Peggy Lynn Naderman, 64, of North Salem, NY, died tragically at home on April 16, 2020, a victim of murder-suicide.

“The one tree in Francie’s yard was neither a pine nor a hemlock. It had pointed leaves, which grew along green switches which radiated from the bough and made a tree which looked like a lot of opened green umbrellas. Some people called it the Tree of Heaven.”
- A Tree Grows in Brooklyn by Betty Smith

Peggy was born in Michigan with fair coloring, a true Irish Rose, her family pronouncing her “our Pretty Baby”, a nickname that stuck throughout childhood. With a lively imagination, Peggy was restless and dreamed of a big city with bright lights.

She found her ticket out in 1973, when her sister Penny was offered a nanny position in New Rochelle. Peggy and Penny moved to New York together, looking back on that year as the “time of their lives”, working and living together at The Oaks Estate in Davenport Neck, a retreat for the nurses of Mount Sinai. Cab drivers who dropped them off or picked them up would often comment, “wow, your Dad did ok,” to which Peggy would respond, “thank you, he is a silk importer.” She and Penny would giggle all the way back to the estate.

Peggy met the love of her life, playing racquetball. She and Barry were married in March 1986 in Bear Mountain, NY. Peggy had several passions; her dogs, writing, tennis, music (flute and piano), traveling, cooking, entertaining, and many accomplishments, among them; Master Gardener, advanced equestrian and published author. Peggy loved her nieces and nephews and was always a big part of their lives. She traveled near and far to dance recitals, graduations, wedding, births, holidays, and birthdays.

Peggy is survived by her siblings: Penny and her husband, Gavin, of Lakewood Ranch, FL; Mitch and his wife, Janice, of Williamsburg, MI. She is also survived by her nieces, Lauren and Emily, her nephews, Tony, Nick, and Sean and Emily's husband, David Traficante; her grandniece, Evelyn; and her grandnephews, Colson and Corbin, as well as her mother Patricia Miller of Spring Hill, FL and her beloved Godmother and Aunt, Mary Pappas of Trenton, MI. Peggy is predeceased by her father James Pappas.

Peggy’s sister Penny writes, “My sister gave me a necklace in January 2020. It was sterling silver, branches on a tree and came with these words: Family. Like branches on a tree we all grow in different directions but our roots keep us all together.

“We are still together, the roots spread a little farther to Francie’s Tree of Heaven.”

Suicidal older adults may represent significant danger to their partners, in addition to themselves. As many as 20 adults aged 60+ are killed each week in murder-suicides, and it’s suggested these events are on the rise. Firearms are used in 91 percent of homicide-suicides, making guns the most common catalytic component in this particular crime.

Find out whether your older loved ones have firearms in the home. If you suspect despondency, we urge you to take steps to have guns removed from the home.

My dear friend Erica, and I had the pleasure of meeting Peggy three years ago. We always looked up to her. She was such a great role model. She hosted the best parties, and we were there to help assist her with them. From gardening parties, to Christmas parties - they were all as fabulous as she was. Her love for her pupsters always warmed my heart. Peggy was always so generous with Erica and I. Thanks to Peggy, I tried caviar for the first time, ever. No better person than Peggy to introduce me to that. Peggy will be deeply missed, and I will forever cherish the few moments I shared with her. My condolences to her family during such difficult times.

I am so sad to hear this news. Peggy and I were good friends in high school. She had a vibrant personality and lovely smile. We had many fun adventures together! I still have the Cat Stevens album she gave me. We discussed her plans to move to NY with Penny. Thanks to Peggy, I asked a boy to a Sadie Hawkins dance in High School. I'd been trying to work up the courage to ask him but chickened out. She didn't know I had chickened out. In "The Commons", Peggy called out to my crush, "So, are you going to the dance with Sue?" Of course, I HAD to ask him then. That guy and I ended up dating for 4 years! Oh Peggy! I miss you!

I have not seen or been in touch with Peggy in many years. We were first cousins, Jim, her father, and Helen Bisiorek were brother and sister. I moved away to Virginia and that ended our correspondence. Also, I was almost 20 years older then she was. I do remember her though, and the visits we had when we all lived in Michigan. I am so sorry for your loss. It is never easy to lose a loved one who was family and friend.

Thank you Patty. We loved our visits to Detroit. Auntie Helen was always so sweet to us. My sister was a great girl. We were best of friends through life. I took Peg to kindergarten with me for show and tell when she broke her arm. We had tea parties with Mitch, he left when the graham crackers were gone. We spent two weeks at a horse ranch, moved to NY, lived and worked together, Peg came with me on my honeymoon, hosted my daughter's baby shower last year and visited us in January, that was the last time I saw her. We had big plans for the future, she left much too soon. I miss my Peggy

When my sons Daniel and Joseph were children they especially liked Peggy because she spoke to them like real people, asked questions and really listened. She probably knew more about me and my work than most people. She asked meaningful questions, listened, and would remember even a year or more later when we were at a family occasion. She was vibrant, lovely, talented. The loss is terrible. Sincere condolences go out to her family.

The loss is terrible. My sister loved children, she paid close attention. Her nieces grew up with their Aunt Peggy celebrating milestones with them, traveling from afar for births, recitals, graduations, birthdays. Peggy was thoughtful, caring, fun loving, quick witted, action packed. She left us too soon, we had big plans. Happy Trails To You Dear Sister, Until We Meet Again

Peggy was a much loved Master Gardener Volunteer here at CCEDC, and very active. I’d like to share some of the comments the other MGs wrote when they learned of her death.
 Peggy was a bright light in the world and will be missed.
 I loved her sense of humor and optimism.
 She always put a smile on my face.
 I worked with Peggy in the greenhouse. That shared time always made for a better day. What struck me was the obvious interest she showed as we chatted. She was truly concerned when we spoke of things that concerned me and genuinely shared laughter when something caught her fancy. She fit anywhere. Had great life experiences, interests, and well traveled. And although I am not any of those things, she made me feel comfortable spending time together. If there was work to be done, she dove in. If it was time for a break, she was the one you’d like to share it with.
 She always showed great class and style. And freely extended friendship. There has Always been a lot to love about Peggy Naderman. She will always be in my heart and memory as one of the best ladies I’ve ever had the good fortune to have known.
 Sadly, I didn’t know her well but when I'd see her I always smiled. I don’t know why, but she just made me feel like the group was complete when I’d see her at a meeting. “Peggy's here now we can start...”
Several of us remember with great fondness when Peggy and Barry hosted our annual MG Plant Swap five years ago. Peggy did not just host, she threw us a party. With a jazz band. As each MG arrived she signaled the band leader who announced each person with a fun tidbit she wrote about them. We relaxed by the pool with food from a buffet. Just as our business meeting was about to begin, it started to rain, then pour. We scrambled to get ourselves and band and their instruments indoors. With great poise, Peggy provided fluffy towels, and we proceeded with the meeting their kitchen. An amazing lady indeed

My sister told me about the party and the band she had lined up. She feared rain but made the best of it. Peggy held her niece's baby shower at her home one year ago. As the date approached, she called, it has been raining for two weeks. We proceeded with the shower on May 18. It was a perfect day, sunny and 70 degrees. Nineteen people traveled from various states. Peggy and Barry were gracious and interested in each guest. They loved to entertain and were good at it. They made you comfortable,met your needs, your plate was full, your glass refilled and talk was good. Peggy was one of a kind. My sister will be missed every single day.
