Tony, Lou I am sorry to hear Tony's mother (Peggy) passed away. Though I did not know Peggy personally, I do know she raised one great son Tony. We are blessed to have Tony in our community. He takes care of everyone and always willing to give a helping hand. Thank you Peggy! You have so much to be proud of.

My FAVORITE memory of sweet Peggy would have to be all of our drives - she was the most intelligent women I have ever met. She knew every tree and every flower! We took lots of drives out where she grew up by Salt Creek and she told me all her memories of growing up. She was always down to get Chick Fil A with me until she told me one day she didn’t really like it and only went for me, so swing in Stromboli’s were our go to after that! Gahh I love that women! What a wonderful, caring, and loving soul!

Shes SO dearly missed and NEVER FORGOTTEN!! ❤️

I am sorry to hear about Peggy. She was a wonderful woman. My Mom(June) and her worked together at Arlington School for many years. When I would stop in at the school, Peggy would always have a snack for me. My condolences to the family♥️

You must continue to carry her memory in that special place in your heart. We are sincerely sorry for the loss of your mother. Prayers for peace and comfort in the days ahead.
