Peggy was a school teacher. During her career she taught all but one grade.

She was an active member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and served in many volunteer positions including serving as full-time mission with her husband in Spokane Washington.
Peggy’s favorite hobby was working with her hands making numerous crocheted scarves, pot holders, clothing and other items which she freely gave away to friends and those in need.
She also enjoyed painting, but her favorite times were when she traveled with her husband and when she had an opportunity to have fun with her grandchildren and great grandchildren.
