    Peggy was a special friend and next door neighbor to my mom at Deephaven Woods Assisted Living Facility. She always was upbeat, with a positive outlook, and had a wide range of interests. When my mom returned from a recent hospital visit, she was greeted at her door by a colorful poster that Peggy made welcoming her back home! Peggy never mentioned her work as a student advisor at the University of Minnesota, nor her long volunteering work with the Brave New Workshop. It was a unique honor that after 10 years of volunteering, the Brave New Workshop created a scholarship in her name to support people and programs that use improvisation to do good in the community.

    Peggy will be greatly missed, our prayers go out to all Peggy’s family.
