Condolences to the family. I worked at Industrial Garment in Erwin with Peggy, she was always a delight and such an uplifting spirit. She was a dear friend and will be missed.
Peggys family, So sorry for your loss. My mother worked at Pardee Hospital also as a CNA with her. My mother is Marilyn Thompson.
She talked so much about her.
She has dementia now but remembered her. .
Cindy and all the family I am so sorry to hear about Mrs Frances. She was a very sweet lady. I always enjoyed seeing her at Forest Lawn when she would come visit your dad’s grave if she ever seen me she would always say so good to see you and give me that special hug she always referred to me as ( that tall man). I will miss seeing her but will always remember the good memories. May God bless all of you at this time
I loved my Peg soooo much
