Margaret "Peggy" Babcock

      Jan. 04, 1924- April 17, 2016

Margaret Peggy Babcock, 92 of Portland, passed away April 17, 2016. Peggy was born in Portland to Peter and Madge (Berryman) Kershisnik. She was raised with one sibling, Janet. Peggy graduated from Jefferson High School and also attended Vanport College. Peggy was proud of her service in the U.S. Marines. She served 4 years as a recruiter. During her time in the military, she met the love of her life, Floyd R. Babcock. They got married in 1952 and together they raised three children. Great conversationalist, fiery but loving, and devoted wife, mother and grandmother are just a few of the many words used to describe Peggy. Peggy was a avid reader and she enjoyed shopping and collecting greeting cards. Peggy was preceded in death by her husband and soulmate, Floyd; daughter, Margaret; and sister, Janet. She is survived by her sons, Peter (Linda) and Chris (Jennifer); grandchildren, Katie (Nathan), Lukas (Ashley), Collin, Sean (Elyse), Ellie (JP), Sheena (Dru), Angela (Evan), and Allison; great grandchildren, Ciera, Caleb, Gabriel, Logan, Eli, Owen, Annahbelle, Madelyn, and Nash; and niece, Laura. The family would like to send a special thank you to Dr. John Bauer and the staff of Marquis Mt. Tabor for the care they provided to Peggy and the family over the last several years. Peggy will be laid to rest in Williamette National Cemetery. A private committal service will be held. Please visit Peggy's memorial page at: www.batemancarrollfunerals.com.
