Peggy was born on November 15, 1946, to Edward & Betty (Franckowiak) Merkey in Manistee, MI. She graduated from Manistee High School in 1964 and continued her education by attending Davenport Business School and earning a degree in business. On August 31, 1968, Peggy married the love of her life, Kevin Block. Peggy worked for the City of St. Joseph for 24 years. She held the position of City Clerk for her final 15 years, until her retirement. Peggy was very active in the city, especially during election times. She enjoyed watching home renovation shows where she could take those ideas and incorporate them into her home. She loved making jewelry, watching golf and tennis, visiting local garage sales, and most of all, playing penny slots at the casino. Peggy’s favorite holiday was Christmas, she loved it so much she would start buying decorations during summer so she was prepared as soon as the Christmas season came around. She was also a proud member of Trinity Lutheran Church. However, what Peggy loved most was her grandchildren; spending time with and spoiling them gave her the most joy.

Peggy is survived by her loving husband of 52 years, Kevin; children, Kevin (Julie) Block of St. Joseph, and Brian (Kyla) Block of Fenton, MI; grandchildren, Jordan, Jenna and Leah Block; sister, Patricia Merkey; and several cousins.

Peggy was preceded in death by her parents, Edward and Betty.

Kevin and family, I can’t tell you how sad I was to hear of Peggy’s passing. I so enjoyed the many years I was able to work with her and keeping in contact with her after retirement. I so wish I was at home to be able to express my condolences in person. Sending my prayers and thoughts to you at this time of sorrow for you and your family.
