      "Virginia Beach - Margaret Sena "Peggy" Balicky, 86, resident of Virginia Beach, passed away January 17, 2013, at Bay Pointe Medical and Rehabilitation Center. From her birth on June 1, 1926, to her death on Thursday, she was generous to others, compassionate in words and actions, and loving to her family and friends. Peggy was born in Johnstown, Pennsylvania, to Harvey and Gertrude McMullen and was the youngest of ten children. After graduation from high school in 1944, she attended Cambria-Rowe Business College in Johnstown. Peggy began her career at American Mutual Benefit Insurance Company in Johnstown and retired from the Virginia Beach Treasurer's Office in 1980. Peggy married Frank Joseph Balicky in Johnstown on November 27, 1947, and he was the love of her life. Left to cherish her memory are her daughters, Anita Balicky Purcell and her husband Harold Purcell of Midlothian, VA, and Saundra Balicky Van Horne and her husband Robert Van Horne of Virginia Beach; eight grandchildren and their spouses, Brian (Stacy) Purcell of Virginia Beach, Lee (Amy) Purcell of New York, Allyson Van Horne (CULBERT) Carolina[sic] of Virginia Beach, Meghan Van Horne of Virginia Beach, Ryan Williams of Virginia Beach, Courtney Williams (Joshua Barbini) of Virginia Beach, Joshua Van Horne of Baltimore, and Kaitlyn Williams of Virginia Beach; and eight great grandchildren, Connor Purcell, Logan Carolino, Hayden Purcell, Seth Carolino, Taylor Purcell, Callen Carolino, Evan Barbini and Gavin Purcell. She was also survived by her brother, Jim McMullen of Gladwin, Michigan. Peggy was preceded in death by her husband, Frank Joseph Balicky; daughter, Cynthia Balicky Williams; parents; and eight siblings. During Frank's military service, the family lived in Fouras, France, and New Orleans, Louisiana, before settling in Virginia Beach. Peggy had many interests and hobbies. She loved solving crossword puzzles, gardening, playing the piano, and spending time with family and friends. Peggy was a devout Christian and an active parishioner at Holy Spirit Catholic Church, including service with the Eucharistic and Outreach Ministries. She also participated in both the Sunshine Club and the Gray Pearls at Holy Spirit.
