Margaret Mary “Peggy” (Brennan) Commane (81) of Westwood passed away peacefully surrounded by loving family on March 17th after a brief illness.  She was one of nine children born in Brookline, MA on June 15, 1942 to the late Martin and Mary (O’Leary) Brennan. Peggy was a 1960 graduate of St. Mary of the Assumption High School in Brookline and went on to work as a secretary in Boston’s Financial District. In 1965, Peggy married the love of her life, the late Alphonsus Commane, a true Irish gentleman from County Clare and she became a full-time mother to her children.  Even through the many trials of life, Peggy and Al’s love story was inspiring and they remained in love until the day God took them home. Family was of utmost importance to Peggy. She and Al were known for their gift of hospitality and often hosted large gatherings with family and friends over their many years together. Peggy was also a “history buff” and enjoyed traveling and was blessed to go on many trips with Al and her children.
