Peg was married to my grandfather, Samuel Bowler. They had a great love for each other. I spent several summers at their home in McGill, Nevada. Grandpa taught me to play pool and Peg taught me about her love for Jesus. She devoted her whole life to service and love to others. I always thought of her as a second mom, as she was my mother's age. She was so fun to be around. I couldn't wait to see her. I love her and will miss her so much!

Aunt Sarah was a joy to be with and I have a lifetime of many fond and loving memories of her.
She loved her family with her whole heart and I’m hoping you will feel her loving embrace and go forward with the faith that she treasured and live the life she wanted for each of you.

Mom was the best when it came to helping our family and others! She would have given the shirt off of her own back if needed. We loved her and she will be missed!
