    To my dear cousins, my Dad told me the heart breaking news that our precious Peg died. I am so very sorry and will be praying for you in this time of grief. I am assuming she was named after Grandma Q with the initial “J” for her middle name. I hope that she is in Grandma’s arms right now and enjoying the light and glory of heaven. Jesus loves you so much…lean on Him.

    Please accept my heartfelt sympathy. Peggy and I went to grade school together at St. Thomas More. Our parents were friends too. I live in Duluth, Minnesota. I was saddened to learn of Peggy’s death from another St Thomas More classmate. I will hold all of Peggy’s family in my thoughts and prayers!

    I was one of Peg’s 7 roommates at Kearney State College (as it was called then). She was also so much fun and full of life! Having grown up in south Omaha too, we both enjoyed going out and having a beer or 2. I’ll always remember her spinning around in her dads wheelchair at my wedding dance 😆Our prayers are with all of the family and please keep in touch on when the funeral mass will be. RIP my friend.

    So sorry to hear. Thoughts and prayers to the family. Think back fondly to Peg and her collies. Was always thankful when Peg was my nutritionist when I had a health issue.

    My deepest sympathies to the family and friends of Peggy. I went to grade school with Peggy at St. Thomas More. I remember her well, and she will be missed.

    So sorry to miss the memorial service. I knew Peg many years as a colleague at Alegent Health. As a dietitian, Peg was very professional and knowledgeable for her patients, while always showing compassion and respect. She helped many people, particularly those with eating disorders, diabetes, and obesity.. Rest In Peace, my friend.
