In Memoriam

Mrs. Margaret (Peggy) M. BloomfieldOn May 1, 2013, Mrs. Margaret (Peggy) M. Bloomfield passed away. She was the widow of William E. Bloomfield, Sr., who died in 2004. The couple began what became an extraordinarily successful nationwide apartment-laundry business – Web Service Company. They then spent the rest of their lives giving back to the community in numerous ways, including being dedicated to a variety of causes related to health. One of Mrs. Bloomfield’s favorite memories was working with her husband to install the billboard on Santa Monica Boulevard, in West Los Angeles, that counts the number of smoking deaths annually. A leading supporter of UCLA, she was chair of the UCLA Chancellor’s Cabinet of the Chancellor’s Associates; a member of and major donor to the UCLA Women’s Health Executive Advisory Board; a long-standing and generous donor to the Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center, Eli and Edythe Broad Center of Regenerative Medicine and Stem Cell Research at UCLA, and UCLA/Orthopaedic Hospital Center for Cerebral Palsy; and a member of Women & Philanthropy at UCLA, among others. Mrs. Bloomfield also attended the Westwood Village Rotary Club meetings until shortly before her death. Among her other passions were  music, children’s health, politics, and education, and she was a member of the Mayflower Society and the Daughters of the American Revolution. Mrs. Bloomfield is survived by her son, daughter, stepdaughter, eight grandchildren, and 17 great grandchildren. Donations may be made at www.cancer.ucla.edu.
