So thankful for all the memories that we had growing up with an aunt like our Auntie Peggy, she always made sure we had a good time at her trailer and swimming in the pool, especially when Astin came to visit. When I got married and moved back to the West Coast she made sure to come meet Jonathon and buy us our first bean pot and first bag of pinto beans.

She always had something good to say about everyone and everything and was always praying for you. She will be sorely missed.

My heart goes out to Ashia and Astin, she was so proud of you both and made sure that everyone knew it.

So relieved to know that she is living out her dreams worshiping her Jesus in heaven with all the angels!

Aunty I'm truly going to miss you. Words can not express this aching pain I have in my heart. You left without out a sound, but this isn't good bye. They say that some day we'll all be back together with our loved ones. I'm going to miss you. I will cherish the memories I have of you.
I have so much to say but just can't find the words. I'm still in disbelief that you are gone.
I will always have you in my heart. Love you aunty, Your niece Dorene

Peggy has been my sister since I was 16 years old. I married her brother Robert but she took me in as her family even before that. She stood with me in the good times and bad.
Everyone that is her friend is considered a best friend. She is so loving and welcoming. She is always ready and willing to pray with or for you. And her and Patty did so much in the community all on their own. Such an awesome example of a Christ follower. My friend Annette Silva Fields told me that she would see Peggy all of the time at the retirement home visiting all of her former patients. Just making sure that they had visitors, and were being taken care of. So many people will miss her. But we are all so relieved that she is no longer in pain, and has all of her strength back, and I just know that she is seated at the feet of Jesus! We love you and will miss you Peggy!

God bless you...I love you, Honey. These were Peggy's last words at the end of every phone conversation and even when she left a voicemail. We wouldn't see each other very often depending what was going on in our lives. But when we met again it was like we just spoke yesterday, never missing a beat. Due to her health issues and my health issues we haven't seen each other in quite a while but we spoke on the phone every now and then. Every conversation would include our Lord Jesus Christ and how much she loves Him and how He will always take care of us. Now Peggy is in the loving arms of Jesus and He is taking good care of her. I can only imagine what it's like to be in the arms of our Savior that Peggy loved so much. Praying that all who loved Peggy will find peace and comfort in our Lord Jesus Christ that Peggy loved so much.

My very first memory of beautiful Peggy was the day I first met her and Patty. They were two years old and standing on a chair in grandma’s dining area.
I later became their aunt.
Peggy was a beautiful girl, inside and out! But most of all, she loved Jesus with her whole heart! She was thoughtful and a prayer warrior!!! I could call on her if I needed prayer or help with anything.
Until we meet again, I love you Peggy.

Dear Peggy,

I haven't seen you in awhile I was shocked to hear about your passing. You are such a beautiful person I remember your soft voice and yes you're squeaky laugh.
And I would always remember seeing you with your little doggie.
Everyone has special memories of you Peggy.

Love and Christ Anna

You were my bestie as we called each other. We had so many fun times like our trips to Laughlin..even tho I think we were usually donators lol and our lunches at Canton with good food and catch up talk as you munched out on crackers and butter and our daily phone calls Peg you were more than a friend you showed me so much kindness and love and you ever let me loose faith. I remember us talking about our kids together and your face would like up when you spoke of your dreams and memories of your babies. You had the most silly little squeaky laugh that it would make me laugh. You were truly my bestie. I love you Peg and you will live in my heart forever. Until we meet again you sore with angels.

Peggy Sue, my sister in Christ

Our family lived down the street from your family, on Santa Fe drive. We all as kids played games together and we would ride our horses. We would play at your grandparents house running in and out grabbing a home made tortilla with butter of course. And the holiday season it would be sweet tamales. I will never forget those times and many more, the Zamora girls and my twin sister Janice and younger sister Debra all had the best time with each other. After moving out of the area I would always stay in touch, stopping in for the best Del Taco and enjoying some more time and catching up where we left off.

Until we meet again Peggy Sue, I Love you and will miss the time we got to spend time together.

My dearest Peggy, though we hadn't stayed in touch through out the years, I have very fond memories of our childhood. You and your family will always have a very special place in my heart. I was very saddened and shocked by the news. My deepest condolences to all the family. Rest in peace my friend.
All my love 💔
