Unlike all the other people posting here, I only had the opportunity of knowing Peggy for four weeks. I was her bridge teacher during that time at the Forum. We gave lessons there and Peggy was a good student and a joy to have in class. As I was teaching the lesson, all I had to do was look her way and I was guaranteed a big smile. When the first class was over she exclaimed that this was fun which made my day. We all missed Peggy at last week's lesson.

Peggy and I were both receiving physical therapy at Select PT at the same time. She always had a smile on her face and a kind word. I am so lucky that I got to meet her. She was so special and will be missed by many.

Margaret Foust aka Peggy, was my aunt. For 73 years, she was a positive role model. She was a lover of life. She loved people she loved nature and she just loved living . For 93 years, she consistently expressed the joy and enthusiasm of a young child. She was an extremely wise woman, and quite intelligent. She left a positive and lasting impression on just about everybody she met. For all these years, she loved me and was always supportive of me. I love her and will miss her dearly.

We just got to know Peggy the last 5 years after we moved here!
We would go for walks with our dog Daisy by her house and we always were invited to sit and visit with her she loved to talk and was always so fun and happy with life!
Had lot of laughs about Daisy kissing her and sitting on her lap!! She loved animals and flowers!
She gave some from her garden and every year they come up l think of her!
Lovely Lady!
