To Peg’s family,
So sorry for your loss.
I was a classmate of Peggy’s at Clear Creek/Oxford.
I remember her with lots of fun times.

I must say that I was a bit frightened by Peg when I began in housing 20 years ago. Her quiet, strong and serious demeanor was a little daunting. But I soon learned that if you were loyal to your work and to Peg, she was loyal in return. It seemed like there was nothing Peg couldn't get done! RIP, Peg, you will sorely be missed.

My deepest sympathy for your loss. Peg was a terrific co-worker. I really enjoyed her stories about the family and having the kids visit the office when they were young. I missed her when she retired and I will remember her always.

Peg was an icon and "go to" person on campus, who could make the earth move and things happen in no time. She so cared about everyone else and the students. The world will miss her. Hugs and prayers to the family.
