Margaret Mary "Peggy" Dapp
June 22, 1927 – July 20, 2018
Margaret Mary "Peggy" Dapp went to be with Jesus on Friday, July 20, 2018 at 91 years of age. At the time of her passing, Peggy was a resident of Travanse Living at Olathe Retirement Community in Olathe, KS.
Peggy was preceded in death by her husband, Raymond T. Dapp Sr., whom she married on May 20th, 1950 in Philadelphia, PA. All 5 of her siblings, her daughters, Debi DeHoney and Maureen Vernon, as well as her son, Jeff Dapp also preceded her in death. Peggy's surviving children are: Raymond T. Dapp Jr., Tom Dapp, Megan Ford, Dan Dapp, Jo Ehler and Janet Lacy. Peggy had several grandchildren and great grandchildren. She loved each and every one of her family members with all of her heart and prayed for peace and unity over all of them daily.
Peggy moved from Pennsylvania to Overland Park, KS in the early 1960s and loved living here. She was a devoted fan of her beloved KC Chiefs and KC Royals- often times supporting the teams by wearing her favorite team shirt on game day. If you called to talk with Peggy when the Chiefs were being televised, you better do it during half-time
Soon after her husband died in 1974, Peggy went to school; obtaining her certification as a Certified Nursing Assistant and going to work immediately for various doctors. Peggy worked diligently in the medical field for 40 plus years and retired at the age of 85 from the Women's Clinic of Johnson County. She fully enjoyed her work at WCJC, especially when she would get to help counsel newly expectant moms.
Peggy never met a stranger. She would strike up a conversation with anyone, anywhere, anytime and typically ended the conversation with a "God Bless You." Ever the comedian, Peggy had a quick wit and sense of humor- it became her personal mission to "always leave them laughing" and she typically did. Loving to give people her "just Food for Thought." Her wisdom and wit will be missed by many.
The family would like to thank all the many wonderful workers at Travanse Living. Thanks and appreciation also goes to the Catholic Charities Hospice RNs and volunteers who treated her with love, compassion and friendship.
Service for Peggy will be held where she was a long-time member at Church of the Holy Cross, 8311 W. 93rd Street, Overland Park, KS on Tuesday, August 14, 2018 at 11:00am.
In lieu of flowers, making a monetary donation to Holy Cross' Meditation Garden in Peggy's name would be greatly appreciated.

Heaven gained an angel the day Peggy died! I met her 5 months ago, when I introduced the hospice volunteer Tami to her. Peggy was an incredible woman with so much wisdom and wit. I cried through our visit, because everything she said touched my heart. I even mentioned wanting to do a video of her to leave as a legacy to her children. Unfortunately, we didn't get that done. She often spoke of her love of family.
I was present with Peggy when she died. I went to say my goodbye and the I love you and was holding her hand and reminded her of the miracles she had prayed for of talking/seeing some of her children. I then told her to go be with God and it was less than 2 minutes later, she passed.
What a privilege and honor to have been there with her. I'll never forget her and her positive outlook on life. To God be the glory!

I met Peggy in April of this year when I started praying the rosary with her on Wednesday's through Catholic Charities. What a woman!! She loved her God and she loved her family!! I would come every Wednesday, which soon became the best day of my week, at 11:00 and there she was: hair done and make up on...beautiful!!! A blouse and jewelry every week! We would talk first, before we prayed, like old friends! And then we would pray...for our families, her family! For love and unity!
I wasn't with her when she died, but I was there earlier in the day, and I know she had the peace of that unity granted by our Mighty God!
I miss her every week, but my life is better having been touched by Peggy Dapp.
Rest in peace beautiful lady!

I'm blessed to be married to Peggy's daughter Jo. There's an old saying... that if you want to see what your wife will be like, just look at her mother. In that case, I'm blessed far more than I deserve! Peggy was a loving person that went out of her way to show genuine care for everyone she met. I remember bringing her to Tulsa once and we stopped at a Dairy Queen to get her a strawberry shake. (I'm sure they have those in Heaven as much as she loved them!) We met a couple of teenagers and she struck up a conversation with them and you would have thought they were long lost family members and she was their Grandmother! She was truly interested in getting to know people and didn't mind telling you just "How the Cow ate the Cabbage" if she didn't agree with what you had to say! Peggy was a strong, tough and sharp as tack through these last years and made the best of a not so good situation by caring for others rather than dwelling in self-pity. Her face would light up the room anytime her family and friends visited. I'm rejoicing knowing that I will see that look on her face once again in all it's glory. Love you Mom.

I am Peggy's niece from Ca. Aunt Peg was my Godmother and mentor. I took "Ray, Ray" Debi, & Tommy to the park in
Levitt Town, Pa. before they moved to Kansas. I was called the "Pied Piper" of the kids in the neighborhood.
I remember Aunt Peg holding the little hands of each of her babies before putting them to bed while she said prayers for them.
As the kids got older they even ordered certain meals they wanted to eat and she would cook it for them!
I wanted to be just like my Aunt! Except I had 5 Children, not 9 and they did not get special meals, but did get to eat whatever
I fixed! Talking to Aunt Peg about a week and a half before she was called home, she sounded good and we had a few laughs
about getting old and what comes along with that. I know she loved her family, her friends,her church and especially her Catholic Faith!
GOD'S BLESSINGS & MY LOVE TO ALL! PAT

Peggy was such a fun spirited lady! When I first met her, she welcomed me to the family as if I was one of her own. I remember about 5 years ago on Fourth of July she was out hanging with all of the younger people, sitting front row watching the fireworks, not letting a single moment of enjoyment pass by. She fit right in! Since I didn't have any living grandparents, I always saw her as my grandmother. She was always so kind to me, and she will always have a special place in my heart.

Peggy will surely be missed by many. There was never a dull moment when Grandmums was around. She was always quick to make a joke and always had something to smile about. She was bold, charismatic, incredibly strong and had endless care and love for her family. Even as a Denver Broncos fan, there is definitely something to be said about how competitive and relentless her Chiefs spirit was (no matter how bad their winning record might’ve been). I will always cherish the memories that I was blessed enough to make with her. I love you grandmums and can’t wait to see you again.
