Peggy graduated from Rising Sun High School in 1952. She worked at Cecil National Bank in Port Deposit, MD, until the birth of her children. Peggy had a heart for family. She often said, "There is nothing like being a grandmother!" Her love united all and created a place for each person to call home at Carron Hill Farm. She spoiled her family rotten with her famous rolls and sticky buns. Front and center at sporting events and concerts, Peggy was a champion of each family member's success. Everyone knew they were loved by Peggy.
Over the years, her service extended outward as Swimnastics Instructor at the YMCA, Helping Hands Decorator for Sandy Cove, and a Sunday School and Bible School Teacher at Pleasant View Baptist Church and Ebenezer United Methodist Church. She loved the Lord, and was a devoted wife, mother and grandmother.
