Peggy was always one of the the nicest people Ive ever known. I loved just sitting and talking with her when i had the chance. She was always in the mood to laugh! I'll never forget my birthday when she bought me a scratch ticket. She said she'd never bought one before, she didnt know what to ask for at the counter so she just pointed at the treasure one. It was a $500 winner! I know she will be missed by many.

Aunt Peggy reminded me so much of Grandma Miller. She always had that beautiful smile on her face. I married into the family, but Peggy always made me feel like I was very much part of the Miller's. She was such a talented musical. She was dealt some hard things in her adult life, but with her attitude one would of never known it....she blessed everyone around her. We love you Aunt Peggy and we will deeply miss you♡ we again some day will sing with the Angel's. I can only imagine the most beautiful smile on your face today♡standing with our Heavenly Father♡

I always remember Aunt Peggy trying to teach us kids how to do the twist, when we came for a visit to Wichita. She was laughing, and having so much fun. I think a hula hoop even was in the works. ha ha She always reminded me of my grandma Miller with her laugh. Hugs to the family and love.
