My memories of Peggy come from the lovely Coffee Group I was invited to join two years ago when I moved to the St Margaret's Bay Area. The women in the group are a friendly, talented bunch and I heard many stories about the 50 years of the Coffee Club. Peggy wove wonderful yarns about growing up in the area and raising her daughter here. I especially loved the tales of accompanying Hugh to inspect and repair lighthouses. Peggy was a delightful woman with many talents and stories. I will miss her. Condolences to family and friends. Lynn Douglas

Peggy was a delightful lady and Hugh was a wonderful man. They both supported our South Shore Stamp Club in its early fledgling years by faithfully attending our yearly stamp fairs. They both always had a friendly and positive comment about another collector's stamp exhibit and were so welcoming to all. Their friendship and contributions to our hobby will be missed.
