BESANT, Margaret E. (Calder)

BESANT - Margaret E. (nee Calder)
July 23, 2017 of East Aurora, NY, beloved wife of Martin J. Besant; cherished mother of Rebecca (Kyle McNally) Besant and Evelyn (Gregg Jones) Besant; dearest grandmother of Lucas and Greta McNally and Felix Jones; dear sister of John (Joan) Calder and Jean (late Roland) Selman. Peggy was the heart of her family, embracing whatever activity became their current fad; ski racing, sailing, foreign travel to places most reasonable people would avoid, exotic cooking (20 years of food magazines carefully stored, indexed and used). Her career in education touched thousands of lives in East Aurora. The family will receive friends on Thursday, July 27 from 3 until 8 at the WOOD FUNERAL HOME, 784 Main Street, East Aurora, NY where funeral services will be held on Friday, July 28 at 11AM. In lieu of flowers, a donation to Rwandan Orphans Project, 302 Washington St., San Diego, CA 92103, or Roswell Park Cancer Institute, is greatly appreciated. Online condolences may be shared at
