Margaret Herron Of Havertown

Posted: June 12, 1996

Margaret Mary J. Herron, 77, of Havertown, a shareholder relations representative for Philadelphia Suburban Corp., died Friday of pneumonia at Mercy Haverford Hospital.

For the last seven years, Mrs. Herron sold company stock directly to the public from corporate headquarters in Bryn Mawr, and also served as a service representative to stockholders. She previously was secretary to corporate secretary Ray Mysek.

``Peggy was a tireless, dedicated worker who always went the extra mile,'' Mysek said. ``Everyone who comes in to buy stock asks for Peggy. They considered her a friend.''

Miss Herron began her career with Worden & Risberg Inc., a management consulting firm in Philadelphia, which was acquired by Philadelphia Suburban in 1981.

A graduate of John W. Hallahan Catholic High School for Girls in Philadelphia, she moved to Havertown more than 35 years ago.

She was a member of Annunciation of the Blessed Virgin Mary Roman Catholic Church in the Brookline section.

Miss Herron was a former president of St. Raphaela Mary Retreat House in Haverford and had been active with the Legion of Mary.

She is survived by a sister, Rose E. Sweigard.

Friends and relatives may call from 7 to 9 p.m. today and after 8:30 a.m. tomorrow at Stretch Funeral Service, 236 E. Eagle Rd., Havertown.

A Funeral Mass will be offered at 10 a.m. tomorrow at Annunciation Church, 401 Brookline Blvd., Havertown. Burial will follow in St. Denis Cemetery, Eagle Road and St. Denis Lane, Havertown.

The family suggests contributions to St. Raphaela Mary Retreat House, 616 Coopertown Rd., Haverford, Pa. 19041.
