Margaret “Peggy” Tyrrell (née Tucker) succumbed to complications of heart and pulmonary disease on July 28, 2021 at Hope Hospice House in Cape Coral, Florida. She was 75.

Peggy was born on March 20, 1946 in Takoma Park, Maryland to her parents, Walter and Irene Tucker. She married Harry Edwin Harshberger in 1965, and was widowed in 1968. She went on to marry James Edmund Joseph Tyrrell in 1970 and they had one daughter, Amy, in 1973. The family moved to several locations for James’ career before settling in the Fort Myers, Florida area. Peggy worked for Lee Health for 23 years, having retired due to exacerbation of her illness in June 2021.

Peggy enjoyed spending time with her daughter and grandsons over the years, and had a passion for music and literature, which she passed down to her descendants. Her favorite book was “To Kill a Mockingbird” by Harper Lee, and although she loved many different musical artists, Elvis Presley held a very special place in her heart.

Peggy is survived by her daughter, Amy DePiro (née Tyrrell) of North Fort Myers, Florida; two grandsons, Thomas DePiro and Michael DePiro, both of North Fort Myers, Florida; one sister, Elizabeth “Libby” Lockard of Lehigh Acres, Florida; many nieces, nephews, and cousins. She is preceded in death by her parents, Walter Tucker and Irene Tucker (née Nestor); her first husband, Harry Harshberger; her second husband, James Tyrrell; and her brother, Lester Tucker.

Peggy’s family will hold a private celebration of her life as well as private disbursement of her ashes at a later date.

In lieu of flowers, Peggy’s family requests donations to Hope Hospice of Lee County, Florida in her memory
