I went to school in Bridgeport with Peggy and she was always a special person. I am sorry for the family for your loss. My sincere sympathy to you all

I had arrived at Walmart to pick up a prescription for Mom and Dad when I noticed the cutest little old lady loading her groceries into her trunk. Approaching her I noticed it was Aunt Peggy. Of course, I told her she was the cutest little old lady I had ever seen. She chastised me shyly not wanting to be though of as old. I sat in her car with her that day and had a wonderful visit. I'm thankful to God for that impromptu meeting. Aunt Peggy truly had a gentle sweet spirit. She always reminded me of her mother, my sweet grandmother, both dearly loved.
