Peggy Chung

MONONA-Peggy Chung, age 59, of Monona, passed away on Sept. 23, 2012, at the UW Hospital of complications from multiple myeloma. She was born on Oct. 25, 1952, in New York City to Margaret Mettler. She married her husband Jayson Chung in 1983. Peggy was a woman of uncommon vitality, creativity, and warmth. Many were lucky to have enjoyed the generosity of her spirit. That great spirit kept a body that had seen much hardship going for a long, long time. People, plants, and animals all loved her and are thankful for her.

Peggy is survived by her husband; her son, Coleman; and her sister Joanna.

Cremation will take place and services will not be held. However, a celebration in her memory is planned at OLBRICH BOTANICAL GARDENS on Friday, Nov. 9, 2012. Further information as well as suggestions for donations in lieu of flowers will be posted at
