MARGARET “PEG” AGER (nee Martin), age 92. Beloved wife of the late Louis Ager; dearest mother of Nancy Vitale (husband Jonathan), Barbara Hengesbach (deceased) (Leo) and James Ager (deceased) (Cynthia DiFranco Sanders); loving grandmother of Robert Hengesbach (Kelly), Matthew, Michael and Amanda Ager, and Caroline, Elizabeth and Timothy Vitale; great-grandmother of Gideon and Jude. Peg graduated from Cleveland Heights High School in 1943, then attended Dyke College for secretarial training. She was extremely proficient in shorthand among other administrative skills and worked as an executive secretary at the M.A. Hanna Company in downtown Cleveland for 13 years until the birth of her first child in 1956. She had married Louis Ager, the brother of a childhood friend, in 1951. For the next 20 years her work was at home as a fulltime mother. She volunteered throughout her life at the Church of the Good Shepherd and in parent groups in the South Euclid-Lyndhurst School District, where she was honored with a PTA State Life Membership. In 1976 she became the church secretary at Messiah Lutheran Church for thirty-nine years, retiring in 2015 at the age of 89. She loved to cook, dine out, travel, knit and garden. She was a woman of great faith, generosity, and compassion, who possessed an exceptional gift for listening and making those around her feel special. Above all, she loved God and her family very much and was loved very much in return.
