I'm so sorry for your loss. Peggy was a very kind and lovely person who, as classmate Lea Ann Ford says, "had a smile that could light up a room" and was a joy to know. May the Lord God comfort your family during this very sad time. Your family is in my prayers.

We send our heartfelt condolences to Peggy's mother, Margaret, and her entire family.
Nick always remembers Peggy as one of his "best" workers at Bonanza.
So young to leave us . . . . God Bless . . . and may she rest in peace.

Thanks so much. It is very hard saying goodbye to another daughter but is is at peace now. The girls enjoyed working for you and learned so much about working for someone other than Mom.

I am so so sorry to hear of Peggy's passing. Peggy was one of my best friends all through highschool. She always had a smile that could light up a room. I don't believe I ever heard her say anything bad about anyone. Peggy had a heart of gold. A truly beautiful soul inside and out. She will be deeply missed.
