Dear Gale and Marie and Family, I'm so sorry to hear about your sister Peggy. She was such a sweet lady. I loved seeing her at Walmart and talking to her. She was always busy, but she loved what she was doing and she was always smiling. I would ask about you all of the time. Now she is up there with your mom Issabelle She was a nice lady too. May God be with you and give you comfort I will pray for you and ask God to help you get through this difficult time. She is now your guardian angel watching over you. She will be missed. Love Lisa

So sorry to hear of her passing. She was a member of my Sunday School class and was always so friendly and helpful. She was an awesome greeter at Walmart and did so much for all the little kids with her stickers she gave out. She so enjoyed making their day and how they looked forward to her stopping and talking to them. She loved her family and enjoyed the time she spent with them. I will keep continue to keep the family in thought and prayer. Peggy will be missed.

I am so sorry to hear of Peggy's passing. She was my administrative assistant in the Group Pension Dept. at General American many years ago. She always so helpful, she spoiled me - which was lovely. Mostly, I remember her wonderful sense of humor. I'm sure she will be missed.

With deep sympathy,

Joanne Owen
