Margaret (Peg) Cygan, 94, of Allentown formerly of Quakertown died October 28, 2020 in the Devon House in Allentown. She was the beloved wife of Thaddeus (Ted) T. Cygan and they would have celebrated their 71st anniversary in November. She was born on July 19, 1926 in Quakertown to Frank and Marie (Alscher) Feiler. She grew up in Quakertown with her twin sister Elizabeth and younger sister Marie. Upon graduation from Quakertown High School, she attended Jefferson Nursing School as a member of the Army Cadet Nursing Corps and was employed by Jefferson Hospital in Philadelphia as a registered nurse.

Over their 70 years together, Ted and Peg’s family grew to include 25 grandchildren and 16 Great Grandchildren and many nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by two daughters Susan O’Donnell (Thomas) and Amelia Spier (Thomas) and her sister Marie Popp (William). A busy wife and mother as her family was growing, she found time later in her life to enjoy sewing and making quilts which she gave as gifts to her family and friends.
