Following her retirement from the Army, Peggy fully immersed herself in her hobbies, showcasing unparalleled skill in various crafts and sewing projects. Her artistic pursuits expanded to include ceramics, porcelain work, and stained-glass creations. Her talent knew no bounds.
Peggy's generosity knew no bounds as well. She selflessly gifted many of her masterpieces to friends and family members, leaving behind cherished heirlooms that will forever remind them of her love and creativity.
