Peggy lost her courageous battle with cancer on Saturday, October 3rd, 2020, at the age of 69. She grew up in Grand Isle, Louisiana, where she lived most of her life, and most recently resided in Gonzales, Louisiana. One of the joys of her life was operating Learn & Play Nursery School, in Grand Isle, and she loved every child she encountered through the years. Peggy was a devout Catholic and member of the Catholic Daughters and VFW Auxiliary. She is survived by her husband, of 52 years, Glenn E. Chance, Sr.; daughters, April Chance Arceneaux and husband Matt, Mandy Chance Gomez and husband Fredrick; son, Glenn E. Chance, Jr. and wife Rhonda; grandchildren, Grace Arceneaux, Matthew Arceneaux, Chance Gomez, Cohen Gomez, and Jesse Chance; mother, Alva Chighizola, and brother, Jacob Kelly Chighizola, Jr. She was preceded in death by her father, Jacob Kelly Chighizola, Sr. and sister, Penny Chighizola Besson. Pallbearers will be Matt Arceneaux, Simon Besson, Matthew Arceneaux, Fredrick Gomez, Frank Besson, and Dale Chance. The Chance family would like to extend a special thanks to Clarity Hospice, especially Wendy, Teri, and Cheri for the tremendous compassion and care they provided. Peggy always demonstrated a special love for children, so in lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the “Peggy Chance Memorial Fund” at the St. Jude Research Hospital. Ourso Funeral Home of Gonzales (www.oursofh.com) is in charge of arrangements.

I am deeply saddened at the passing of my friend , Peggy. We became friends through St. Theresa Church. We were both lectors and eucharistic ministers. We sat together every Sunday with other friends. We will all miss her. She was a very caring and kind lady. Peggy, we'll never forget you.

Grief never ends.... but it changes. It’s a passage not a place to stay. Grief is not a sign of weakness , nor a lack of faith ... It is the price of Love.

Peggy was a beautiful soul and a angel with wings.
