WESTON, RUTH MARGARET “PEGGY,” died in Westfield, Mass., on November 6, her 69th birthday. Born in Greenfield, Mass., on Nov. 6, 1944, she was the daughter of William and Rosalind (Higgins) Weston. Peggy graduated from Northfield High School in 1962 and attended the University of Vermont. She was a business manager at Yale-New Haven Medical Center and at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst. An avid sports fan, especially of the Boston Red Sox, she rejoiced in their recent World Series victory. In the last years of her life, Peggy confounded her family and speech therapists with her quick wit, enormous intelligence and fierce determination to speak again following a devastating stroke. She leaves her son Anthony DeNoto and wife, Jenny Cairns, and their children, of Oriskany Falls, N.Y., and her son Jason DeNoto, of Golden, Colo. She also leaves her brother, Kenneth Weston, and wife Vivian, of Bristol, and three sisters: Constance LaSalle, of Austin, Tex.; Maryanne Abad, of Gloversville, N.Y.; and Jeanne Cook and husband Alan, of Northfield. She leaves 14 nieces and nephews, and numerous grandnieces and grandnephews. Her parents predeceased her, as did her much-loved brothers-in-law Robert LaSalle and Antonio Abad.
