  1. There are no words to adequately convey the depth of my broken heart.. she was my best friend. The most non-judgemental person I’ve ever met and keeper of my innermost secrets and dreams. Her family was everything to my dear Peg and there will be a huge gap where nothing but love and understanding once existed. Peg, you will forever be in my heart and I will cherish my wonderful memories of an irreplaceable friend. Love and prayers to this wonderful family as they begin to cope with the loss of their beloved wife, mother, grandma and aunt. Peg .. my forever bestie … sleep the sleep of angels… you deserve to be free of pain and at peace .. I will expect you to sign up for the very first FolksMarch when you get to where you’re going…and will love and miss you forever…..

  2. Nooo i was so shocked to see her passing. She was a beautiful sole and so much fun to be around. I cherished our time together at the Y and at The commons. I know she will be deeply missed by all. My condolences to all the family that she loved so much
    Rest in peace my friend.

  3. Dearest Bill and family,

    It is with a heavy heart that I share this note of sympathy to all of you. I was saddened to read of Peggy’s passing. She was a very special lady. We enjoyed many fun times together. In addition, Peg was loving, generous, and happy each time we spoke. I can’t thank you enough for permitting your children to babysit my sons many years ago.

    May Peggy RIP with Our Lord and Savior.
    In sympathy and friendship,
