​​      Dear Members and Friends of the Milford Historical Society,

It is with great sadness and shock that we have to inform you that our caretaker, PJ, died suddenly on Dec. 5. She was found by a friend, and Ace, her loyal dog, was by her side. We extend our sympathy to PJ's family and especially her sister, Pam, who has arranged a service for her.

The following information was supplied by Cody-White Funeral Home.

Pandora “PJ” Peabody, of Milford, beloved sister, aunt and friend, peacefully entered into eternal rest on Dec 5, 2018. She was born June 29, 1959 in Needham, MA and then moved to the Ithaca area when she was two. After attending Trumansburg, NY High School and Cornell University, she worked for Carl Sagan. Later, she moved to CT and worked as an office manager and draftsman. Most recently she was the caretaker at the Milford Historical Society. She is survived by her three sisters, seven nieces and nephews and too many friends to count.

A Funeral Service will be celebrated on Saturday, Dec. 15, 2018 at 11 a.m. at Mary Taylor Memorial United Methodist Church, 176 Broad St., Milford, CT. Interment will be private. In lieu of flowers, donations in memory of PJ may be made to Yankee Golden Retriever Rescue, 110 Chapin Rd., Hudson, MA 01749.


The Society will be sending a memorial flower arrangement to the church, and we suggest anyone wanting to make a donation to send it to Yankee Golden Retriever Rescue, per PJ’s wishes.

If you would like to sends words of condolence, please mail sympathy cards to the Milford Historical Society at P.O. Box 337, Milford 06460. Mail will be forwarded to PJ’s family.
