"To Our Sweet Cousin Peggy,

I remember when we visited together at your Grandfather Mike and
Grandmother Fran's home.  They loved you dearly and in return
you gave them much happiness.  The family gatherings were
filled with kindness and care for our family.  You will be missed

"I keep putting off leaving a message because I don't know what to say.  Words cannot begin to express the sorrow of knowing that Peggy is now longer part of this world.  I have known Peggy since elementary school.  We may not have always kept in touch, but just knowing she was safe in TN was good enough for me.  I even got a chance to stop in and see her when I was there a few years ago.  Peggy had one of the most loving hearts of anyone I knew.  She was also one of the most artistic people I knew.  I loved the Raggedy Ann dolls she used to make and then the quilts she made.  Mike, Ian, Christopher and Family - My love and prayers are with you."

"Kind, loving, patient and strong are only a few words that discribe my darling Aunt Peggy. So many of my most cherished memories are times that we spent together. The countless hours I spent with you at your salon, every single customer was your best friend. You had a way of making everyone feel so special (you got that from Grandma Francis).
You were the cool aunt when we went for drives and turned the radio up to "volume max" and sang along to Red Red Wine at the top of our lungs. You were the patient aunt when I felt lost and confused, you'd curl up next to me in my bed, tuck my hair behind my ear and give me advise that I continue to apply to my every day life. You were the strong aunt when you were diagnosed with cancer at 23 fought it and WON!
And a lot of the time you were the silly aunt like when we went for walks in "fart in the park" or when we would sit on the floor playing board games and it was Chris's turn you'd say "Chrisgo" (like crisco)
And of course, one of my favorite memories (it'll never get old). The time all of us went berry picking, we caught sight of a nice ripe bunch so Mike pulled over and Chris and I went to work gathering the best berries. I lost my footing and rolled down the mountain. As I lay there helpless, you yelled down to me with a concerned sound in your voice....
"Are the berries okay?!"
The rest of the drive home we all laughed til we cried and we still laughed about it throughout the years.
Oh Peggy, you are so precious. Such an amazing Mother, Wife, Daughter, Sister, Grandmother, and Friend. You will be missed dearly
Your memories will live on through the people you left behind when you were called back home. Til we meet again

P.S. I love you Mike, Chris, and Ian."

"Peggy, I remember all those childhood carefree days of spending hours roaming the hill sides and swinging on tree tires.  You always had a sweet and lovely sparkle in your eyes.  Go with God now and roam those streets of gold and swing from the tree of life.  You are in a better place... But we will miss you.    My love to every family member.  May God's comfort surround you!"

""For my sweet, kind and loving little sister"!  
             For happy times shared through the years
                For loyalty, love, laughter and tears.
                For the special things only you can do.
                              For all of these...
                               I THANK YOU...
                   Time and space may separate us,
                      But heartstrings know no end.
                           I'm proud to call you...
                               ❤️  MY SISTER...
                          Happier still to call you...
                               ❤️ MY FRIEND.
As I face the days that follow the loss of you...
I cannot help but wonder how I will get through...
You inspired me with your strength and love...
Your bright shining light as if from God above...
My compass broken by a loss so deep...
Forever in my heart as if a part of me...
Here on earth I will no longer see...
The blue in your eyes or the touch of your face...
Shine your light on me from above...
Share your secrets of peace and love...
And guide me till we are sisters again...
In the life beyond with no beginning or end...
I couldn't have been blessed with a more perfect sister. The bond we shared was special beyond words. Our hearts and soul will forever be connected. You listened, you cared, you shared and you loved. My talks with you will be forever treasured. I knew early on you were special from the start. You will always hold a special place in my heart. I promised you long ago I would be there. To help you with those you hold dear. I was blessed the day you were born my sister and blessed to be there as you took your last breath.
You were a treasured mother, wife, daughter, granddaughter, sister, aunt, niece and friend. My children were spoiled with your talents of home made clothes, quilts and cooking. You shared your home and treated them like they were your own.
This sister of mine was a cancer survivor, an inspiration to us all. She pushed herself all the time not wanting the disease to govern her quality of life. The last thing she wrote to me on her birthday was "Thank you Seesta"

"My sweet sweet aunt Peggy how I love and miss you so. When I think of all everything we've done together I become overwhelmed with joy. You treated me like your daughter. You braided my hair, gave me makeup/fashion advice and sometimes took me to run errands with you. I will never forget you opening your heart to me as a bereaved child. Helping me learn how to be a more kind a gentle person. My absolute favorite memories is when we were pen pals AND when you were my lunch lady. I will try my best to be the best aunt, mother, wife and daughter I can be thanks to you."

"I first met Peggy when her and mike opened their home to us in oak creek. She was such a beautiful lady with a kind and gentle soul. I still occasionally put cinnamon in my coffee like she got me hooked on for awhile."

"Peg was such a kind, loving person, and always a joy to be around. I know that's how she'll always be remembered.
It's a tragic loss for everyone who knew her, but what a beautiful success story that she overcame that terrible disease and went on to raise 3 terrific boys (Yes Mike, you too) who loved and cherished her. It's so hard to say goodbye, but should be much easier to celebrate her life.  
Your family is in our prayers and thoughts."

This tribute was added by Diana Davis Ornelas on 20th April 2016

"Where do I start. So many memories! Peggy and I became friends in High School along with Kelli Davidson and Louann Bates. The four of us were thick as thieves! We were on the flag team for 3 years and spend so much time together at both school events and non school events. She tolerated my piece of junk of a car (but hey it ran) and only made fun of it occasionally. Cruzing Valley Pkwy in Esc was our favorite activity on Fri & Sat nights and I will never forget hearing her squeal when either Loverboy or Billy Squire came in on the AM radio. (Ya we are that old!) screaming at the boys like only a gaggle of teen aged girls can. Flirting with "Shane" in the blue van because in our young eyes he was sooooo cool. I treasure the memories of our youth. As we grew older, distance separated us all, but the love of friendship was always there. I have been fortunate to have Peggy a part of my life and will always have a special place in my heart for her and her family."

"I knew Perry, her brother, in High School in San Marcos. It was through him that I knew of Peggy. I am so saddened to hear another life taken too soon. My heart is with the family at this difficult time. I will pray for strength and clarity for her husband, her parents, siblings, and her children. As I read through her tributes here, it's a blessing to hear that she lived a life where she was loved and appreciated. I pray that you all will feel the Arms of Jesus comforting you during this time and the time to come."

"I met Peggy when she came to Oak Creek, CO. We were also neighbors to her and Mike. The best neighbors I've ever had. We would just stand outside and just talk. Time would just pass and then we would realize it had been and hour and a half or two. She was so easy to talk too. She cut my hair as well. I am sadden to hear of her passing. She was like no other. Heaven has received a special angel."
