MARGARET (PEG) RUMBAUGH
December 6, 1927 ˜ December 22, 2021
Wednesday morning, Dec. 22, 2021, Margaret (Peg) Rumbaugh, loving wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother passed away peacefully at the age of 94.
Peg was born in Steubenville, OH, on Dec. 6, 1927, to Fred and Margaret (Vaughan) Cunningham and lived most of her life in central Pennsylvania with her husband, Roy F. Rumbaugh and family until relocating to Vancouver, WA, in 2015 after the death of her husband. Peg and Roy were married for 65 years and raised three children: Kathy Santschi (Ken) of Vancouver, WA, Carol Rumbaugh of Vancouver, WA, and Roy N. Rumbaugh (Sandra) of Hudson, NH.
After graduating from Pennsylvania State University Peg taught home economics and worked in nutrition and later enjoyed her role as substitute music teacher. She was known for her love of birds, especially her beloved pet chickens. Peg was an active member in her church, loved music, played the viola, and sang with many chorale groups and church choirs in PA and WA. She performed in community theater, was a swimming instructor, and loved to read, travel and experience new places and people. Her sense of humor, deep faith, and love for family were evident every day of her life.
Peg will be deeply missed by her friends and family which includes six grandchildren, Mark Santschi (Melissa), Scott Santschi (Nicole), Doug Santschi (Bonnie), Sean Santschi (Emily), Samantha Wellington (Tom), and William Rumbaugh; and five great-grandchildren: Leo. Ari, Claire, and Caleb Santschi, and Naomi Wellington.
A memorial will be held in Vancouver, WA, and later in Pennsylvania to celebrate Peg’s life. In lieu of flowers, a contribution can be made to smiletrain.org
