Obituary for Margaret "Peggy" Younkin (Guggi)

Margaret Rose “Peggy” (Guggi) Younkin, age 81, entered into rest peacefully with her family by her side on Thursday, January 24, 2019.

Peggy was born in Rome, NY, on August 8, 1937, a daughter of the late Fred and Violet (Toti) Guggi. During her career Peggy worked at the Rome Teachers Association, Rome Savings Bank, and retired from the Rome City Hall Planning Department in 1999. She was formerly married to Arden J. Younkin and traveled and resided in various locations as an “airlines wife.”

Peggy was an avid quilter and enjoyed attending and participating in quilt and craft shows and shopping for new fabrics with her friends. As she loved anything and everything feline, Peggy always had cats as pets and left behind “Little One,” that is now lounging comfortably with family. Peggy took pride in making her pizzelles and Italian holiday cookies and especially enjoyed the sights and sounds of the Christmas season.

Peggy is survived by her sister and brother-in-law, Virginia and David Saur, Canandaigua, daughters, Denice Townsend, Rome, and Debbie and Keith Atlas, Ballston Spa, and a son, Dan and Audrey (Zakala) Younkin, Rome; grandchildren, Christopher Weil, Jessica Weil, Jonathan Townsend, Katie Townsend, Doug (Ashlee) McLoughlin, and Kari (Justin) George, 6 great grandchildren; 2 nephews and a niece, their spouses, and 9 great nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her daughter, Donna Younkin Matinchek.

The family wishes to thank the staff at Faxton St. Luke’s Healthcare, Utica, and Betsy Ross Nursing and Rehabilitation Center, Rome, for the excellent care their Mom received.

The funeral service will be held Wednesday at 6:00 PM, at the Barry Funeral Home, 807 West Chestnut Street.

Relatives and friends may call at the funeral home on Wednesday from 4 to 6 PM, prior to the funeral service.
