Peggy worked as a bookkeeper for many years for numerous hospitals and

important to Peggy and she loved sewing and cooking for them.
Always the ultimate “people person” Peggy never met a stranger. If fact,
she was a people magnet and loved to talk to all those she encountered.
At home she always made sure that her house was in order. She was

in its proper place. This carried over to her hair and makeup as well, 
where everything had to be perfect.
