Patricia Morris Peloquin

TAKOMA PARK, Md. — Patricia Morris Peloquin, 75, retired dental hygienist and homemaker, died peacefully in her sleep, surrounded by her three daughters, on Monday, Aug. 6, 2012, in Takoma Park, Md. For years, she had carried a quote in her wallet stating that one should end life’s journey loudly proclaiming “Wow! What a Ride!” — a sentiment seemingly at odds with her life as an organized, responsible and caring professional woman, mother, wife and neighbor. The quote reminded her to enjoy life and have fun. She loved her family and friends, loved the Maryland shore and her garden, music and dancing, and she frequently reminded her daughters to stop and smell the roses. She also said that, when she was young, single and broke, the best way to have fun was to cook a chicken for her young, single, broke friends. Born Patricia Irene Morris in Salisbury, to Oscar Lee Morris Jr. (editor of the Salisbury Times) and the late Alyce Irene Martino, she earned m...
