Margaret M. Moroz

Date of Death: 
September 29, 2018

Margaret “Peggy” Mary (nee Tarde) Moroz, 66, was born in Philadelphia on March 22nd 1952. She was the youngest child and 3rd daughter born to John M. Tarde Jr. and Elizabeth C. (nee Volk) Vollmer.

According to her husband of 45 years, Bohdan "Bo" Moroz, Peggy was “the best woman who ever lived and there’s no one else like her. She was wonderful to everyone she knew.” She and Bo had 2 children, Marc Moroz and Heather (nee Moroz) Buday, giving every bit of herself to provide them with a better life than she had.

Peggy loved her family - all of it. Whether it was her husband, children, grandchildren, siblings, nieces, nephews, second cousins, or anyone else with any relation, Peggy loved spending time with them and helping them in any way she could. This took many forms, most memorably, coordinating family vacations and being a pillar of support in times of trouble.

Her friendships and the way she invested in them were an important part of who she was. Peggy and her friends traveled, adventured, pampered, and shared the ups and downs of life until her last day.

Peggy started her career as an usherette at the Philadelphia Spectrum, showing ticket-holders to their seats. By the end of her career, she had worked her way up to Vice President over media services for the Philadelphia Flyers, 76ers, and events held at the Spectrum, Wells Fargo Center, and more.

Peggy was most proud and fulfilled in her role as Mom-mom to her 9 grandchildren, spoiling them with gifts, getting them into special events and experiences, helping them with homework, guiding them in their lives, and happily suffering through all of their extra-curricular activities with limitless love and delight in their achievements. Anyone who knew Peggy knew her grandchildren. No one got away without seeing pictures, hearing stories, and watching videos.

On September 29th 2018, surrounded by loving friends and family, Peggy left behind the pains of this world for the joys of heaven.

Peggy is predeceased by her parents John M. Tarde Jr. and Elizabeth C. (nee Volk) Vollmer, her brother John “Jack” M. Tarde Jr. and her sister Rita J. (nee Tarde) Smith.

She is survived by her sister Diana M. (nee Tarde) Ward, husband Bohdan Moroz, son Marc Moroz and his wife Elizabeth (nee Ramos) Moroz, daughter Heather (nee Moroz) Buday and her husband Robert Francis Buday, and grandchildren Marc Moroz II, Anna Marina Moroz, Daniella Celia Moroz, Isabelle Katryna Moroz, Kylee Patricia Buday, Gabriella Justine Moroz, Carolynn Silvia Moroz, Aubrey Margaret Buday, and Robert Michael Buday.

Viewings will be held on Thursday October 4th from 6 PM until 8 PM, and on Friday October 5th from 10 AM until 11 AM at Galzerano Funeral Home, 9304 Old Bustleton Ave, Philadelphia, PA 19115.
There will be a funeral mass next to the funeral home at Maternity of the Blessed Virgin Mary Catholic Church where Peggy was a faithful parishioner. Subsequently, Peggy will be laid to rest at Most Holy Redeemer cemetery. Following the burial, lunch will be provided.

The family has designated the Breast Cancer Research Foundation for memorial contributions.

Memories and Condolences

I worked with Peg at the Spectrum for many years and will always remember her beautiful smile and charming personality. I met her when we were both usherettes and as fate would have it, we both wound up in the executive offices, where we continued to have many pleasant encounters. I would always marvel at her sense of calm and peace, regardless of the urgency of the matter. To her family I can only ask that God dry your tears and heal your hearts. I mourn with you and for you. Rest in peace God's newest angel.

I had the pleasure of knowing Peg for 48 years.
She was a wonderful friend. Through the years our families would get together and always had many laughs together.Peg was a truly good friend.I can always remember her listening to anything I or anyone else had to say and never judging. Loved that about her.
Peg was an amazing woman, Mother, wife and friend and I'm going to miss her. but we will see each other again one day. RIP

Peggy was such a welcoming, loving and gracious person. When I got out of college some 20 years ago my twin brother landed a gig at the Spectrum doing some work with Peggy, Chris, Tony G and crew in the old trailer of an operation that they had. I’d come visit him and she made me and all of us feel at home, giving advice of this and that, and always smiling. I eventually landed a job at the old Spectrum and had the pleasure of still working with Peggy...although in a different department, she was our “work mom” and I will never forget all of the good times and laughs we had...simpler times...may God Bless you Peggy, thoughts and prayers to you all.

I worked with Peg at Wells Fargo Center for 14 years and it was Peg that supported my promotion to the production department she managed. We spent countless hours together working Flyers, Sixers, Nova and the myriad of other games and events that were scheduled and while we sat on the balcony level together we talked about everything under the sun. We discussed serious topics like our mutual battles with cancer and the crazy commitment out jobs required but we also laughed heartily, helping each other to balance the stresses of our lives. We shared stories about vacations and holidays, about friends and family, about good times and bad, then we went home only to come back the next day and start all over again. I count myself lucky to have known Peg and I'll always be thankful for her influence on my life. I wish her husband, children, extended family, and friends peace and solace as they work through this most tragic time. With love to heaven and back, Matt Coppola

Rest in Peace Peggy. We are going to miss you in this world. You were a wonderful woman and a fighter. I’m glad you aren’t suffering anymore. Tell everyone in our family up in heaven hello. I will see you again one day. Love you.
