Peggy Steiner, 52, most recently of Woonsocket, Rhode Island, born Peggy Smith on September 14th, 1970, was the daughter of the late Norbert and Sheila Smith, and the sister of Steve, Mark, Pat (deceased), Roger, Lois, and Joanne. She fought a long courageous battle, against cancer, and left this life on September 1st, 2023.
Peggy is survived by her husband, Jon, her son, Tyler Hinz, his wife, Rachel, dogs Layla, Penny, and Maggie, a cluster of cats too long to list here, and a large extended family.
Peggy was born in Canandaigua, NY, but her family moved to Las Vegas when she was young. The glitz and glamour couldn’t keep her properly entertained and she returned to New York as a teenager, where she graduated from Victor High School. Peggy spent most of her life working with, and as a champion for, animals of all kinds. This includes her husband, Jon, whom she met while they both lived in Upstate New York. He quickly became part of her pack, and was an integral part of her furry and frantic life. They moved their zoo numerous times and finally ended up in Woonsocket Rhode Island.
Peggy loved to spend time with family and friends, and always had a story to add to the conversation. Most involved her precious son, Ty, her experience with an immeasurable number of animals of every description, and her desire to travel and explore. Regardless of the topic, every story had a touch of her special joy for life.
Despite the challenges Peggy encountered throughout her life, especially those in last few years, she maintained a positive outlook, was always looking to the future and never stopped setting far reaching goals for herself.
A memorial for Peggy will begin at 4 pm on Wednesday, September 13th, 2023, with a service from 5:30-6 pm at the North Chemung United Methodist Church, 677 Breeseport/N. Chemung Rd, Lowman NY. Dinner will be served following.
In lieu of flowers or donations, the family would ask you to do what Peggy loved best; spend time enjoying the company of your loved ones and any animal near enough to scratch behind the ears.
