Marguerite “Peggy” Ludwig, RN

Marguerite “Peggy” Ludwig, RN, Scranton, passed away Sunday in the St. Mary’s Villa Nursing Home where she was a resident.

Born 1936 in Scranton, she was the only child of the late Harry and Gertrude Scott Ludwig.  Peggy was a graduate of the former Scranton Central High School and Mercy Hospital School of Nursing.  She was a faithful and devoted member of the Immaculate Conception Church and enjoyed her time volunteering in the church’s daycare where she was affectionately known as “Miss Peggy.”   Peggy’s faith was understated and quiet but none-the-less strong and firm.  Prior to her retirement, Peggy was employed as a Registered Nurse for 40 years at the Mercy Hospital where she enjoyed long meaningful relationships with her co-workers.  Her love and dedication of taking care of the ill was never more on display than in her retirement when she cared for her father during his final illness.

Surviving are cousins Lawrence Ludwig and his wife Noreen of Clarks Green; John Ludwig of Dickson City; and Gary Ludwig and his wife Paula of Michigan;  and numerous great cousins.

She was predeceased recently by John’s wife Anne, whom Peggy often said “was like a sister.”

Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated Friday at 10:30am in the Immaculate Conception Church 801 Taylor Ave. Scranton, PA 18510.

Interment, Cathedral Cemetery.

In lieu of flowers memorial contributions should be made in Peggy’s honor to the Immaculate Conception Church 801 Taylor Ave., Scranton, PA 18510.

    Dear Ludwig family,

    It is with sadness that I read of Peggy’s passing. I am Ann Marie McDonald of ICC. I recently passed her home coming and going from church during the Easter season, and wondered how she was doing. I was in charge of the Children’s Center at ICC, where she volunteered. She was a wonderful person, and I was glad to know her. Even after her volunteer days were over, we kept in touch; mostly by cards these pandemic years.

    Because of plans to be with my granddaughter, who lives in NY, I will be unable to attend funeral services. Please accept my sincerest sympathies.
