Peg graduated from the University of Minnesota with  Bachelor of Science degree.

She was Rehabilitation Area Manager, when she retired. Peg hoped to winter in Brownsville, Texas, where she had purchased and refurbished a mobile home, and where she had many friends at Palm Resaca Mobile Home Park. Unfortunately, Covid interrupted her plans to do that this past winter.  Peg loved animals and volunteered fostering many cats for a no kill shelter called Caring for Cats in North St Paul. She loved fishing and camping with family, especially at Trout Lake, and spending time with friends. She loved to laugh and had a ready smile. She loved being Auntie to her 10 nieces and nephews and  six great nieces and nephews. She was an active member in her church, Holy Cross Lutheran Church in Oakdale and ran a Zoom bible study. Peg is survived by siblings; Claire, Mark, Kathleen and Patricia.
