  • Cloyd and family. So hard to believe that she is no longer get with us. Praying for you all and thinking of you as I remember many times we have shared as a family. Our summers were always full of so much activity such a bike riding, Mohican Forest and just drives for ice cream. The never ending supply of chocolate chip cookies (very best ever). The chocolate birthday cakes and home made ice cream and Ron’s Pizza. The love she had for animals and how she loved going to the Wilds and the zoo. Most of all I will miss how Peggy always laughed at herself especially when. Playing games. She will be missed so. God Bless to you all.

  • Cloyd and family, so sad about Peggy. Makes me glad now that the last time I saw her, I sat beside her at the Longbranch Pizza place in Centerburg. Cloyd, you may not remember that, but I do. It’s always hard to lose a loved one, but at this time of year, makes it feel even worse. Please know you all are in our thoughts and prayers.
    God bless you all🙏🏻
