Peggy enjoyed playing Bingo, shopping, and going to yard sales where she could continue to add to her many collections. She loved going to her favorite beach, Assateague Island State Park, in Ocean City, MD with her family. Peggy truly was a genuine and one of a kind person with a heart of gold. She treated everyone as her friend and would do anything for anyone. Peggy was an amazing “Nanny” to her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
