What a great lady she was! She was always up beat and happy. She was out going and never met a stranger. I was honored to be associated with her through bowling. I am saddened by her passing, but know she is entertaining the heavenly hosts right now. Will miss her.

Dear Janice, so sorry to hear about your Mom. She was one great “old broad”. She added so much to the bowling scene and even at our young age, we called her Atha. I’m sorry not to have seen her lately but I do remember the last time.. All I could say was “ gosh you really look good. Please know we are thinking of you. Peace🙏 Love you Peggy 😢

I was so glad I went to visit her the day before she passed. Went to the grocery for her and got some fruit she wanted. Bought her a newspaper and told her to work the puzzle. I called my mom and let the two of the talk on the phone. Her and I had a special relation. She was one of the dearest friends to my whole family. I know she is where she wants to be. I loved her so much.
