Margaret Borough Obituary

Margaret Ann Borough, 90, of Tiffin, passed away on Wednesday, May 24, 2023 at Randall Residence in Tiffin.

Peg was born December 11, 1932, in Weston, West Virginia, to the late Raymond J. and Mary E. (Swan) Dayton. She married Robert W. Borough in Fort Seneca on June 18, 1954 and he preceded her in death on April 26, 2012.

Survivors include her children, Rene (Greg) Haubert of Tiffin, Bobbie (Wesley) Hedges of Tiffin, Dr. Pamela (Rick) Lavrich of Upper Saddle River, NJ, ten grandchildren, Kyle (Cesar) Hill, Hannah (Tyler) Hoehn, Morgan (John) Timmons, Logan (Hailey) Haubert, Chad (Sarah) McCalla, Rachael (Matt) DeLauro, Michael (Marcela) McCalla, Reilly, Aiden, Olwen Lavrich, eleven great-grandchildren, a brother, David Dayton of Columbus and a sister, Helen Harris.

Peg worked the family farm with her husband for many years. She would be right out there driving tractor for him. Their farm is a fifth generation farm with the sixth and seventh in line. She was called Peg by her family and friends and Peggy by Bob. Along with working on the family farm, Peg also worked as a telephone operator and was a member of Fort Seneca United Church of Christ. She was a graduate of Fairmont West Virginia High School.

Bob and Peg were married 58 years and built a beautiful life together full of travel, farming, and family. Peg was a talented seamstress, with a passion for cross stitch and quilting. She thoroughly enjoyed mastering puzzles, sitting in the sunshine at the lake and listening to country music. She cooked from her heart, and spoke from her soul and her funny bone.

Peg was compassionate and encouraging, a true cheerleader of life to those around her. She was a role model — humble, the epitome of strength and admiringly honest. Peg was a loyal friend, a warm and caring grandmother, a strong and patient mother and a loving and devoted wife. For those who loved her, her smile will shine in their eyes. Her laugh will ring in their ears. Her hugs will warm their skin, and her spirit will live on in their hearts. She will forever be loved and missed.

Peg was preceded in death by her parents, husband, two brothers, Raymond Dayton and Fred Dayton, two sisters, Jeanette Morgan and Lottie Schroen.

There will be a Celebration of Peg’s Life held at 1:00 p.m., Sunday, July 23, 2023 at the family farm, 5534 North State Route 53 in Tiffin with a luncheon to follow. ALL ARE WELCOME. There will be a private family burial held at Pleasant Union cemetery in Old Fort. The Engle-Shook Funeral Home & Crematory in Tiffin is assisting the family with their arrangements.
