Harold, Pat and David,
Please accept my deepest sympathy in the loss of Aunt Peg. She was a wonderful lady, filled with so much love and laughter. I fondly remember trips up “north” to visit the extended family. Dinner always consisted of chop suey. It must have been her speciality. I remember watching the big movie screen from the house and wandering the neighborhood with the dogs. David and I would pal around and he would introdouce the “city” girl to a more laid back kind of life. Please know you and your extended families are in my prayers. Heaven rejoices at the death of one of it’s saints. To God be the glory! Love,

Harold, Pat & David,
it is with very fond memories that I send you my condolences. I too remember her great sense of humor and joy of having fun. Did you know that one time my Mom cut her hair? A nice gesture, however, she accidently used a regular scissors when she thought she had the pinking shears in her hand. Needless to say, a big clump of hair was removed that was not supposed to be removed. My Mom mentioned that quite a few times. But whenever she mentioned it, she always said that she couldn’t believe Peggy was not the least bit mad. She was very special. My prayers and thoughts go out to you and your families.
I was so sad when I heard about Aunt Peggy’s passing but was quickly comforted by memories of her sense of humor and smile. Growing up, I always looked forward to hearing her one-liners, stories and her laughter. I was so inspired that even over the past few months, she still had her wit and charm. You are missed and greatly loved on earth and in Heaven.
I was blessed to have been able to see you in good spirits so soon before your passing. What I will always remember about you is your wit and good humor that you had throughout your life. You will be missed by all who knew you. Love, your niece Colleen (Sullivan) Carey
Harold, our condolences to you and your family at this sad time. We didn’t get to see Aunt Peggy that often but when we did there were always funny stories and a lot of laughs about the people she knew, the things she’d done and the places she’d been. Just thinking about the Aunt’s & Uncles trips out east to visit us, the trip to Nova Scotia and our trips to the U.P. brings a smile to my face.
Mom & Dad told me a story about Aunt Peggy’s journey to their wedding in Chicago. Peg was driving and was pulled over by a Police Officer. The Officer walked up to the car and said, “Ma’am do you know how fast you were going?” Peg responded “Man, I was flying!” The officer laughed so hard he didn’t give her a ticket. She always saw the humor and fun of the moment and could help others to see it too.
She will be missed.

Another ole time family friend gone but not forgotten. There are a ton of good memories camping, snowmobiling, teasing Bert. I know you were considered a good friend of my mom’s and I have heard some good stories. Thoughts and prayers go to Harold “Mutt” and Pat & David and their families. Whose got the beans?

I’m so glad that Jean and I were with Peg just before she died. Those will be moments I treasure. Wish I could be with you now, but I’ll be thinking about all of you and saying a prayer for each. Dan sends his love too. Lu
My Aunt Peg was always so sweet to us and always had a joke to tell. As a young girl we’d go up to Michigan to visit everyone and every time we went to Aunt Peg’s house we’d ask to play with the bag of marbles she kept in the kitchen drawer and there they were, just waiting to be played with!!
Aunt Peg will be missed by us all. I’m so glad that mom was able to see her before she went. Now she’s up there keeping Aunt Mary company. You are all in my prayers.

I will miss seeing Mrs. Mattson come in for her paper. She always had a smile on her face no matter how she felt. She was a very sweet lady. My deepest sympathy to all of the family. Take care of yourself Mr. Mattson. I like seeing your smiling face too.

Our prayers are with you at this sad time. But I remember alot of fun times with Peggy over the years especially snowmobiling. Peggy was a good lady and she will be missed.
Jim and Wanda Frossard and family
Peggy was always one to make you smile, make you laugh. She found a way to keep her sense of humor with her to the end and to make us smile even today as we reflect upon our memories of times shared with Peggy. She will be missed. Our thought and prayer are with you all. Love, Amy and Rick
