Johnson, Margaret M. “Peggy”, 71, passed away April 30, 2020, at her home. Peggy was born in Sewickley, PA, to Earl and Mary Hughes and came to Tampa at a very early age. She was preceded in death by her father and her brother, Robert “Bob” (Delores) Hughes.

She is survived by her husband of 50 years, Pat Johnson; her mother, Mary Douglas; seven remaining brothers and sisters, Earl (Ellen) Hughes, Becky Vining, Shirley (John) Kouma, Patricia (Guy) Woolweaver, Mark Hughes, Jerry (Nancy) Hughes, and Mary Jo (Dennis) Poyner.

Her grandchildren called her “Lovie.”

She was a parishioner of St. Mark the Evangelist Catholic Church. Peggy was a firm believer in finding a cure for cancer, participating in the Susan G. Komen 3-Day 60-mile walk for eight consecutive years, and the Miles for Moffitt cancer walks. Through her participation in these organizations, and through the life that she led, she gained dedicated, lifelong friends.

I was on a solo 3-Day training walk when I met Peggy. She, Connie, Betty, and June invited me to walk with them the next weekend and welcomed me into Team Hope. At a troubled time in my life, Peggy was full of down-to-earth advice and a ready ear on those walks.

She had a talent for bringing individuals together for their own good.

She'll be missed. My condolences to her family.

I first met Peggy in Tallahassee when she and Pat were engaged to be married. We lived across the street from the Johnsons in Tallahassee, 25 years later we became neighbors in Pebble Creek.
Peggy often stopped by the house in her pretty pink cap during her daily walks. She always had a pretty smile, and was so proud of her children. She always made me feel welcome, if she new I did not have plans during the holidays she would invite me to join her family. She will truly be missed. I don't think Peggy could have picked a better, more devoted life partner than Pat.
My prayers go out to you and your family.

I first met Peggy through the Bunco group she started. I liked her from the start and always enjoyed seeing her at our monthly meetings. She was responsible for introducing me to so many nice ladies and as a bonus was a neighbor of mine living only a few blocks away. She was always so proud to show off her granddaughter to me when they were out walking. My deepest sympathy to Pat and the rest of the family for losing her so early in life.

Peggy was the sweetest, kindest person I've ever been privileged to know. Not only did I work with her, but continued to be her friend for years. She will be missed, not only by her family, but by those of us who were lucky enough to have known her. God bless you, Peggy.

Peggy was the sweetest and friendliest person. We actually met in a Walgreen’s parking lot. I had a breast cancer awareness license plate and she asked me if I was a survivor. I told her no but that I had family and friends that did and that it was a cause I felt close to my heart. We exchanged tel numbers and from that little meet and greet we became friends. We often met for lunch and shared our love of family . I met so many of her wonderful friends and suddenly I was in a Bunco much fun. I went to her Pampered Chef Parties. We often would see each other at St. Mark’s.
I will always remember this lovely lady. My deepest condolences to her beautiful family .

Peggy was a loving, compassionate, energetic, and principled woman. She gave 100% to everything she became involved in. I met her about 12 years ago at one of the training walks for the 3-Day 60 Mile walk in Tampa. Since then, we probably walked (and talked) a few thousand miles together (literally). That along with twice weekly gym workouts, lunches, and other outings, and we were staying really fit. I loved her energy. I loved her gracious manner. I loved that she took up causes that mattered to her and did all that she could to support them. And, of course, she was so proud of Pat and the good life they had built together, not to mention her love for all her kids, their families and grandkids. She really had a gentle, beautiful spirit. Healing wishes to all of her family.

Since moving to Kentucky 4 years ago, not a day went by that I didn't think of Peggy. Playing bunco, working at Erwin, our HCAEOP group, Pampered Chef parties, going to lunch ... so many good times with our girlfriends! I'll cherish our memories forever. Much love to Pat, her Mom and the other family members.

I remember Mrs. Johnson's presence through my time in high school. A beautiful woman, and always gave wise counsel. My deepest sympathies to her mother who no doubt is extremely anquished at the passing of her child. My deepest sympathies to her husband, her three children, and her grandchildren. Her daughter is my phenomenal and forever friend, Kym. Love and prayers to all of Mrs. Johnson's family and friends.
