Margaret A. “Peggy” Lubbert, age 94, of Middlesex Twp., Valencia, passed away on Thursday morning, June 25, 2020 at St. John Specialty Care Center in Mars.
Born in Pittsburgh, PA on May 12, 1926, she was the daughter of the late James and Nellie Bly Slevin.
Margaret was an avid Pirates fan and even kept score along with the game while watching at home as her father had taught her. Margaret loved to sing. When she was in her 20s she sang and traveled with an all-female singing group and sang throughout her life, filling the house with music. She finished her singing career in the choir at the Glade Run Presbyterian Church of which she was a member.
Margaret worked as a secretary for many years, retiring as a Legal Secretary for the United Steelworkers in Pittsburgh. Despite her retirement, she continued to offer her secretarial support to family and the organizations she was involved with, including the South Butler Women’s Club, and typing papers for her grandchildren. She often left notes around the house written in shorthand to the puzzlement of those that tried to decipher them.
Affectionately known as Grandma Lubbert to many, Margaret enjoyed driving her grandchildren and their friends to the movies, sporting and school events, treating them all as her family.
Surviving are her sons, William Lubbert (Betty) and James Lubbert (Beverly), both of Valencia, Howard Lubbert (Carol) of Parker and Paul Lubbert (Janet) of Mars, her grandchildren, Glen Lubbert, Gwendolyn Tate (Scott) and Andrew Lubbert (Emily) and her great grandchildren, Amalie Tate and Aubrey Lubbert and Brenna Lubbert.
She was preceded in death by the love of her life, her husband, William G. Lubbert, and her brothers, Henry “Hank” Slevin and Richard “Dick” Slevin and her sisters, Frances Campbell and Julia Galbraith.
