Peggy believed that life should be lived with no regrets, and this positive attitude helped her battle her 3-year arduous ordeal with cancer.
Peggy always lived her life to the fullest in whatever she did, whether it was regular walks with her neighborhood walking ladies' group, studying the stock market with her stock market study group, Athena, spending time with her grandchildren, or lunching with her many friends. Peggy's love of life was infectious and she positively impacted all who knew her in her little town of Los Altos Hills.

Peggy was a loving wife, beloved mother, and the quintessential grandmother. She always put her family first.
