    Peggy was a wonderful cousin of mine. I looked forward to her letters she would write me especially at Christmas. We would call each other from time to time. I will miss her very much. She had the sweetest personality and always that nice smile. She was a real sweetheart.

    Heaven sure has gained an angel . I will miss seeing Peggy on her early morning shopping trips to Pat’s Foods . One of my favorite people to visit with . She was so proud to be in the reading buddies program . Also very proud of her children and grandchildren . Would always fill me in of family get togethers and who was making what ! She will certainly be missed by all . Rest peacefully Peggy .

    My sincere condolences to Peggy’s entire family. She was one special lady, beautiful on the inside and outside. I looked forward to seeing her at Elmer’s when I was still working. She always greeted me with her gorgeous smile and a hug. Most times she was shopping for a family get together and was going to make something yummy for you all. There was no greater love than the love she had for her family. So thankful that she was my Mom’s (Jessie Conlon) best friend. Now they can reminisce in Heaven.

    Rest in Peace Peggy
    I have fond memories when she lived on trout lake road.

    Peggy is my Father’s sister, my Aunt is a very special person. Growing up we spent time with the family giving us cherished memories. Devoted to her family, exuding joy, it was clear hers was a happy life. Our family had 5 children, as did Peggy’s, giving our parents much in common. Sincere condolences go out to my Dad and all of Aunt Peggy’s children, grand children, great grandchildren, cousins, and friends who will miss her loving bright light.
