Marianne Peggie

Marianne was born and raised in a Polish Catholic home near Detroit City Airport with her parents and maternal Grandfather.   She lives in Troy and is a huge fan of the Holy Spirit!

She has been a Parishioner at Sweetest Heart of Mary church since 2002 where greatly enjoys worshiping and volunteering with an amazing group of parishioners and outreach groups.

Her family history at Sweetest Heart of Mary began in January 1916 with the wedding of her maternal grandparents.   Marianne is named after that grandmother.  She is sure they had no idea how the church they were married in still influences our family generations later.  There are many families at Sweetest Heart of Mary with similar histories – many ancestors built the church as well.
