Not sure what to say?

The Zieschang girls are like "aunts" to me. Peggy always included me in everything that she did with the nieces and nephews. I do not have one memory of summer time that does not involve my "cousins" and Peggy. She was always there for me and when it came to sports, she was one of my biggest fans. Even if I was competing against one of her own athletes, she always coached me on the side. As Peggy's illness took over, it was sometimes hard to handle because this is...

Coach...I didn't get the chance to tell you what an amazing motivator, mentor, and true teacher you were. Thank you for the memories at GPHS (four years of practices, vball/bball games, & the funny jokes I still laugh at today) and most importantly for teaching me to never give up on my goals. I am now a teacher and coach, just like you...thanks again for your inspiration to do things I never thought I could. You will be missed "Coach Z."

Peggy always seemed to be the center of attention when all of the cousins got together. I honestly think she is the only one that could match Grandpa in the number of stories that she had to tell. She was always entertaining and very fun to be around. I'll never forget the football games we would play at their house when we visited. I will sincerely miss her smile and her stories, but will certainly never forget.

I am so happy that Peggy has no more pain and is now in her final...

Peggy, you were a great sister, mentor, teacher, coach, photographer, and all-around friend.I loved you more than you will ever know.We never really said "we love you" growing up, but we showed our love through the way we lived and treated each other.I remember the time we went hunting and just got in the deer blind and here you start pulling bags of potato chips and who knows what else out of your pockets making all this noise. We thought we would never see any deer.It ended up we...

Coach Z was an incredible teacher, coach, motivater, and positive person. She was my High School coach who always encouraged me to go farther, push harder. What an amazing lady who will truly be missed.

Peggy was always the “life” of the party, the center of any conversation, and the “loving and caring angel” for all of her nieces and nephews, cousins and family members. She was never at loss for words and you could bet on “laughing” if she ever paused to catch her breath.

I don’t know if Peggy ever slowed down long enough to look for a husband. (He would have been an anchor anyway). Her love for her students and watching them achieve the goals that she taught them was far more...

Peggy, you have always been an outgoing person who loved everyone. You had a passion for life and achieved so much. Thank you for always being there for us, you are loved and missed always. May God bless you always...
