  1. Maureen Wheeler

    Nanny, Diddy and Hurlow, my deepest sympathies to the three of you. You have been the most devoted siblings anyone could ask for. Peggy was blessed to have you looking out for her day in and day out. Your constant love and consistent care over the years gave Peggy so much happiness. I was lucky to have known her and to witness your love for her. Praying that all your good memories bring you peace.

  2. Barbara and Joseph Menovich

    We were so very sorry to hear of Peggy’s passing. You are in our thoughts and prayers.

  3. Holly Angerson

    I’m so sorry for your loss. Peggy was a great person. I enjoyed caring for her for 15 years. She will be incredibly missed by anyone who had the pleasure of knowing her. I know she’s with your Mom and Dad (most likely tattling on both of you)! My Mom sends her condolences also. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you. Sending much love, Holly Angerson and Ann Marie Underhill
