    I am so very sorry to hear of Peggy’s passing. Peggy and I first met in 1966 when we were both teaching at Clear Lake. We have remained friends ever since. She was one of the loveliest people I have ever known and I will miss her. My sympathy and prayers are with her family.

    I’ve known Peggy my entire life. I grew up in the church with her and her mother was my very first Sunday School teacher. Peggy was a sweet lady and she will be missed by all who knew her. I always enjoyed being in Bible studies with her. My condolences to all her family.

    I’m going to miss our talks and bonding over Dylan’s quesadillas. I find peace in knowing she’s with our lord and her family members she talked about missing. God bless her family whom she loved so much.Love you Ms. Peggy♥️

    Peg was a very very dear friend of mine since elementary school and it is so hard to realize she is now gone. Knowing she will be in heaven with her husband Bob, her dearly loved and precious baby boy Ashley and her parents is a heart warming feeling.
    God Bless you Peg
    I love you so so much

    Mrs Peggy was always one of my favorite people. She was such a fun lady and was always one of my biggest fans on Facebook. She loved to travel as much as me and we talked many times about our adventures. She will be missed but now she is having the best adventure and I know I will see her again. Love you all because we are all like family.
