Margaret Jean "Peggy" Norcross

Margaret “Peggy” Norcross passed into the arms of the Savior that she loved on Wednesday, April 6, 2022, at the age of 90. Peggy was born May 26, 1931, to Howard and Frances (Withrow) Haight.  Peggy was a devoted wife and mother who always put others before herself. She was a charter member of Berean Baptist Church where she taught Sunday School for many years, sang in the choir and was active in the Ladies Missionary Fellowship. Camping with her family and grandchildren was something she always enjoyed. Peggy worked for many years as a registered nurse at Bronson Hospital where she met the love of her life whom she called “her Robert.”

Peggy is survived by her husband of 66 years, Bob Norcross; children, Brian Norcross, Karen (Tim) Norton, and Sharon (Brad) Love; grandchildren, Karissa (Brad) Hawley, Taryn Love, Tatum Love and Kyle Norton (Jasmine Campbell-Fagan); great grandchildren, Jude, Alice and Crosby Hawley; three very special friends, Clara Hasenick, Kathy Hall and Barb Schaafsma and her many dear friends at StoryPoint; and several special nieces and nephews. Peggy is preceded in death by her parents and her beloved sister, Betty Barrie. 

A memorial service is scheduled for Wednesday, April 13th at 11:30 at Berean Baptist Church on 12th Street in Portage, Michigan. A light luncheon will follow. 

The family would like to send a special thank you to the entire staff at StoryPoint including caregivers, hospice care, food service, housekeeping, office staff and administration during this difficult journey. 

In lieu of flowers donations can be made to Bronson Methodist Hospital School of Nursing Alumni Scholarship, 1903 West Michigan Ave., Kalamazoo Mi  49008.

Mr. Norcross, Brian and Family, I am saddened to hear of the passing of your loved one. Although I never met her, I can see from her photo she had an infectious smile. God bless and remember her memories live in your hearts forever. My thoughts and prayers are with your family.

Bob- what a blessing you and Peggy (she smiled from her ❤) have been been throughout my life! Years back when you came to Briarhill to visit Karen & family. Sharing your "grandpa attention" with Karissa & Kyle as well as my 2 younger ones, Justin & Sarah was much appreciated! Then years later with Barry. I think of you & Peggy weekly as I do Bible study with one of your extra ones. You & Peggy did a wonderful job sharing your faith and Karen modeled that for me.😘
