Condolences to the Palmieri Family.
I was lucky enough to work with Peg at TK Beecher. She always had a smile for the kids and teachers! It was an enjoyable part of my day when we were in Peg's Computer Class. She was such a positive, giving person who I know will be missed!!❤

I’m so very sorry to hear of Pegs passing. I worked with her at Beecher school. Peg not only taught the children she also shared her technology skills with all the adults as well. We were so grateful to have her on staff. Peg I know you are dancing in Heaven with your slippers on! My prayers go out to her entire family. She was one special lady.

My sympathy and prayers to Peg's family. I worked at Beecher School with Peg. We had such fun times together. Because I lived out in the country, Peg thought I came to work by dog sled in the winter!! Fond memories.
