Obituary for Margaret A. "Peg" Lawlor

Margaret A. “Peg” (Doyle) Lawlor, 90, of Lower Gwynedd, PA died on July 28, 2018 at Spring House Estates. She was the loving wife of the late John Henry Lawlor. Peg was born in Philadelphia, PA on September 15, 1927 to the late Jerry Doyle (Nationally Syndicated Political Cartoonist of Philadelphia Daily News, Philadelphia Record, and NY Post) and Marguerite “Muz” (O’Brien) Doyle. She worked for Keystone Fire Protection for many years. Peg loved traveling, crossword puzzles, reading, oil painting, and laughter. She painted and sculpted and told the best stories ever, just like her father. Recently, Peg donated over 1500 political cartoons to the Penn State University Library to commemorate her father and honor the children, grandchildren, nieces and nephews who have attended Penn State University. She and John traveled extensively all over the world, and instilled the love of travel in all her heirs. Peg’s companions at Spring House Estates will most remember her for her bedazzled walker, sharp outfits, always matching earrings, and most of all the never ending stories and laughter she gifted to all she met. Peg is survived by her four children: Trish Lawlor (Sherri Bassner), Megan McCartin (Tom), Colleen Hogan (Rick) and John M. Lawlor (Lisa), 9 grandchildren Casey and Kelly McCartin, Tom, Devon, Connor and Lindsay Hogan, Missy, Ryan and Jenny Lawlor, and her brother Terry Doyle (Maryellen). She was pre-deceased by her brother Jerry Doyle. Relatives and friends are invited to her Funeral Mass on Saturday, August 4, 2018 at 11 AM at St. Catherine of Siena Church, 321 Witmer Rd., Horsham, PA 19044. A Viewing will be held Friday evening from 6-8pm at the Emil J. Ciavarelli Family Funeral Homes and Crematory, 951 E. Butler Pike, Ambler and on Saturday from 10-11 AM at the Church. Interment will be in George Washington Memorial Park, Plymouth Meeting, PA.
