When I think of Aunt Peggy, I always associate her with such a calm & gentle presence. Much love to Uncle Jerry and my Baker cousins.

I treasure all the memories of growing up with you. Sharing a bedroom led to times filled with laughter and quiet secrets. Fishing on the river, ice skating at the park, playing royal rummy, and holidays at home. As the years passed quickly by we grew closer still. Our talks, our walks, and special times shared meant so much to me. You were the BEST big sister! I miss you, Peggy! You’re always in my heart. Love you! Bonnie ❤️
