January 13, 1951 ~ December 31, 2020 (age 69)


Marguerite "Peggy" (Dodd) Behrens of Roselle Park, NJ passed away peacefully on December 31, 2020 after a long illness at the age of 69.  Peggy was born on January 13, 1951 to the late Rita and Arthur Dodd Sr., in Elizabeth, New Jersey.  She worked for many years as an office manager for the law firm Fitzpatrick, Reilly, Supple and Gaul.  Peggy also volunteered for the Dominican Monastery of Our Lady of the Rosary in Summit, NJ.  Peggy loved spending time with her family and friends.  She will be deeply missed by all who had the pleasure of knowing her.  Though she was faced with many medical challenges throughout the years, she never let anything get in the way of her laughter.  She would smile and joke through the pain and would pray with her unshakable faith.
