Peggy was always so welcoming & shared the love of travel with my Dad. No matter the situation you could go to Peggy for a laugh. She loved to give people nicknames. Most importantly she shared the last part of her life, with my Dad and made him happy. Thank you. Rest in peace.

My thoughts and prayers are with the loved ones mourning Peggy’s loss. She was so warm and had such a big heart, instantly likable. I could listen to her stories over and over.

I remember the first time I met Peggy. She was so elegant but down to earth. She was quick witted & had some great One-liners. I knew why my grandfather adored & loved her. She always made you feel welcomed and people just naturally gravitated towards her. She will be missed.
