Peggy was known to her friends and acquaintances as a friendly and funny soul. She was an advocate of laughter and believed in the power of the human heart. Moreover, Peggy was a person who talked with all despite their differences or upbringing. Peggy enjoyed athletics as a former attendee of the Turner Gymnasium program in Monongahela. She was the only female cheerleader for Monongahela High School during her time as a student. Besides a lifelong Steeler fan, she loved playing tennis, cards, and talking with her friends.
