Peggy was a life long friend. Our lives came together at Lock Haven University where we were room mates for four years. Our paths took different directions at graduation but we stayed close through letters, visits and reunions. She will always remain close in my heart.

I was lucky to have met this incredible woman and spend a short time with her as a volunteer. She loved talking about her family and all the sport activities during her lifetime. My deepest sympathies go out to the family and friends.
