We would like to offer our memory of Peg. We are both from Mt. Calvary Lutheran Church and used to sew with Peg when she worked with the ladies of Mt. Calvary sewing quilts. Jayne Dunbar and Joan Bunnell. We also helped to take Peg to her doctor appts for her eyes. May she rest in peace.

Oh how I remember her smiling face! Years ago I swam with Peg at the Holiday Inn! I always was happy when I went to the pool and she was there! I also, on occasion, took my mom there to swim and found out that they had been friends growing up in the Summerhill Area! My moms name was Rosemarie (Bodenschatz) Weinzierl! I sure hope there is a big swimming pool in heaven!

Deepest sympathy Larry. I remember your mother well, always smiling and pleasant. God grant her peace and grant her family strength to fill the void with love for each other.

I knew her as Peg, my Mom (Millie), and myself would do ceramic painting in her basement when she lived in Johnstown. She was a great woman and will be sadly missed.
