Margaret Killian

Margaret “Peggy” Killian passed peacefully at her home in Mattituck on Sunday, July 3, with her husband Bill at her side. 

She was born in Brooklyn, Jan. 10, 1923, and later married William Killian. They celebrated 70 years of marriage on May 18.

Peggy was an avid real estate salesperson with Celic Realty in Mattituck. Her gift for gab went unmatched; not so much her selling of houses, said family members.

She leaves behind her husband Bill; daughter Peggy; sons Bill Jr. and Charlie and his wife Pat; granddaughters Krista, Heather and Courtney and great-granddaughter Michaela.

The Liturgy of Christian Burial will be celebrated at 10 a.m. Friday, July 8, at Our Lady of Good Counsel R.C. Church in Mattituck. Monsignor Joseph W. Staudt will officiate.

Interment will follow at Sacred Heart R.C. Cemetery in Cutchogue.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Susan G. Komen Foundation; P.O. Box 650309 Dallas, TX 75265-0309.

DeFriest-Grattan Funeral Home is assisting the family.

This is a paid notice.
