My sincere condolences to you, your family and Peggy's friends.  Our discipline has truly lost an important contributor and a great person.  At least she lived to receive the J.B. McCormick Award last year, which was well deserved.

Subject: [Histonet] Peggy Wenk's passing

It is my sad duty to tell you that Peggy Wenk passed away peacefully
Saturday morning.  Her husband and companion of 37 years and her
sister (from Bend,OR) were there.

As you know Peggy had a large influence in the world of Histology.

She also put herself into her church serving over the years as
a nursery school director, Lay Eucharistic Minister and on the vestry.
She sang enthusiastically in the choir and played in the newly formed
bell choir.

Because of our love of books, we both volunteered at the local library.
We helped collect books, sort them and then helped to sell them; raising
funds for the library's use.

There will be two memorial services: one here in Michigan for all her
local family and coworkers, the second in southern California (a burial
at sea).  We are asking that no flowers be sent; instead Peggy has
specified (she and her sister planned the funeral several months ago)
three different charitable organizations in lieu of flowers.

St. Mary’s-in-the-Hills Episcopal Church (Peggy's church)

Shades of Pink Foundation (financial aid to local breast cancer patients)

Peggy A. Wenk Endowed Scholarship for Histotechnology at Oakland University
