So sorry that we have lost one of the best. Peggy was the true example of a soft spoken Southern Belle. Always a smile and kind word for everyone. Several of us who were her neighbors have wonderful memories of her entertaining us in true Peggy style at SCC shortly after her 98th birthday. What fun she was! Rest In Peace sweet friend. I will always miss you. Jo Robinette

Our dear, sweet “Peggy “. One of the most beautiful, loving and genteel women I’ve ever known. Our daughter is so blessed to be a member of your family.
I so enjoyed the lunch outings with Peggy and Ruby. And the 2 Christmases we played our Advent game will never be forgotten. Rest In Peace, sweet lady and dear friend.
