My deepest condolences on your loss of Peggy. Peggy was a good friend of mine at the Tualatin school house pantry, where we both volunteered. She was interesting, upbeat, helped with whatever needed doing and was a pleasure to be with. It brightened my time there to have her working next to me. She always maintained a positive attitude throughout her bout with cancer and looked great when I saw her after her treatments had finished. I never heard her complain even once about anything she went through. She never lost hope and was anxious to meet for lunch, dinner or just keep in touch via texts. She was an amazing, inspirational woman and I’m proud that I got to know her even for such a short time. Sue Ann

Dear Jonathan and the extended Beck Family,
I knew Peggy through work in Evanston and will remember her warmth and generosity. Always one to support her family, friends and community; I can picture her in a bandanna & apron at the soup kitchen, up to her elbows in food prep or clean up. Such a good sport. She'll be missed by many, and I hope the good memories will help all of you get through this difficult time.
