Peggy Kemp (1944 - 2002) was the daughter of Isabella M. McColgan and Joseph C. Kemp and the granddaughter of Mary Jane Tinneny and John P. McColgan of Greenock, Scotland and Philadelphia.  She was the great-granddaughter of Yankee Pat Tinneny of Goladuff, County Fermanagh, Ireland.  

In 1991 after working in various capacities and raising a family Peggy returned to college to pursue a degree in nursing, a profession she had been interested in since her days as a student at John W. Hallahan Catholic Girls' High School in Philadelphia where she was an active member of the Future Nurses Club. She enrolled in the nursing program at Camden County Community College in New Jersey where she completed the degree in December 1995 and became a registered nurse. 

After earning her nursing credentials, Peggy found employment as a nurse and a telephonic case manager with IntraCorp, a division of the SIGNA Insurance Company.  In that job she primarily worked with workers compensation patients.
