Margaret Ann (Peggy) Colaiezzi (nee Koob)
Age 91 of Yeadon PA, and Media, PA was called home to the Lord on April 19, 2020. She was the beloved wife of the late Thomas J. Colaiezzi and the loving mother of Susan (Jeffrey) Short, Stephen (Sharon) Colaiezzi, Paul (Carrie) Colaiezzi, Ann (James) Brown, and Edward (Angela) Colaiezzi. She is also survived by 14 grandchildren, her sister-in-law Frances Koob, numerous nieces and nephews, and many friends. She was predeceased by her brother Philip Koob.
The daughter of Philip and Anna Mae (Shalvey) Koob, Peggy was a lifelong resident of Yeadon. She graduated from Yeadon High School and was a member of St. Louis Parish. She and Tom were married May 13, 1961. Peggy and Tom were members of Blessed Virgin Mary Parish in Darby where Peggy served as a Eucharistic Minister. For the past several years, Peggy was a resident of Granite Farms Estates in Media.
Peggy lived a rich and full life. She was a faithful and loving wife, mother, and friend. Peggy was blessed with soft eyes, a radiant smile, and a gentle touch that made all who knew her feel special. Devoted to her family, Peggy was a caring and selfless mother who supported her children’s dreams and drew great joy from their successes in life.
She was a cherished grandmother who never missed a concert, play, or dance recital. Peggy embraced everyone she met and adopted all her children’s friends as her own. She spent hours selecting the perfect card for every occasion, never forgetting a birthday or an anniversary. A card from Peggy was a steadfast reminder of her love and affection for you.
She will be dearly missed and forever in our hearts.
