Peggy Malloy Brodie Taylor
Resident of Concord, Ca.
November 6, 1925 - August 30, 2019.
Peggy Malloy Brodie Taylor passed away Tuesday peacefully in her sleep. Her daughter, Trish, was with her and eased her passing. Peggy lived her life guided by her love of Hawaii and her children, and her gracious spirit. She was, and will continue to be, the heart of our family. And she will always be known to us as "Tutu."
Peggy was born in Honolulu, Hawaii to James and Elizabeth Malloy. She is the middle of three daughters. Peggy was preceded in death by her sister, Betty Anne Nilsen; her husbands, Edward Brodie and Eugene Taylor; and two children, Douglas Brodie and Diane Brodie. She is survived by her sister Pat Malloy; two children, Trish Brodie and Bruce Brodie (Kathy); five grandchildren, Beth (Doug Gregory), David (Missy), Jeff (Courtney), Jean (Jeremiah James), Danny; and nine great grandchildren, Matilda, Archie, Luna, Penn, Grace, Theo, Janice, Eddie and William.
Peggy grew up in Hawaii and loved horseback riding, surfing and socializing with her friends. After the attack on Pearl Harbor, and the fear of invasion, she sailed in a convoy to the mainland to finish high school at Flint Ridge, CA, and then on to Stephens College in Columbia, Mo where she meet her husband, Ed Brodie. They moved to Hawaii in 1957 where they raised four children. Peggy eventually moved to Houston and then to Walnut Creek, CA, where she met and married Gene Taylor.
