Margaret (Peggy) M. Rice

It is with extreme sorrow we announce the passing of our beloved Peggy June 25, 2018.

Margaret (Peggy) M. Rice was born April 6, 1953, in Wakefield to Margaret and Frank Jones of Jamestown. Peg was a lifelong Jamestown resident. She is survived by her husband and best friend, Bob Rice, of Jamestown; and her sons, Chris Turillo, Nathan Turillo and Aaron Turillo.

She was preceded in death by her sisters, Anne Drury and Patricia Sherman, both of Jamestown.

She leaves behind brothers Frank Jones (Nancy) of Oregon, Paul Jones (Lee) of Jamestown and sister Judith Albaugh (Lenny) of Jamestown, as well and many nieces and nephews.

Peg’s many friends will remember her dedication to the protection and well-being of wildlife in her capacity as a licensed wildlife rehabilitator specializing in injured and abandoned rabbits. Think of Peg whenever you catch sight of a rabbit.

A memorial service will be scheduled in the future. Donations in her memory can be sent to the Wildlife Rehabilitators Association of Rhode Island, 2865 Tower Hill Road, Saunderstown RI 02874.
