Always will remember Peggy as a very elegant lady.
I love you so much and I’m happy to know you are in a better place. I will never forget all of the memories we made together stingy!
I would like to express my deepest condolences for your loss. I am a student who visits the CCC – I met Marguerite about 2 years ago and we became friends. She was such a beautiful woman who never failed to put a smile on my face. She was always so joyful and she always expressed how proud she was of her family and friends. She is a friend I will never forget. I will be praying for all of you during this difficult time
It was comforting to know that we could count on Peggy to have the pulse of the entire family.
My deepest condolences to the family of Peggy. Denny Albaugh
