Peggy! What a ray of sunshine she was. She had a way about her and she really would light up a room. I loved her sense of style. I ran right over to her at Ed’s retirement at the senior center and we chatted away. We talked about fashion, a little about photography and she made me laugh quite a bit! She gave me some great advice. She was an amazing woman. I’m so sorry for your loss.

Our sympathy to all members of Peg's family, she leaves a tremendous legacy of love and kindness to all. When I was asked to start the St Vincent de Paul conference at St. Anselm's my first call was to Peggy. I knew if she agreed to join our team, we would survive and thrive. Her compassion for all we helped was a true legacy that will be unmatched. Our group will go on and Peggy will now be our guardian Angel. God bless you, our dear friend, give Joe a hug for us!

Peggy was a bright, shining star in the sky of humanity and I am so blessed to have shared in her life for the past 9 1/2 years as he beloved neighbor and friend. When I think of Peggy I see a bright red rose in full bloom. Her beauty stemmed from the great big, loving, heart that she had inside her. Peggy and Joe went far above and beyond anything that would be considered just a neighbor. They were unique people in every positive sense of the word. Their warmth, love, support and actions spoke volumes about the genuine character they both possessed. I will greatly miss Peggy in my life from this day forward. It is with a heavy heart that I morn her loss. My prayers and deep sympathy go out to all of Peggy's relatives and friends. May she rest in peace with the Lord God in Heaven today and forever. Danny Boy!

Peggy always had the biggest & most beautiful smile! A fond memory that I have of her is when she had visited her mother, Annie, in the nursing home and spotted me working with a group of residents in the Day Room with an entertainer. She grabbed my hand and danced with me to add some sparkle to the occasion. My (& Fran's) sincere condolences to her family who survive her: what a gift she was!

My condolences to Peggy's loved ones. She was always warm and helpful as a greeter and usher , telling me if my family had arrived yet and which pew I would find them in at St. Anselms. She was a loving, wonderful example for us, being beautiful , consistently dressed up including her many hats, showing us that the Eucharist and Mass is a special time. God bless her. May she rest in peace. Anna
