Obituary: Margaret “Peg” A. Woods

Margaret “Peg” A. Woods, 72, of Paw Paw, gracefully departed this world surrounded by the love of her family on Monday, May 6, 2024, at Rose Arbor, Kalamazoo. Born on Sept. 30, 1951, in Akron, Ohio, Peg was the cherished daughter of Laverne “Ed” Buess and Jeanette (Bunell) Buess. She brought joy and warmth to her family from the very beginning, her gentle spirit leaving an indelible mark on all who knew her.
Peg grew up in Talmadge, OH, attending and graduating from Talmadge High School before pursuing higher education at Kalamazoo College. Her thirst for knowledge led her abroad during her early college years, where she fondly embraced the experience of living in France as an Au Pair.
During her career, Peg dedicated over 35 years of service to the Paw Paw Post Office, demonstrating unwavering commitment and diligence in her work.
Peg’s heart overflowed with love for her family, and her happiest moments were spent in their company. An avid reader, she found solace and joy within the pages of her favorite books. Her love for words extended to crossword puzzles, where she showcased her sharp mind and wit. Nature beckoned her for peaceful walks, where she found tranquility amidst the beauty of the outdoors.
In the tapestry of her life, Peg wove countless precious memories with her beloved husband, Robert “Bob” Edward Woods, and their cherished sons, Robert (Nicole) Woods and Michael Woods. Her adoration knew no bounds for her grandchildren, Lucas, and Eden Woods, who brought endless joy to her heart.
Peg’s memory will forever be treasured by her brother, Thomas (Pamela) Buess, and sister, Sue Yoder. She was predeceased by her parents, Ed and Jeanette Buess, and her brothers-in-law, Jess Yoder and Kenneth Woods.
In honoring Peg’s life, family and friends are invited to a memorial gathering on Saturday, May 25, from 1 to 4 p.m. at Adams Funeral Home, 502 W. Michigan Avenue, Paw Paw.
Peg’s legacy of love, kindness, and devotion will live on in the hearts of all who were blessed to know her. May she rest in eternal peace, cradled in the loving embrace of her heavenly family.
