PEGGY JANE GOFF SAPIR, a considerate and passionate volunteer for a great many causes, passed to eternal rest on Friday, May 19, 2017 at her home surrounded by her family and friends. Her death at 63 followed a long, brave and courageous battle with cancer.
Sapir was an active member of the community and volunteered with many organizations in New Orleans. She especially enjoyed spending time with children, often in playgrounds and ballparks. One of her special delights involved taking children to concession stands for their favorite treats.
A private graveside service was held on Sunday, May 21, at Hebrew Rest Cemetery #3.
She is survived by her husband of many years, Judge Eddie L Sapir; her son John Paul Sapir (Charlotte); siblings Patricia Goff Hummel (Tim) and Michael Goff (Jackie) and two grandchildren.
In lieu of flowers, the family suggests memorial contributions be sent to Children’s Hospital, Office of Development, 200 Henry Clay Ave, New Orleans, LA 70118. Donations will support Children’s Hospital’s ongoing project to provide short-term housing for parents of children being cared for in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit.
