Obituary for Margaret "Peg" Fitton

Margaret (Peg) McGough McCabe Fitton, 97 year old mother of 10, died yesterday (March 12) at home surrounded by her family.

Margaret (Peg), born in NYC in1923, was a longtime, very involved, resident of LaBar Village, Stroudsburg PA. After a career as a nurse, she owned and operated a nursery school. But her joy was loving and raising her large family.

During WW2 Margaret married Leo McCabe. And she always felt her major accomplishment was raising their much loved family of ten children: Irene (Frank) LeFebvre); Timothy (Nancy) McCabe; Edward (Jenine) McCabe; Judith (Dennis) Seelbach); Patricia (Bud) Sanders; Leo McCabe; Catherine (Stack) Karpilo; Kevin (Olga) McCabe; Susan (Matt) Boyle; Christopher McCabe. She greatly loved and followed with pride the activities of her 43 Grand children and 54 Great-Grandchildren.

After Leo’s death Margaret married Jerry Fitton and welcomed four beloved step-children, their spouses and children. Peg and Jerry traveled extensively covering 49 states, Ireland, Portugal, Canada, Holy Land and Australia. Over the years they also attended numerous WW2 AirCorps Reunions.

Margaret was predeceased by her loved and admired sister Theresa, her brother Bernard, her ‘sister-cousin’ Mary O’Brien and her eldest nephew John Tiernan.
