Margaret Perhacs

June 13, 1924 ~ June 06, 2020

Margaret was born in Pittsburgh, PA

She is survived by her five children and their spouses, five grandchildren and two great grandchildren. She was predeceased by her beloved daughter in law Susan.

At age three she began piano lessons and became an accomplished classical pianist graduating from Carnegie Mellon University. During World War II Margaret was a Russian language decoder for Army Military Intelligence. She became a teacher of all sorts, and combined with her music these activities created the most joy in her life. She was a church musician serving several Lutheran churches. She enjoyed being wet whether swimming in the ocean or a pool and teaching others to do the same, from infants to adults.

In her later years her severely diminished eyesight left her unable to read music so like all Great Depression children, she improvised. Thus, “Musical Memories by Mary Margaret” was born. She performed in nursing homes, assisted living facilities and rehabilitation centers receiving as much joy as she was providing.

Free of all earthly restraints we are certain she is tinkling the ivories and entertaining may heavenly companions.

At the request of the family, there will be no services.  Her remains will be scattering in Barbados, Eastern Tennessee and Vero Beach.

Danica and Linka and other family members, I’m so sorry for your loss. I had some delightful phone conversations with your mom just a few months ago. She told me a lot about the name Danica (my daughter’s name also) and about her own background. I’m so glad we at the Volunteer Ambulance were able to help her get to her appointments. This is a very hard time to lose someone, and I just wanted you to know I’m thinking of you.

Dear Danita, Linka and those who she loved and we never met,
Joshua and I are so sorry to learn of “Miss Margaret’s” passing. We first met her at Disney’s Vero Beach resort at her Bubbles and Blink classes and what began as a business relationship- Josh being a difficult pupil requiring a great deal of tuition – soon became an enduring friendship. We looked forward to our annual visits. She taught us about native plants and Florida wildlife. We spent hours by the Indian River watching birds or browsing the book store and laughed. Yes we laughed a lot and when home we continued our correspondence by letter and phone calls. We will always remember that smile and her effusive voice, and most of all her generosity of spirit that I know has passed on to her lovely children. We send you our deepest sympathy at her loss especially at this difficult time as the world is locked down and we are all measuring ourselves today by her standard. God Bless you and God go with you . May our dear Margaret rest in peace and rise in glory. With love Gail

  • The service from Millennium was outstanding. Rachel was sweet, personable and very comforting. It was important to me that my dad was kept locally where I knew where he would be. Very nice facility, state of the art and quality of my fathers remains were so refined compared to my mothers years ago. I highly recommend this place for an affordable choice for your loved one. Thank you for making an already stressful event easy. With high regards, the Esposito and Keith Family.

  • Millennium Cremation provided a fantastic service to our family at a difficult time. Our beloved mother passed away in Vero Beach and the rest of the family was in other parts of the country. Due to the Covid health crisis, none of us could get to Vero Beach in person. That's where Millennium took over. They helped us manage everything, coordinated with a cemetery in Maine, managed the obituaries, expedited all the paperwork, and even delivered an important document locally that saved us days. Funeral director Rachel was a godsend, and she made it clear what she was going to do, and what we needed to do. If you know what you want, Millennium is highly recommended, and the savings versus the full service mortuaries is significant.
