We had been Peggy's neighbors for over thirty years, she watched our children grow into adulthood. She was hard to get to know but didn't have a mean bone in her body. She was the neighborhood watch person nothing happened that she wasn't aware of it. In her later years we didn't speak much but we exchanged fruit baskets with her at Christmas and we always received a pleasant thank you note afterwards. She will be missed in the neighbor hood.

I have been a neighbor of Peggy's since 1995. She loved working outside, even in inclimate weather. I can't recall how many times Peggy cleared my driveway, by hand, just because she was out working on the street in front of her house or how many times she returned my trash bin to its proper place after the trash had been collected. She is a fixture in the neighborhood. It won't be the same now.

I was Miss Olsens homebuilder in the late 80's. She was a genuinely nice person that I remember to be very diligent in whatever project she was engaged in. Nice lady that will be missed.
