My relationship with Peggy goes back to high school. We had some wild and crazy times then and in college, cutting way too many classes to play pinochle. Peggy's laugh is what I remember. It bubbled up from deep inside and took you along with it. Ever cheerful, ever generous, kind and understanding; her family and friends will miss her dearly. Such a loss. I hope her passing was peaceful.

Remembering Peggy from teaching days at Von Steuben. When I retired, she generously took.all my back issues of "Substance" magazine to supplement her library of Chicago s history for y the history fair. She was constantly looking to improve her classes.. And always with a smile. Fond memories. "The Souls of the Just Are in the Hands if God, And No Torment Shall Touch Them" Joani (Pena) Riley

Sorry for your loss. Oh how I hated history but sometimes you meet a teacher that makes it survivable. Even in college it was the only C I received. Great lady and wonderful educator.

My wife and I moved into Peg and Tom's building on Eastlake Terrace in 2015. They were the best landlords we could have ever asked for and Peg and Tom's union was one to emulate. Peg's grace, sweetness and easy temperament immediately made us feel like more than just tenants. Watching her spend time with her grandsons was endearing and it was clear to see the joy they brought her. My wife quickly became enamored with Peg's green thumb and the beautiful wildflower garden it yielded in front of the building. I can't recall how many times I witnessed a passerby on the street stop and take time to admire that stunning array of flowers. Her gift to everyone. Tom, Eric and family are firmly in our hearts.

Peg was an amazing mother-in-law. She welcomed me into the family with open arms from the beginning of my relationship with Eric. Being a fellow teacher, she always supported me and assured me that although teaching was hard, it was worth it. I loved being on the beach with her, sharing and discussing books we had read, and spending time together with the family. Peg was an incredible grandma. She was thrilled with the arrival of Jack and later Ben. She watched them twice a week since they were born. She took them to the zoo and Loyola park and any playground in the vicinity. She loved the boys so much and they loved her right back. Peg always had a great sense of spirit and adventure! She passed this on to Eric and the boys. I love and miss her so much. We all do!

Jim Abraham left a message on December 3, 2022:
I'll always remember Peg's calm warmth. She always seemed to be subtly, quietly smiling in a way that reassured those around her and that made the whole block a much more peaceful and happy place. Whether she was grading assignments in the park, working in her front garden, or sitting peacefully with Phyllis, Peg gracefully, graciously made everywhere she was warmer and brighter.

I can express what a blessing it was to have Mrs. Hall-Heineman as my home room teacher. She always have a sweet smile and a warm embrace when you walked into school. I remember always asking her for advice on all my goofy endeavors and she always found a way to give me sound advice that I cherished. Thank you Mrs. H! I know us girls drove you wild at times!

Dear Tom I do not know if you remember me .. I am Kathie Felgenhauer's sister. Peggy was my history teacher at Good Counsel and she was TOTALLY AWESOME!!! Definitely one of the best teachers that I ever had. I also very fondly recall the strength and support that you extended to me and my family during Kathie's medical crisis. Please know that I am (virtually) sending you and your family as much strength, support, and healing vibes. So very sorry for your loss.

I met Peg at Loyola’s Rome campus, and soon became part of a group called the Harvettes back home in Chicago. Peg was the quiet, steady one of the group, kind and unassuming, always listening with an open heart and mind. Her quick wit was one of her hallmarks, as was the love she shared with Tom and her family, of whom she spoke often. She was so proud of all of you. She leaves you a legacy of love. ~Liz O’C

I married into a great group of friends, of whom Peggy was outstanding. Peggy was an extremely kind, smart, quick-witted, and welcoming woman with whom it was my pleasure to share many Friendsgiving dinners, and family and friend events. It was an honor to know her. My deepest sympathy to Tom, her family, and everyone who loved her.

It’s been a pleasure knowing and interacting with Peggy over the last year. Running into her in our building was always a pleasant and heart warming exchange and a great start to many of my days. She’ll be dearly missed! Tom, Eric, and Kathryn, my sincerest condolences. My thoughts are with you all.
Dina Laskowski left a message on December 1, 2022:
My deepest sympathy to you Tom and to the family. Peg was a dear friend of over 50 years and a role model who was loved by many. She was one of the Harvettes! She always had a quiet inner strength, stamina, and perserverance. We had many an adventure traveling, partying, and just being together telling stories. She and Tom always opened their home to all and made you feel welcomed. She knew Chicago's history and shared it. She will be sadly missed. Love you Peg!
Rebecca Bridge left a message on December 1, 2022:
I came to Good Counsel as a bit of a lost soul, admitted in the middle of the school year because my previous school had been traumatic, and nobody really knew what to make of me or why I was suddenly there, but Ms. Hall-Heineman did. She made me feel welcomed and respected my intelligence and looked for my insight and made sure that we all knew how to interpret history in a way that made sense in the modern world and that would aid us in seeing the world ahead of us just as much as the world behind. She was one-of-a-kind and I hope her family knows that she was appreciated in her lifetime and will be remembered.
