Our sympathy. Both your Mom and Dad were such great people and good friends to our parents, Bob and Hap Ortner, and cared for both of them during their final days.. We are sure Dick was happy to see her.

Scott, Shelley, Rob - what a loss. I'm so glad Dad, Jen and I were able to spend time with you and your mom at your Dad's service. Peggy was a sorority sister and a very special member of our "extended" family! I will never forget our visits to Brentwood, Kansas City etc. My love and prayers, Cindy Maxwell Mason

Our sympathy, prayers and love to the family of Peggy Andre. Her o.bit. was mailed to us in California by a Cincinnati friend. We were Cincinnati (Brentwood village) neighbors and I worked at P&G with Dick. We have MANY fond memories of them.

The photo gallery is awesome, the one consistent in all those pictures is her smile. Without prejudice of Peg being my Aunt, I have not ever met a lady with such a friendly, caring and upbeat attitude. You guys are in my thoughts. Take care, God Bless,

Thoughts and prayers are with you and memories of an elegant lady with a beautiful family. Peace.
