We have missed seeing Peg at our Lions meetings and activities these past few years. Unfortunately we just found out about her passing, too late to attend services.
I watched the beautiful video of Peg and her family members- I recognized her beautiful smile that she always brought to our Village Lions.
Deepest sympathy to all family members and friends.
