I will never forget all of the loving moments on my grandmother's lap. She taught me to read and I have had so many adventures that way. I will always remember Tuesday nights, milkshakes with the half spoon, and her Saga of Cats.

Peggy was deeply loved and honored by her son Jon, who predeceased her in 2020. He gave her two beautiful grandchildren, Kelly and Ken. Her passing brings us sadness and a profound sense of loss, but we rejoice in the knowledge she now resides in the everlasting love and care of those she joins in eternal life.
