Peighton was someone who brought so much love and joy to all who met her. She was an "Angel on Earth." A descendant of the Nicholas A Essner Family, she loved going to the big family reunions. She also loved movies, music, books, dancing, taking pictures, playing piano, sports, swimming and camping. Her favorite things were her dog, Charlie, playing super hero, JoJo Siwa, Hannah Montana, Frozen, unicorns, Squishies and stuffed animals.
When she spent time at Nana's house she loved to carry around Daisey the cat like a baby which brought so much joy to her life. She and Nana often drank morning coffee together and before she left to go home they always did "pinky friends forever." She loved to sit on her Grandpa's lap and comb his beard.
