Margaret Rose “Peggy” Mayer, a Denver resident for 47 years, passed away April 25, 2020, in Englewood. Rabbi Salomon Gruenwald and Cantor Marvin Sonenreich officiated at the April 28 private graveside service at Mt. Nebo Cemetery. Feldman Mortuary made the arrangements.
“My mother was a kind, caring and loving individual,” her son Jonathan says. “She always put the needs of others before herself.
“Mom took such great care of her father in his later years. When he became unable to care for himself, she took it upon herself to care for him without question.”
Jonathan says that he and his mother shared a very close bond that transcended the mother-son relationship.
“She was my best friend,” he says. “Our daily contact, whether it be texts or phone calls, was so loving. I will miss my visits to Mom the most, and I will always hold her dearly in my heart.”
