Eagle 1HUDSON FALLS -Margaret E. Eagle (“Peg”), 88, passed away peacefully on July 31,2015 at the Fort Hudson Nursing Home in Hudson Falls.

Born on May 13, 1927 to Edward and Aurilla (Havens) McGinnis in their home on 20 Baker Street in Hudson Falls, Peg was the oldest of ten children. Her whole life Peg worked and  took care of others.  Peg had a lot of responsibility helping her mother care for her siblings as a child. She also was a neighborhood babysitter while in grade school and while in high school she worked as a soda jerk at Baker’s Drug store in Hudson Falls. She graduated from Hudson Falls High School where she was the Prom queen who dated a football player, Charles “Chuck” Eagle. Like so many during World War II, Chuck went into service right out of high school  and Peg waited for him to return from the Pacific to get married in 1947 in her parent’s back yard. Their special day was celebrated in classic Irish style with a keg of beer, a bouquet of daisies and their closest friends and family.

Peg started working right out of high school as a mailroom clerk for Imperial Wallpaper Company in Glens Falls and was promoted many times until she retired as a company buyer from what became known as Ciba-Geigy. Although she worked outside the home her whole life, her main priority was always her three children, Charles (Tod), David, and Dianne. Peg was a communicant at St. Mary’s Church in Hudson Falls and volunteered for the Glens Falls Hospital Guild for many years. She and Chuck were fortunate to have many close friends they enjoyed being with, whether it was playing golf at the Tee Bird Country Club, playing cards in bridge club, dancing at the Cosmopolitan Club, or going on Caribbean cruises. Peg especially cherished her time at the family cottage on Dunham’s Bay on Lake George in the summer where she enjoyed great memories with her children and grandchildren. Peg’s tireless work ethic, dedication to family and enjoyment of the simple things in life were a real inspiration to her children. She will be dearly missed and always a part of our lives. We love you Meme.

Besides her husband, Peg was predeceased by her infant sister, Helen Clare, and brothers Edward, Robert,Richard, and John McGinnis.

Survivors include her children, Charles Tod Eagle and his wife Maura of Rochester, David A. Eagle and his wife Leslie of Lake George and Dianne Leonelli and her husband Chuck of Lake George. She also leaves behind her beloved grandchildren, Alyson and Lauren Eagle; Brook (Victoria) and Jessica Eagle; and Megen and Scott Krohn and Alex and Colin Leonelli and three precious great grandchildren, Patrick, Max and Kaiana.
