Margaret “Peg” Weeks passed away on Feb. 10, 2021. She was 95.
She was born Dec. 1, 1925 in Stamford, the daughter of the late Lucy Bruggerhof and Norris Edward Pierson of Darien.
She attended Low-Heywood School and graduated from Wykeham Rise School and from Wheaton College in 1947. She was a medical technologist with Sloan Kettering Institute and with Stamford Hospital from 1947 to 1953. In 1970 she received an M.L.S. from Pratt Institute Library School, and was a librarian at Low-Heywood School until 1981.
A former Vestry member of Saint Luke’s Episcopal Church, she was active in its Altar Guild as well as in Person-to-Person and in Literacy Volunteers. She also served on Darien’s Representative Town Meeting.
She will always be remembered for her kindness, generosity, and love that was driven by her desire for justice, especially for those less fortunate, and her abiding faith. She will be greatly missed by all who had the good fortune to know her.
She was predeceased by her beloved husband, Kenneth S. Weeks; her sister, Lucy Ann Ramsey; and brother, Edward Norris Pierson. She is survived by her four children: Paul Weeks (Beverly) of Bristol, New Hampshire; Brad Weeks (Karen) of Wallingford; Katy Kopetz (Michael) of Bourne, Massachusetts; and Carrie DiProspero (Ken) of New Hartford; five grandchildren and one great-grandchild.
We are immensely grateful to Mary Mchugh, who was our families’ eyes and ears, and most importantly a consistent loving presence for our mother during this time of Covid, and whose regular presence brought great comfort to our family.
We thank the entire staff at Bridges by Epoch of Mashpee where Peg received the best of care during her last five years, you became Peg’s family, and by extension, ours.
Finally, we are so very grateful for the exceptional care from all of the staff at Beacon Hospice, with special thanks to Lisa.
