Jim and I have lost a dear friend. We have known her and Dale since the 70’s. Peggy and I were fortunate not only to work together but slide into work together when it snowed. Jim and I will always remember her sweet smile and her love for Dale and family. Our love, thoughts and prayers are with Dale, Cindy and all of her family. Our loss of a wonderful lady is God’s new angel.

I worked with Peggy at Ford Motor credit for 24 years and have never known a kinder,sweeter person.She was a pleasure to work with,And will be sorely missed.
She and Dale were kind enough to attend my
Daughter’s wedding some 25 years ago and their presence only added to the joy of the occasion. My family sends their condolences and prayers .She was a light and joy to all who knew her.I am sure God has received another Angel.

We have wonderful memories of our sweet sister-in-law who always had a smile to greet you. No one loved walking on the beach, looking for Pawley Shells more than Peggy. Good times with a lovely woman. Our hearts are heavy with sorrow, but we know that she is in a good place and that we will see her again. Love and prayers to the family.

Peggy was a delightful soul who was always smiling. Her love and dedication to her family was apparent. Her suffering is now over and she has gone to a much better place. She will be missed by those who were so close to her.

I went to high school with Peggy where we became life long friends. We had many fun times together.... especially on our high school senior trip! We remained friends over the years enjoying get togethers with other high school friends.

I am so very sorry for your loss. Peggy was a lovely person and will be sorely missed.
