Not sure what to say?

For many years, the Alpha Gamma Delta, Orange County, was looking for Peggy. We enjoyed her company, piano playing and, yes, her hospitality. However, we did not have a forwarding address when she moved from Newport Beach.

All of us remember her fondly wish you confort in your memories of a great lady. Joan F. Allison, Immediate Past President, Newport Beach Alum

She's solely responsible for taking this comic book reading teenager and introducing him to the great writers in her English Lit class at Redford Hi in Detroit...and showing him how enjoyable that could be.

Talk about a favorite teacher...she was all that and more. I'll always cherish her memory and friendship and extend my condolences to her family. She so enjoyed telling my wife and I about their accomplishments at our luncheons together in Florida and California.

Peggy was a great lady one of our Mom's (Donna Ryan) very best friends. They both taught in Detroit. Over the years, Ray and Peg had so many great trips with Jim and Donna, and amazing memories. I know all four of them are up in Heaven, and Peg and Donna are planning some wonderful parties.

I haven't talked to Peg in 5 or 6 years. Honestly I lost touch with where she was. I would like to catch up if you can call us at 248 647 5347.

God Bless

Over cocktails with a few of the guys, she would readily admit she embraced the moniker. Peggy mentored many people over the years positively influencing their lives utilizing her intellect, charm and humor. She was NEVER bashful about correcting individual's grammar or inappropriate language, but of course...

Peg welcomed me into the Cully family over 50 years ago and, along with Ray, continued to inspire me, in Detroit, California and wherever I lived. I will always think of her my other Mom, the Cully's as my extended family and will be grateful fo Carolyn, my chosen sister, for my inclusion into the Cully Clan!
I will cherish the memories of visits at MSU, so many meals around the kitchen tables on Warwick and Alta Vista, her beautifully written and much anticipated Christmas cards, her...
