    My sympathy to you on the loss of your mother.
    I knew Peg through Raleen Vrana, but the biggest surprise when I first met her was that she was married to an old school mate of mine, Nick Woita. I would see Peg and Nick occasionally over the years at some of the Vrana events and she was always so friendly and a pleasure to visit with. God be with you during this difficult time.

    I am so sorry to hear of Peg’s death. I worked with her at Lincoln General Hospital 1974-1975. We have kept is touch through Facebook and I saw her last when she had her knee placement surgery at Lakeside prepandemic. She was a great nurse and a lot of fun to be around. I did not know she was Ill. God ‘s peace be with you.

    We were so sorry to hear Peg had passed. She was our neighbor in Wahoo for the past few years, and always had a story to tell or a treat for our kids. I enjoyed our visits and will treasure the brief time we knew her. Thoughts and prayers for her family at this time.

    I’m so sorry to hear about Peg’s passing. I’m a first cousin that knew her and was delighted to have her as my first “girl cousin” among a lot of boy cousins. Although I’ve lived far away in Cambridge, MA for many years I have good memories of her as a caring person, and I want to send my warmest sympathies to her family.

    Dearest Peggy: Your laugh, your wit, sardonic looks, your thoughtfulness, your “no BS” attitude and mostly your loving devotion to family and friends will be missed.
    I’ll miss hearing you call out ”BOBBY” at family gathering.
    I so enjoyed growing up and old with you!
    We will miss you!
    Bob and Patty

    I am so sorry to hear about Peg’s death. We were first cousins, and I’m the oldest of our many cousins. Due to World War II, there was a large age gap between my sister, (Sandra Minor), myself, and our “Bryan” cousins. However, because we were several years older than Peg we were able to enjoy watching her, her siblings, and all of our cousins grow up from small children to adulthood. It made for busy but very enjoyable family get-togethers. My condolences to the family.

    Rest in peace dear Peg. My deepest sympathy to all her family, she will be deeply missed.
