Jennings: After a long three-year struggle with cancer Peggy passed peaceful in her sleep on September 2, 2017. She attended Jennings High School, Class of 1958. She Attended Morgan Trade School in Jennings, La. Where she met and fell in love with Bernard L. "Gary" Burger. They were married September 21, 1957.

Peggy was affectionately known as "Nanny Peggy" to many. She was that person anyone could confide in, she was that "Favorite Aunt" to all who knew her, rather they were blood kin or not. Her hobbies included cooking, camping & fishing but her favorite hobby was doing ceramics with her longtime friends Donna O'toole & Ann Cook (affectionately aka Peggys lil dummy) at Ceramics of Conroe the last 17 years & made many friends there. She shared her love of ceramics to many by making each family member a special Christmas ornaments given every year made by her with lots of love. After her illness made it too difficult for her to continue that special tradition she began all those years ago, it didn't stop, Her family would like to thank, Ms Donna, & all involved at the shop who has carried on that tradition for her these last 3 years.

After retiring from Houston US Postal Service in 1992 they moved to their Lake Conroe "Camp" in Willis, Texas. She enjoyed cooking for all who came to visit & stay weeks at a time. She & Gary taught many how to swim, water ski at Lake Conroe. She also enjoyed hosting a yearly 4th of July Celebration at their home on lake Conroe till 3 years ago, which was moved to her nephew & nieces home down the road from their home.

Though she never had children of her own, she was a strong influence to many nieces, nephews, great nieces & great nephews and they were all thankful for her kindest & caring toward them anytime they were in need. She will be greatly missed by many.
