Peg and I worked together at United in the late 70's. She was a wonderful co-worker!!
I had my first child a daughter named Lindsay in 1980 and Peg crocheted the most beautiful set of baby items for her. Those items are still treasured today!! She really cared for people and was a friend to many. I'm sorry to hear of her passing and I will keep all in my prayers.
