  • Neil and Family we send our deep condolences to you with the passing of Peggy. She was a precious and talented lady who put a lot of her life into the church and the community. Peggy and I (david) wern't born that far apart as I grew up in Cherokee, Iowa. Arla always marveled over her crafts and I just appreciated her grit and tenacity. I wish I could have worked with her in church and I could have learned a lot about teaching kids. May God grant you peace and safety as you spend time together and then make the trips back to your homes. ~ DAVID AND ARLA OLSON WALL (3/27/2020)

  • So happy to have known Peggy and so saddened by her passing. Neal and Peggy were good friends of my parents, Merl and Eileen, and it was through that friendship that we got to see Peggy's talents, especially when it came to quilting (truly an artist). Peggy is also the one who taught a ceramics class in Wall attended by Eileen and was the creative catalyst for the many gnomes that decorated my parent's homes for years. Peggy would be happy to know that the gnomes have, following Mom's passing, migrated to many family members with one residing in Colorado, another in Oregon, Minnesota and Montana with the luckiest finding its way to Hawaii. Just like Peggy, they found their way into many hearts. ~ Dwight & Melanie Flatt Chandler, AZ (3/26/2020)
