GRESKO, Peggy J.

September 23, 2009

 GRESKO, Peggy J.  Age 43.  Dear daughter of Matt and Pat (nee Porterfield).  Loving sister of Jacqie Gresko-Kidd and Michael.  Cherished aunt of Danielle and Alexandra, and great aunt of Madison and Catherine.  Loved by many uncles, aunts, cousins, and friends.  

 Peggy resided in the Parma area all of her life.  She attended Incarnate Word Academy and was a graduate of Holy Name High School.  She earned a BA in business from Ashland University and enjoyed the business field throughout her life, although it was to the computer field that her education and training eventually led her.  Through her broad-based technology skills she excelled as an IT Specialist where she found Testing and Training most rewarding.  During her professional career she was employed with Legacy Health, Solomon Software and, for the past five years, Intuit.

Peggy enjoyed all opportunities to travel both alone or with friends.  She never turned down the chance to take a cruise, and on a trip to Italy several years ago, fell completely under the spell of the beauty and the people of Tuscany.  A trip “Down Under” was in her future…

She loved sports, and The Cleveland Browns could enthusiastically claim Peggy as one of their faithful season ticket holders.  Peggy persevered in these activities despite many health challenges over the years.  She met life head-on and refused to be sidelined by adversity.  Along the way, she realized coveted rewards for overcoming medical issues, such as the Browns tickets, and the acquistion of her beloved canine companion, Kody, or packing her bags for yet another trip.

Peggy left us all too soon and will be fondly remembered with joy by her family and numerous friends.  She is an inspiration in our lives showing all who knew her how to live and love…
