something, and enjoyed crafting and scrapbooking.

word games, cribbage, darts and pool in her day, and had many beloved
pets through the years. Peg really enjoyed the holidays, but she especially
enjoyed Christmas. She loved Christmas carols, making cookies,
decorating, and collecting beautiful ornaments. She really loved to
entertain, and to have fun. If you entered her home for any given event,
