    60 years ago Peggy graduated from Northeast High. and many
    others saw her as a sweet, perky and lovely girl. Now 60 yrs. later we know she became a woman of so many talents. mother, wife, grandmother and still the kind and perky woman of yesteryear. We, her classmates and friends will miss her too. May her family find peace and yet celebrate her wonderful life.
