Peg de Werff nee Potter, of Glen Ellyn, Mother of Brian de Werff and David de Werff. Grandmother of Ella de Werff and Dawson de Werff. Daughter of Stan and Pat Potter. Sister of Pam Manson, Theresa Boynton, Colleen Liesman, and David Potter. Fun-loving aunt of many nieces and nephews.
Peg brought joy to everyone she met. Whether she was at work as an operating room nurse or off the clock with friends and family she would greet everyone with a warm hello, a friendly smile, and occasionally a dance or high kick. She was the one who could make even the most mundane events entertaining.
Peg will always be remembered for her fun, competitive spirit. She loved to cheer on her sons and grandchildren at sporting events and play cards and games against her equally competitive family (resulting in one family fantasy football league title). Her family meant the world to her and she would've done anything to make them feel special.
