Peggy loved working with the Department of Kansas Employment services where she enjoyed supervising, encouraging summer youth as they completed their job service each summer.

Peggy enjoyed taking classes and studied business and computers at Fort Scott CC/Pittsburg State University. She enjoyed living in Wyoming, hunting, fishing, and camping, and she was her children's biggest fan as they competed in sports and in life. Peggy also loved spending time by the ocean and inherited that Italian gene of being an amazing cook.
