Lori and Jim, I will miss your Mom's "Christian enthusiasm", her delight in her church and her spirituality. She always had a warm greeting and a smile. She could be counted on to be an active participant in the weekly Bible study, always eager to express and understand her faith.
Lori, I'm so sorry to hear this. I remember all the wonderful times we shared at RCPE. Peg was a wonderful friend to my mother.
An incredible woman. Strong, intelligent,warm,local volunteer who would go out of her way to help anyone in need. My condolences to her son and daughter.
I first met Peg several years ago. She saw me walking and it started to rain so she offered me a ride back to my car. What a wonderful person. My thoughts and prayers go out to the Nichols family.
Our deepest sympathy Lori and Jimmy in the loss of your mom. She was a very sweet, kind and thoughtful woman, neighbor and friend. May she rest in peace and God Bless Her ! 😢🙏💔 The Aubel Family
