Aunt Peg was a sweet and kind person. I always enjoyed her and Uncle Pete’s visits when I was young. This past summer at the family reunion we were euchre partners and it will forever be a happy memory for me. -Allen Burton
I will cherish the many times Aunt Peg and Uncle Pete came to visit us. The many Euchre games with all of the cousins are memories that will be with me always. You will be missed. -Love Becky Jane Wilhelm
