Margaret Donnelly Obituary

Margaret Ann Donnelly, “Peg”, 90, of Naugatuck, passed away on December 27, 2023 with her loving family by her side. She was born September 18, 1933; a daughter to the late William and Nora (Dwyer) Maguire.

Peg was a devoted wife, mother and Nana, always surrounding herself with the love of her family. She enjoyed entertaining and having people visit her home.  Her greatest joy was spending time with her grandchildren. You could always find Nana at school plays, sporting events, graduations, school celebrations passing out a special “goodie” bag for her “superstars”.  She loved gardening and the color pink. Family vacations to the Dayton House in Myrtle Beach were a fond memory. Peg loved the beach and the ocean, always making sure she brought along her pot of pasta and a “special” plate for her brother-in-law. 

Peg leaves behind to treasure her memory her devoted and loving husband Raymond Donnelly of 68 years, her children: Noreen (Frank) Shea of Myrtle Beach, Linda (Jim) Harkin of Wolcott, and Randy Donnelly of Prospect, her 11 grandchildren: Kelly Shea, Shannon Garbauskas, JJ, John, and Michael Harkin, Melissa, Rosie, Kat, Casey, Ryan, and Erin Donnelly, her brother Bill Maguire and her sisters Kathleen DeMatteo (Carl) and Mary Finlay. In addition, she leaves behind her sisters-in-law Ginny Donnelly and Toni Maguire, her former daughter-in-law Mary Donnelly, and several nieces, nephews, and cousins. She was predeceased by her brother Jim Maguire. The family would like to extend their thanks to her special caregivers, Celeste, Jennifer and Jenna.

Peg and Ray were inseparable and great companions. You wouldn’t see one without the other and she will be greatly missed.
