Marjorie “Peggy” Tarantola, beloved wife, mother, and grandmother, passed away on Friday, October 29, 2021 in Pleasantville, NY. Her family and friends are deeply saddened by her unexpected loss.
Peggy was born on March 1st, 1951 in Brooklyn, NY to Mary and John Bierweiler and was joined by her cherished sister, Ellen, five years later. She met her sweetheart, Paul Tarantola, at age the age of 15 and they have been inseparable ever since as they prepared to celebrate their 48th wedding anniversary this coming December. She was at the heart of their home and could be seen helping Paul as a Dental Receptionist in his offices. In addition to Paul, Peggy is survived by their only daughter Elena, son-in-law Christopher, and three beautiful granddaughters (the center of her universe) - Olivia, Madeline and Charlotte.
Peggy had an undeniable passion for loving and caring for people. To know her was to know her kind heart. She also had a deep appreciation for flowers, which will carry on in her stunning gardens, as well as all things Dewey Beach. The footprints she made along the sand may no longer be but she will always live in our hearts.
The outpouring of love and floral arrangements has been so touching. At this time, in lieu of flowers, please make a donation to St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital or Autism Speaks. Thank you.
