Not sure what to say?

I grew up with her two sons, David and Dennis when Peggy lived across the street from me in Eagle Rock. I remember her being beautiful and proud that she was a cop. RIP.

My greatest gratitude. You served your country well.
Love and thankfulness--
From Minnesota Corrections Officer

I was deeply saddened to learn that Peggy York had passed away. I worked with her through the years during my career. In retirement we met up regularly at social gatherings. She was a superior police officer and a leader/advocate for women in law enforcement. Peggy was simply a great lady. My condolences to her husband Lance Ito, grown children, grandchildren, extended family members, countless friends and the police officers who knew her. She will be missed but the memories remain!

Even when Peggy was 16, she had class, a high degree of emotional intelligence and most of all, commitment. She was always understanding, loving and caring to family and friends.

Peggy was a wonderful leader, who was kind, loving and caring, who truly "walked the walk" She was an absolute inspiration and blessing to all of us who knew her and will be greatly missed.

The first time we met Peggy we knew she was special. Her compassion for others was evident not just by her words but by action. We were privileged to see the "Friends of Maneadero" shelter she founded in Baja Ca. for battered women. We are blessed to have shared so many wonderful memories with Peggy and Lance. We are honored to have had her as our friend. We will miss you Peggy.

I never knew your mom but I’m sending love & Blessings & sympathy for your loss Dave

Peggy was one of a kind. Loving, caring, thoughtful, a blessing to everyone who knew her. As we say in the Salvation Army, she recieved the highest honor. A "Promotion to Glory." She will be greatly missed by all of us here.

Peggy was a wonderful woman. She loved the Lord and shared Him with others. She was an inspiration to so many, caring about her community and beyond. I thank God for her life. She will be missed and was loved dearly.
