Margaret “Peggy” Vrooman was born on December 9, 1904, in Ransomville, to Henry and Catherine Vrooman. They moved to Lewiston when she was still young.  She was married to Ralph Deering and worked as chief operator of the New York Telephone Company’s offices in Lewiston and as switchboard operator for Beir Brothers Department Store. She died on June 14, 1954.

Recently a photo of Peggy surfaced in a book donation at the Lewiston Public Library. It turns out that Peggy was an aunt of one of our patrons.
