Loving and devoted wife of 64 years to Joseph McGrath. Wonderful mother of Mike and Cathy McGrath, Colleen and Tim Lovegrove, Chris and Jim Dakin, Joe and Jayne McGrath, Jim and Christine McGrath, Ann Holtz and Murray Lake, Mary Scott and Steve McCombie. Special Nana of Jason, Justin (Michelle), Jonathan, Matthew (Laura), Brandon (Sarah), Jim (Sherri), Joe (Gaelle), Jason (Jenn), Tim (Catherine), Scott (Tiff), Andrew (Shauna), Christy (Jeff) and Nick (Alisa). “Nana the great” to Emily, Katie, Natalie, Emma, Luke, Grayson, Harrison, Beau and Caleb.

Predeceased by her parents Bill and Irene McCue, brother Bill McCue and son-in-law Pat Holtz. Our mom was a very special person. Patient, kind and generous. Joe was her “MAN” and they enjoyed many special trips together. An avid reader, homemaker, writer, weaver, sewer, music and shopping lover, and the list goes on. Enjoyed many fun adventures with her “Monday Night” girls. “Pool side Peg” was her snowbird name, enjoying many years in Florida. Mom started a second career later in life at Preston High School, where she was loved by both the staff and students. We will remember the fun we’ve had, the memories we’ve made and the Love which will go on forever. A very special thank you to the staff and volunteers at Innisfree House. Your kindness and compassion with mom and our big family was exceptional. Thank you to the staff at Cambridge Memorial Hospital for their care and support over the years and a special thank you to Dr. Khan and Shauna and Julie.
