Peggy was such a wonderful friend to my grandmother Charline. She fondly remembers traveling to Aruba together with their husbands; as well as many good times shared at Rosemont Christian Church. So much laughter over decades.
Sending prayers for the best memories of joyful moments together to help sustain all your family during this time.

Peggy was such a great friend to my mom Irene and aunt Dorothy. They spent lots of good times together in Grand Prairie taking turns having lunch at one or the others homes. It was a pleasure to stay in contact with her by phone; always cheerful and upbeat.
Sending prayers of peace and comfort to her family.

My dear little neighbor Peggy will surely be missed. She has been our quiet neighbor for the past six years. I always enjoyed taking her food as she enjoyed all varieties and never refused anything. Always complimented and wrote beautiful thank you notes for everything. Now, who will eat my leftovers? I already miss her and will miss her family too.
