She is survived by a son, James H. Makraus of Bridgeport and his stepchildren, Dale Johnston and Amanda Squires. Peggy also had two daughters, Elizabeth Makraus, (who was her primary caregiver) and Patricia Nucifora and her husband Robert, all of Stratford.

She was predeceased by her husband of 51 years, James Makraus, and her sister, Helen Rosenfeld of South Carolina.
