    This is a wonderful tribute to your mother, Dan. She truly was the Queen of Mirth throughout her life, through thick and thin. She will be greatly missed.

    Peggy embraced me when I came to work at Marquette, she was fun loving and didn’t take life too seriously. We work directly down the hall from one another and visited often. Peggy was a giving individual and on her last day here at Marquette, she brought broaches from her collection for me to choose from to remember her by. I was like, Peggy, you are unforgettable broach or no broach. I still have it and will always treasure it. I pulled it out the other day and reminisced about our time together. I helped her carry her things to her office as she cleared it out on her last day at Marquette. Peggy, RIP.

    Aunt Peggy you will be truly missed. I will always remember your huge heart and even greater smile.

  • Dear Danny,

    Our thoughts and prayers are with you during this very sad time. After we spoke on the phone, I received a phone call from Aunt Sue and Uncle Jerry Tschudy. She saw the newspaper obit and called me to ask some questions. Of course they both send their condolences to you. Your mother and my mother were very close in their lives as they shared their love of mystery books and crocheting. Your mom will be missed by all. We will see you on Saturday. God Bless!

    Hi Dan,

    I remember your mother’s kindness and good cheer, like a good Scout mom should be! I am very sorry for your loss. Wishing you strength and peace.
