Margaret Ann “Peggy” Horner

Margaret Ann “Peggy” Horner

May 25, 1953 – October 13, 2021

Peggy (Margaret Ann) Horner, 68, passed away peacefully, surrounded by family, on October 13, 2021. Peggy was born in O’Neill, Nebraska on May 25, 1953. She was the third of six children.

Peggy was an incredible cook and loved to host family gatherings. She especially loved kids, and truly enjoyed spending time with her nieces, nephews, grandnieces and grandnephews as they grew up. She was Irish through and through and loved to root for Notre Dame. Peggy loved bulldogs, fishing, sewing, dancing, making stained glass, and her parrot Dolly; but most of all she loved her family and friends and was always there for them.

Peggy was loved by all who knew her and will be dearly missed. It’s hard to forget someone who gave you so much to remember.

Peggy’s wish was to be cremated and have her ashes travel between her family members’ homes to continue to spend time with them. (You might want to look under your bed; you never know where she will turn up.)

Peggy was preceded in death by her parents, Rex and Margaret Horner. She is survived by her siblings: Judy Reed (Larry) of Bellevue NE, Dorothy Kramer (Leon) of Stuart NE, Barb Simanek of Lexington KY, Rosemary Horner of Omaha, and John Horner (Ana) of Omaha; numerous nieces, nephews, grandnieces, and grandnephews.

VISITATION: Saturday, October 23, 2021, from 1pm to 3pm at the West Center Chapel, followed by a CELEBRATION OF LIFE from 3pm to 4pm.  The family requests that masks be worn. Memorials are suggested to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

    Peggy was truly too good for this world. I am the person I am today partially because of her.

    To the Horner family. This is your cousin my dad was Floyd Horner. As kids we spent time together. I wanted to express my condolences. Peggy had the most infectious laugh that I remember. It is so sad to read of her passing. May your memories bring you comfort at this time. Renee Horner
