Peggy worked at what was to be a 6 week job at Roberts Foods in Dillon for 15 years. She loved to crochet, knit, garage sales, gardening and as her granddaughter Katie Snowden said “Grandma was a great cook. Nothing tasted better than the way Grandma made it. No one could cook like Grandma.” She also loved to play cribbage and pinochle. Her greatest love was her grandchildren and they loved their Granny. She was very independent. She took care of herself, mowed her own lawn, cooked for herself, shopped for herself and even drove herself where she needed to go. Christmas was Mom’s favorite holiday. She loved to collect angels, which she had hundreds of. She has now gotten her own wings and has become our Angel. We love you Mom and you will be greatly missed!
