Share your Memorial with Family & Friends

Margaret “Peggy” Sheehan, age 81 and a lifelong resident of West Scranton, passed away Wednesday evening at Geisinger Community Medical Center in Scranton, after an illness. On August 18, 2004, Peggy was preceded in death by her beloved husband of 44 years, Robert J. Sheehan.
Born on July 8, 1940, and daughter of the late Reese and Dorothy (Schmidt) Heycock, Peggy was a graduate of West Scranton High School. Upon raising her family, she worked at Supermarket Services prior to her retirement and remained a proud member of the Local Teamsters #229.
Peggy loved to travel anywhere and everywhere with her family. A fixture at the casino, she never met a slot machine she didn’t enjoy playing. Above all else came her family, especially her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. She was kind, caring, loving and she’ll be forever missed by her loved ones.
A faithful Roman Catholic, she was a devoted member of the former St. David’s Church, prior to its closure, and now a member of St. Patrick’s Parish.
She is survived by her loving family; children, Robert Sheehan and wife Christina of Thornhurst, Scott Sheehan of Scranton and Lori Ann Cadora of Pittston; her five grandchildren, Darren, Robert, Brianna, Brittany and Stephanie; her adored great grandchildren, Stella and Marla; her siblings, Dorothy King of Scranton and Fran Dibileo and husband Louis of Scranton; and many nieces and nephews.
Two brothers, Reese and infant William Heycock, also preceded her in death.
Her family will be forever grateful to Dr. Gerard Nealon for his kindness, compassion and time spent going above and beyond the call of his duties to care for Peggy.
A Mass of Christian Burial is scheduled for Saturday at 10:00 AM at St. Patrick’s Church, 1403 Jackson Street in Scranton, to be celebrated by Rev. Richard Fox, Pastor. Burial will follow at the Cathedral Cemetery in West Scranton. Family and friends may pay their respects on Saturday from 9:00 AM until Mass at the church and those attending the funeral are asked to go directly to church.
Arrangements are under the care of the Kevin K. Kearney Funeral Home, Inc., 125 North Main Avenue, Scranton.
