    Peggy was a wonderful person and mother-in-law to me. I thanked God for the chance to chat with you in recent times and will pray for you to enjoy you new life in Heaven with your friend and love Don again. It is not the end of life, but a new beginning. Until we can meet again someday, I miss you…always have, always will.

From the first night shift at PTAB you took me under your wing we had so many crazy nights full of laughter and fun, your smile would brighten up any room. You will be missed dearly.

  7. Allison Agrusa says

    Peggy was a very selfless person when it came to family and friends. She helped so many of us through illness or hardship. She helped me in more ways than I can count for most of my life. She was not only a parent to me, she was also my friend. I will miss our hour long phone calls and making eachother laugh. She will truly be missed, but she will continue to watch over us from up above.

  8. Brittany Henden says

    Gramma, I could write a novel expressing how much you have shaped my life and how much I will miss you, but there is no need. You will forever live on through me, and after that, Cooper. Your beautiful spirit will never fade. I love you so much. You have truly taken a part of my heart with you. Your loving granddaughter always.
