I talked to Peggy daily when she was the cook at Brookings School. I always looked forward to her daily phone call ordering milk and other items for the school lunches. She would always have a funny story and make me laugh. What a great person. I am so sorry for your loss.

Our cousin Larry's wife Peggy always was beloved by all of the family. We all will miss her deeply. She was a beautiful person and a beautiful soul. Her daughter Tina, son-in law Jimmy and grandson Jason and his two boys and Bryan and Jessica and their daughter were the lights of her life bringing her much joy. Rest in Peace amongst all who have gone before you.
