Peggy will be missed by all who had the pleasure of knowing her. My husband and I had the pleasure of playing bridge with the Sabens for many years.

I’m just crestfallen to learn of such a loss. Peggy was a generous advisor to me when I served as Contemporary Club president during our 125th anniversary season. Such a gracious lady who cared for our community in so many ways.

Peggy will be missed by so many! We loved having her in our NFL Dynasty - the "Old Gray Mare" knew her stuff! What a remarkable life, well lived. Our thoughts are with the family.
