Peggy June Bradley, age 70, died on Wednesday, July 24, 2019 at St. John Hospital in Grosse Pointe, MI. She was born in Royal Oak, MI to Junior and Lucy (Gascho) Garlinghouse and the oldest daughter of five children.
After graduating from high school Peggy married her loving husband of 50 years, Kenneth Bradley. She went on to work at Excello. Then after moving to Dryden, MI she began working part-time at the post office. To eventually land a secretarial job at Dryden High School, where she finished out her career until retirement. For all those that knew her she was a woman of unfaultering faith, she lived every day with grace and had a smile that could light up a room. Her love, kindness, friendship and undeniable faith continues to inspire all those that she has left behind.
Peggy spent every day counting her blessings while enjoying life with Kenneth. She enjoyed taking her mother to church and bible study, getting together with her “circle of friends”, conversations and impromptu get togethers, and trips with her sisters. Her most enjoyable past time was being with Kenneth and enjoying their family.
A loving mother and grandmother, she left behind three children, Brian Bradley, Andy Bradley, and Darlene Gannon. A son-in-law, Brian Gannon and six beautiful grandchildren; Luke, Parker, Avery, Addison, Rylee, and Kamri-Lynn. She was a loving sister to John (Cathy) Garlinghouse, Lucy (Mark) Cromas, Gary Garlinghouse, Amber (Richard) Garlinghouse. A sister-in-law to Virginia McKnown and an aunt to many nieces and nephews.
Even as Peggy fought and eventually lost her battle to pancreatic cancer it is certain that every day she lived gratefully. She continues to live on in the memories we all hold so dear. Peggy believed in living every day with love and kindness.
