Alamae "Peggy" Long

Alamae “Peggy” Long, 88 of Streator passed away Tuesday (August 25, 2020) at OSF St. James Hospital, Pontiac.

Peggy was born on September 23, 1931 in rural Doniphan, Missouri, to Al and Ollie Mae Robinson.  She moved, with her family, to Streator in 1945.

She married Donald Long, the absolute love of her life, on April 26, 1952, after waiting a year for him to come home to her from the Korean War.  They remained devoted to each other for 68 years.

Peggy loved spending time in the kitchen baking so she could spoil her children and grandchildren with delicious cookies, cakes, pies and bread.  She also loved her flower gardens and never turned down the chance to go shopping for more flowers.

She was a life-long member of the Bridge Street Church of Christ.

Peggy is survived by her husband, Donald, her children, Dale (Kathy) Long, Donald (Patty) Long and Kim (Kenny) Depoister; beloved grandchildren, Donnie (Tara) Long, Sunny Weller, Robbie (Kelly) Long, Dale Long II, Crystal (Mike) Persinger, Sarah (Josh) Yankura, Leni (Dan) Kuntz and Kyle Depoister; and her greatest joy, 23 great-grandchildren along with several nieces and nephews.

She is preceded in death by her parents, sisters, Irene (Ellis) Emmons, Pauline (Russell) Holland, Lelia (Robert) Longnecker, Lillian Gore and Vida Jean Frey, brothers, Truman Robinson, Carl Robinson, J.M. (Barbara) Robinson and Dwain Robinson, along with several nieces and nephews.

Visitation will be held Saturday from 10 – 11:30 am at the Winterrowd Funeral Home.  Funeral services will be held at 11:30am at the funeral home with Rev. Dan Henry officiating.  Burial will be in Riverview Cemetery.  Serving as pallbearers will be her grandsons and nephews, Larry Gore, David Gore and Jeff Frey.

Memorials may be made in Peggy’s name to Operation Smile or a charity of the donor’s choice.

Due to the Covid-19 Pandemic, Social distancing guidelines and face masks will be required.

To the Long Family,
I am sorry to learn of the loss of your wife and mother. The Long family was always so supportive of Woodland and the administration, faculty and staff. I always appreciated the support and friendship of everyone in your family. I am now living near Kansas City, and under the current circumstances, I regret not being able to be there to express my condolences to each of you in person. Please know that I will be keeping your family in my thoughts and prayers as you go through the process of life without this wonderful lady.

To Peggys family, I was so sorry to hear about Peggy. I loved her dearly and I will miss talking to her. I had talked to her a short time ago. Peggy and Don always came to see my mom and dad when they came to Doniphan. She was one of the sweetest people I know and always had a smile. All of you are in my thoughts and Prayers at this difficult time. Love you Cousin.
