Woman’s Death Still Under Investigation; Retired From Aurora Casket
By Mike Perleberg
(Aurora, Ind.) – The death of an Aurora woman remains under investigation Thursday.
Peggy L. Dean, 57, was found dead in a pond on Dutch Hollow Road just about three hours after she was reported missing from her nearby home. Dean, who reportedly suffered from Alzheimer’s disease, had earlier been seen walking down the road covered in a blanket.
Dearborn County Sheriff’s investigators have called the death an accident. An autopsy was performed, though the results to determine Dean’s cause of death are pending.
Dean was a 35-plus year help desk employee at Aurora Casket Company, retiring in 2007. She was loved by her co-workers, according to her obituary.
She is survived by her husband Edward Dean, her mother, two brothers, and several nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, and cousins.
The visitation for Dean’s family and friends has been scheduled for Friday evening, 4:00-8:00 p.m., at Rullman Funeral Home in Aurora. The funeral will take place Saturday at 11:00 a.m. at the funeral home.
The family has asked that contributions be made to Dearborn County Water Rescue or the Alzheimer’s Association.
