  6. Robert, Bill, Gaylan, Gary and Family, Peggy was such a caring and thoughtful lady. She was a wonderful cook (her brownies were delicious) and a great sense of humor (there were countless times she would crack me up, then we would get the giggles!). Peggy had great faith…she loved the Lord. I could fill up many pages with memories about her many talents, tender heartedness, giving spirit, She was a wonderful friend and Sister in Christ.
    You and your family are in our prayers .
    With Sincere Sympathy,
    Sallyanne Rowley
