Peggy grew up in Nebraska, living a modest life, moving from farm to farm, and like most families during the depression era, they made do with what they had and worked very hard to make ends meet.  Her family operated a fruit and vegetable stand in North Omaha.  This was her beginning love for gardening and canning.  After graduating from North High School, she worked at Dunn and Bradstreet and attended polka dances at Sokol Hall with her friends, Ruth Ann and Phyllis, and met her future husband.  Peggy also worked at Bergan Mercy Hospital in the ER as a receptionist, Dumplings/The Dutch Oven as a cook, and Prime Liver Packing as a line operator.  She was very active in her parish, St. Columbkille, with an active role in the funeral luncheons and parish school, Sacred Heart, where her children attended.  Peggy loved baking (chocolate chip cookies), gardening, and canning (green beans and tomatoes) for her family and friends.

    Peggy was a wonderful lady and always had a smile on her face. She will be missed very much. So very sorry.

    Peggy was such a ray of sunshine. I live across they street and she would always holler over “oh honey” come over and get some tomatoes and cucumbers. I would always have nice chats with Clarence and Peggy when they would sit outside on their swing under the tree. They will be greatly missed. Best neighbors ever!
