Margaret “Peggy” Mockel, 95, of Piedmont, CA, passed away peacefully on October 21, 2023, surrounded by loved ones. Born in New York on October 9, 1928, to James and Anna Kondrup, she was preceded in death by her husband Donald, brothers John Kondrup, James Kondrup, Joseph Kondrup, sisters Mary (Mae) Kondrup, and Anna Kondrup. She is survived by her half-sister Joan Tittel Mills, and sisters-in-law Barbara Tittel and Marlene Tarsetti Kondrup.
Peggy grew up in Manhattan in “Hell’s Kitchen” during the depression, attended Erasmus Hall High School and after graduation was a live-in nanny for a doctor’s family. In 1949, her Aunt Margie convinced Peggy to move to California, and she settled in Oakland where she met Don one day when he delivered laundry to her house. They married in 1951 and were wonderful loving parents to their 6 children: Dennis (daughter-in-law Mary), Ken (daughter-in-law Diane), Ron, Phyllis (son-in-law Dave - deceased), Christine (son-in-law Ridge), Maureen (son-in-law Neil). Peggy treasured time spent with her 8 grandchildren (Jason (deceased), Jamie, Jeanie, Kim, Sam, Jack, Sarah, and Kate), and was very proud of her 7 great-grandchildren. Peggy was also a loving aunt to many nieces and nephews spanning coast-to-coast. We all mourn the passing our beloved mother and family matriarch who was always there to help someone in need.
Her love of learning aligned perfectly with her 25 yr. career at Piedmont Adult School. “Positive Peggy” made friends easily, was non-judgmental, and had a genuine interest in people she met. She offered unconditional love to all, was quick-witted, and often said she never had a bad day in her life.
A mass will be on Nov 3rd, at 10:30 am, at Corpus Christi Church, at 322 St. James Dr., Piedmont, CA.
In lieu of flowers, the family suggests donations be made to St. Vincent de Paul – a charity that helped Peggy’s family during difficult times growing up.
