Marguerite Louise “Peggy” Charpiot Sullivan, 89, passed away Saturday, Sept. 7, 2019, at home surrounded by loved ones. Peggy was born Feb. 21, 1930, in Manhattan, New York, to parents who immigrated from France and was very proud of her French heritage.

She married the love of her life, Jim, in 1951, and they eventually left the city to raise their family in the suburbs of New Jersey before settling in Virginia Beach in 1969. Peggy would go on to work as a medical assistant in urology for Dr. Donald Imbur for 23 years before retiring. She enjoyed the beach, traveling, line dancing, playing rummy cube with her dear friends Anita and Barbara, watching tennis, a good book, a nice glass of wine and spending as much time as she could with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

Peggy was preceded in death by her mother, Marguerite “Margo” Mazouat; stepfather, Jean “John” Mazouat; husband of 33 years, Philip “Jim” James Sullivan; and son-in-law, James “Jim” Jones.

She is survived by her son, Kenneth Sullivan (Caryn); daughter, Jacqueline Susan Jones; grandchildren, Bryan Sullivan, Michael Jones (Ashley), Gina Jones and Jonathan Sullivan (Alethea), who are expecting their first child this fall; and great-grandchildren, James and Jack Jones.

A memorial service will be held at 11 a.m., Friday, Sept. 13, at H.D. Oliver Funeral Apts., Laskin Road Chapel, 2002 Laskin Road, Virginia Beach. The service will be immediately followed by a celebration of life at Aldo’s Ristorante, 1860 Laskin Road, Virginia Beach.
