July 21, 1924 - March 11, 2015
Dodgeville - Margaret "Peg" Rock, age 90, of Dodgeville, died on Wednesday, March 11, 2015. She was born in Dodgeville on July 21, 1924 to Carl and Mary (Thies) Rock. She graduated from Dodgeville High School in 1941 and set her sights on a nursing degree from St. Mary's Nursing School in Madison. In 1946, she started her career as a Registered Nurse and retired from the nursing profession in 1988. Nursing proved to be the perfect career choice as she cared for many both professionally and personally throughout her life. Peg was an avid bowler, a Red Cross volunteer and was always available to her friends and family and others in their time of need. She loved to crochet and many of her nieces and nephews were often the recipients of the throws and blankets she made. She rarely missed a Brewers' game, knew that stats and many times enjoyed a hot dog or two during the games to complete the experience. Above all, her quick wit and great sense of humor brightened up the day of those around her. She was preceded in death by her parents, her brothers, Tony, Jack, and Bob, her sisters, JoAnn Evans and Mary Misky, her niece, Jackie Palzkill, brothers-in-law, Ralph Evans, Ray Misky, her sisters-in-law, Romell, Kathryn, and Pat Rock. Peg is survived by 14 nieces and nephews and several great nieces and nephews. A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at 11:00 a.m. on Friday, March 13, 2015 at ST. JOSEPH'S CATHOLIC CHURCH in Dodgeville. Monsignor Daniel Ganshert will officiate. Burial will be held in St. Joseph's Cemetery. Friends may call from 10:00 a.m. until time of Mass at the church. We wish to express our appreciation and gratitude for the wonderful care Peg received by the Hospice staff, Upland Hills Nursing & Rehab Center, Bloomfield Manor and friends who helped out over the last couple of years.
