My condolences in the loss of your loved one. I would like to share some encouraging thoughts from the Bible. The pain of grief we feel when our loved ones die can sometimes be unbearable. The comforting words from our heavenly father Jehovah found at Isaiah 25:8; He (God) will swallow up death forever. And the Sovereign Lord Jehovah will wipe the tears from all faces, and Psalm 34:18; Jehovah is close to the brokenhearted; He saves those who are crushed in spirit, will help you to cope with the grief and sadness now and in the days ahead.

Margaret Allison Ahlman died on Thursday, August 17, 2017, at her home. Peg was born in Cleveland, Ohio on January 9, 1923 and grew up in Erie, Pennsylvania. She was preceded in death by her birth parents, Robert C. and Mary Martin Allison and brother Bob (Ethel) and by the Pope family who raised her, (mother) Frieda Pope, (sisters) Helen Pope Schade (Mervyn), Olive Pope Brown (Ken), (brother) Doug (Jane) Pope and beloved aunts Gertrude Allison Alexander (Rob Roy) and Ruth Allison. Peg’s husband, Jack, died in1996 in Arizona.

Following graduation from Strong Vincent High School, she attended Huron Road School of Nursing in Cleveland. Her roommate, Marj Ahlman, invited Peg to the family farm for a weekend where she met Marj’s brother, Jack, who became the love of her life. With the beginning of WWII Jack joined the Army Air Corp as a radio man and shortly before Peg’s graduation, they were married. Following graduation, they set up housekeeping in Alexandria, Virginia. At the conclusion of the war they moved with their young baby to Norwich, Vermont for one long and very cold winter before returning to Jack’s hometown, Mentor, Ohio.

Peg’s career as a registered nurse included work in a doctor’s office, hospitals and Mentor High School. She was active in the Mentor Women’s Club, Girl Scouts, PTA, Mentor Methodist Church and DAR. In 1979, Jack and Peg moved to Sun City, Arizona where they enjoyed an active retirement in the Hiking Club, Biking Club, Little Theater, Faith Presbyterian Church, and Peg modeled for a local women’s clothing store. Peg remained in Arizona for five years following Jack’s death and moved to Savannah in 2001 where she joined Wesley Monumental United Methodist Church, worked with its bulletin brigade and became a volunteer at Candler Hospital before moving to Savannah Commons.

She is survived by daughters Karen Ahlman Kilhefner (Dale) of Savannah and Jane Ahlman LaFaber (Denny) of Bluffton, SC, grandchildren Rebecca Kilhefner-White (Justin) of Bethesda, MD, Adam LaFaber (Tonya) of Akron, OH and Matthew LaFaber (Kelly) of Columbus, OH, great grandchildren, Jackson LaFaber, Niklas White, Victoria De Temple, Mackenzie Morrow, Marissa Morrow and many nieces and nephews.

The family wishes to express grateful appreciation to The Springs staff of Savannah Commons, Dreamers Howell and Hospice Savannah for their loving attention and care.
