Margaret Louise (Hunt) Woodin, "Peggy", a longtime resident of Littleton, passed peacefully on April 3rd surrounded by her loving family at the age of 90.
Peggy was born in Ayer Massachusetts on Easter Sunday, April 20, 1930. She returned to God on Holy Saturday, April 3, 2021.
Peggy was the daughter of the late Irving Winslow Hunt and Margaret Amelia (Knox) Hunt of Littleton.
Peggy graduated from Littleton High School, class of 1948 and was employed for many years as a telephone operator and clerk at New England Telephone in Ayer MA. She was a volunteer at the Town of Littleton election polling, Meals on Wheels, and a member of the Sodality and communicant at St. Anne's Church in Littleton.
Peggy was the wife of the late Charles E. Woodin. In April of 1972, Peggy married Charlie, a widower with three children (ages 11 to 16), and she unselfishly and wholeheartedly took on the role of being their mother. Peggy and Charlie enjoyed watching sports and took numerous trips to the White Mountains in New Hampshire until he passed in October of 1991. She enjoyed crafts, her dolls and collectibles.
Peggy proudly lived in her family home for 87 of her nearly 91 years of life. She grew up there, the eldest of five children with her parents, grandparents, and occasionally uncles and cousins, often having no bedroom of her own. Upon the passing of her parents, she returned to the home to live with her husband Charlie and their children. Despite medical challenges, she lived independently at home with support from her family until the time of her passing. She had a profound love of animals, especially dogs and birds. Her special companion for the last six years was a Chihuahua-Corgi mix rescue dog named Pedro whom she loved dearly.
Peggy is survived by her three children: David C. Woodin and his wife Karen of Waterford NY; Marianne (Woodin) Hunt and her husband John of Milford NH; Charles E. Woodin Jr. and his wife Laurie of Littleton MA.
She had seven grandchildren: Kathleen (Craig) Brown of Santa Maria CA, Mary (Timothy) Goodwin of Keene NH, Brian Woodin of Waterford NY, Timothy (Angela) Hunt of Londonderry NH, Gregg Hunt of Wilton NH, Danielle (Keith) Sheffer of Ayer MA, and Stephen Woodin (Lucia Franceschi) of Groton MA.
Peggy had ten great-grandchildren: Liam Brown, Sophie Goodwin, Penelope Goodwin, Madison Hunt, Hailey Hunt, Aidan Veverka, Connor Hunt, Ella Hunt, Nora Sheffer, and Evelyn Sheffer.
Peggy was fortunate to have the love and companionship of her brothers and their spouses who lived locally and visited often. She is predeceased by her brother John (Jack) Hunt Sr. and is survived by her brother Edward Hunt and his wife Helen of Littleton MA, brother James Hunt and his wife Judy of Littleton MA, brother Thomas Hunt and his wife Mary Anne O'Brien of Lowell MA, and sister-in-law Phyllis Hunt of Littleton MA. Peggy is also survived by many loving nieces and nephews.
Family and friends will gather to honor and remember Peggy for a period of visitation on Sunday April 11, 2021 from 1:00 pm until 3:00 pm at Badger's Funeral Home in Littleton MA.
Her funeral mass will be celebrated at Blessed Trinity Parish - St. Anne's Church, 75 King Street, Littleton on Monday April 12 at 10:00 am. Due to Covid-19 restrictions, church attendance will be by invitation for immediate family only. Interment will follow in Westlawn Cemetery, Littleton.
The family would like to recognize and thank the nurses, doctors, and staff at Nashoba Valley Medical Center in Ayer for their exceptional medical and compassionate care during her last few days. Her children would also like to thank those people who made it possible for her to stay in the home she loved until her passing by providing companionship, meals, and other services.
