Family was everything for Peggy. Whether you were one of her many children and grandchildren or a family friend, she welcomed you with loving arms and a good meal. Anyone who met her would’ve described her as welcoming, strong-willed, comforting, and humble. She was an amazing example of a wife, sister, mother and grandmother. Her favorite thing to do was spend time with her family whom she was so proud of. She was the cheerleader for all of her family’s endeavors, and was beyond proud of each of their achievements. Peggy enjoyed getting her nails and hair done, shopping, spending time with her children, giving advice to her grandchildren, and playing with her great-grandchildren. She looked forward to the day that she would see her mother again.
