Peggy’s local claim to fame was leading the Senior Girl Scout Troop 159, with members in Slatington, Slatedale, and New Tripoli. Under her guidance, the girls raised money to offset half the cost of a two-week tour of England, Scotland and Ireland in 1969. Peggy’s ambition was to let them see what was possible, and they did. We thank you for that! Peggy loved these girls like her own, and they have returned that respect to her over the years.
Peggy is preceded in death by her parents, her sister Carol Ann Musto, her son Peter Michael Anthony, her niece Lisa Snyder, her first husband William Earl Anthony and her closest friend and consort Gail Haldeman. Peggy leaves behind her husband Carl Bauer, her sisters Mary Kathlyn Garrison and Star Lakavage (husband Michael Shelby Walker) and her niece Sheilah Michaels (husband Michael McCord). We would like to thank the very gracious and competent staff at Fellowship Manor and a special thank you to their Furnace Road family for all of their friendship, kindness, help and attention over the years.
On Wednesday, October 20, 2021 at 10 a.m., a funeral mass will be held in the Catholic Church of the Assumption, 649 W Washington St, Slatington, followed by a funeral in Slatedale Cemetery. Please, at Peggy’s request, no flowers, but take advantage of these thoughts by sending a donation to the Catholic Church of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary. The preparations are in the hands of Harding Funeral Home, Slatington, www.hardingfuneralhomeinc.com
