SOPHIE D. “PEGGY” (MITRANO) MORRISON – of Woburn, died peacefully with her family by her side on March 28th at the age of 91. Peggy was the beloved wife of the late John E. “Jack” Morrison.

Born and raised in Somerville, Peggy was the daughter of the late Luigi and Elizabeth (Magliozzi) Mitrano. Married to Jack for more than 57 years. She was proud of her Marine and forever telling the story of their courtship.  We will always remember her zest for life and sense of style.  She had some of her happiest moments at Beach Acres in Maine.  She remained active and looked forward to her weekly coffee dates and monthly lunches with “the girls”.  But nothing brought her more joy than her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren.

    Peggy was a devoted friend. I met her when I married her cousin, Alexander Mitrano, in 1958 and we became very close. Peggy and Jack would drop in unexpected and we loved their company. One time she came over and my water broke; she ended up baby-sitting as I left for the hospital. When she didn’t drive anymore we became phone pals. She will always be in my heart and I will miss her. To know her is to love her for her beautiful smile, her happiness was contagious.

    Rest in peace my beautiful friend

    “There are places I’ll remember; All my life, though some have changed. Some forever, not for better
    Some have gone and some remain.

    All these places had their moments, With lovers and friends, I still can recall, Some are dead and some are living; In my life, I’ve loved them all”

    Love you Peggy,

    Mary Spinosa-Haladay

    I knew this day would inevitably arrive, however in my mind (or denial), I believed my Aunt Peggy would live to be 100yrs. Her passing is devasting to me. She was always, always cheerful, optimistic, happy, loving and compassionate each and every time we spoke which was atleast once a week. She would say to me, “honey, wrap your arms around and give yourself a big hug to know that it is me who is hugging and loving you.” She would cook the “best” Pasta Fazul ever which she made for me one last time in ‘2018. My heart and blessings go to my cousins, John, Lori, Karen and Debra Jean. Each of her children banded together in taking care of her for years whether it was to help with her with projects, taking her to doctor appts., running errands and medical care. My Aunt Peggy truly raised her children well, emphasizing the importance of family staying close, not allowing differences to ever separate them and mostly to “always” be there for each other in support as families should be. Her children, grand and greatgrandkids where her life she proudly cherished. I sincerely believe Aunt Peggy was a positive example of a “stellar” Matriarch. You were so special to me. I will miss you forever!

  8. I love Peggy very much She loved that Deb,Karen, Sandy and I all git together time to time and I enjoyed our church going and breakfast on Sundays RIP Peggy you will be missed
