Peg celebrated life to the fullest with the help of the Blessed Mother, God the Father, Son, and the Holy Spirit. She was the central heartbeat of the family and was a private, kind, and trustworthy confidant. She was known to occasionally "bribe the Saints" for requests for others and "paid back" by being generous in words, thoughts, and actions. She raised 9 children and helped to shape them to be the best that they could be. She was often found with a book in her hand, had a hearty cackle, and sang and swayed to the 50's music. She taught life lessons through the simple acts of listening, guidance, with no judgement, and creating a sanctuary in her arms to embrace her loved ones during the sad, challenging and rough times as well as celebrating the happy, and joyous moments. She will be sorely missed, never forgotten, and loved always. The family will receive family and friends on Sunday, August 8th, 2021 from 1:00pm-5:00pm at S. J.
