Margaret M. Arundel, 95, passed away on Oct. 23. She was the wife of the late Philip J. Arundel. Born in Providence she was a daughter of the late Daniel and Helen (Davis) Harvey.
Margaret (though she was always called Peg or Peggy by her family and friends) was an avid sports fan – a lifelong supporter of the Red Sox, Patriots, Celtics and Bruins – and also thoroughly enjoyed watching tennis and golf. In her earlier years, Peg loved to travel with her family members and friends, and later in life became a keen and knowledgeable birdwatcher. She also enjoyed spending her leisure time catching up on the newspaper daily, baking, or couponing. But most of all, she delighted in spending time with her loved ones, attending events, ceremonies, birthdays, graduations, and celebrating holidays, especially when she was able to end the day schooling them in a game of Hi Lo Jack or Canasta. Her quick wit never failed, and she will be deeply missed by all who knew and loved her.
She is survived by three sons, James D. Arundel (Geraldine), David J. Arundel (Angela) and Christopher M. Arundel (Doris); five grandchildren, and three great grandchildren. She was the sister of the late Jean Justice and Janet Roberts.
