In 1971, Ms. Peggy Paul was my first grade teacher at T.S. Cooley Elementary. Her grace, loving nature, kindness, patience, and dedication to teaching will always be dear to me. She made an impact on my life and started me on a path of loving to read stories. While I appreciate all teachers, a teacher of 30 years who makes an impression on approximately 600 first graders is a rare treasure. Thank you, Ms. Paul. ~Susette Duplechin

Peggy was an angel on earth. She was devoted to providing love, support and education to everyone she met and did so with joy in her heart. Now she joins mom, Judy Rosteet and all her other angel friends who predeceased her in heaven. God Bless her soul and may she rest in peace. We send our love and prayers to her family at this sad time.

To the family of Peggy Paul, I am so very sorry for your loss. Ms. Paul was my 1st grade teacher. She was the best teacher ever and loved her students. I remember when she retired from teaching and I wanted to go really bad but I had just given birth to my second child. Keeping the family in my thoughts and prayers. I loved this sweet lady
