  • Peggy was a beautiful and talented lady. I have known her since before Lisa was born when she was our neighbor in Fredericktown. More recently when we met, she always asked about my son and she would share loving stories of her family. I send my sincerest condolences to her family. I will certainly miss her.

  • I met Peggi when Jason and Trent played tennis in high school.We had a good time cheering our boys on although we were alittle exuberant for a gentlemen’s sport! !!lol…She was a delight to be around…I know we would have been great friends had we lived closer. So glad she is praising her Savior in music as we speak.My prayers for you all as you say goodbye for now to a lovely lady .Hugs,my friends.

  • I have known Peggi Springer for many years. She was blessed with many gifts from the Lord … among them was her ability to not only play the piano with great skill but the ability to Compose music and songs that were a great blessing not only to God but also to others!
    Her greatest gift however was the gift of love that she shared so graciously with everyone that she knew!!
    It always amazed me how deeply she cared for the aged and the extent that she went to to make their life more joyous!
    I thank God for her life as it has touched me deeply and I’m so glad that she is in heaven playing her lovely songs while others are dancing around! Her love and joy will be greatly missed! As the words to one of the songs that she composed says:
    “A Merry Heart Doeth Good Like a Medicine”

  • I am so sorry for the loss of your mother. She had a beautiful voice and was a wonderful pianist. I met both Larry and Peggi at Emmanuel Baptist Church and through Youth for Christ. Rev Ward was minister at the time and Peggi and I sang many duets together. Larry became the love of my life and his loss changed my life forever. I remember Peggi as a majorette in the high school marching band and a member of The Forum Court. She loved her all of her children dearly. God bless all of her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren at the sad time.

  • I never met Peggi but I heard many wonderful things about her. May God be your comfort and strength at this hard time. Love & prayers!

  • Oh where do I begin. Peggi and I have been girl friends since we were just little girls. We lived across Newark Road from each other and our parents were friends also. Peggi spent many over night get togethers at our home. Her parents and my parents worked together to start the Emmanuel Baptist Church. Peggi and I sang a duet there one Sunday. We were also in Youth For Christ together. Oh Peggi had such a talent of playing the piano! After I got married and moved to Colorado when I was 28 every time I went back to Mt Vernon to visit I always got together with Peggi . Such a wonderful Christian lady and friend Peggi was to everyone. Will be so missed.

  • Peggy is a beautiful person that l had the privilege to meet. She was very loving and very talented. And now she is with Jesus, enjoying His presence for evermore.

  • I am very sorry for the loss of your Mother. She was a great lady, energetic, fun loving..I also worked at the Living Center, She was good with all the people… Especially enjoyed hearing her play the piano !! God Bless you all .

  • Thinking about all of you! I have loved my interactions with Peggi! Her love for her Lord was shown by her actions and words. I will miss her on her walks with her dog and the chats that we had or her sweet smile as she drove by. I admired her energy, positivity and talents! Prayers are with you all. She will be missed!

  • Sam, Eric, and family,

    We were so sad to hear about your mother. She was a very special woman. There is no other love like a mother’s’ love! God Bless! Prayers to all of you!

  • I worked at The Living Center with Peggi. She was so vivacious and talented and everyone loved her dearly. I send my deepest condolences to her family and friends.

  • Aunt Peggi would light up every room she walked into, and when she left it a glow would remain in the hearts of all she touched. For those of us who loved her, a light has left, but the glow remains. My earliest memory of her was her swinging me by my arms, and me saying, “again! again!” And I remember being the ring bearer in her wedding and not liking it when that strange man (the pastor) took my aunt’s ring from the pillow. Almost all of my memories of her are filled with joy and laughter. She’s the only person I know that could get her quiet sister, Lois (my mom) in stitches, even one time in prayer meeting (much to my pastor-father’s surprise). As much as I sorrow at her loss, I rejoice in what she now has found–the fulfillment of her promise in her Savior of eternal joy in His presence, and joining with her loved ones who have gone before her.

  • To All of Peggy’s Family and Friends, The wonderful music that Peggy provided for all of us here on earth has been silenced, but what wonderful music is going on in Heaven. Sending you our deepest sympathy and friendship. Sincerely, Susan (Nash) and Dick Huggins/Fredericktown

  • To all of Peggy’s family:
    She touched many and all hearts who knew her. I remember walking into my first Christian women meeting in 1980 and hearing the beautiful piano music! Then meeting this beautiful, vivacious, fun lady named Peggy Springer!
    Over the years we worked together in CWC and our paths crossed often through our jobs, She always had a smile on her face and brought joy to all!
    She truly left a indelible mark on everyone she met! Sadly missed, but rejoicing that she is with Our Lord and Savior!

  • My prayers and love to all of Peggis family.
    She was a devoted mother, grandmother, great grandmother, and friend to all who knew and loved her.
    We were friends all through high school and all these years after. She has left behind wonderful memories.y
    I never saw her without her beautiful smile. A Christian woman who loved her Lord and Savior.
    She is a true angel in heaven as she was on earth.
    She will be missed.

  • My sincere condolence to Peggi’s family,
    I met Peggi years ago when she joined the activities staff at a local nursing home where I was employed. Her musical talent was not only enjoyed by the residents, but by the staff, visitors, and volunteers.
    She became known through out the Knox County community for her amazing musical talent on the key board, her vocals, her composing, her stage presence–and for her love for Christ.
    When the opportunity arose for Peggi to join the staff at The Living Center, she was hired, and she crafted an awesome activities program for the residents.
    I will miss her lemon chess pie, her baking and cooking skills, and special theme parties she hosted. Most of all, I will miss Peggi’s friendship, the love, the joy, the light, the prayers, and the concerns we shared along life’s way.
    She is sadly missed, but I am rejoicing she is now with Our Lord and Savior!
    Again, my condolences to her dear family.
    Peggi truly lived her FAITH.

  • Oh, my dear, dear sweet Peggi, I will always miss your sweet smile. Thank you for being my friend.

    Love and prayers to your family. Know that many people cared deeply for Peggi.
    The Heavenly Choir have welcomed her home; she in good hands.

    Blessings for your family today and always.

  • Sorry to see the loss of a great Christian woman. She will be missed but she is home now. I new Peggi through a former church under the Pastor Merlyn Jones. She was a good piano player. One day we will meet again.

  • To the Springer Family.

    Your loss is felt by all of us who knew your mother and grandmother. Ms Peggi Springer exuded grace, a beautiful smile, and always a welcoming and warm disposition. It was an honor and pleasure to have known her and to have heard her play music. I know she was proud of the accomplishments of her children, doted on her grandchildren and was a comforting presence at family gatherings. Even though I knew Peggi during brief interludes, I was always left with a sense of having been in the presence of a gentle and generous soul.

    May her soul rest in eternal peace.

  • Peggi was such a dynamic and wonderful person.
    She was always a ray of sunshine at the Living Center. Prayers for her family and friends.

  • This woman was a breath of fresh air and had a smile that make you smile in return. We probably first met her at a ball field or basketball court as she was an avid supporter of her grandchildren. She was the kind of person you look forward to seeing because the love she had for people. She was genuine. To her family, may you all find peace in knowing she touched lives and our prayers are with you all as you go through this loss.

  • Our family met Peggy when our mother went to live at the Living Center and Peggi was the Activities Director. She was always such a bright light and a loving person to our mother and to all the Residents, and we all enjoyed how very talented she was on the piano. She was such a Godly soul and it was a blessing to have known her. Our thoughts and prayers are with her family.

  • I was so moved to read the many condolences about dear Peggi Springer. My contact with her was through Ohio Eastern Star and The Living Center as I visited church friends and former neighbors who were residents in those facilities. Peggi had a sparkle and a loving way of entertaining the folks I visited. Her musical abilities and people skills were amazing… true gifts from God.
    While praying today for her family and friends, I played a tape of her beautiful hymns and imagined her continuing her gifts in heaven as she joins other beloveds there.
