Margaret ‘Peggy’ Kinville

Surrounded by her loving family, Margaret “Peggy” Kinville, 71, passed away at Syracuse Home on June 20, 2018, after a hard-fought battle with cancer.

Born in Saranac Lake on May 14, 1947, Peggy was the second of four children born to Dr. Edward and Ruth Mulflur. She graduated from Saranac Lake High School and attended Maria Regina College. She worked at Crouse Hinds before staying home to raise her children. Following her passion to teach, Peggy then taught preschool at Faith Lutheran Nursery School in Cicero and then Village Nursery School in Fayetteville. She lived in the Fayetteville-Manlius area for 20 years before moving to Baldwinsville to be closer to her grandsons.

Peggy married her high school sweetheart, Earl “Bud” Kinville on May 1, 1971. Deeply devoted to one another, Peg and Bud shared a simple and selfless life. Most of all, Peggy loved spending time with family and friends. She loved hosting holidays, traveling and spending time with her grandchildren. Peggy’s generous spirit, quick wit and compassionate heart were appreciated by many. Always smiling, Peggy had a genuine interest in others and was quick to lend a helping hand. Her laugh could be heard miles away and will always be remembered.

Peggy is survived by her husband of 47 years, Earl “Bud” Kinville; daughter AnnMarie (Chad) Lynch; son Brian (Dawn) Kinville; five grandsons: Adam, Braden, Evan, Keegan and Tiernan; two sisters: Joan, of Baldwinsville, and Kathleen, of Florida; brother Edward, of California; and many nieces and nephews.

The family would like to thank the nurses and aides at Syracuse Home at McHarrie Place for making Peggy feel at “home” and for treating her with respect and love.
