continued to shower her love on her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. There was never a doubt of her enormous love. Peg’s love and giving spirit had no bounds. She often showed her love through her gift giving to friends, family and especially to her beloved daughter Judy, her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. When Peg was not spending time with her family, she was active in St. Gerard’s Catholic Church, the Eagles Club, where she enjoyed dancing with her beloved Fred and she loved singing. Her strength, wisdom, compassion and giving spirit continues to live on in all who knew and loved her. In heaven, she is joining her mother Martha, her father Raymond, sister Mary, brother Jerry, daughter Sally, son Tom, husbands Robert and William and grandchild Sean. THE HEAVENS ARE REJOICING!!!
