When my wife was diagnosed with cancer Mrs Bellar provided a strong encouraging hand. I will always be grateful to her for being a compassionate caring friend. I have no doubt that she helped many others with Godly support. She was a true warrior and an inspiration to our family. May God grant you peace in this difficult moment.

Fighter, lover of Jesus, a second mom to many, giver, cheerleader, hard worker, best chocolate chip cookie baker in the world!!!, she was so very brave, she is a soul that will be missed...these are but a few words to describe Peggy Bellar. I will miss her hugs. I will miss her laugh that was infectious. I will miss her never ending love and support. Peggy was the voice you heard over an entire crowd in a gymnasium, cheering on her kids as well as their teammates. When she decided she loved you, she was your biggest cheerleader no matter what it was you were doing. I have no doubt that she will continue cheering us on in heaven, and knowing Peggy, she'll make sure we hear her cheering on occasion. I love you, Peggy. Thank you for your support, always.

I would think I was cheering Peggy up when I was with her and I would leave and realize she cheered me up. She was a friend that everyone needs. Such beauty in grace spirit and faith. I will miss my friend until I see her again.
