Obituary for Margaret "Peggy" Anne Kriss

Margaret “Peggy” Anne Kriss was born on June 16, 1943 in Little Rock, AR to Gerald and Catherine (nee Lindstroth) Timmins. She died Friday, September 8, 2017 in Arlington Heights, IL.

 Peggy worked as the Head Receptionist for High School District 214 Administration. Other jobs included the Merchandise Mart, Wieboldts and JC Penney Catalog. She volunteered on the Parent Teacher Association (PTA) and showed Art at Patton School and helped out as a Den Mother for Cub Scouts and a Brownie Leader. She was a member of St. Edna Catholic Church in Arlington Heights. She also attended prayer groups throughout the Northwest Suburbs. She was very dedicated to the Pro-Life cause. Her faith was one of the most important aspects of her life. Peggy was an avid gardener and maintained beautiful flowers, fruits and vegetables in her suburban yard. Her garden was her sanctuary which gave her much joy. Peggy had so much fun playing “Words With Friends” and Scrabble frequently with her family and friends. One of her favorite pastimes was taking long walks in the neighborhood for exercise and as a social event. She loved to spend time with her immediate and extended family, watching Cubs games and funny movies and spending time at family gatherings. She was a master planner of family vacations. She was an extremely devoted wife and mother. Finally, Peggy always greeted everyone with a smile and had a gentle soul.
