Margaret Cristiano ("Peggy") passed away on June 14, 2016, at age 73. She had been a member of the Roosevelt Island community for 20 years, and truly embraced Roosevelt Island as her home. She was giving, kind, and, always the first to offer help when needed. She was a good neighbor, CCD (Continuing Catholic Development) teacher, and part of the St. Frances Xavier Cabrini Parish Council.
She was loving wife to the late Joseph Cristiano, also an Island resident, beloved mother of Robert and James, cherished grandmother of Robert Douglas, Joseph, Theodore, and another proud grandchild on the way, beloved sister of Larry, and was predeceased by her dear brother Alan. She also had a wonderful relationship with her in-laws. Peggy was someone who touched the lives of countless people as a nurse, friend, and advisor. She will be greatly missed.
A memorial service, to be held on the Island, is being planned. Details will be announced at a later date.
