RAYMOND — Peggy Ann Bisco, 56, of Raymond, passed away on Thursday, April 2, 2015, at the Gosnell Memorial Hospice House in Scarborough.

She was born in Portland, on Sept. 24, 1958, the daughter of Roland and Mary Lane Blake. She graduated from Windham High School in 1976.

Peggy was employed with Fairchild Semiconductor from 1983 to 1987 and again from 2002 to 2003. Peggy worked for the U.S. Postal Service becoming postmaster after 12 years as a part-time postmaster relief. Peggy’s passion was helping her many customers who became her friends over the past 23 years, and riding motorcycles.

Peggy spent the last 14 years creating a craft called Squeezums, where you squeeze the character cheeks and there is a “Kiss” inside. She sold many at church and community fairs. She enjoyed watching kids pick out one of over 100 different types she created. She also donated to many nonprofit organizations.

In 2001, Peggy traveled to Tokyo, Japan, to watch her daughter, Christie, participate in the Archery World Cup Finals Championships. She was thrilled to see Christie win third place in the individual and a gold medal in the mixed team event. In 2013, Christie and Peggy, and Michele Roberts took a cruise to the Bahamas because Peggy wanted to add to her “bucket list.”

In 2014, Peggy participated in the National Geographic documentary about the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks. The Final Hours featured Peggy as she entered the airport that morning sending Christie off to Beijing, China, for the Archery World Championships. They were the last ones to see the terrorist enter the airport.

She is survived by her daughter, Christie E. Colin of York, Pa.; two grandsons; her father of Windham; three brothers, Terry Blake and Steven Blake of Limington, and Scott Blake of Raymond.

Visitation was held on Wednesday, April 8, at the Dennett, Craig & Pate Funeral Home, 13 Portland Road, Buxton (Bar Mills). A memorial service followed at the funeral home. Rev. Malcom Hall of the Bar Mills Community Church officiated.
