Margaret Ann “Peggy” Foster age 67 of Charleroi went with the Lord on Friday, March 18, 2022, six years after her diagnosis of Multiple Myeloma. Born January 5, 1955 she was the daughter of James P. and Elsie V. Miller who passed away in 1976 and 1992, respectively.
Peggy worked as a nurse for over 40 years at the old Charleroi Hospital, Mon Valley Hospital in the ICU, Albert Gallatin Home Health, and Century Cardiac Care in Monongahela. She was a strong and compassionate caregiver both in her long career as well as for family members, old friends, and neighbors over the years. She volunteered for years in her church, for Meals on Wheels, and for other community activities. She was a member of The Christian Mothers. She was always cooking and baking for loved ones and elderly friends and calling to check on those she cared about.
Peggy is survived by two daughters and sons-in law, Autum Kissinger (John) of Coraopolis and Charlee Hartley (Jason) of Charleroi. The lights of her life were her grandchildren Graysen Elise and Christian John Kissinger and Carsen Jean and Miller Martin Hartley. Peggy was the best “Grammy” ever, always babysitting, attending her grandkids’ activities, playing games with them, and baking their favorite treats.
Peggy is also survived by her siblings and in-laws James B. and Terri Miller, Bridget Roule, Janet and Todd O’Connell, Collette Miller and Jarret Catanzaro, Lisa Papini and John Boozer; her former husband and friend, Marty Foster; nieces and nephews; and many devoted lifelong friends. She was preceded in death by her parents, aunts and uncles, and her loving brother-in-law, Ronald Roule.
Peggy genuinely appreciated all the love and support she received during her six years of cancer treatment. Her family would like to thank Dr. Stanley Marks and his staff, especially Carrie, and the amazing nurses at Shadyside Hospital for their capable and compassionate care.
