Peggy will be greatly missed by all that loved her. From the kids that she took care of at school while she was the school nurse to the girls she coached in cheerleading, she loved every single one of them. She has left a huge mark in this world and shoes that can’t be filled. She had a heart of gold.

She was so proud of her kids and REALLY loved her 7 grandkids. Our family was her world.

Thank you so much to friends and family for all of your support during this extremely difficult time.

Love you to the Unicorn Peggy Lou
