So it's easily within the realm of believability that Peggy could still be alive.
Most of those vets were likely late teens or early twenties at the end of WW2 in 1945. Peggy was an officer level ee in advanced science unit of the military which would make her at least 30, not to mention the war wasn't even over yet when Cap went down in the North Atlantic. (1942)

Although even if I just use your numbers for basis of comparison, that's only 12.5% of the vets still alive, which means there's almost an 88% chance that Peggy has left this mortal plain.
