Peggy Anne Rupp, 91, went home to her Lord and Savior on October 28th, 2020. Born in Ephrata to the late Lloyd and Lillian (Zell) Peiffer, she was the wife of Harold D. Rupp with whom she shared 71 years of marriage.

Peggy lived a life of service and was an active member of the Ephrata Grace E.C. Church for 86 years where she served in the Missionary Society, served on the Ladies’ Aid committee, sang in the choir, volunteered in the nursery, and played on the church’s bowling league. She volunteered in her community at Maple Farm Nursing Home and Meals on Wheels. She was also a member of the Ephrata Historical Society, Ephrata Golden Years Club, Ephrata Women’s Club and was involved in many activities at Brethren Village, where she lived for the last 9 years.

Peggy graduated from Ephrata High School in 1947 and worked at Gate’s Candy, Carter’s Pharmacy, Martin’s Studio, Village Square Gift shop, H.F. Weit’s and Michelle’s Hallmark in Ephrata where she retired at age 85. Peggy loved working at "the gift shop" where she enjoyed helping customers pick out special cards, and famously wrapping gifts to perfection. She made many lasting friendships with her co-workers and loyal customers.

Peggy loved to travel. She made scrapbooks of all her travels over the United States and Europe, as well as beach trips with her family and the Golden Years Club.

Most of all Peggy loved spending time with her family. She treasured going to her sons’, grandkids’, and great grandkids’ sporting events, musicals, concerts, and celebrations. Her kids and grandchildren will always cherish the memories of going to her house on Sunday nights to visit and eat snacks, and have cookouts.

In addition to her husband, Peggy is survived by sons, Barry (Libby) Rupp of Ephrata and Bryan (the late Denise) Rupp of Ephrata; grandchildren, Michelle (Todd) Ruth of Ephrata, Kim (Paul) Gockley of Ephrata, Jen Boyer of Wyomissing, Ben (Karla) Rupp of Lancaster, and Carrie (Mark) McKernan of Ephrata; great grandchildren, Mackenzie and Brenden Ruth, Anna, Owen, and Adam Gockley, Trey and Addy Boyer, Cameron and Calvin Rupp, and Cora McKernan. She is also survived by sisters, Jane (James) Allen of Indiana, June (Bud) Garner of Ephrata, and Carole (Joel) Hiestand of Ephrata.

She was preceded in death by a brother John Peiffer in 2016 and beloved daughter-in-law Denise in April of 2020.

Due to Covid, there will be a private service at the convenience of the family.

In lieu of flowers, contributions in Peggy’s memory can be made to Brethren Village Benevolence Fund, 3001 Lititz Pike, Lititz, PA 17543 or Grace E.C. Church, 131 Terrace Avenue, Ephrata, PA 17522.

The Rupp family has my deepest sympathies. Was saddened to hear of Peggy's passing. I got to know her when the Akron, Brownstown and Rothsville churches held their joint "Night of Music." She was a lovely woman who I saw, through the years, at church events, and later when she worked for Michelle's Hallmark. Would often bump into her at Martin's Market. She always had a smile and a sweet way about her. May God grant you comfort during this difficult time.

Dear "Ruppy" and Family,
Don and I want to extend our deepest sympathies to you and the rest of the family. Of course, our families go way back to when Pauline was a high school classmate and very close friend of Peggy. Don remembers the couples playing cards and visiting.
He said when he visited Grandma Good on Cherry Street, Ruppies lived down the street from Elsie. My memory of "Ruppies" are the softball days when Ashley (our daughter) and Carrie (Denise's and Brian's daughter) played. They were always there to support the girls! And I worked with Denise at Dr. Camerino's office sharing stories of the family! On behalf of the remainder of the "Martin Boys" - Tom & Esther; Bill & Diane; Tony & Deb, sympathies to all.
Take care, Ruppy!
Donnie & Bonnie Martin

Dear Family and Friends of Peggy ,
I only knew Peggy here at BV and only through playing Pinochle with her on Tue. eve. I was very privileged to know this lovely lady. I think I was one of the last BV residents to talk with her this past Mon. eve because we rode up to 1st floor on the elevator wit her after Pinochle was over. I was very shocked and saddened when I heard she had passed away. May you find comfort and peace in your faith, your wonderful memories and in the support of so many friends. But we only said an "earthly "Good-bye" for now. Some day we will be able to rejoice when we meet her in eternity!.
Blessings to you!

I just learned about Peggy's passing and wanted to send my thoughts and sympathy to all of you in her family. We, certainly, have been lifelong friends. I will miss knowing that she is "there" when I need to touch base with somebody from my parents' generation. She was a great talker and always seemed to have the "inside scoop" on what was going on in her life and the lives of persons close to her. Hope you all keep well and safe!
