    Peg was not only a dear friend of mine, but also of my mother years ago in the Women’s Union at Allin Church. I’ll always remember the twinkle in Peg’s eyes when she greeted me on Sunday mornings. She was always concerned about others’ well-being rather than sharing her own woes. She was a very selfless, sweet lady. She will be missed!

    My deepest sympathy to Bob, Maryellen, Khara, and Jeff. I loved Aunt Peg with all my heart and all my soul. We were kindred spirits, connected by faith and regular phone calls. She lived life and left this life on her own terms. I am so grateful for her and Uncle My and the second family that they made for me. Their love and faithfulness to me and to each other was extraordinary. I’m glad they are back together again. Love.
