Met Peggy when she moved to Westland St. N.B. Although I lived on the Acushnet end of the street we WERE neighbors. Enjoyed some dinners at the Blue Point and many laughs and talks about family. Peggy truly loved her family and extended that to many friends, me included. She will be missed but her memory will last in my heart. RIP

My thoughts to the family. Peggy was a sweetheart. One of the funniest people I know. Her laugh was infectious. She could cheer up the world. She’s probably scratching her lottery tickets and laughing. Prayers to all her family

I didn’t know Peggy long, I met her as customers at Four Corners Restaurant. She was a wonderful person and I will miss her hilarious comments while eating breakfast! My thoughts and prayers are with your family at this difficult time. RIP Peggy.🙏

Peggy, I have met so many people in my life, some became passing acquaintances. some became passing friends, some true friends but you became and will remain a dear friend. We have been through many hard times trying to help you fight through that nasty debilatating cancer.
I do know one thing for sure is that I am positive that your legacy will be truly missed by me, your family and thousands of people that have been part of your life in any manner. Your personality of being outspoken, sometimes crude, always funny can only be out shadowed by your truly generosities and love of life. I've always said that you should have run for public office because you knew and cared for so many people.
You will always have a special place in my heart.
Sincerely, your dear friend for over a half century.
