Obituary

Peggy Ann O’Connor of Arlington, Texas passed away on January 28, 2022 at the age of 62.

Peggy was born on February 5, 1959 in Berwyn, Illinois to Richard and Patricia O’Connor. She moved to Texas with her family when she was a teenager. She was preceded in death by her grandparents James and Sophie Nolan and Walter and Lillian O’Connor and her father Richard O’Connor. She is survived by her mother Patricia O’Connor and siblings Colleen Rebish, Shawn O’Connor, Cara (Reid) Whitesel and Mike (Jennifer) O’Connor. She is also survived by nieces and nephews Tricia Rebish, Christa (Don) Watkins, Collin (Tierney) Whitesel, Andrew (Britany) Whitesel, Ashley O’Connor, Katie (Jeff) LeRoy, Riley O’Connor, Brody O’Connor and Logan O’Connor and great nieces and nephews Halie Watkins, Lillian Watkins, Steven Watkins, Stormie Rebish, Raven Rebish, Michael Hall, Madelynn Hall, McKenzie LeRoy, Kynleigh Whitesel, Baylor Whitesel and Merritt Whitesel. She is also survived by a multitude of other family and friends.

 

Peggy graduated from J. J. Pearce High School in Richardson, Texas in 1977. She married Clinton Wills in 1977 and although not still married, he was an important part of her life. She retired from Aetna after over 30 years of service and was currently working for MultiPlan in Arlington, Texas. She loved her family and was the biggest cheerleader relating to everything her nieces and nephews did. Peggy loved animals, gardening and cooking.

Peggy was very active in the animal rescue community and worked tirelessly with a few local animal rescue groups doing Trap, Neuter & Release for feral cats. She also worked very hard fostering cats and kittens and attending adoption events to find them homes. Animal rescue was her biggest passion and she worked closely with Buddies Place Cat Rescue, Matilda’s Garden and other animal rescue groups and animal shelters. She met so many close friends as part of that journey.

Thank you to everyone that provided support to Peggy during her 15 month battle with cancer, whether helping with her medical care, helping with her cats, providing financial support or sending flowers, treats, cheer packages and prayers. She was tiny but mighty and put up a courageous fight. Special thanks to niece Tricia Rebish (her “girlie”) who was her primary caregiver during her illness. She loved and appreciated every one of you.

"I highly recommend this funeral home and crematorium; when I had to make and pay for my brother’s arrangements across state lines, Evelyn Montonya, in particular, demonstrated both compassion and professionalism and made a very sad and difficult situation much easier. Many thanks."

"The unexpected passing of my husband was a very difficult and trying time for my boys and I. I had the good fortune of having Abel walk us thru this process. Working with him was such a weight off my shoulders. He was professional, so polite and helpful. The service was beautiful – never did I feel rushed or like just another customer. They gave me the time I needed and I appreciate that so much! Also Mr. Brooks took special care of my husband as he is a fellow mason. I would highly recommend working with Abel and North Dallas Funeral Home."

"Everyone at North Dallas Funeral Home was very professional, kind, and caring, in all steps of the process from the first phone call to the service held at their location. They help to make the process as easy and comforting in my opinion as to be expected, I would recommend their service to anyone. Thank You to everyone who helped me and my family. Sincerely,"

"As soon as the call was made to Mr. Wayne Baxter all of my brothers final needs were taken care of. They walked me through what to expect the timeline and even dealt with the cemetery and the grave diggers. I was a hot mess due to my brothers sudden and unexpected passing. The experience was seamless and made it easy for my brother’s friends and family to say their last goodbyes. They even had the size to accommodate such a large group that showed up . The package deals that they offered were cost-effective and didn’t break my bank account. They included extras and accommodations that other funeral homes charged extra for. All the staff was amazing including Mr. Don Dodd . I can not thank them enough for all their help."

Dear John,

It was such a nice pleasure to meet you, and what you had planned for my father just took my breath away. It was so special to hear you tell us how he would just come over to talk with you. I think it brought him much comfort. Tha you for putting that Air Force article of him on your website. I am going to have a replica made of the painting of his plane to give you.

Thank you again for all you have done to honor our dad.

Love, The Gillilands
