Peggy was a hard working, problem solving, book reading, puzzle loving, family supporting inspiration that touched many lives. She was a strong woman that beat cancer, loved her family without question and had a wonderful sense of humor. She loved reading her books, doing her puzzles and spending time with family. Her true faith in GOD is what made her such a strong, family oriented, woman.

Peggy also had 11 great-grandchildren and too many nieces, nephews and cousins to even begin to name.
