July 17, 1949-Nov. 28, 2017
Peggy Case Blanco July 17, 1949 - November 28, 2017 Peggy received her wings to fly cancer-free while surrounded by love in her Pleasanton home. Peggy was born in a small town in Southern California and lived in the Bay Area since age one. For the last 47 years she lived in Pleasanton, where she raised her two daughters. Peggy was very active in PTA, Girl Scouts, and volunteering at her daughters’ schools: Walnut Grove, Harvest Park, Amador, and Hearst Elementary. Peggy also volunteered for Special Olympics and Open Heart Kitchen. It was Peggy‘s love for her family, friends, and all children—both young and young-at-heart—that made people want to be in her presence. Her kind, warm, loving, and often silly spirit was brilliant. She made everyone feel loved and cared for, which is why most called her Mom, Mama Peg, and later in life, Nana. Peggy loved being a Nana; it was her favorite season in life. She loved all three of her grandchildren deeply, and they loved her to the back of the moon. Peggy also loved going to the movies with her longtime friend, Carol. She loved a good love story and all things purple. Peggy is preceded by her husband, Fernando Blanco, and survived by her daughters, Cheryl Case and Sheri Case McNutt (Scott), and her grandchildren Tyler, Rachael, and Zachary.
