We send our sincere sympathy to her son Tom and family. Peggy was a friend for many many years and we too will miss her similing face. Peggy was a chartered member of Bahaca Court No. 90, Ladies' Oriental Shrine of North America, Inc. (LOSNA) which was instituted in March 1973 as well as being a Past High Priestess of the Court. She loved dressing out in their Clown
Unit and entertaining the Children. Our Grand Coucil Sessions and Unit Meets took us on many trips together. May all of you find comfort in knowing she has left many fond memories with us and we too will miss her.
Jenny and Lee Burchfield, Chattanooga, TN
