As a homemaker, wife and mother, Peggy was devoted to her family and was always happiest when she was surrounded by her children, their children, their friends, neighbors, the neighbor's children...she was everyone's "MomMom." She touched so many lives with her welcoming kindness and affection, brightening any room with her laughter and generous spirit.
