Peg passed away on June 26, 2019 at Freedom Village in West Brandywine, PA. Peg was a wonderful wife and beloved mother of 16 children, 42 grandchildren, 78 great-grandchildren, and 13 great-great grandchildren. Peg was married to the love of her life, Thomas James Trotter in 1940. They settled in Hatfield, PA with their family and started their business, Trotter Soft Pretzels that supplied pretzels to Catholic Schools in Philadelphia and the surrounding counties. As their family started to grow, they moved to Fort Washington, PA. Devoted Catholics, they became members of Saint Genevieve Parish.

She also lost her son, Mark, at age 36 to cancer.
Peg married William “Bill” Sites in 1985. They moved to Chestertown and ran the Lauretum Inn, a bed and breakfast. Peg and Bill continued to enjoy boating on the Chesapeake Bay. They moved to Jenner’s Pond in West Grove and then to Freedom Village in Brandywine in September 2017. Peg and Bill were married 35 years until his passing in January 2018. Peg went on to enjoy her family and friends at Freedom Village. Peg loved and was loved by her family and will be deeply missed. The gratitude of those whose lives she created and touched is immeasurable.
