Obituary for Peggy P. Elliott

Peggy Pegram Elliott, longtime resident of Lincoln, MA, passed away peacefully in her sleep April 12, 2019, at the Commons in Lincoln, where she had been residing for the last two and a half years.

Born in Houston, TX on December 28, 1931, Peggy spent most of her childhood in Boerne, TX. She attended St. Mary’s Hall in San Antonio through twelfth grade, and received her undergrad in English at University of Texas. She later moved to Chicago, where she met Bill (William G.) Elliott, the love of her life, whom she married in 1957. Bill and Peggy moved to Massachusetts to pursue Bill’s studies and work pursuits, living in Lexington for several years until settling in Lincoln in 1962.

Peggy was active in local and national politics, was a Registrar of Voters for the town of Lincoln, and was instrumental in starting the Lincoln recycling committee. She was also a homemaker who raised four children. She had a love for community theatre - from acting and dancing in Lincoln Players in the ‘60s, to producing large musicals for the Concord Players well into the 2000s. In the 1980s, Peggy got her Masters in Social Work, and worked with various agencies until her retirement. More recently, Peggy was active in the Lincoln Council on Aging. She would go dancing whenever possible.

Peggy is predeceased by Bill, who passed away in 2014. She is survived by her children Mark, Lincoln MA; Randy (William R.), Pawtucket RI; Jocelyn, Lincoln, MA; and Lawrence, Brooklyn, NY. Also her sister, Joyce Jones, Memphis, TN; her grandchildren Zachary, Deerfield, MA; Jack (Vilas), Charlotte, NC; and Elizabeth (Vilas), Amherst, MA; and her step grandchildren Terese (Quirk), Lincoln, MA; Thomas (Quirk), Lowell, MA; and Tim (Quirk), Durham, NH.

Memorial Services will be held at 10am in the First Parish Church, 14 Bedford Rd., Lincoln, MA on Sat. June 1. Her ashes will be interred at a future date with her family in Boerne, TX.

Donations in lieu of flowers may be made to the Lincoln Council on Aging, c/o Town offices, 16 Lincoln Rd., Lincoln, MA 01773
